Once again, it's What's On Your Workdesk? Wednesday! I do like to play along but don't always get to comment on everyone's posts. I'm trying, though! :)
So this is what I'm looking at this morning. Actually, I had to shovel everything to the left to type today, but this is how it will return in a minute. The little "staged" section smack in the middle (on the cutting mat) is me getting ready to do a tutorial on my style of image layering. The stamped images on the keyboard are what I thought I'd be working on this morning, but had to shove aside for the tut prep.
I'm really tickled to share these little gems. They unpainted clay was given to me by a new, extremely crafty friend who has yet to blog [*waving at Michelle while also poking her about blogging*]. She found these ultra cool molds and slapped some polymer clay into them. They were baked to a delicious hardness (that really looks like chocolate...) and I painted with Lumiere acrylic paints. I'll use them as flower centers or some such bauble. Neat - thanks again, Michelle!
I have a collection of vintage buttons and now am in search of molding compound to make my own baubles. :) There's porcelain clay out there, just calling to me.
The other thing I want to point out is my computer screen. It's Tim Holtz's first tag for the 12 Tags of Christmas 2010 extravaganza. I stalked Twitter as photos of his work in progress were uploaded last night. I was well asleep when it went live, but it was exciting anyway. Just looking at his tutorial gives me great ideas for products I already have on hand. Love!
