child of the forest

What to do with the tiny leaf canes made from polymer clay ?  I remembered I had a small face I made some time ago, I made it using a press mold by Sherry Goshon and polymer clay . I think the molds name is Spring ..Well after I played with it it looked boyish . I baked it and that was that  it just sat on the shelf .... until I went crazy making leaf canes , I do believe making polymer clay canes can be addictive ... OK OK  here is the result when I combined the two.  

A goodie Bag from Miss Tery Favo

Tery Favo is such a special Lady and I'm lucky to call her my friend . MissT as I like to call her  is most generous and is always surprising us with goodie bags, as she calls them. this is just one of many . Some times they have fabric and lace or some chocolates .This one had an interesting assortment of goodies. The vinyl bag is the best  I use it to carry little project to work with me . the blue Shot glass are perfect for water when I'm painting dolls ( or jello Shots HaHa)  the Glitters are just my colors .A Sheet of Tags , Some chip board shapes and a note book ! WOO HOO  Thank you MissT !

Tiny Paper Beads

Last weekend I spun up some Tiny paper Beads , using magazine pages , a glue stick and a tooth pick . Some gold craft paint and DecorArt Texture Glass. The Texture Glass was the Idea of my Friend Colleen Athens And it was a good one !  I really love the way the texture glass made them look .

She Has a name ! Meet Miss June Bug

Well Well ..she has a Name and it is... JUNE BUG ..with eyes like hers no other name would do ! As you can see she is still in the works, and has a pin or two holding her dress in place .  lots of embellishing  still to do. Her bloomers ,shoes and the lace on her dress are all tinted with Ranger alcohol inks, I did a little hand painting( golden dots) on her shoes and Bloomers with craft paint ... The Rhinestone buckle on her dress was a vintage find . She has hand dyed silk ribbons laced up her legs. She still needs some finishing but I thought you might like to see her progress thus far.
