I had so much fun this weekend, after finally getting my tax stuff together and dropping it in my accountant's lap at 9:05 a.m. Friday, I was free as a bird until this morning and was determined to let my creativity loose and play with my clay all weekend.
I recently received some encouragement to enter the International Polymer Clay Association's 2010 "Progress and Possibilities" event, and after much debate with myself and the extra encouragement of a few of my good PCAGOE friends, I have decided to go for it. I am planning to enter 2 necklaces and a decorative item, but they have to be submitted by April 16th! Yikes!
I sat down with a gallon of sweet iced tea, my drug of choice for energy and prepared to just "let go". I was in a really good frame of mind and the ideas just started coming one after another.
I can do a lot with a little clay. I never throw away the smallest scrap. It gets used somehow, and these little tube beads were the result of playing around with a tiny scrap and some new rubber stamps. I love this little nubby impression.
Now I'm not saying these will end up in any of my entries, but I had a ton of fun making them. And for some reason, they look like pasta to me, so I dubbed them "Polymer Pasta."
