Bottle Babe

Here is a 'no sew' muse that I made as taught in Barb Owens Mining Your Muse class.  I  made this tab head face previously.  I added more hair to complete this muse.  She is made from a recycled bottle, hence the name "Bottle Babe".

Another Artsy Fartsy Muse

In the Mining Your Muse class when Barb Owen showed the class how to make the first 'Artsy Fartsy Muse' we sewed enough fabric for the body of two muses.  I made another one and she is big just like the first one (LOL).  I guess my muses just want to be gigantic!  This one is a dancer too.

she has a paper flower and beaded noodle face & sponge paint brush arms.

Dance bag and tutu.  I think there is a tiara in her dance bag-just saying (LOL)

prismacolor pencil legs (I had a whole box of fluorescent yellow pencils in my stash)
She may a bit top heavy, but she has PERFECT balance.

This is a fun class, I have learned a lot.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you come again soon.


Fall Tag Swap

These are the tags I received in a recent swap.  The Scrappy Chicks crop every Thursday. I have an opportunity to attend sporadically, but I lucked out and got into this swap.

Thanks: Kathy, Barb, Pet,Carol, JoAnn, and Mary

Gratitude IS a LOVE attitude!  I am grateful for all my artsy friends.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you come again soon.


A Muse With a Soul

I learned how to make this muse in Barb Owens Mining Your Muse class.  She calls it a muse with a soul.  The variegated yarn hair reminds me of Cruella DeVille from 101 Dalmatians (LOL)

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you stop by again soon.


Fall Tags

I made these tags for a swap.  They are CAS (Clean and Simple) according to me.  I used a technique that I learned from Rubber Cottage several years ago.  I had forgotten how to do the stippling onto a glossy tag.  Then I found a blog post, then I lost it so I am unable to provide a link (sorry). I had all the supplies on hand because I purchased them at the Stamp Scrap and Art Tour many years ago with the intention of creating tags that I learned at a make and take hosted by Rubber Cottage.  Crafters REALLY do eventually use their stash (LOL).

Materials: Glossy tags, gold leaf pen, studio G stamps, beads, beading wire, ribbon, stickles, Adirondack inks, archival ink.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you come again soon.
