Well …. sometime technology is a real pain in my squirrel tail. I used a “real camera” instead of my iPhone to take your tutorial pictures this week hoping that since we’re now back to “full tutorials” that they would be awesome pics. Somehow my SD card became “corrupted” and I have lost everything on it, save for 4 pictures … of course of the END of the project! ARG! *Insert horrible frustrating sounds here* So … this being said today’s “tutorial” sadly will be more of a non-picture commentary on the project. I cried over this problem this morning, pulled myself together and then took a deep breath. So instead of a tutorial, today you get a “what-atorial” … my code name for “what just happened to my tutorial pictures?” Deep breath …. and moving on …
The winner of Book 7: Woodland Creatures has been chosen and announced! Congratulations to the winner, Marie-Andree. If you are the winner, please remember you have 3 days to contact me, or a new winner will be chosen.
Because of the aforementioned disaster that took place when making my Mrs. Squirrel, I will be giving you some tips to help you through the tutorial that is featured in Christi’s book, beginning on page 10.
As I have been doing, you will see that my squirrel looks different from Christi’s in many ways. I would wager to say it is more “me” than Christi. Most noticeably, my squirrel has an obvious lack of mixed media and beaded additions and focuses more on clay sculpture; in addition to that whimsical and playful look that I love. I have not decided whether or not I will antique this little cutie (she’s about 3″ tall, so she’s hardly “little”). I kind of like her just as she is … what do you think?
Here’s some tips to help you with your little squirrel creation in this week’s “What-atorial”:
Well, I was able to salvage a few of the pictures off my SD card. Alas, they were all at the very end of my process. Here’s a few notes on them though…
For this week’s project you can create either a squirrel (page 10) or a fox (page 25). What are you going to create? Make sure you link up all your projects that you have made as we have journeyed together, right here on my website. And, for those of you who are linking up your work on Pinterest, please remember to add your NAME in the description of your project and don’t forget to REPIN other people’s hard work to your own pinterest boards.
