Popping in after a long break and a WIP..

Well, hello my long lost friends..
 I've had a long break since my last post. I had a knee replacement and once healed, started a new full time job. I've been trying to find a balance between Job, family and Art. It's been a juggling act, and seriously I'm failing on the art end of things. So, I thought I would join a challenge from the FB group Every Witch Way Lane. The idea is to incorporate a  " Witches Hat, Broomstick and Black Cat".

I thought I would share my progress along the way....

                                                           
                                                         My rough sketch...
                            This piece will be for my home. I sell all of my art, but I have really wanted a unique Halloween candy stand for a long time and I haven't found what I'm looking for , so I'm gonna make it :)



I was really wanting wooden bowls, but couldn't find the right size at the thrift store.. I did however find these purple bowls in just the right sizes. Adhering paper clay to plastic is not ideal if you want it to stick forever.. It needs a little help.


1. Using paper towels, I cut a circle for each bowl. then set them aside.


2. I covered the bowls with a thin coat of E-6000...


3. Then applied the paper towel circle over the E-6000 covered bowl..smoothing it out... allowed to dry overnight to fully cure.


4. I gathered a few supplies; Creative Paperclay® a cookie cutter ( fall leaf ) texture mat, sculpting tools and paint brush.


5. I rolled the clay out on a powdered surface to about 1/4" thick. I lied it over the dampened bowl and cut the excess clay away. Then applied my design...



Please stay tuned for The progress of my Witch Treat Stand... until then have a wonderful day..

A Mother's Day Project...

Hello friends!
 Just got back from a very long vacation.
We were on a family cruise to the Panama Canal..17 days long.. I can honestly say.. I loved the whole trip, but I got very,very homesick.
 I think maybe I'm more of a short vacation type of gal.

What about you?


My favorite place was Cabo San Lucas...


And my favorite person to spend time with on the vacation, was my husband...
Alan and I spend a lot of time together.
We are both creatives and as much as we loved our vacation we were excited to get back home to the studio creating...


After returning home, I quickly jumped back into creating.
Mother's day projects was racing about my mind.

"Heart In Hand" always reminds me of  MOM's...
