Branching Out!

I have been experimenting of late. A chance encounter with some air drying clay led me to creating something different to my normal crochet! I gathered all my equipment together in this sunny (well it was trying to be sunny!) place.


Ah the place I love the most (outside wall and fence need painting but inside – I love!) And while pootling I created these. Let me know what you think ok?


One shroom! Close to my heart and at this stage not quite finished! It now has a few more flowers, a repainted but still distressed door and glitter shining from the window.


One sparkly teeny tiny sign. Awaiting the wire to hang it with and the addition of some teeny tiny beads too.


Another teeny tiny sign – as above!

Many moons ago I used to paint angels with glass paint – here’s one


With the clay I wondered – could I create something similar? could I? It turns out – yes happily I could and here she is now (I’m especially proud of her – can you hear the drum roll?)


Tah Dah! Oh how I love this little angel! She is rustic and I love love love her! In fact I love her so much that I am making her a family! She will eventually hang but for now she sits – propped angelically up next to a candle.

I love making things out of air drying clay almost as much as crochet! (but not quite.)

Until next time, I’ll be building a family of angels and shrooms!
