Looky What I Won!

Wanted to show and tell a very cool prize that I won!  It was made by the wonderful and very talented Gourdqueen!  I'm sure you have seen her work before, she truly has a unique one of a kind style!  She comes up with the most coolest ideas using gourds!  She had  recently made an Apple Tree Birdhouse that I just thought was amazing!!  If you have not seen her blog, you really should go check it out!

Here is Gourdie's pumpkin ornie that I was lucky enough to win!! 


I just love it!  His face is just too cool!  Thank you so much Gourdie!!  He is wonderful!

Also Gourdie was so thoughtful in sending my daughter these very cool sunglasses along with the ornament!  Kaylie loves them and has been having a blast putting them on our dog Marley!  I really can't say if Marley is enjoying it as much though!haha

Witch Room Slowly Getting Fireplace!

Thought I would invite you back into the minature witch room that I have slowly been working on.  I can't believe it has been about a month now.  Not much more has been completed.  I am still working on the fireplace as you can see.  I put some paper clay over some wood, lined out the bricks and then let dry. 

Photobucket

I used this really cool stamp that I had found a while back at a craft store.  It has three different textures that resemble concrete.  I thought it would work great with the brick.  I'm not very good at mixing paint, so I just threw a bunch of different colors together as you can see below.

Next, I washed it with gray to fill in the grout lines.  Below is the brick fiished.  Oh, I guess I still need to dirty it up abit so that it looks like it has been used.  Also added another piece of board on the bottom so I can add more stone under the mantel.  My husband cut the mantel for me out of an old branch that he found down at the river.  I thought it looked pretty cool.  I still need to make a stone floor for inside the fireplace.  I had one made but it ended up being too small so I need to start again.

Photobucket

Finally, below is a pic of a cobble stone effect that I tried to do out of paper clay.  Wasn't having very much luck with the stones wanting to stay on.  Might have to take this off and try again, but this is the look that I am going for.

Sorry, didn't have much to show this time.  Hope to have more for the next update!!  I am also planning on posting a wip soon on the dolls that I have been working on too!

The Bootique has been updated!!

The Halloween Queen's Castle Bootique has now been updated with awesome new Halloween Art!!  Click HERE to go on over and check it out!! 

This is my piece for the Bootique.  It is a vintage style "Night Owl" light!  I took a polyresin and glass candy dish and transformed it into night light.
Photobucket

I flipped the glass over and drilled a hole in the bottom on the dish so a light can be attached.  The picture below shows it lit up with a flicker bulb that is included.

The glass can easily be turned around and it can be used as a candy dish too. The owl head has been hand sculpted from paper clay.

Stands 12.5 inches tall and 6 inches wide.

It's Alive!

Here is Frankenkitty!  He has been chained up for your protection!  The weather has been just right and I have finally been able to bring him to life!!  Muwahaha!



Sorry about that!  As I posted before, he is hand sculpted from paper clay and stands with base around 8 inches tall.  He should hopefully be listed on Ebay tomorrow evening.  I'll update this post with the link as soon as he is! 
 
**Update 6/16/10** He is now listed on ebay!  Click HERE to go to auction!

His tail is even in the shape of a lightning bolt!

Thank you so much for looking!  I will be back soon with more pictures of what I have been working on!

Moore Work in Progress!

I wanted to share with you another project that I have just completed and will be listing on Ebay hopefully within the next couple of days!  It is my Frankenkitty sculpture that has been sitting on my work table for a while now.  I'm only going to show you a work in progress right now and will show you the finish piece when he is ready to list!  He is sculpted out of paper clay and stands about 7 inches tall.
Photobucket

Also, I wanted to update you on the Halloween Queens Bootique piece that I showed you a hint of in my last post.  The update for this month will be on the 15th!  So just in a few days you will be able to see that one too!!  It's a hoot!

Here are some trinket boxes that I am getting ready to work on soon.  I just got them primed and ready for adding clay and paint.

Photobucket

I'm even hoping to have some pics to show of the miniature witch room that I have been working on.  The fireplace has been slow going with all these other projects that I have been doing, but I hope to finish it sometime during the week or atleast have a good start on it.  I had recently purchased a how to book on making 1/12 scale polymer clay dolls and I will share with you my attempts at that also!haha
