It was about two weeks ago that as a family we were laying around, enjoying the fall weather and a little Auburn football. For some reason late Saturday night I decided I HAD to make something. The kids were situated, Billy was situated, and I was antsy. So off to the garage I went seeking out supplies. I didn't want to paint and the family dislikes it when I make jewelry because its loud. Hmmm... so I grabbed a block of floral foam, large bowl and paper mache. Yep. Oh, and a steak knife and some duck tape. This beautiful angel was created from those ingredients.
I love to take pictures of my process, and I will show you one day, but for now here is the end result. After finishing the mache body, I baked her....and baked her....until finally all that paper mache was dry. And then she sat for almost two weeks. I wasn't ready to make her come alive I suppose. Then Monday I started painting, adding glitter, and adding details. And then the sewing machine came out for wings and the tutu. And more glitter was added. It was such a nice change from my normal art making routine. So nice.
I hope you are having a lovely week and are able to take some time to think about what you cherish.
