Apparently, I'm still trying to get some kind of schedule in place with me working part-time, dealing with a health issue and keeping up with my "Therapy sessions". (that's my art peoples..hehe) I have finally decided that an old saying my great grandmother use to say is needed to be put in place to help solve my situation. "You can never find extra time, you have to make it". Wise woman she was.
I did squish around the clay some and have a torso and head and at this point my muse is having quite the argument with herself as to whether this ooaks will be a mermaid or a faerie. I'll just sit back and patiently wait until she decides.
Now....I have really gotten my creative juices revved up for a very cool and fun swap I'm in. I don't normally do swaps but.....well......I LOVE this group and have just been coolly sitting on the side lines and watching their work and just decided I wanted to join in. It's the EWWL Halloween Flea Market Follies swap and I tell ya there are some really amazing artist in this group. Cindy Tevis, one of the members had those of us that wanted to participate speak up and say so (hehehe bossy woman) and then she put us with another swap person and we had to send them an item we found at a flea market. Once we received our items we then had to "transform" it into a piece of art. Once we complete the pieces then
Now seeing that it's for a EWWL (Halloween group) the first thing I did was paint it black. (just looking at that cute little wooden horse was NOT doing it for the imagination at all.) Of course, once it was black I thought Day of the Dead and how I could paint it up. Then I thought "Noooo, that's probably what someone else would think of doing". Y'all know I like to be different so that idea was out. It didn't take me long to think of just what this little rocking creature was trying to tell me it wanted to be. HEY....told ya I was different. (snicker snort) OMGOSH.....I made a funny there. Did ya get it? Snicker snort and it's a horse. OK okay....what was I talking about? I decided that this item was screaming DRAGON to me and so I'm going with that idea.
I've gotten my pattern made to transform it into a dragon and now am trying to decide if I want to use heavy cardstock and hand paint it OR if I'm going to use foam sheets and cut out each piece. Which will take some time since dragons are covered in scales. YIKES!! I had better hurry up and decide, eh? This piece has to be completed by June 25th so would that someone that has time all figured out pppplease push the slow down button for me. PPPPLEASE!!!!
Until next time.............
