"It's A Girl!"


Despite the pink wonderfulness of my craft room, it has a distinctively Man Cave attitude being that all of the characters I create are of the male persuasion. With the never ending holiday parties in the making, and the ever present quest for True Love, I decided it was time to insert some female influence.


Intimidation is precisely what I felt at the thought of creating a girl character. Why? Because she doesn't wear pants that only require striped pipe stems! My own Paper Clay tutorial inadvertently provided the answer. A rope of clay around the bottom of the figure, pull clay back towards body.


Oh My Gosh! I am tickled PINK!  A girl character to join in the fun.  Her little jumper is just too cute!


Hmmmmm..... There may be a period of adjustment needed. This little fella doesn't quite know what to think.


Joy. Sheer Joy is the blessing I feel that I have a such a place as a craft room where the characters of my imagination can come forth, and I am most grateful to have those of you who happen here and allow me to share such things.


The wonderful pattern that is covering my "E" is  from the vintage wrapping paper seen in the first photo. I used my pinking scissors to cut the white from the pink. The white portion was used to cover all of the edges of the letter. Oh! And who is that handsome Scottie seen in the background?


He is a Poorbaby Payday Pooch who has come to reassert the male majority!

She is adorable, Elizabeth! I love your "E", too! It sounds to me like the Little Rascals with a "No Girls Allowed Sign" hanging out of the clubhouse. : )

Maybe it's the snowman head she has clutched in her hand that has him worried? LOL! She is too adorable with her little puppy dog skirt & her little spit curl. She definately has her cute on!....Patti M : )

Hi Elizabeth,
I think every room needs a bit of femininity and your little girlie is sure to make her presence known. The fellas will have to move over!
You are so amazingly talented. I love your use of color, design and imagination.
Have a sweet remainder of the week and thank you so much for stopping by and leaving me your kind comment.
Smiles,
Carolynn xoxo

Hello Elizabeth, I am very interested in learning more about paper clay a ready to get my hands messy. I just became a mutual follower with Vintage Betty and she gave me your blog address. She said that she had learned so much from you and that you are tops :) So here I am, your newest follower.
I'm a wife, mother and grandma . . . three years into retirement.
I love almost anything creative and artsy. I also sing and play guitar with a great group that plays at nursing homes, farmers markets, the county fair and festivals. Life is good . . . but I like to pack as much into it as I can. There's no moss growing under the feet of this rolling stone :)
At the moment I am having a Give-Away, please stop by and enter.
Have a great week. Your newest blogging sister, Connie :)

Lynn said...

omg!!! What a wonderful treat waiting for me when I clicked on your blog around 3am! Poor Pebbles has had me up every hour on the hour since 11:30 last nigh. She got tired out using her doggie wheel chair last evening. She is doing really good at moving around in it but she is 14 years old or she may be mad that we have her sleeping in a baby play bassinet type thing now instead of our bed on her Daddy's side. Any how, love the new little girl and the little boy is too cute. Wonderful Scottie find, reminds me of your favorite cottage to visits furbabies.
Have a wonderful night and thanks for always putting a smile on my face when I visit.
Hugs,
Lynn

She is wonderful. It does look like the the little Valentine guy is checking her out. I hope we see more little girls in your cast of characters.Thank you for sharing your imagination with us-I love coming over here for inspiration.

HollyC said...

She is just adorable, Elizabeth! I find that I mostly make boy characters too. I have started making a mental note to add more girls to the menagerie and your little girl fits the bill. I will have to try my hand at making her. Right now I am slowly working on Leprechaun Percy from your collection and I am almost finished with your leprechaun. He is so excited to be coming your way soon :) Have a wonderful day, Holly
