Actually every day is fabulous. Today especially, as I got an e-mail from a bloggy friend telling me to watch for some mail she is sending me. That is so sweet and it reminded me that another bloggy friend sent me a gift and I forgot to post it. So as soon as I get the second one, I will post them both. I have the best friends.
On a different note, it's been raining again here in the Star City, but that certainly doesn't keep me from doing a project. My hubby and I eat canned tuna periodically, and I love the size of the cans. I have been saving them for a rainy day project and yesterday I came up with this.
For those of you new to polymer clay, you can not only sculpt and make beads with it, you can cover a variety of items with it to make such fun stuff. I used beige colored clay and covered the outside of the tuna can with the clay. There are several ways to do this, but I liberally applied liquid clay to the outsides and bottom of the can before applying the bottom circle, and the long strip around the sides. I then made polymer clay flowers and leaves to make a little design.
I am going to use this little box for jewelry, so I finished off the inside with fabric and a padded bottom, (just like me).
Just a little trinket box here, but the possibilities are endless, I have covered light bulbs, cardboard boxes, and wooden items, just to name a few. I have been playing with polymer clay for years, off and on, but I almost always go back to jewelry. I did want to show you this and remind you that there is an artist in you just waiting to come out. You don't have to wait for a rainy day to invite that artist in, go for it and have fun.
Hope everyone has a great weekend. The hubs is getting ready to take me to lunch and a movie, so I'll say bye for now, but we'll talk soon. Take care.
