WIP – Mixed Medium Project

I’m finally working on my mixed medium project.

I’ve figured out something about my creative process, I like to get the supplies for projects together and then let them set a while before I make them. I have to imagine the project in my mind and the steps I’ll take to create it. Only then am I ready to start the project. This is the part of my creative process that slows me down.
However,
Some projects I start/finish right away. I just rarely know which ones that will be.
Anyway, I hope to have this mixed medium finished soon. I’m on a role with it right now.

Wishing you all a successful Wednesday!

Flower Pen – Mixed Medium

I was in search of a project to do and went looking through my idea files. I came across this flower pen picture my Bff had sent me some years ago.
The flower pen is made of silk flower/leaves, floral tape, ink pen, clay pot, some filler and what appears to be a grassy filler.flwrpen08It seemed an easy craft, but I didn’t have any floral tape nor a small clay pot. I thought about it for a second and realized that I could use polymer clay to wrap the pen in and sculpt a clay pot and stone fillers.

It was fun to make. My clay pot isn’t perfect and neither is the clay wrapped pen, but I think it turned out okay for my first ever flower pen.flwrpnI was going to put some green raffia over the top of my sculpted stones for fake grass, but I liked the look of the stones and decided not to cover them up.

What do you think?
Should I cover the stones or leave them bare?

Happy Crafting!

Let it snow, mixed medium picture

10-14-2016-snowmanI’ve been in the mood to try my hand at painting a picture. Painting pictures isn’t something I ever spent much time on. I planned to make an all-painted 8×10 picture of looking out of a window and seeing a snowman. Simple, right?…
By-the-time I got the snowman and tree painted, my creative instincts took over and got out of hand. This picture became a mixed medium piece of art; canvas, acrylic paints, gold trim, wood and polymer clay charms.

My husband thinks my picture is pretty and cheerful. I’m so happy that it turned out so well.

Happy crafting!

Wishing you a creative week.
