Hello everyone who's been so kind and stuck with me so far. It's been a long year and hard to think that in July, I'll have been living on my own (but with my fiance) for 2. I never got around to making those couch pillows or curtains, but instead have made many new skills.
I've grown as an artist, to say the least.
Sculpture with polymer clay is something I still have a lot to learn about, but every time I work on a successful piece Im more proud. My pieces look better and better each time, and Ive made dozens of tiny charms and creations, which Ive only scratched the surface of showing you all.
I've also discovered how to sew mini tophats from vinyl and leather- while learning the hard way that you must equip your sewing machine with the proper needle and thread. XD
(Thank goodness for leather needles though! )
When it came to learning that, I was entirely on my own- taking what I knew of felt and cardstock tophats, and striving to find something more durable- something that if it got squished in your bag after you bought it, it wouldn't be ruined or have those terrible creases, and if you spilled on it, you'd be able to clean it off. Because as a young teen, I bought a lovely decorated felt miniature top hat, and it was quickly ruined by those things- so even though I loved it, and it wasn't the artists fault, it just as quickly made me feel that I wasted my money. But I've got to be grateful, to that artist whomever you are, because it inspired me!
So keep an eye out you guys, more is on it's way inspite of college, and in spite of work. Today- will be a crafting day.
