Rustic Polymer Clay Pendant Video

Hi there! Want to learn how to make this Rustic polymer clay pendant? I've made a video sharing my process using acrylic paints, stax and texture stamps from my designer collection at CreateAlong. I hope you enjoy it. 

 

Fall Frenzy Lots of projects in the works

Hello friends, this past weekend I spent some time picking up a few fall leaves from our yard. Check out these beauties! 

I brought the image into photoshop and tweaked some of the colors, layered them and created these polymer clay transfer sheets. You could also use them as collage art in mixed media art.

I've been adding a couple of collage sheets to my online shop. Check them out and let me know what you think.

How are you today? The chill is definitely in the air here. Fall has arrived in Colorado Springs. Although we've had some cool nights, it's supposed to be in the 80s for the next couple of days.

Hello from my new studio

Hello friends! Tim and I moved into our new home.Yaaay... and as excited as we were to move, good grief I think we both forgot how much work it is! We still have lots to do and boxes to unpack but we are here and starting the process of making it a home. yay!

About my studio space. I have real walls!! Yippeee.

MINI BOOK PENDANTS (WIP)

Here's something new I'm working on...mini Fairy Tale book pendants complete with pages inside. These images are not complete but work in progress. 

The book pages are underneath the decorative cover. The back decorative cover is shown below. I'm hoping to finish it once I'm in my new studio. We're closing next Friday!! woo-hoo.

I used my new Enchantment collection cutters and stax stamps. For the backs I used the Enchantment texture mat.

Would you like to know what inspires my new collections?

I have really enjoyed creating new collections for CreateAlong. The tools are super easy to use with polymer clay, pmc or mixed media. The scale is intended to be used to create jewelry with but it would also work for other small scale uses, fairy doors, book pendants, covering tool handles, etc.

I thought it would be fun to share the story and inspiration behind my collections. So far I have 3, Secret Garden, Romance and my newest collection called Enchantment. If all goes well, Enchantment will be available in August 2018.

Hello friends, I hope you're enjoying life right now. It's been a super busy summer but I am enjoying it.

Happy Summer

Hello friends! I hope you're doing great and having a fantastic year so far.

I've been really enjoying my summer this year. We've had some family excitement with our son and daughter and law searching and finding a new home. They've moved and are getting settled into their new place, yay. :) I've kept baby Melody a couple of times. Whew! It's amazing how much energy those little ones take but they are so much fun!

Xacto Tip

When I'm ready to switch my dull or broken blade with a new one, I use a red marker to color the blade. I remove it and stick it in a protective holder. At a quick glance I can tell which ones are new and which are old. 

 

Charming embellishments

I love the details in these little vintage looking pieces. They're small. Perfect for adding to my hearts. IllI share how I incorporate them her. Wish me luck. ❤️
