Tweener work for the next doll!~


So...I was feeling like I was in the need of trying some already learned and some New techniques. I Want my next doll to incorporate a technique that I have to learn ...and Then I'll apply that technique to the doll.

I Finally got to watch a bunch of DVDs that I ordered!  I really picked up a lot of cool things.  The Four that I really loved were by Beryl Taylor, Ruth Rae,  Tim Holtz, and Angie Scarr.

 

I am only in the beginning stages, right now...I started by creating a bunch of Fabric papers, with muslin, tissue papers, colorful napkins, and some Vintage ephemera that I had.  I coated some old book pages and a part of my handmade papers with 2 part resin...to make this very cool..glass like paper, the book pages actually came out translucent shiny...I want to cut that into  shapes with my sizzix, then add stitches and findings. 



I tried the very cool technique of heating thin pices of polymer with my heat gun...and then using a paper punch to cut designs. I took this a couple steps further...by rolling thin sheets of clay, dusting with perfect pearls,  then texturizing with stamps, some inked ....then baking so that its hard and flexible.  I punched my desings...then used more perfect pearls, rub on colors, paint pens..then glossed them with triple thick...I love the embellishments you can create with this simple cool technique!



I found the best paper punches that also have matching stamps (3 designs)  that snap right onto the punch, so you dont lose them...the stamps really add depth to the clay design...These were Martha Stewart paper punches..WOW!

Very cool! Like the idea of using a punch on the clay. I am amazed it didn't gunk up your punch! Can't wait to see what you do with them.
