Clay Ballerina

Hi guys, just popping by with a project I've been making this week, Tegans Birthday was on Wednesday and she had a little party, it was such fun to see her enjoying her new pressies etc and her cake, I took some piccies which i will make into a layout later,
anyway this I made for her bedroom door while I had some free time lol,

It's the first model I've made using Fimo clay so don't look to close lol, I used Fimo soft and it was a little too soft at times but other wise I was quite pleased with it,
the MDF frame I painted with Gesso then added cheesecloth and used a crafters workshop stencil with grunge paste for a little added texture and interest,
the wooden flower is by kaisercraft and I painted it with gesso then added a script stamp from Stempelglede on the top when dry,
the air dry clay butterfly is from a Martha Stewart mould, to finish off I used some of the beautiful paper flowers from Sweet Lilac and a couple of brk hearts from Live and Love crafts,

Tegan is always dancing either ballet style or street dancing style, so funny to see her do a combo of both at times, not bad for a three year old who's never been to dancing lessons he he,

hugs Liz xx
