each year good friends of ours host a wonderful Christmas Party. The hostess is an angel freak - so for years I bought her an angel ornament. Then I started getting my creative thang going, and started making her angels.
Here are a couple of examples of what I've made her in the past:
so this year I couldn't figure out what I was going to make her. I felt like I used up all my good ideas.
For some reason I decided that working with paper clay, a face mold and wire would make a delightful angel.
What was I thinking?????
I really should have had more of a plan in place. Playing with unknown things is fun, but not as fun when you're under the gun to give a gift. And definitely not as fun when you have NO idea what the end result will be.
I have visions of buying an ornament in WalMart on our way to the party...
So I'm in the studio - playing... swearing... laughing... and I think a tear or two has been shed.
This is the WIP... I'm envisioning her laying in a raised textured bed of spackle. All stark white behind her... and the wire embedded in the spackle.
wish me LUCK.
