Adjusting Sails

Here is a completed paper mache sailing ship with fabric sails. Up-cycled cereal box, paper bags, newspaper & denim; string, dowels, glue, embroidery & acrylic paint. I will be making more of these. So inspiring to try new techniques as this is based on a pattern/design by my idol, artist Ann Wood. Having one of those weeks…wish it was life size so I could sail away.

3 Flying Pigs

Here’s a recent custom order for 3 large Papier-Mache Flying Pigs. My only instructions were “no yellow.”  I think they turned out super cute and now they’ve flown off to live in a dental office in Connecticut. How fun!

All of my papier-mache pieces are made from up-cycled newspaper, cardboard, cereal boxes, etc; recycled masking tape, wheat paste, paint, re-purposed jewelry pieces, charms, buttons, found ephemera, magic & love.

new crafties update

hello lovely people….the blogging really got away from me!

i have been crafting up a storm & and i guess if i had better time management

i could accomplish both blogging AND crafting…but sometimes i get so obsessed with a project

and/or don’t really feel like i have anything interesting/new/clever to show and say here…that i lose spirit.

but in my many years on the planet…the only thing that inspires me and generates MORE creativity is to JUST DO IT!

GENERATE IT EVERY DAY.

it’s really hard sometimes,  i know {and there’s nothing wrong with taking a day off here & there}

but let’s make a promise to our creative selves…to…DO SOMETHING CREATIVE EVERY DAY.

okay…that’s outta the way {i feel so much better}

here’s some goings-on from the last few weeks…

 

new paper mache creations {available in the shop}

and have gotten lots of treasury features on etsy…

so i have been pretty productive…just waiting for the valentine~themed items to start selling!

i wish you a happy belated new year & thank you dear fans for reading and for diggin’ OliveLoaf Design
