Clay Crowns

 Last weekend I had one of my art group meetings. This is what we created. Two of the members tag teamed to teach us, Donna J. & Jeanne showed us clay can be fun!
 This one I copied the decorating of one that Jeanne had done. I loved the colors of the alcohol inks used and the little chip board circle frame is from Maya Road. I added stickles to it and a bird photo behind the frame. Filled the frame in with glossy accents.
 You probably can not tell but I covered some of the dots with triple thick glossy sealer to give them some more dimension. I also included some stickles on some of the smaller dots.
 This one has a transfer on it of children. Did not know you could transfer toner/laser copies with water but you can. Very easy too! I added some detail to the inside of this crown on the peaks.
 This one is very brightly colored with the alcohol inks. Love the star brads Jeanne told me about at Hobby Lobby! Thanks Jeanne!!
 I added stickles to the dots on this one. It's colored with Red Pepper alcohol ink.
Jeanne and Donna had some crowns that they had sewn on. Cool idea! I watched Jeanne drill the holes in this crown for me so I could add the wire X's. Love this look!

It was great to play with a medium that I don't use very often. Learned several things about the medium plus I loved the bright colors you get with the alcohol inks.
