Creating Inner peace........

Yesterday day I started Week 8 of my Life Book 2016 Lessons.  These lessons have been a true blessing to me.  Helping me work through some personal stuff.  This one is done on a 3' X 3' piece of wood.  It's not quite done yet, but I have so enjoyed the process and thought I would share it with you.

Today's progress

Today's progress report. I had fun adding little details here and there to the mushroom and when he sits outside, it makes it even more realistic feeling.  

And I would like to mention that the Caterpillar measures 5" tall and wide. 

Building the Mushroom

Yesterday I started working on building the Mushroom for my Caterpillar.  So far so good!  It too is a process of building and sculpting, only I'm using fabric and that can get a bit more challenging.  In the end it's all a learning experience.  Some of the things you like and other things you don't like so much.  So you pick and choose the ones that work.  Life is Good!

Slowly but surely

Worked on the stick for my Caterpillar today.  Wire covered with upholstery batting and nylon hose.  I then needle sculpt some details into the stick and the give a base coat of Sobo Glue and finish it with acrylic paint.  I absolutely love how it turned out.

Good distractions happen

Been a little distracted with these "Quirky Birds" lately!  Every time I think I'm done, here comes another one.

Art everyday

So as you can see I don't just make trolls!  I make art every day and it makes me happy.  Yesterday I played with my next Life Book 2016 lesson.  

Of course it turned ugly before it turned good.  It seems like that is the rule of thumb with me. LOL  But it's all good, because its a lesson.  In the end I love how it turned out.  

Oh' there are a few more steps before it's done.  So........make something everyday!

One Stitch at a time

This is a process and what you think will work, might not! I love how with everything I do, the Caterpillar changes and evolves.  I love how he is turning out.  His jacket is just pinned, so today I will stitch it together.  

Then on to the backpack.  I'll have to find a nice soft piece of leather because it'll be a very small backpack.  Oh' did I mention his size?!?  He measure 5" X 5".  Crazy hugh?!?  More later!

Took a little break from needle sculpting today

Been messing around with these Quirky Birds for the past week.  Ok, so I should first tell you that I have been taking an on-line course called Life Books 2016 .  It started in January and each week you get a new lesson.

It's been a great experience and it has made me try some new things and really and I mean really step out of my comfort zone.  And every ones in a while a project just latches on like this one has.

These are postcard size and I have sent several of them out as little mail surprises.  I'm having fun creating this little critters and it's a fun project I can squeeze in here and there.

Maybe tomorrow........back to Caterpillar business.
