2  ORGANIZED CRAFT SWAPS / New Swap Theme Ideas / Re: 2015 Shop the Swap discussion thread on: August 13, 2015 11:47:58 AM
I am excited about this swap starting up again! I have decided to declutter my life and as a result I am going to attempt to pare down my crafting supplies. I just have too much stuff that it actually give me a little bit of anxiety when I walk in my office/craft room. I need to focus on the crafts I really enjoy doing and accept that I can't do everything.

So, I will be listing a bunch of paper crafting supplies, polymer clay supplies, blank canvases, buttons, jewelry making supplies etc. I really want them to go to a good home :-)

6  POTTERY, CERAMICS, POLYMER CLAY / Polymer Clay: Discussion and Questions / Re: Mystery item - how would you use it? on: July 17, 2015 09:00:59 AM
It looks like some kind of clay cutter to me. The design is pretty unique though.

8  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Kindness Mixed Media Hoopla on: July 14, 2015 09:53:48 AM
I wasn't exactly sure where to put this hoopla I created for artsycandice in the Quotes Quotes Quotes swap, but I thought this was a good fit  Grin

I love creating mixed media art, but I wanted to do something that was a little different for me- to push myself to try new techniques. So I decided to start with playing with some of my fiber stash and seeing where things went from there. First I created a sheet of felt by wet felting merino, mohair, Cotswold locks, bamboo and silk- some of which I had hand dyed previously. While that was drying, i decided to play around with some BFL yarn that I had handspun and created a small woven piece. At this point I had thought that I would embroider the quote onto the hoopla when it was done, but when I tried that, the stitches kind of sank into the fiber background. So I pulled out my polymer clay supplies and rubber stamps and went to town.

After attaching the poly clay quotes and the woven piece, the hoopla still looked a little plain so I decided to add some french knots and seed stitches with embroidery floss, ribbon and handspun yarn. I also needle felted some more Cotswold locks onto the piece.

I am pretty happy with how this turned out- especially since I was winging it the whole time  Grin
