Snowflakes and Reindeer Craft projects

Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to you all. I made a bunch of snow flakes for the craft shows and reindeer for co-workers who gave be cards and gifts at work this year. Each year I give an ornament away for free when co-workers give. Enjoy the photos.

 3d Snowman card that I made for a class I was going to teach. I added a mini snowflake to the right of the card. When I find the card I will take a photo again and post the most updated photo later.  2015
 The Recycled Reindeer: The paper I used came from the brown paper that came in the boxes that were delivered at work. I made 20  reindeer for the cards and gifts I get from co-workers. I followed a video on you tube to learn to create the reindeer. The video is in another language but I silence the video and watch it and created a few deer until I remembered how to do it without the video. I used nail polish for the nose and the eyes I used black ciate jewel pedicure for the eyes of the reindeer. Here is the video:

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.

Quilled guitar

I finally stopped procrastinating and followed through with a clients project she asked me to do a month ago. I used quilling paper to create a guitar. It is a 8 by 10 frame and fits the frame. It took 4 hours to create. Created 9/4/16

The second image is is what inspired me to create the guitar with the tulips. It is not my design it is a vector I found on the web.  I liked it and it helped motivate me to create.
