Brilliant Bunny Greg

This brilliant bunny rabbit is Greg. His human Mom has taught him to walk on a leash. She and her Grandma sometimes takes Greg to the park for a walk.
Greg’s human Mom has always amazed me with being wonderful with all animals. I suspect she’ll be a veterinarian someday.

When I heard about Greg walking on a leash, I wanted to post a photo of him on my blog. I was so happy that they shared these charming photos with me to share with you all.
I send happy heart-filled thanks to Greg’s Human Mom and her Grandma.

Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday!

Friday in Green

P1010082bThis is a little bunny that hangs out near the garden. It’s growing quite fast. I figure the pin wheels and pie pans are the only things keeping it out of the garden. Thank goodness there’s lots of nice clover and grass in the yard for it to feed on.

P1000985The honeysuckle vines are blooming. The air is very sweet & aromatic right now.

P1010225I saw this pretty little wild strawberry growing in a day-lily. I’ve never eaten a wild strawberry.  I like seeing them and think they’re charming.
P1000574This funny looking orange fuzzy ball growing in a cedar tree is called ‘cedar-apple rust’. It’s a strange part of a disease that requires two hosts, a cedar or juniper tree and an apple tree, for the disease to complete it’s cycle and cause damage. It releases spores that infect apple trees and ruin the crop. Fortunately, we don’t have any apple trees to worry about.

P1010541It’s the sad end of the season for the beautiful peony blooms. They’re on their way to the long winters rest.

P1010568My first squash bloom bud and it’s a female. Hopefully, It won’t be long until we’ll get to try these new variety of squash.

Flashback Friday – Bunny Sculpt Tutorial

bun4Today I’m going to start having  ‘Flashback Fridays’ each week where I’ll re-post a craft or something from my old blog ‘Enjoyingcreating‘. I have several crafts and things from it that I think would be fun to share again here on my new blog. Plus, this gives me another opportunity to keep my blog active.

I hope you all will enjoy seeing my crafts and things from years past on my ‘Flashback Fridays’ postings.

To start my ‘Flashback Fridays’,  since we’re in the early throws of Spring and Easter is coming up soon, I decided to post my ‘Bunny Sculpt tutorial’.

This little bunny is about 2 1/4 inches long when it’s finished. The photos make it look bigger. It’s cuter in real life.

Let me know if you or your children make a bunny by this tutorial. And be sure to take some pictures too. I’d love to see your creative little bunnies.

I originally made this tutorial for polymer clay, but you can use homemade clay or air-dry clay.

~*~
If you use air-dry or homemade clay, please remember to ignore the baking instructions.

Press the clay in place as follows:

1 tiny light pink ball of clay
2 tiny dark pink balls of clay

Press the clay in place as follows:
2 dark pink clay balls in eye positions
1 light pink ball in nose position
Take a toothpick and draw a smile
and dent the eyes to make pupils

~*~

If you’re using air dry clay, you’re finished.
Set your Bunny sculpt somewhere safe and let it dry.

~*~

If you’re using bakeable clay then go to the next steps.

.
.
Before baking,
Pierce the body underneath to allow
clay to bake thoroughly so it won’t
crack or poof or something.

Bake the polymer clay bunny at the manufacturers recommended temperature and for the recommended length of time.
Allow bunny to cool before touching.
.
.
Tah – dah, you’re done and have a wee little bunny figurine.

I hope you all enjoyed my Flashback Friday.
It was fun sharing my bunny sculpt with you.
It’s always been one of my favorite sculpts
because it’s simple and makes me smile.

Here’s wishing you all a hoppy good weekend!
