Can it be Fall ??? PLEASE

I am so over this heat and humidity! We have had over 30 something days of temperatures in the 90's with heat index's well into the 100's.  It's so hot that even going in the pool isn't refreshing, it's more like going into a hot tub. My solution is to stay inside in the A/C and dream about Fall and Winter, and create for those seasons.  Please stop by my sales page for my latest listing!

Creative Paper Clay my experience

Creative Paper Clay
Working with clay has always been something that I wanted to  try, I was really hesitant because it was out of my comfort zone. I had never worked with any clay, my experience working with that medium (other than play-dough as a child) was non existent.  I spent several months researching clay, and how to work with it, I had a package of Creative paper clay that I had bought probably 3 years ago, still sitting on my shelf waiting for me. I also contacted a few clay artists, to see if they had any tips to give me. I can't believe how helpful and supportive LeAnn Kress and Sissy Garvel were! They were a God send!  After finally deciding to pull out the clay and give it a shot, (I figured what's the worst thing that could happen? If it's awful I have a trash can that it can go in!) I fell in love with the feel of clay in my hands! The Creative Paper Clay is wonderful to work with! It smooths so nicely, and if you use a wet paint brush, there is very little sanding needed if any at all. I posted other projects that I did using both creative paper clay and my own paper clay that I made. For superior detailing and smooth surfaces I would definitely use the creative paper clay! This is the first project that I did, it took me longer to finish than the rest because of all the detailing, sewing etc. In closing I just want to say if you want to try clay, I would definitely use Creative paper clay. Jump in and give it a try! #Creativepaperclay

Expanding my horizan

For some time now I have wanted to try my hand in clay. After spending months watching videos, and asking some experts for tips, and viewing clay makers blogs, I have finally taken the step and started working on some clay projects. I even made my own paper clay, from a tutorial that I found on line! I am only in the beginning stages of these projects but wanted to share with you all what I have been up to.
