More (hopefully creative) Messiness


I keep thinking this should be titled something like 'Where's Waldo?' or
in my picture 'Where's the needle felted bunny?' waiting for his
wooden block to be painted.
I chickened out showing my spare guest/supply storage room for now. And since not a whole lot is happening in my life (which is kind of a nice thing) I thought I would instead show the mess involved in what I am working on this week. I have still been playing with clay and of course had to make birds. I really enjoy painting them - painting on layers and wiping off parts of layers until I like the results. And then experimenting with crackle paint or glitter paint and adding a few crystals and rhinestones to finish the fun. Anyway back to my mess... this is the far end of the dining room table so we are still able to eat at the other end. My sweet family has been so understanding about my little spots of messiness.

Pink glitter and rhinestones:)
In my Etsy shop.

Clay bird and wool nest.
It is also in my shop.

A little trinket bowl - a few new skills. I never had made a clay rose before.
I love the little pearl in its center and some more of that pink glitter on its petals.
I haven't listed it yet.
