On to new things

I created some new beads with a Kaleidoscope Cane. I'm not a big fan of them because I know I didn't give my best. I feel very impatient with my self at the moment because I get bored so fast with a "theme" and move on to the next very quickly before getting to know a technique properly. Already I lost interest in Kaleidscopes und have a new idea in my head. Something completely different. *grinning*

But it's not that bad. I'm not beating my self up over it. I mean, I'm still a baby when it comes to polymer clay and have so much to learn. I guess that's why I'm jumping from one thing to the next so fast.

I am totally exhausted and wishing for Holidays, for Sun and Sand, for time-out! Good thing that as of tomorrow I finally have 6 days off work!

My latest Projects include trying out Kaleidoscope canes. Unfortunatley I forgot to take pictures of the canes and used them all up for the beads (they were small canes). I really liked working on the kaleidoscope patterns and I am going to venture into this a bit more, for sure. I already have new material to use on my clay-table and as soon as I have some new energy, that is where you'll find me! :-)

I especially like using black+white with the red. I already have new ideas to use the black+white in combination with other colours.

On the weekend I also started working on some flower lentil beads. I am trying to use up some old canes to make space for new ones so I decided to try these patterns. Half of them still need sanding, but because both of my wrists hurt again from working so much (outside of home) I am forced to take a break for a bit. That kinda sucks. But here's a sneak peak of how the finished ones look!

Little bit of Glam

I bought my first two Embossing Powders at the Christmasmarket and experimented with it in the last couple of weeks. I really like the results, they look glamorous. Surely I will use embossing powder more often in the Future. I hope to get my hands on some more colours very soon!

Foil Beads

It was a lot of fun making these beads. It was a bit easier on the wrist because they didn't need so much sanding, thank goodness! I liked playing with the colours and seeing the end product all shiny and sparkling. I'm really happy with the results.
