My previous posts were teasing, sharing a few lines as I go. Here is a further update! Now you can see where I am going. Since Ray Lewis, a Baltimore Raven, my favorite Football Team, is an Icon of Baltimore, I decided to include another. Maryland is known for their 'Steamed Blue Crabs'. It is our tradition to call a few close friends, steam up some blue crab, pop a beer or two and sit together socializing, while enjoying our 'pick'.
The claw itself, was not affording a total picture. Therefore, I decided to add a focal accent, to be added later. This too is a picture of a Steamed Crab. *giggle* I told my family it was very necessary for me to go out and eat some very large steamed crabs, so I could take a photo for my cell phone bag. They weren't hard to convince! In the picture above, you see what I created.
Below is the process, in a nut shell.
Before we dug in, I asked to allow me the time of taking a few photographs. Here is the one I decide to use. I photo managed it and reduced the size so it fit perfectly behind a 40mm x 25mm glass cabochon. Using what you see in the picture above, I backed it with blue card stock, cut the shape to fit and followed the directions on the Glaze.
I share my thoughts of where this new accent will rest, later on. Looking at it now, I sure wish I would have included a mallet in the same picture. Heck, maybe I should suggest more crabs! lol
