With Thanksgiving quickly approaching...I can hear the clock a ticking. I had a few gal pals over this past weekend for some crafting....I think we talked and laughed more than we created. I had started these two crafts over the weekend (my husband was gone Friday and Saturday hunting)and finally got them finished. This was my first time using clay...I really enjoyed it and can see me using it again in the future. The face is formed by yours truly. I formed the cheeks and made a carrot nose and painted the eyes. I painted her white first and added glitter into the paint. I wanted her to look OLD. So I antiqued the head and distressed it to make it look worn. This is similiar to my Halloween tussy mussy. I added some millinery flowers and a hand-painted glass birdy...that perches on her hat. I added wings & a lopsided cone hat using a vintage like sheet music paper. She ended up being quite large...over 18" in length. I am pretty happy with her "snow angel" whimsy!
The other little project is a banner....you know I love me a banner! I used chipboard with images of snowflakes and vintage looking santa images. I used good old Martha glitter...I Love her glitter.. to cover the snowflakes. I plan on making more of these....so be forewarned. If anyone is interested in buying one of these please let me know! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org (Banner is 20.00 + shipping and the snow angel is 30.00 plus shipping) I really want to keep these...but if there is an interest...I can make more (: Thanks for taking a peek! I hope everybody is doing well and getting ready for turkey day! Cherry
