DREAMER



Yes, I finally took the big plunge into resin, and I am enjoying it! The look on this girls face almost instantly transports me to another time. The image reminded me of when I was a little girl, and my mom would sing a lot when we were in the house, and she often sang the song Beautiful Dreamer. When I was 10 years old or so, my parents bought me a small inexpensive organ, and that song was in the songbook, although I don't remember who wrote it.
It will always be with me, and a memory of a simpler time, a wonderful time. Such small activities at the time mean the world to me now.....so I try to keep them alive. Do any of you carry a favorite song from your childhood? I'd love to hear about it! Thank you for visiting, you all mean the world to me.

Hi Sharon, I wanted to email you , but I can't find it . I love this, and I really like the look of resin. Did you use the 2 part resin on this, and if you did, how was it to use?

Beautiful! My dad would love to sing, "Once in Love with Amy." I also still love the instrumental, "Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White" and own some Sinatra CD's. You're right, song is a powerful reminder of days gone by. Keep up with resin though, it looks great with your work.

What a beautiful work Sharito, the pendant you made is just awesome, all the details you put in, should be a part of the little girl's story.
Love the colour combo too.
Renate is right, you ROCK !

Oh, Sharon, this is such a natural step for you with all of the mixed media, collage work you have been doing. I love seeing how both of your passions have merged into one beautiful piece of jewelry. I haven't thought of that song Beautiful Dreamer in many many years. I loved it as well as a child and I can hear it in my mind. Thanks so much for gifting me with a lovely memory.

Thank you so much everyone...you have all touched my heart today!

Resin was definitely the next step for you and isn't it so much fun! I love how you added the element to the design. The girl speaks to you with her eyes...
Music was always playing in our home, mostly symphonies along with Nat King Cole and Eddie Arnold. Whenever I hear a familiar song it brings me back and long for that simpler life as a child.

Lovely piece Sharon. The bronze and green work together so well with the image.

Lovely necklace. For Christmas one year a very long time ago when I was a little girl I got a musical locket bracelet and it played The Blue Danube. To this day I love that music, however my locket sounds like it has been submerged under water. :o(
Your resin work is excellent. Happy creating...

Hopemore Studio said...

Sharon, Your assemblage is beautiful. I took the plunge into resin this week too and was blown so thrilled with the results. Blogs like yours are the perfect inspiration...thank you.

What an incredible first plunge little sis!!! As always your creations have a wonderful earthy ethereal feel about them. I think maybe what "middle earth' must have been like so many life times ago before humans walked the upper earth. :)

Oh goodness I have some wonderful memories of songs. My dad use to sing little ditties all day as he went about his routines, Oh Sweet Mystery of Life, Stormy Weather, Tootsie...

I adore your necklace & I am soooo wanting to learn & try a few things in resin. I remember when I was a little girl my Mom would sing a silly song to me that went something like this...mares eat oats & does eat oats & little lambs eat ivy...a jid will eat ivy too wouldn't you? I have a little shop now which I've had for about 5 years & it named, 'Lambs & Ivy'. {my Mom passeed away when i was 16, so this is very special to me} thanks for asking & have a fun-filled TGIF!
Smiles,
Susie

so very lovely in every detail, she does have a sweet innocence about her and she looks so thoughtful too

I will go to sleep with "Beautiful Dreamer" wafting in my dreams ... thank you for that!

as a young girl I Loved the Alice in Wonderland song "You can Learn Alot of Things from the Flowers" oh my that's a long title ;) maybe it's called "all in the golden afternoon"?
