1  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.

3  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

I received the coolest mixed media art piece from artsycandice! She decided to go with one of my favorite Neil Gaiman quotes.

I love mixed media art and this will look perfect in my blue themed living room.

Thank you so much!!!
