I seem to do this quite often. I buy things which I think at that moment is a good idea. I bought some Hearty clay for a class that I was going to take with Sherry. I only wanted a little bit of white colour clay. But when I went to buy I saw that they were selling it as a special purchase with some other colours. So I went and bought 3 other colours with grand plans of making some great things out of it. Well you know what happens with these grand ideas they get shelved. Yesterday while searching for something I came across the clays and decided it was time to make some jewelry out of it . So I went and opened all the packets hoping to make this jewelry I had planned. There is always a spoke in the wheel when you plan things and guess what, one of the packets had gone off so there went my grand idea of making designer jewelry lol! The other 2 packets were fine but since I had opened the packets I had to use them. I was so annoyed that without thinking I took the clay out of the packets mixed them up and started kneading them. Slowly this is the shape that evolved. I then painted it with acrylic colours sealed the paint. Embellished it with glitter to my hearts content that even I ended up looking like a Christmas tree. Added pearls and crystals and micro beads to give it texture. I like what has evolved. Actually it looks much better in real life than in a picture. The picture doesn't show all the glitzy stuff that has gone onto it. Now all I need is a little fairy to sit on it to complete the picture.
