Proxxon Power Tools

I love making Art out of junk.  This project was almost completely Free for me to make

While out for a walk I found the front to a dart board

cut it into two pieces
 I used the center for this project, but I see lots of great ideas for the other part

Love my Fiskars cutters

I wired a Light socket to the center

Got my Proxxon Drill Press out and a metal drill bit

Started to drill hole in all of my silverware

Super easy to do with My Proxxon Power Tools 

I added fishing line to each fork and spoon



Made my own rings from Wire


Add some chain to the top to hang from the ceiling 
added a bulb and it's done

Increasing my ability

I just love to learn NEW Techniques

This week I have been playing with all kinda new products and some old ones.  


This one is a painting done with just PanPastels and just a little soft Pastels
it's far from perfect, but I had a lot of fun learn this new skill


NOW this one.  I just love the way it turned out. I plan on show this technique off on my Tuesday night show in about a week or so.  This one is made with Acrylic Paints. Charcoal, and Soft Pastels.

Thanks for stopping by
Terri Sproul
