You know how you read "Try something new, you can do it"?
Okay, so I did!
I had an idea, the very first time I had seen Wendy Vecchi's Embossing Crackle Paste!
My idea was to create a bunny and crackle him, you know like the vintage one's!
So......I had to make a bunny? I don't know how to make a bunny...........
I went and bought some Creative Paperclay. The reason I choose this is, it does not need to go in the oven to dry, it air dries!
So I went looking at various sites about molding stuff and I found out you can make a wire form or a tin foil form or even use Styrofoam balls. I used the tin foil, because that is what I had on hand. So I started to shape it into what I thought it should look like. Then I covered it with the clay.
Not even near perfect, but I liked him.
He slightly leans to the side and his one ear is a bit smaller.
But I fell in love with my quirky little guy.
Now I tried and tried to win the FAMOUS Wendy Vecchi's Embossing Pastes, but it did not happen!
But some other very lucky ladies did!
So I purchased it from The Frilly Funkie Boutique.
(I am not being paid! I just liked her customer service and she even sent me a extra goodies! and I loved it)
Above is my quirky little guy!
He sat like this for a few days, because I just could not make up my mind!
Yep, still leaning and his ear is still smaller, but that is what makes him unique!
I even posted this and still could not decide.
Then last night I decided!
I am so glad I did!
I LOVE HIM!!!
He is sooooo cute Cracked!
Then I had to finish him this morning. I lost my sun from my morning picture session.
But here is my final project all done!
I cut a paper mache egg in half and covered it with Tim Holtz paper.
I tore the paper and applied it with Matte Medium, let it dry and Distress inked the egg.
I then added the Tim Holtz's Pulley's as wheels. Added some Distress Glitter Rock Candy.
Added some lace around the egg. Finished it with some eggs and flowers, straw excelsior.
I now have a bunny mobile!
So everything I did here, was all new to me! I had never used Paperclay, never used Wendy's Pastes and I never have made a bunny mobile! I think it all came together quite well and I see more animals coming out of paperclay and Wendy's embossing pastes!
So.......Go try something NEW, you might like it!
