Messing about with Material

SO....... today, well friday that is, I played around with shaveing foam and material. This is some of the results.
I brushed off the foam from most of them, but thought I liked the look with the foam, so I left it on a few of them and left them to dry.
They dried very hard, and I think they look better (more texture).
Next time I'll do it on a colored background.
Can't wait to see how my rusting is comeing along. More on that later.

Fairy Shoes

Well here they are, my all handsewen fairy shoes.I pictured them with the leaf to show thier size, but I bent the leaf... so it looks smaller than the shoes. They are about 4 1/2 inches long.
Anyway____ first I dotted some red felt with gold paint, then I hand sewed diagonally with gold metalic thread. "Nasty job"- I cut black felt and sewed the soles and uppers together, then the part that took the longest, was sewing the uppers to the soles and the shoe opening.
Next time I am glueing.
OK ,OK, I'm kidding.
where was I? Oh yeah, I then found these really tiny bells and attached them to the toes and added the ribbon and beads to top. ALLLLLLL done WHEW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, Well, Well. Here I am again, and this is my attempt at working with clay. Not at all what it was originally going to look like. This was the prettiest hues of blues, pinks, and sort of irridesent.
Let me tell you ...."Don't follow the baking instructions". I did this at the right temp.,- time..... well I didn't get to the right time because they burned to a crisp,( Well almost), but bad enough that I had to paint it all as you can see quite different colors.
Oh the pain of it all. LOL
I did several pieces, and all were salvagable, though not to my liking.
Picky, picky, picky.
Back to the drawing board I guess.
See you soon

Baby Shower

Well hello people.

I have been very remiss in keeping this blog up to date, but you know how it is.
Got really busy, then in a slump. And now on to a new challenge with my buddies.

These are a few of the Baby Shower invitations that I have been doing for my sister.
Her Son, My nefew (Of course), and his lovely lady are due to have thier first baby in a few mos. and I offered to do the shower invitations for her. Good thing because Debbie (my Sister and first time GRANDMOTHER to be) is on cloud nine and really acting like a space cadet. For those of you who have been there you know what I mean.

Well anyway I found this cute bag for baby gifts, copied it and put it on the back of the envelopes, which I posted earlier. I thought it was really cute, and in case you can't read it in last post: it says

With a new baby in the house,
there'll be crying, bottle drinking, temper tantrums....
(Just don't do it in front of the baby!).

Too cute eh?????

Well there are 30 of these things to do, and they don't want to know what she is haveing, so I did them in blue, pink, and yellow. Trying to find a nice soft green allso. After all green is the new pink.( LOL) Inside joke.
I have been doing a few other thing also, and as soon as they are done I will post.
Hope that is soon. too much on my pallett at one time.
Oh well keeps me on my toes I guess.
