Sadie, The Quilter OOAK Art Doll

I just wanted to share my newest Art Doll with everyone.  Her name is Sadie and she's a quilter.  She is a custom order for a customer's sister, who also quilts.

Sadie is 20" tall with a serene hand painted face.  She is constructed from muslin and has pink satin stockings and a bohemian layered dress.  Her cloud of platinum hair is standard doll hair and she wears a headband to contain it.

The Colors Of The Rainbow

Polymer clay lends itself well to creating the colors of the rainbow.  It comes in a myriad of colors and other custom colors can be mixed quite readily.  It is good to keep a "recipe" book of just how you mixed certain colors, just in case you create a color that you absolutely adore. 

The current Blog Roll assignment for the Polymer Clay Smooshers Guild is "Rainbow"  and while I couldn't find any rainbows, I did find every color of the rainbow in their works. 

Here are just a few:

There are many more examples I could show but these are a few of the wonderful, colorful pieces made by the polymer clay artists on Art Fire.

April Showers Bring May Flowers

Another week and another blog roll for the Polymer Clay Smooshers Guild.  This week's topic is April showers.  Here in New England, we haven't had many of these.  As a matter of fact, we're having a bit of a drought right now.  Normally, my perennials would be coming up but they seem a bit delayed, maybe because of the lack of rain.  So while my yard is a bit bare of flowers, I can always count on my fellow Smooshers to make up for that with their gorgeous clay flowers.

Here's something from Creative Critters-the queen of floral scenes.
There are many more example but I think that I've covered a wide scope of the amazing flowers in polymer clay.

You Are My Sunshine

The color yellow comes in many hues, from bright sunshine yellow to palest tones.  Yellow seems to lift the spirit and brighten the day.  Here are some example from the Polymer Clay Smooshers Guild on Art Fire highlighting the color yellow.

This beautiful clay pendant highlights the complimentary colors of yellow and purple in an colorful explosion of flowers.

These vibrant yellow earrings are sure to draw attention.

Lovely Sunflower Pendant that reminds us that summer is never far away.

And another one of Creative Critter's whimsical designs.
