omgoodness--tongue depressors?! ha ha ha

Yes! Tongue depressors. Or big orange 'paddle pop sticks' as we often call them here in Australia. Haha.

There's also patty pans, plastic plates, gold cardboard, sheets and pilowcases, seaweed sheets, petals and leaves, a pair of white cotton gloves, I just kept running around the house grabbing all sorts of things while my baby slept!

You have such a good imagination for using everyday items!  I enjoyed seeing these and am amazed at the various things you use!

I love your starry night and also the lion...

If you like those two, you might also enjoy these two requests...

A 'green dragon of some kind'

These are awesome. I'm reminded of the show "Art Attack". I love them all, but the lion is my favourite.

You know, it was because I was introducing my eldest son to old episodes of art attack on YouTube that this all started! And now it's gotten completely out of hand!

Thanks guys.
I was actually a bit nervous about posting for some reason so it's lovely to get positive feedback from other crafters!  Phew! Smiley

It's probably been about 3 years or more since I've posted on Craftster. I've had 2 baby boys and not much time to do any decent crafting  Sad

However,  I have started a new hobby making temporary, recyclable artworks within a 30 minute time limit (due to my newest baby never sleeping for more than 30 mins at a time!) out of ordinary household items and miscellaneous bric-a-brac. I don't use any glue so I can re use the materials. These rules I set for myself can make it quite tricky sometimes.

I've actually been taking requests from people on Facebook and Instagram, it's hard for me to keep up, but I get around to all of them eventually. I make the art, take a photo of it and post it so they can see what I made for them, it's a fun hobby. Some are quite silly! Here are some examples of what I've been playing with....

A request for 'a millipede' - made from a cable tidier and hair slides


A request for  'something on the theme of Steven Spielberg' - made from rice and seaweed sheet and some capsicum (he produced Memoirs of a Geisha)


A request for 'something by Vincent Van Gogh' so I did a version of Starry Night - made from beads, matchsticks, rubber bands, scarves, buttons and paperclips


A Bee - a request from a 3 year old girl. Made from a seed pod, rubber bands, baking paper for wings, a banksia brush, teddy bear eyes, straws and some apple


My 2.5 year old boy requested a picture of a lion eating his baby brother, so of course I had to do it- it's just made from sheets, blankets and pillows with a couple of plastic plates for eyes.


An owl - seeds, ice cream cones, lasagne sheets, nuts and dates.


This list is growing!! I have done many more. Everything can be packed away and re used (or eaten!) It's so much fun you ought to give it a try, and if you do, please share it with me. OR if you want to request something you can go to my Facebook page or Instagram and request away. It doesn't cost anything, just a bit of silly fun and a way for this creative mama to keep herself sane Smiley

My friend shows EVERYONE the book and it gets a lot of good comments but a lot of people totally freak out when they touch it. It's guess it's just too real for some people. I'm so surprised at how precious people can be! They're just fake vaginas, They're not going hurt you. One gay guy was touching the vulva book at a party and he said 'if only they were actually that soft' and at that moment just about every chick in the place stopped talking and piped in unison 'they ARE that soft!'. So funny.

 Thanks guys, it's nice to know people like it, my friend sure did. To make the vaginas I did sculpts out of plasticine, then I molded them with plaster, then I cast them in elastomeric gel that I tinted skin colour. The book pages are 10mm thick black foamcore sheets with a vagina sized hole cut in them and a backing of black cardboard. The cover is made of 3mm ply and the spine is soft pink leather.

My friend was constantly going on and on and on about how she thought she had a strange looking vagina. One day we were listening a radio program and heard someone talking about a book with pictures in it of 50 different vaginas. An informative book for women to peruse, to help them stop freaking out, as my friend does, about the appearance of their ladies bits. She suggested to me that she'd like to own this book, and was very excited to hear that it existed. So I said I'd buy it for her birthday. Instead, i went one better and made her a very special vagina book of her very own! And here it is!





There are 5 different vaginas that I individually sculpted

And they are made from a gel substance, so they are stretchy and soft and you can play with them! Just like a real vagina!
