"If you know exactly what you are going to do, what is the point of doing it?"
On the surface this may sound a bit slap dash, but it suits me as it is how I think. I think of a little idea then keep it in my mind on and off for a while, refining it or working out how I will do it. But I can never foresee exactly how something will be, ever. I don't suppose many people can. I think it is a good thing to apply to teaching as well-as in how children see the world. They are always experimenting and testing ideas and this is what the quote means to me too. Having fun with the process.
Anyway, miss Bird Feet is held onto the box with two pieces of bent wire which are held in place with blu tac! Mr Skelly is her companion for the evening-he is loosely held up on a wobbly wire stand. The pig is just around. It is waiting to be finished-but just sits in the cat's toy box. So at least it is in a photo shoot now!
This is the plastic fusion fun part-a great tutorial from Vanessa at A Fanciful Twist Visit her for details and beautiful things made with the fused plastic. You just iron eight layers of plastic bag plastic between two sheets of grease proof paper and, hey presto, you have interestingly textured plastic fabric, which can then be used to make other things. Vanessa makes gift bags. I am thinking of making a doll/doll dress. I added fusible fibres to one side of mine and glitter to the other as an experiment. The fibres just fused to themselves not the bags but the glitter worked really well!
