LIBERTY GODESS

This is a magnet I made for Michelle…it depicts her Mom at our 2009 annual Liberty Splash pool party. It is made from polymer clay with eyelets and a glass pebble over the picture of Marcia.

Also, at this time, I would like to thank my partner for the great pictures she has taken for me and for all her help with my blog…you rock Jan!!!

HOME SWEET HOME…

Cloth Paper Scissors, a collage, mixed media artist magazine, had a reader challenge…build a home for their little neighborhood.  The mini abode could be made from fabric, paper, metal, found objects, anything but it could not exceed 1/2 lb.  There was a pattern to use and the house was to be that size.  Well, I love a challenge.  I made my house called “Liberty House” fashioned after our home. I used basswood for the frame, then covered it with Grungeboard.  I cut out the windows, glued acetate that I tinted with alcohol ink onto the back, made shutters from the window cut outs, then used Glossy Accents to fill the window openings.  The chimney was made from basswood that I textured with a hot knife. And  to finish it off, there is Lady Liberty  in front  just like at my home!  Yesterday I learned that Liberty House was a finalist…so off it goes to Cloth Paper Scissors to be possibly featured in an up coming issue.

BUTTERFLIES ARE FREE…

Butterflies are a symbol of change and transformation.  This little steampunk butterfly was made for my friend Raine…she really got me started in polymer clay and taught me a lot about using this medium.  Phoenix, the name I have given this butterfly, is made from polymer clay.  A fuse and various watch gears are embedded in the clay. The back has two little wells with glass beads covered with resin.  “If I had wings no one would ask me should I fly…”

AMELIA “AIR-HEART”

This little steampunk bird is a free wheeling spirit.  She flew into my mind and captured my imagination.  Amelia is made of polymer clay and embellished with watch parts and gears.  Come fly with me…
