Playin around Sunday

PAPER CLAY IS FUN TO PLAY WITH!!






LOVIN THIS BIRD I MADE~











A big cheery sunday hello!!!









Well I FINALLY played around with some paperclay today!! now I bought this pkg 2 years ago with the hopes of making something, put it in a drawer in my studio!! (i know big mistake when things are hidden away and out of sight we tend to forget about them) so while siftin thru some things I came across it and thought hmmmmmmmm wonder if it is still good. WELL it is really fun to use!! This is everything I cut out for the moment to see how they end up after painting. This stuff is just drying but I love the look. THE BIRD turned out just too cute cant wait to paint him up!!!! Maybe blue with a bit of red? It was fun to sit and play with this stuff, I also stamped a few words on the long pieces that I am goin to paint up and seal and hopefully make them into neckalces, the bracket is goin ontop of an altered journal book i am working on for a friend maybe the flowers too. The word love turned out so cool they are stamped on then I went over the letters with an embossing tool to make them a bit deeper and stand out more.





THEN I finished up a banner for the flower shop!! OK I AM NOT usually using such bright bold colors you know i am a true prim grubby kind of gal but we wanted something for in a big window at the shop that would STAND out!! well i think my mom and i picked out the perfect colors for this flower banner!~ I think it will look great as the shop outside is light grey too. I made all the accordian flowers on the bottoms and added some ribbons, a bit of distressing using Tim Holtz black distressing ink, and some great lime green crepe paper I found in a card/party store!! I ran it under my sewing machine to make it gather then cut the edges with some decorative scissors, I THINK IT SCREAMS BRIGHT AND BOLD!! LOL
Ok so I am off to finish up a couple of swap gifts for a dear friend Marla!! and hopefully will get all my paper clay things painted up.
HAVE A BLESSED SATURDAY YALL!!

The little bird you sculpted from the clay is just amazing. You really have a talent.

Yes, that F L O W E R banner just screams Bright and Cheerful and catches the eye perfectly! I love the colors, that green is just like the leaves when they first come out!!!
