song in my heart


I don't have tons of charms--lots of stuff you
could use as charms, I suppose, but not a lot of
actual store-bought, this-is-a-charm, charms.
Sooooo I kind of combined two tutorial techniques,
one by Penny Bennington, and one by Shelly Hickox.
I used Model Magic instead of paper, AND
instead of Primo, basically because I didn't
want to have to rummage through my daughter's
room to find the "real" clay!

This piece goes along with the latest Gingersnap
Creations Spicy Supply Challenge
using, what else?
Charms, of course!

Sometimes I get so caught up playing with a new
technique, that the actual make is just kind of,
well, bleah, but this turned out pretty well. I
know, because that aforementioned daughter is not
shy with her opinions. She says she approves. ;)

Does anyone else have a live-in art critic?

****update****



Well, I guess the girl child was right--
thank you, Gingersnaps!

This is soooo pretty , Trish! Just looking at it is giving me courage to rip open a package of paper clay I bought a while back :)

Love how this turned out! My daughter is constantly wanting to make me things to sell on my site...haha! I have quite a stack of papers and small canvases I'm supposed to let everyone know are available....
Someday she won't be 5 anymore...and won't care so much about what I'm doing.....*sigh*

Have a great weekend!
