Trying to be creative.........


Some days it's really hard to get motivated, maybe cause today is Monday?!?  Not sure what project I want to start next.  So I did a couple pages in an old calendar.  Trying to get the creative juices flowing....................

Fat Brown Toad is done

Fat Brown Toad is finished!  Well, you might see a little bit of the drying glue.  This was such a fun project.  I may just do another.  He's not 100%  accurate.  I didn't know they had butts?!?  Mine doesn't LOL.  

It was a great learning process.  The Toad measures 5.5" L X 5" W X 4" H.  Made from one of my Eco dyed T-shirts, needle sculpted and finished with a coat of Sobo Glue.

Sometimes you have to listen

This morning I attempted to make the front legs for my Toad. Well, needless to say Toad had other ideas.  So instead I started stitching texture into the skin of my Toad.  I'm not sure how many hours I  have stitched, but I like where this is going.



Oh' how can't wait what else he tell me to do.  It has taken me many years to listen to my pieces and go with the flow.

Two hind legs


My brown toad is beginning to look like a Toad!  I'm really enjoying using this old Eco dyed T-shirt for this project.  I been sewing I don't know for how many hours?!?  A lot!  Am calling it a day, because my fingers hurt and I'm at a good place to stop.  

He now has two eyes, some needle sculpting done to his head and has two hind legs.  He almost looks like he could hop away or ribbit and tell me this fantastic tale, of an adventure he has just been on.

Front legs coming soon.

New project

So many ideas rolling thru my head.  The hard part is to figure out how to execute them. Using some of my Eco dyed fabric. This will be interesting to see how it transforms from a sketch to a realistic or fantasy kind of sculpture. I'll keep you posted on the progress and there will be a troll to go with the fat brown toad.

Upcycled Bedsheet into PJ's

Well sometimes I have to just do something different.  So today I took half of an old Smurf Bedsheet and turned in to a pair of PJ's.  So now I have a new pair of PJ's and the bed sheet got new life.  They feel great!  So I stay busy on these hot summer days!

Working on my Life Book Lesson #31



I've been working on my Life Book Lesson #31 the past couple of days.  So this is still a WIP.  Learning all sorts of cool things.  One was to use carbon paper to transfer some of my images.  It was a great process.  This is all for today, it will get a few more layers.
