Make it Monday Clay
Just enough time this morning to join in the Papertrey Ink Make it Monday challenge. I really like the idea of using stamps and dies to make clay embellishments and other decorative projects - I've an idea to use the technique for hanging decorations and mobiles too. I made a few medallion shapes suitable for cards and this pumpkin image turned out the most presentable. The Fimo clay I had in my stash had been there for at least 10 years so was not that easy to work with. I'll need to buy more when I try this technique out again.
Anyway, I think we are all resigned to the fact that Autumn is on its way - but I say YIPEE! I love Autumn and the run up to the festive season - surely the best time to be a crafter. And just to be sure it really is the season of fruitfulness I picked one of the cobnuts from the bushes I have grown from nuts. Its their first crop (ok - only 6 nuts, but that's a start), and look at the juicy kernel. It was delicious too!
