Miniature Art

I was looking through some older posts and came across a little project from YEARS ago.  I am remembering how fun these were to make, which got me to thinking....maybe my sculpting class would enjoy it too.  Now I am thinking MINIATURE SCULPTURE ART SHOW!  Or at least a section of minis in the show.  Viewers could even be given magnifying glasses to check out the details.

I made these into pins and jewelry. The kids could just focus on the sculpture, not accessory making.

 Anyone out there have thoughts about a MINI sculpture exhibit? I would love the feedback.

Old Dog, New Tricks

 I have been away from my craft blog for a while, but I'm working on becoming more active again.
I went back to school to pursue my dream of becoming an Art Teacher.  Well, I am glad to say that I am almost finished with school {whoop whoop} and I am currently doing my student teaching internship.  I am having an absolute blast with the kids!  I should have done this years ago.  
This journey has not always been easy (math...not.my.thang), but it has given me the opportunity to create a lot of art and put wonderful new friends in my life.  Not to mention that I will soon be a super cool ART TEACHER!  I guess you CAN teach an old dog new tricks. 😏
Here's a little something I was up to while I was away...
Cupcake, Pastel Drawing
It's SWEET to be back, blog world!

Mickey Muffins

I am craving Mickey shaped muffins from the Boardwalk Bakery today.  I guess I am really just missing my home away from home.  We love these yummy muffins before  heading to the parks.

Paper flowers with some bling.

Glitter chip board letters.

Nerd alert!

It's back to school time and Some Odd Girl has a super cute new digi that is PERFECT for this time of year.  Meet the newest digital stamp in the Some Odd Girl shop, Nerdy Tia...
Tia is ready to strut her stuff with those fluffy pony tails and big glasses. She would be fun on a card for the teacher or great on the cover of a note book.

Check out the Some Odd Girl blog to see how the other Odd Girls are using Nerdy Tia in their projects!

Pearl Mermaid

There is just something magical about mermaids, and this new mermaid from Some Odd Girl is no exception.  She is called Pearl Mermaid and she's a digi, so you can adjust her size or flip her to the mirror image if you like.  She has beautiful flowing hair and holds a giant pearl.

I decided to make her fins have a pearl look, so I shaded with gray copic then added some shimmer mist to the paper.  I also added glaze to her pearl.  There are all sorts of ways to color her up.  Take a look at the Some Odd Girl blog for more Pearl Mermaid inspiration!
