Saturday's workout "Broken Glass)

The theme at Saturday's workout is actually a wonderful German proverb, that I know works in dutch too, but I have never actually come across in English, namely, broken glass or any chards really, bring luck! What a wonderful thought and a great comfort after you have, say, just broken your most favourite plate, glass or whatever. Anyway, the idea is to create a piece of art with "broken glass" in it. Decided to use the fake method of using Utee. I've had this happen to me a few times when I did not really want it to happen, so it was very satisfying, to do it purposely for once.

Astrid, what a successful cracking of UTEE!!! This is just so perfect. I love the colors in your background and the charming images. Also, thanks for that explanation about the shards of glass bringing good luck. I had never heard that before.

Astrid - you made me laugh when you said it's fun to do it purposely for a change!! What a lovely effect! The image is so sweet too, and like Faye, I'd never heard that broken glass brings luck... however I did break one this week, so maybe...? ;-]

This is a beautiful piece, Astrid! I love the way the glass broke! It reminds me of veins in a leaf. Very lovely!!! ...and thank you for explaining the meaning of the theme!! I now understand what a friend of mine who broke a piece of crystal stemware was saying when she told me that it was really good luck! XOXO

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
