Today, I am sharing a super fun project that was started a few weeks ago, that I finally finished up. :)
Last September, I attended the 'Art Is You' retreat in Petaluma, CA. I had SO much fun and am saving my pennies so I can attend another 'Art Is You' retreat in the future.
One of the classes I attended with taught by the incredible Laurie Mika, who is a fabulous clay artist. She is responsible for my new found love for creating with clay. I had never used clay as an art form before my class, but I now have added it to my list of creative play options.
(Here's a peak at the clay project I created during the class)
Using the techniques Laurie taught us in class, I stamped, painted, and embellished my inchie clay squares. I knew I wanted to create a mosaic with them after they were done, but wasn't sure on the end result.
The base for my mosaic wall hanging was a pre-painted wooden wall hanging I bought from Michaels. I didn't care for the pre-painted color, but that was easily changed with a coat of paint. (I used PaperArtsy Fresco Paints and Crackle Glaze for my base).
Instead of a basic mosaic piece, I painted a few Amazing Alterable pieces from Paper Whimsy, using the same PaperArtsy Fresco paints and glued them to the mosaic center.
This now is proudly displayed on my bedroom wall! I can't wait to create another clay project! What should I create next? ;)
As always, thank you for stopping by! Have a great week!
