About Me

My photo
IMAGINATION IS THE EYE OF THE SOUL Joseph Joubert. I am a mother of four...I still remember the smile that refused to go away for weeks after our daughters birth. To have a little girl appear after three sons seemed such a miracle. I have always enjoyed My Doll World, sharing it with Lara when she was little. Today I design knitted outfits for miniature dolls and enjoy every minute of it. The fact that the outfits are removable is what makes it so special for me. Using ever finer threads has opened so many MINIATURE DESIGN opportunities.

Polymer Clay and Paper Flowers

I have been playing with Polymer Clay all day to get into the swing of what I have to teach at our convention. So the next few posts will show some of the things I have made over the years using flowers as decoration...I find even when I doodle .....
I always draw flowers.

My flowers are not true to life having more fantasy in their creation, or should I say artistic license.

Here is a crib I made in fimo, it was rather difficult as the fimo kept on bubbling on the larger sections...
The flowers were definitely the fun part.
I have the distinct feeling the teddies like their crib too!

CLICK ON the photograph to enlarge it!

The Teddies were made by a lady here in Cape Town but I have clean forgotten where I put their labels.

Yesterday at our guild, I learned how to make a mold in silicone so using a finding of a leaf, I made a mold.

Well the Gypsy ladies of my imagination have had a lot of fun making garlands to decorate their dresses.
Here a leaf there a leaf everywhere a leaf  leaf!!!
Pictures on the next post, they are still in the oven....
Way too hot at the moment!!!

  5. Sharon, I have long admired your darling little cradle from the photo in your header. Amazing to think that you have made it from clay. I thought for sure that it was a wonderful vintage item that you had. I LOVE the flowers applied to it! The bears are so adorable too!!

  6. Los ositos son preciosos y esa cama adornada con esas fantasticas flores queda genial.
