You should have arrived here from Jennifer Ingle's Blog. If you didn't, and want to start at the beginning of the hop go to the Creative Paperclay® blog HERE! Did you hear there is bog candy!

We have blog candy!!! All you have to do is leave a comment and become a follower of all the blogs on our hop and you are entered! The winners will be posted on Feb 5th on both the Creative Paperclay® and Amazing Mold Putty Blogs. (U.S. only, sorry)

Now I am excited to share my LOVE CAST IN CLAY project!



Using both Creative Paperclay® and Amazing Mold Putty I have created a Valentine wall ornament. 


First, I found this awesome bird that would make a great mold... wrapped him with Amazing Mold Putty and let it set about an hour, Then filled the mold with Creative Paperclay® and let it set for a couple of days. 
 

I then used this great paper mold and filled it with Creative Paperclay® (I knew wouldn't be using all the pieces for this project, I love having extras around).









Finally, I hand molded roses from Creative Paperclay®. Starting with the first petal wrap it tightly to create the center of the rose. To make a petal take a small ball of paper clay and press very thin, then wrap around the base. Keep adding petals until there are enough for a full rose. Now wait.... let everything dry completly. It may take a couple of days.



The frame for my assemblage is an over sized cookie cutter. Sand both inside and out so the glue would adhere to the metal easily. Glue sheet music to the outside of the cookie cutter and text from an old book to the inside. Punch holes with Crop-a-dile for hanging, the heart is hanging on its side (punch the holes accordingly).


Printed an image 8 x 11, I used one from Vintage Image Craft use matte photo paper and then mount on chipboard to make it stiff. Fussy cut the image. Glue a toothpick to the back of the arrow in the heart to reinforce it.

    


   


 Paint all the Creative Paperclay® pieces and add Stickles when they dry.

 
 
 
Glue fiber trim to the out side of the frame. Add the ribbon for hanging, use buttons to hold the fabric ribbon in place on the inside and outside of the frame.


Attach the Victorian Lady to the back of the frame (her dress will hang longer than the frame.) Glue the Creative Paperclay® ribbon to the front of the frame. Arrange the bird and roses inside, add feathers and artificial leaves as desired.
