It's been a while.....but summer is here and we are in full ARTS and CRAFTS mode here at the homefront.
So, while I am in school I am not on here much...nor can I actually do fun things with the chirren to have anything to post here....you get the gist....anyhoo- Now I am OUT OF CLASSES FOR THE SUMMER!!!!! YAHOOO!!! Yesterday we had our first session (still in my kitchen, not in my soon to be newfangled basement studio...which is being worked on by my wonderful husband as I type this...I can totally hear him banging around down there)... We made Shoeprint "clay" pendants and 3 Minute Messy Mondrians. If I can figure out how to link the pendant lesson ...hmmm... maybe if you click here you will be taken to the lesson...and here are some of the pics of the kids and their pendants they made.
|look what you made!!!!|

|picking out the perfect bead|
|those are some supah-fab clay pendants!!!|
Here are the pics I took:
and here is the collage I made from those pictures....because I like to do this sort of thing.

I love abstract artsy stuff. This is right up my alley. I used alcohol inks on glossy paper and just let the colors ooooze all together. I tilted the paper up and down to get them to blend. Really, I might be addicted. I could play with alcohol inks all dern day.

I used Sculpey clay
(Ultra Light?? something like that, but I am sure the regular Sculpey would work just as well)
and then baked...and then let cool...and then painted with acrylic paint...
My Christmas tree loves it!
