what did i get myself into????

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.
