YOU’RE A MEAN ONE…

 

2017 Grinch OrnamentHello Mr Grinch…you are a mean one no doubt.  This ornament was made using Fimo® and Souffle™ polymer clay.  I used my Makin’s Professional® Ultimate Clay Machine® and their Square Texture Roller.  I also used some cool mica powder from CreateAlong.com on the snowflake.   Who?

FROSTY…

 

 

2017 SnowmanFor my December Makin’s Clay® project, I decided to recycle a very small old Christmas bulb that I found in my favorite junk store.  These were the kind of bulbs that were on my childhood Christmas tree. If you go to Makinsclayblog.blogstop.com you can get the instructions to make one for yourself.

FOR ERIN…

 

 

2017 A Mother is Always With YouI recently found an old heart shaped perfume bottle at an antique store and immediately knew what I wanted to make with it.  I covered the bottle with Sculpey Souffle™ polymer clay and made an ink jet transfer of my friend’s Mom.  Erin, I hope this little memento  fills you with memories of your loving Mom.

WINTER WONDERLAND…

 

 

 

2017 CreateAlongThis winter ornament was made by using an art box from CreateAlong.com   This month the CreateAlongBox included a 2-way silkscreen, a Texture Stax with 6 different crystal designs, a snowflakes silicone mold, a chipboard ornament to cover with clay, some DewDrop Brillance Heat-set ink and Sparkly icy mica powdered pigments. I added a glass ornament in the middle and filled it with vintage glass glitter and some mica flakes.  I finished the edges with vintage glass glitter. And of course I had to include some ball chain for a slight steampunk look.

JUST STEAMPUNK VOLUME 10…

 

 

 

JS Vol 10 2017Volume 10 of Just Steampunk magazine  featured three of my art pieces, all made with Makin’s Clay®.  The magazine is now available at Barnes & Noble.  If you like steampunk you will love this magazine. Thank you Scott Publications!

FOR DAVID AND BETSY…

 

 

 

2017 Katie OrnamentMy nephew David and his wife Betsy lost their beautiful daughter Katie to Angiosarcoma this past July.  This ornament, in her memory, was made from Sculpey Souffle™ polymer clay.  Katie fought the good fight but cancer won in the end.  Rest in peace Katie, I know you are sorely missed.

FOR KRISTY AND COLLEEN…

 

 

 

Abstract Bokeh Background Christmas Snow LightsThe picture of the two adorable babies on this ornament is another ink jet transfer, in other words it is entirely made of clay.  Sculpey® Souffle polymer clay was used and I also used my Makin’s Professional® Ultimate Clay Machine® and Makin’s® Texture Sheets in the process. Merry Christmas to two incredible women, I hope you enjoy my little piece of art for you. I made two ornaments, the picture shows the front and the back.
