clean stuido?

"Cindel"

Today I was going to clean my messy studio, but I just did not know where to start so I made up this little Halloween paper doll for Tammie Moores swap, I had so much fun! this is my first paper doll ever, I wanted to use all fabric for her clothing but I made myself us at least half paper. I had not a clue how to go about make a doll I even sent out a email plea for help to Holly but I was in the need to instant gratification so I went on a web search and I found Hazelruthes really cool blog with all the paper doll info a girl could need and I used this template for my doll.

Cindel even has a magic wand ! I glued down paper stars and glitter inside of her cloth cape. I still have to make 2 more :)

Then I started to clean again ( I think it lasted about 3 minuets) I started to trash things then I found I had some really cool scraps on my desk so I started to make some atc's

"bashful"
(this is my favorite I will use this in a larger piece .)



"ART life"

(this is all fabric)

This set was made for a fabric atc swap group


Then before you know it I lit my candle and started burning stuff...

"faith and justification" these were made for a fall atc swap group, I torched the felt and then I blister the top with a flame to reveal the paper fragment.

a few more burnt atcs

so there you have it my day... nothing got clean but I did have some fun :)
oh well, there is always tomorrow.

I love hearing how you make the pieces. You may not have cleaned, but you did use up some bits. That's good.
