This month the Friesen Project, hosted by Kater's Acres, is focusing on Christi Friesen's second book in her series, Welcome to the Jungle! You can click on the button on my right sidebar to get all the information.
Our first task was to make leaves--lots of leaves in many shapes and sizes. I thoroughly enjoyed and lost myself in this project. I made no less than 50 teeny tiny leaves that could later be strung on wire and added to a project. Then I started making the larger, more awesome leaves! After making all these leaves, we had to have something to do with them. So here is the first project, a mirror:
I was glad I had a mirror on hand to use. It was a little small and so as not to crowd it too much, I added just one or sometimes two of a kind of leaf. The mirror is encased in clay and then all the leaves and embellishments were added. After curing, I added the beaded holder--see some of those teeny tiny leavesI mentioned? I can't wait to begin on the next project!
Have a happy, creative weekend everyone!
