This and That

I'm finally going to show the swaps I got in for the PIF I took part in a few months ago.  I got 3 wonderful items; from Ann I received a large hanging, which had foamboard as the base, from Kayc I received a little book, and from Kay another piece of hanging art.  I'm absolutely delighted with them all.  The 2 hanging pieces are just hanging from cupboards in the kitchen till I find a home for them.  I've finally finished a configuration box that several of us did some months ago - mine just needed one more thing but I was stuck as to what till Pat gave me a fairy template.  So I cut one out of shrink plastic and she fits the bill just fine :-) 






















 









I've been using some airdrying clay with some face molds I have but thought I'd have a go at doing my own face - well not MY OWN face but you know what I mean LOL.  It's 11/2"x11/4"

If you'd like to see some of the things we do at the doll group I'm a member of, click this link craftydollybirds.  The papier mache doll I was making is on there (she doesn't have any hands and who knows, she may never get any!!!)

Looks like that shrink plastic angel was the perfect size and shape for the box. I really like the face you created. I've never used air dried clay, but it looks like you did a fantastic job with it. And your PIF pieces are lovely, too.

Thanks for telling me about Julia mentioning my birthday on her blog. I was off the computer for two days, and that was a real surprise.
