Tutorial --- A Cookie Inspired Creative Paperclay® Tree / New Art!

Good Morning to You All!

I hope this post finds you well and happy!  Christmas is just around the corner and I am running around trying to get last minute things done.  If you are still looking for that fun project to do with the kiddies, pop on over the the Creative Paperclay® blogsite and look at my next tutorial.  It was inspired by using star cookie cutters in various sizes stacked up to make this sweet Christmas tree.  If you don't want to make a tree and make ornaments, I talk about how to do that too. Either way, they will be darling and so simple to do.

Here is the site:  www.creativepaperclay.blogspot.com





 I also wanted to post a couple of pictures of a sweet snowman I created this month.  I think he turned out great!  First time, I have used a candlestick in my art.  Not too bad for a first.  The candies on this guys tummy were made by using my candy tutorial on this blog.  Click on the tutorial label in the right hand column of this blog for the instructions.




Well, I am off to church!  Hope you all have a blessed day and I wish you the happiest of holidays!

Until next time ...

Sneak Peek -- Pfatt Marketplace New Offerings - Available December 10th at 10am!

Hi Everyone!

Boy, it's cold in California where I am!  Even in our little town of Wheatland, we got a light dusting of snow this afternoon.  I have never seen that in my 9 years of living here.  At least it all melted.  Good thing too, because I don't have a clue how to drive in the snow.  Hope you are warm and happy wherever you are.

Wanted to stop by the Charmed blog and give you a sneak peek at my new offerings for Pfatt Marketplace on December 10th.  Hot off the worktable are two sweet snowman ornaments!  I think they turned out pretty cute with their candy striped noses.

Each ornament is 6" tall (10" including the banner) and completely hand sculpted out of paperclay.  Their sweet faces are full of charm and character!  The hats are made out of vintage tart tins that I painted and glass glittered and there is a sweet Christmas bell under each of their collars (hard to see from the photos).  Each snowman was given a pearl paint wash over their icy skin to give them a frosty look.  Really beautiful in person!  They have been highly glittered and look beautiful on the tree!

The Red Snowman is named "Laughing all the Way" and the Blue Snowman is called "Dreaming".






Love this photo of the Blue Snowman.  You can see his silver Christmas bell underneath. 



This little guy is just too giggly! I am waiting for tears to pop out of his eyes - crying in laughter!


Oh ... these ornaments make me happy indeed!  

Stop by Pfatt Marketplace on December 10th  and see all the other offerings by the talented artists there!  Let's race!  Beat you there!   XOXO
