WIP progress 1218

Well I've managed to knock off two WIPs on my list of 21.   Kelly talked about the temari balls that we started last month and I managed to finish mine up for her post earlier this week.  You can read about our adventure into this new intricate craft here.  I also managed to knock out the polymer clay ornament that I had started at our december craft day.  I just took a bunch of coils and covered a square glass ornament I had on hand.  Here's the before picture.

I really liked the ornament style but I wasn't happy with the color selection that I had picked, specifically the white.  So my solution was to paint the entire thing in a pearlescent white, and I added a cute little bow.  I love how the color turned out.  I think it's going to look like a present hanging from my tree next year.

You can still see the colors of the clay underneath but they aren't as jarring against the white.  What do you think?  I love when I can salvage a bad craft into something that I really love.  Just goes to show you shouldn't give up if you hit a little speed bump in your crafting process.  Plus it makes a really adorable necklace for Sadie too.

Here's my updated WIP list and since I've finished two I get to start a fun new project.  I'm thinking of a  Valentine's day theme.
