Yay! Finally...More New Stuff and A Lesson Learned

Agatha just loves her crown and she thinks she looks so regal with it on.
Momma Maddie and baby Margo.

Some chubby little houses.
Okay, my lesson learned this week was an interesting one. I had these big chunks of packing foam and I was thinking how cool it would be to use said foam block, cut into cute little house shapes and then covered with paper mache.
Yeah! I'm definitely on to something here! I get to have a ready supply of foam blocks and I can cut them into interesting shapes.

When I get a project going I "usually" stick with it, wanting to get it done as I'm so excited by the prospects of it and with Celluclay all I have to do is pop it into the oven on a low temp to "bake" it and then I can easily move on to the next step.

I swear, it never even occured to me...

Totally my fault as I had initially made 13 of the little buggars.

Foam and an oven? bummer. I just LOVE the eyes on your creations!

I LOVE BABY MARGO! I agree with the previous comment that the eyes are the best! I really don't know much about this kind of art but it's so cool that I can look at each piece and see a different personality in each of them.
