Polymer Clay Day #9: Trinket Box ASK and Receive

ASK2 Day 9 down. Another Goodwill find, converted to a God box. I love this scripture, ask and you shall receive.
This project was more time consuming than I anticipated, but very fun. I got to mix graphic design with clay-ing. I created the image with the Matthew 7:7 verse, glue it onto a rectangle piece of clay, took that and placed on a larger piece of marbled clay I had textured with a doily. Covered the image and gold rectangle with translucent liquid sculpey and baked the stack in the oven. After it cooled, I antiqued the larger marbled clay piece with dark brown acrylic paint. Glued this to the box top using Ranger Glossy Accents. Oh yeah, before attaching the clay to the box top, I sanded the box and painted it with Renaissance Gold Leaf paint. Then sprayed 3 coats of Mod Podge acrylic sealer over the painted box (drying 15 min between coats). I got the inspiration from this tutorial on the Sculpey website.

Polymer Clay Day #5


I know I thought I would delve into home decor for my day's clay adventure, but my mind was elsewhere. Today was hectic, and this reminds me to take life a day at a time. I learned this concept through addiction recovery, and it has been essential in my spiritual journey. I am better at it some days than others. God, grant me the serenity...






Day O’ Clay 3: Faux Ivory AA Circle Triangle Pendant




I love the faux ivory look I got by combining transparent sculpey clay with sculpey ecru. I am so excited about all the the faux looks achievable with polymer clay. An amazing resource for everything polymer clay that I have stumbled upon recently is Diane's Glass Attic, here. There are tons of projects to try, as well and in depth coverage of terms and basics of working with this medium. 3 days down. I am such a task person. This and more will be in my Etsy store...

Today’s Clay – Day 2



Here is day 2's clay project - AA's circle triangle (representing the 3 legacies; Unity, Service, Recovery). I have a blast making these. To see more, visit my Etsy store, here. Loving the matching earrings, although I don't normally wear jewelry on my ears. These work for me.

Blessings!

Faux Abalone Circle Triangle Pendant From Polymer Clay

FauxAlbalone1
New adventures in polymer clay. My goal is to have these on my etsy store within 24 hours! A friend asked me if I ever worked with abalone. He wanted me to make him a sobriety necklace circle triangle with the triangle made of abalone. Instead, I found an amazing tutorial (here) on faux abalone from polymer clay. Loving the exploration of new effects with my medium of the month! What do you think?

Iron on Recovery Gift T-shirt

MySponsorHeartsMeThis was today's project, along with some rockin' jewelry that I will share with you in the future.
I can't take credit for the saying on the t-shirt, just for the design and the handiwork. My friend Judy asked me to put this on a shirt for her. It was easy to make, and it stirred up some t-shirt ideas in my noggin. For the record, Judy and I have the same sponsor. I am pretty sure I am the favorite. Therefore I cannot vouch for the accuracy of the message depicted. I didn't have enough letters to add "besides Johnnie" at the end. That would be more in line with the truth. Haha. Love you, Judy!
