COLORING PAR-TAH!!! :D

Heads up, I will be at Christmas in Lithia, Lithia Springs GA High School Craft show this weekend. I will not have my little sculptures with me, (they are still resting up from the DCon excitement LOL) But I will have my prints, The Adventure's of Mend children's book and my COLORING BOOK HennaDreamers available at my booth. I will be sharing the booth with my sister, her lovely patchwork items will be there. Some beautiful handcrafted purses, bags, holiday gifts and quilts for purchase. I will also have my husband's books with me, Winston and Baum SteampunkAdventure series. So make sure you come by to see us. :)
And that is not all.
My husband will be at C1 ComiCon in Ringgold GA on Saturday from 10am-5pm, He will have his books available along with some of my prints, children's books and my Coloring Book.

COLORING BOOK IS HERE!!!

I have been working on something for the past few weeks and I am finally finished, so I can now tell you all about it and I hope you will be as excited as I am. :)
I have recently gotten inspired by the art of Henna(the body staining/temporary tattoo artform). I found it very soothing to sit and doodle the designs after a long day. Before I knew it, I had several illustrations finished and thought, These would be fun to color. So guess what I did, I MADE A COLORING BOOK YAY!!! The book is filled with fun Henna designs and lovely ladies to help relieve stress as you add color to each page.
The coloring book is currently at the printers and I'm hoping to have it available on my Etsy store and at any shows I am attending by the 2nd weekend of November. My next show will be at Lithia Springs Christmas Craftshow in GA Nov. 12th and 13th so come on by and get your copy. Can't wait that long? You don't have to, you can get my coloring book on Amazon.com right now! It has just become available today OH BOY!

Here's a look at the kind of designs you will find in my Coloring Book.  

I am so very happy with how this project came out and I hope it will be relaxing and a fun way for the mature colorists to express themselves.
Thanks for reading everyone! Happy Coloring! :)

Pretty as a Peacock

So it has taken me a little while to recover after the hectic craziness that is Dragon Con, but I have finally got back to sculpting. I had a few requests for commission pieces at the beginning of October that I had to work on but with those done one of the first new pieces on my list was a Steampunk Peacock. Oooooooo :)
As always I start with the general shape of the bird, hand sculpting it out of polymer clay. Then I made some polymer clay canes for the feathers. A cane is comprised of two or more colors that you stretch and press together to make a rod that can then be cut to make several polymer clay "stickers" if you will, to be added to your sculpture.
The large tail feathers were canes that I press together and then stretched out to make a teardrop shape. 


After my canes were finished I flushed out more details on the face and body of my peacock.
I made some legs and feet for my sculpture and then started to add the small cane feathers. I placed each of them one at a time, smoothing the tip after it was placed. The end result was a fun array of black/white and green/yellow feathers covering my peacocks back.

Metal jewelry pieces were then carefully cut to the desired shape and added to the piece. Thus the Steampunk Peacock was finished and ready to brighten up anyone's home. :)




I hope you enjoyed and learned alot from my blog. This beautiful piece is available on my Etsy store, but there is only one so make sure to check it out. :)
Thanks for reading!
