Hey there! So my sister is planning a baby shower for one of her friends, and she made her a diaper cake, you know, a three tiered cake shaped thing made out of rolled up diapers. I admit I had some momentary confusion when she called me and asked me to make her a cake topper, when she said she made a diaper cake I pictured a diaper shaped cake, which is an odd choice for a baby shower, why not make a baby foot shaped cake with the color of the gender?
Anywho, once she explained what exactly a diaper cake was I was on board! The theme of the party was Owl, with two colors of purple and two teal’s, so I was to make an owl about 3″ in diameter out of these colors. Thus the project began!
While at Michaels I swung by there as is section. There I found a 16 pack of small candle holders, two were missing, which is why it was only $2.25! Fourteen glass candle holders for less than 3 bucks, count me in! I’ve been wanting to do more then just jewelry, especially with the holidays (and ARTitude) coming up, I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to shake things up.
So I’ve been shaking things up this week and decided to try something new. I got a package of hair clips from Michaels. Using some molds from Martha Stewart and Sculpey and some chalk pastels and mica powders I came up with the following.
Just wanted to pop in quick and show what I worked on this past weekend. I’ve been seeing a lot of resin work with polymer clay and wanted to give it a try. I also made a bunch of tie dye pieces.
Guys! Great news! I got accepted into ARTitude! It’s this awesome pop up shop that runs from November 19th to December 31 in downtown Jackson. It features a variety of artists. Since I’m still getting started I didn’t want to do the whole time, so I just applied for two days, and got in!
I’ll have a table set up instead of the vendor booths which I think is just the right size for me. I’m super excited and have been making jewelry like crazy. I’m also planning on making some non jewelry items, like candle holders and coasters. I’ll post a couple of pictures tomorrow of what I worked on this weekend.
More good news, my package was finally delivered, after 13 days. No idea where it went for a week or why it sat in Baltimore for 3 days without being sent off the rest of the way. But at least it got delivered without being damaged. But I think it’s safe to say that next time I’ll be using a different service.
Hello! So over Labor Day weekend I was playing around with creating a pendant covered with flowers and ended up with this:
While I love how it turned out I made a couple mistakes that I wasn’t all that thrilled with. So I took another crack at it and took pictures of the process. So read on for a picture tutorial on how to make a flower pendant.
