Getting Inspired by artwork

I have entered this challenge before, and somehow I keep making it a goal but I don't often achieve it! So this month I decided I really needed to, and I got really inspired by the muted color palette and organic shapes in the artwork. Here is the palette I made from the art:

I used Souffle clay in Key Lime for the base, which would provide a nice matte surface to play against the foiled clay I appliqu├ęd on top. I also used a dye ink pad and my metal stamp tools to create background texture and color in the dark green prior to laying on the foiled pieces of clay.

I foiled my clay with Jones Tones and Lisa Pavelka foils- using Premo Bronze as the base clay color so that it would be a nice dark "antique" brown where ever it peeks through the foil.

Then I raided my *extensive* bead stash for some natural and glass beads that would go with my theme, and finally used Art Wire in Gunmetal (which is actually an antique gold color) to create a bead linked chain.

This is the result!

Polymer Clay Shrine and Beads project ideas from the PCTV design team

Pat created this using the Large wing mold, butterfly 2 part mold, and mini flower plunger cutters. All you need is a base and Pat frequently uses little pieces of wood for that. Then just make your polymer clay pieces and glue them on using a strong glue such as Weldbond.

Cory created this bead set using the Border Cutters and Round floral stamps. Remember to always make the backs of your pieces look nice, especially jewelry! To make these beads you just need to create a basic shape, then cut strips using the border cutters and lay them on in different colors. So easy and fun!

Isn't this beautiful! We just love Deepa's sense of color. She used our Round Floral Stamp set and Fancy Scallop border cutters to create this design.

There are so many ways to use your polymer clay tools. Thanks Deepa!

Adding words and quotes to polymer clay was never so easy to do

I love adding inspiring words and quotes to my artwork but its hard to get stamped letters to be straight. I have the perfect tip to help with that so you can have words that are straight and not all over the place.
