Sneak Peak of new items for next craft show... Part 2

Hello
I have been slowly building up stash of new products to sell at this year's craft shows. I normally do not show off what I am bringing. I recently got into paper beading and started rolling my own paper beads.  Some of these are painted in nail polish or glitter.  Using pinterest and you tube has hooked me in certain new crafts and maybe a few of them will emerge in the next few months.  I am new at jewelry making so I have a lot to learn. If you or anyone are interested in any of the pieces below come out to the shows. You can find a list of  the shows if you click on the appearance tab on my blog. Hopefully I will see you at the next show.

                         


             



       


I have also creating altered spoons for the next craft show too. My mother liked a few of them and suggested I make a few and see if they sell. This altered spoon is made from book pages along with the person sitting in the spoon reading a book is made of book pages.

  1. The earrings are lovely and so original. Painting in nail polish is a great idea for vibrant color and shine, I had not thought of that!

Quilling or paper filigree is an art form that involves the use of strips of paper that are rolled, shaped, and glued together to create decorative designs. The paper is wound around a quilling tool to create a basic coil shape. The paper is then glued at the tip and these shaped coils are arranged to form flowers, leaves, and various ornamental patterns similar to ironwork.

Children age 12 and older, teens and adults are welcome to attend. If your a beginner or at a higher level I can provide teaching and have the time to work on projects that are simple or that can challenge you.

Quilling and Zentangle 3d Purple Doll

The 3d doll took me 11 hours to create her. I started first with the skirt and zentangled with a Bic purple pen and created the pattern from ideas online. I sketched it out first in pencil then erased the pencil marks and went over it in pen. The zentangle part took three hours just for the Bic pen part. Then I built the body around the skirt. The arms took the longest and struggled with them. I never add faces to the dolls because I am afraid I will mess it up and have to start it over. Quilling paper was used for the body. I used manila file folders and shredded my own strips for the skin tone. I had feathers at home so I cut some pieces off and added to the hat. The doll was finished on July 30, 2013.
