Portrait 2 of 4 is complete. So far I have prepped only 4 of these, each in a different color – Pink/Lavender, Blue/Green, Yellow/Orange, and Red/Pink. You can see the first portrait here.
I styled the hair differently on this piece. I created more of a textured look with the beads. I really like the added dimension. Gives the hair more of an afro/natural hair effect – in my opinion 😉
And hey, here’s a sneek peek of portrait #3
So heres’s what happened– I bought some green clay to innocently make a little christmas tree… and now I have another hobby.
I don’t know why, but I just have this compulsion to try new crafty things. Maybe I watch too many youtube vids. I have a love/hate relationship with some of those channels. Anyway, as you cant see, I have even gone as far as to purchase a clay conditioner. I think the 60% off coupon took me over the edge. I swore I wasn’t going to take this new thing for clay too far but… I bought it.
But of course, I never stray too far from my love of buttons.
I’m trying to challenge myself to use shank buttons more often in my jewelry. I tend to avoid them like the plague for some reason. Lately, I have been embracing them and trying to work them into things.
I remember my last trip to Disney world and my mom and I both picked out huge plushies for ourselves. I got a Tigger & she got Pooh.
