Finding New Things

Hi, here are some more looks at my work room.
Some before the clean up.
Enlarge the second pic down to see a pic of some great doll teachers all together (centre, top of pic).
We had a Symposium in 05 I think. With, Susie Oneil Aus, Sherry Goshon U.S., Marilyn Halcombe Aus, Gloria WinnerU.S., and the co ordinator Dawn Okeefe AUS,
here at the Sunshine Coast in Queensland. I am lucky enough to have been able to be at workshops with these great teachers.
When I look back over the last 6 yrs. I know I have been taught by the best. and feel very blessed and inspired by them and what I have acheived.
In the same pic right in the middle is a head of a grey haired lady (some say she looks like me)and dont your dolls faces do sometimes have a likeness to self LOL.
This was the first pin doll I did for a comp in a workshop when I went to Sydney Aus, in 04,Wkshop was with Patti Culea, I had no idea of sculpting faces or beading as I had only been at it for a few months,, but as I always said, I try.
Now as one thing leads to another, Polymer Clay has taken my fancy, and I am still making a mess in my craft room. here's to the next tidy up,when I'll
Find New Things to talk about and reminise about.
So theres always something to keep one interested and happy , and forging ahead.
Dont hide you light, keep trying
Soar ahead, dont just fly.
Till next time whenever that will be, I''ll be at your place

What a magical room you have. Sure hope that you didn't clean that bulletin board up too much, it's a feast for the eye with a riot of colours (as are the dolls). I can't get the last picture to enlarge with a click like the others to see what transpired in the "after" picture, but I bet it's still magical.
Wishing you a beautiful day.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I'll have to try adding glitter to the clay, and I am really intrigued by the idea that you can use eye shadow powders to get pastel colors. Great tips!

Hi Marie,
no, thank you for your stopping by here. Glad you liked my hint. try it it really does work and was only out of nessecity I did that, as Embossing powders were called for which I didnot have. Use the powdered Eye shadow all the time now.
Will try to find time to put a tut in here about it
thanks again
Bye Lots of love
