Be not afraid of growing slowly; be afraid only of standing still. --Chinese Proverb
In Lesson 17, Elizabeth teaches and demonstrates all about polymer clay. You can go here to see her post. I am already familiar with working with oven baked clays, but there is always something new to learn, and I devoured this lesson like I did all the others. Here is my spread:
The pink hearts in the dancers hands (or just released) are, of course, made from white and pink clay smooshed together, then rolled out, cut with cutters, and then altered the shape on one a bit. You probably can't see in the photo, but the 2nd little palm tree on the right page was cut out and added, as well as the left half of the middle palm tree. I was trying to give a little extra texture.
My AB is certainly getting fat & I now appreciate why we might want to gesso the cover first unless we planned to use its design for our cover design! The next lesson covers fabric, and I am working on a more intricate spread that includes polymer clay two. Stop by for the reveal in about a week and a half!
Again, thank you so much, Elizabeth, for taking us on the altered book journey!
