ABS ORNAMENT BLOG HOP

 
 
 
I was excited this year to be included in
 
ArtbeadScene - ABS ORNAMENT BLOG HOP
 
I love ABS, I enjoy every monthly challengs.
 
This one is for fun and to share and hop.
 
Thank you ABS for including me in another fun event.
 
 
I have been really ill but started making my ornament
 
a few days back not wanting to miss out on the fun.
 
I of course wanted part polymer but with a twist.
 
I started with this huge round ball.
 
Lots of odd shapped things sticking out.
 
Then I thought ewe who wants an alien ball for their tree.
 
NOT ME.
 
So I stuck a few sculpting utensils in it and walked away.
 
Tommorow will be a better day.
 


Woke up Sunday morning.
 
 
Feeling pretty good.
 
Took that huge ball, cut it in four pieces.
 
Yes huge almost 4 oz of clay.
 
 
Pretty white clay, glitter effect clay, pearl clay.
 
 
Took out the sculpting tools.
 
They looked like antennas.
 
Made me giggle.
 
Decided to use my favorite sculpting technique
 
Clay Embroidery.
 
Very tiny bits of clay that is all sculpted with your hands
 
a few tiny tipped tools
 
and it turned out really pretty.
 
 
 
 
 
Pretty sculpted snowflake of sorts
 
Every snowflake is different right.
 
Well this is my special snowflake.
 
 
But it needed more. Where is the bling.



Much Better
 
 
Pretty seed beads in pearls, whites, clears, blues
 
 
Some pretty feathers tipped in mica powders to match.
 
 
I was happy with my pretty little ornament.
 
 
Oh and a beaded double loup on the top. 
 
 
 
 
 




 
 

Love my pretty little ornament and it has inspired me.
 
Excited to incorporate this into many new jewelry designs.
 
I see earrings and necklaces in my future.
 
Thank goodness I have a box of feathers calling me.
 
While I go to fluff the feathers and grab a Diet Pepsi.
 
I'm ready to Hop. 
 
Ill be sure to stop by all these amazing blogs

Glad you could join us Miss Kimi! Sorry to hear that you are not feeling well, and I hope you feel better soon! This is a very ethereal ornament, like angels wings and frost fairy kisses. I love it! Enjoy the day. Erin

I laughed at your comment about the alien ornament! Some of mine have looked exactly like that at one point or another. But the working through it to the beautiful design you created makes it even more special. I love the ribbon embroidery look, so dainty!

Becky Pancake said...

Awesome!

*TeeHee* the PC has a mind of it's own at times, and we had best let it win once in a while, Kim! I was so impressed at the total package, especially the little feather. I don't work with feathers so I'm always pleased to learn how others use them. Love how you refer to the PC bead as "Clay Embroidery"... that's a great term, and your work is lovely.

I wish you and your family much peace, joy and especially good health this Blessed Season!
