Hello and Welcome to my Blog ~ I love art of all kinds. Two of my favorites are polymer clay and paper art. I have shops on Etsy that feature both of my passions. I also love writing my blog and finding artists that have a passion for their craft and feature them. I hope your day is filled with sunshine, laughter and loads of creativity.

My Masked Face Received A Ribbon!

I am overwhelmed with excitement. I received a letter from the Texas State Fair that the polymer clay masked face I entered received a third place ribbon.  I have never entered anything in the fair before and didn't know quite what to expect.  You should have seen me when I read that I was a winner. I actually think I was walking on air. 



            


I have loved masked faces ever since I traveled to Venice Italy and saw them in the little shops that abound along the waterway. It is quite amazing that by covering part of your face, you suddenly become very mysterious.

I began my creative journey with polymer clay in May of 2010. I find it to be a wonderful medium to work with. I love taking a lump of clay and turning it into something whimsical and fun. My daughter, Trina, of Trina's Clay Creations has been creating wonderful figurines and cake toppers for many years.  If it weren't for her, I would not have even tried working with the clay. Needless to say, she is my inspiration.

Awesome work!

Thank you Art2cee2 so much. I loved working on her. I was going to put her in a shadow box, but then I thought that the judges would much rather be able to handle her, so I displayed her on a picture frame stand .
