Well, this didn't turn out as well as I had hoped, but lessons learned and next time will be much better!

*Fimo Soft
*Craft wire
*brush bristles (for eyelashes)
*Silicone Adhesive/ Caulk
*Snow Globes http://www.nationalartcraft.com/subcategory.asp?gid=6&cid=37&scid=54
*Acrylic paint

The figures are "sidekicks" for friends. Its sort of an inside joke thing, but hopefully you can appreciate them anyway! Here are the first sketch

Here's what happened when I tried to put the first one together:

There was much screaming and pulling of hair.

This figure had to be reglued and resoaked, so I'll finish it tomorrow...maybe.

Anyway, I did finish the cakelady. I only wish I had made the legs a but shorter, but alas.

She fits...barely!

Thigs to remember for next time:

*make the figures smaller! They are magnified by the water.
*colors are muted by the water. Exaggerate colors you want to stand out.

It doesn't matter if I don't have the background story - I think this is just great & quite possibly the best snow globe I've ever seen. Not the expected stuff one sees in these things...really cute & funny.

very cute!

"just keep crafting, just keep crafting"

Sorry I've been gone so long. Am trying to get back on the boards. Body's thrown me for a few loops these past months and am still learning to adjust. Thanks for your patience.

Nothing is so simple that it can't be screwed up
