Hello and happy Wednesday!
As promised, I am back today with some photos of what I've been obsessively working on lately. I can be very intense at times when I get going on something, and I have been so focused and intense working on these things.
I had an idea for these a couple of months ago, but I refused to get the clay out and try it. I love doing my clay work, but it's a lot of work to get the clay out of the freezer, condition it and mix colors. Then it's not something I can just run into my room and work on for tiny bits at a time, which is what I usually only get. But this idea just kept gnawing at me and gnawing at me until I finally threw my hands up in the air and ran to the basement and got the clay out of the freezer. If you haven't ever worked with polymer clay, I keep it in the freezer so that it stays soft and workable. Over time if it's just left sitting it will get hard and crumbly. Anyway, I got it out and spent one whole Saturday conditioning it and mixing my colors. Then I got to work on my idea :)
I must say I have been so thrilled with these. I have actually been designing them in Illustrator on the computer before actually creating them in the clay. In the past, I have always made cute little figures, like animals, snowmen, Santa's and Angels, so these are quite different from my norm. I actually got the idea from creating all of my designs with the Perler beads. And my Mom and hubby teased me so about playing with those things. heheh!
So anyway, here are a few of my latest designs. I have worked on things, changed things around, and redid things, until I finally figured out a way to do this that works. I hope you enjoy seeing them!
My husband is a huge fan of my claywork. Out of all of the crafty things I do, he loves my clay the best. He always loves it when I get back into creating things with it. He thinks I should put some of these in my Etsy store. I'm thinking about it...
Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you've enjoyed seeing my latest creative endeavor. I'll be back soon with some cards! I just got a nice fat little package of new Lawn Fawn goodies, that I'm dying to play with!
