Here’s my entry for the PCAGOE February challenge. I use Kato PolyClay for all of my work and this piece is not an exception. I embellished the white heart with a pink flower cane of mine and a Swarovski crystal among a threesome of flowers.
This is my first challenge entry of any kind, so I’m a little nervous. I don’t know why, I know I don’t have a chance of winning with all the other great entries for this month that have been posted. The last time I checked, we had over 26 entries for this month’s contest. That’s the most the guild has ever had in a month. It’s great that we are having more participants, as the past few months have been iffy with only a few people entering and almost didn’t hold one for January.
If you would like to see all the wonderful entries this month, go to our website tomorrow when the challenge begins. You will be able to vote on your favorite entry and be entered yourself to win a prize just for voting 🙂 Here’s the web addy : http://www.pcagoe.com
I worked really hard on this one, it was my first inro, and I wanted it to be perfect (of course). It took me about 3 days to get it done. I really took my time on it, which really makes a difference when trying something for the first time. Rushing will only produce rushed looking work.You can tell when someone just throws something together for the sake of creating, it’s sloppy and unfinished looking. That is something I can’t do, I will not show anything that I don’t like myself, but I think that’s more the inner critic than anything else.
I’m working on another one too. Of course it’s not going exactly like the other did, but it’s coming along nicely. It’s sort of the same style as the first, just slightly different and is copper and black. I should be done with it this week.
While you’re waiting, here’s the pic of the first one :
It’s available for sale on Etsy or you can contact me.
