My First

This is my first time using a character design stamp with my polymer clay.  Great to work with.  The face, body, dream, and crown are made from stamping the polymer clay and then painting. The arms & legs are just stamped on paper and then added. Everything else is paper, lace trim, beads and stuff.  I just wanted her to stand out.

I put a link on the sidebar for the Character Stamp Shop that I got the character stamps from.  She has lots of great stuff. 
Let me know what you think of my new piece.

Fairy Heart Logo Tag

This is my Fairy Heart Logo Tag for Gypsy 4 Designs.  I am now selling them in my Etsy Shop.  All net proceeds from the sale of these tags will go to the Duke Children's Hospital.  All the tags come with one of three heart quotes on the back side.   You can choose which one you like.  You can use them to embellish a gift or as a book mark, even for us art journalists to add to our journals.  She is a sweet little fairy who is holding her heart in her hands for all to see. 

If you happen to be in the Raleigh area, you won't have to pay for shipping if you are close enough to pick up.  I will credit you back shipping cost through Paypal. 

I will feature more items with this Fairy Heart Logo, and anything I make with this Fairy Heart Logo on it, will have all profits going to the Duke Children's Hospital.  I am in the process of making a few more and can't wait to show you. 

If you are interested, there is a link to my shop on the side bar of this blog.  Just click on the fairy, and a way you will go.

Here is a wonderful art project I did with my 4 year old Granddaughter, Mackenzie.  She wants to be an artist when she grows up... Isn't that just Fabulous!  Grandma is very excited about this, and grandma also knows that artists never grow up.

Here are the lovely pictures...  

We started with stamps, then Mackenzie colored the flowers with colored pencils... She even stayed in the lines, amazing for a 4 year old.  Then we put glue, and she sprinkled colored glitter over her flowers, butterflies and sun.  You can see the rainbow she added in the corner. 

Mackenzie loves spending time with me in my studio, she is an amazing 4 year old, and will be a great artist one day.  Keep your eyes & ears out for Miss Mackenzie.
