Vintage Journey-Guest Designer-X Marks the Spot Assemblage

Hello Makers!

I am so excited to be a Guest Designer for Vintage Journey for July; the theme is "All Squared Up". My make is an assemblage piece I call "X Marks the Spot". Wanna know how I turned a simple Thrift store frame into an art piece, visit the Vintage Journey for the detailed stepouts

For this project I used a square Thrift store picture frame from my stash. Actually the square frame inspired my piece. The frame had layered squares, so I wanted something to contrast the squares, and I wanted to use another shape. I used a circle and inside the square and inside the circle, well who knows, perhaps a mystery.

Makin's Clay DT Project - Decorative Bowls

Hello Makers!

Today I bring you my Makin's Clay® Design Team project. I have made small decorative bowls. These bowls can be used to store small non-edible objects, like rings or simply use a decorative pieces to accent your home. It also makes a great gift for any occasion.  The really nice about polymer clay is it's flexibility; giving you endless possibilities for surface design. You can make your own markings, or us a stamp or anything with texture really. To learn how to make these fun bowls visit the Makin's Clay®  Blog.
