My Creative Space...
I'm playing along on with Kootoyoo again this week. Once again, I can't wait to stop by and check all the lovely creations...
I'm on a creative roll leading up to Christmas. Our Summery weather this week has lifted my mood. I adore this time of year. Sunshine = happy + creative.
I've been busy making a Driftwood Christmas Tree with Flotsam Angels for Kelly, my lovely framer. She's going to use it as the shops Christmas display. She wanted it to have a natural feel. I hope she likes it!
Making the tree I used the same technique I used making my Driftwood Fish. I threaded the pieces of driftwood along the metal rod and then bolted them into place. Each piece can still move around though. I then decided to drill holes in each branch so that I could tie each doll in place. I also made some small Driftwood God's Eyes to fill the branches and matched the colours I used in my dolls.
And Flotsam Pru is the angel on the top of the tree! I didn't mean this to happen I just felt the tree needed something on the top and I thought I'd be perfect. My sea sponge skirt fit perfectly over the wood.
P.S. If you're interested in stepping back into my older Christmas posts, stop by here, here, here & here.
I used my Tinsel Trading cellophane flowers on the above two dolls
I thought this branch looked like a reindeer. I added eyes
