You may already know this, but one of the things I do regularly is challenge myself. I like to make something with all the scrappy things left on my work table when I'm ready to clean it to do another project.
I needed to clean the area to prepare for sewing, so as I gathered up bits and pieces of fluff and googlies, I came across a wad of silver colored Premo clay. I squished it around a bit and decided that it looked like a pea pod. So I ran with this idea. After forming and baking it, I aged it a bit and foiled it a bit and added a piece of sterling silver wire as a bail.
Not wanting to rat my dear hubby out, I won't give an exact quote, I will just say that this is not his favorite pendant. He tends to like more traditional designs and thought this was...less than cute. But sometimes it's not how beautiful a piece is, sometimes it's just about the creative process.
So here's my challenge to you, the next time you need to move onto another project and have tiny bits of fabric and left over clay and pieces of "junque", make something from them. Put on your thinking cap. Think about unusual shapes, color combos that you don't usually use, and then put your scrap art piece together. Maybe you have been wanting to try Steampunk, or do cutesie, instead of funky. Whatever it is, push yourself a bit outside the box if you want. They are scraps after all, and can be discarded if you want to. You don't have to post a picture of it, you just have to do it.
So there you go Scrappy Doo, make something different. You just might like it.
