The Summer of colour - red

Hi guys as I was catching up on some of my blog friends this morning I came across Kristin from Twinkle Twinkle's Summer of colour challenge. I have seen my other blog friends take part in this challenge over the last few weeks or so and always wanted to participate but I've been struggling with keeping up with Paint Party Friday and Sunday sketches as it is. But when I saw this week's colour 'Red' I realised I had the perfect piece :0) So I decided I had to share. This week I've been working on a journal that I plan to fill with lots of my big eyed girls. The idea of this for me was to work on some new ideas, and also hopefully create some new pendant pieces, in the first few days I've come up with 3 new pieces and I'm so motivated. I've never kept a proper journal before as I usually get side tracked and fill it with half finished sketches and ideas. So with this one I hope to remain  more focused.
 I named this piece 'Determination' as I realised she had quite a determined look on her face when I'd fnished.
 I decided this cropped image would look great as a pendant.

I received some new supplies the other day of wooden tiles and epoxy drops which I've never tried before I really do love the way this turned out! :0) This is bigger than a scrabble tile and quite striking with the colours.

I'm off to check out everyone else's red pieces :0)

Very cool ! What kind of epoxy drops ? Complicated to use ? I have an application on a bamboo tile that I would love to have something that is at least water repellant after hardening. Do you have any tips to share with a fellow Sistah ? ;-)
Love your Red Lady !
