Happy Friday!

blogphotos 002

This week has gone by sooooo fast! These tree stumps have taken longer to finish than I would have thought. But thick paper pulp can take a long time to dry. Though I did speed things along a little bit in the oven. I can’t say I’m super happy with the color this ended up being. Martha recommended a grey/brown to highlight the bumps but I thought it would look petrified…Made a much bigger one last night that will fit around a bigger plant. That will take forever to dry! I think I’ll put them outside today to get some sun and wind. I hope to have another craft night with Carmen to make some polymer clay mushrooms and a little owl for the hole in the stump. Maybe a bird or two to sit on the branches…Happy Crafting!!

I was amazed at reading that was actually made from paper pulp. Very impressive! I'm visiting from New Friend Friday, and I'm your newest follower. Loving your papercutting pieces!

Oh I love it. I'm not sure what I'd do with it but it is cute. I think it'll look great with all kinds of birds and flowers and things on and around it.
Take care and have a great day.

I do large paper mache projects and I think it is actually faster to do it in layers. Cause the dry layers seem to help the top layer dry up faster because the moisture on the inside doesn't have to leach out through the upper layers.

I usually put them in front of a fan that I let blow constantly too (much to my husbands annoyance)...

This is cool - I have to find more time...geesh... :)
