Friesen Fridays - Book 3 Under the Sea Review

 YAY! It’s Friesen Friday and in honor of that … it’s party time! Not just any party mind you … an underwater, under the sea party!

Polymer Clay Princess, Christi FriesenAs with every Friday, we’re about to talk about Christi Friesen again … I wonder if after 52 weeks she’s going to get tired of us talking about her every week.  Maybe she’ll stop by and let us know how she feels about this.

I’m really excited about this month.  Why? Because I absolutely LOVE this book and every single project in it.  Of course, I love the ocean, sea, and everything in it … especially when it’s for dinner.  Mmmm!

I’ve received some emails lately from several people in the group that feel that they are not “qualified” to work with polymer clay.  Qualified, what do you mean, you’re not qualified?  All you MUST have to do these projects are a hunk of polymer clay, your hands, & Christi’s Book.  Please remember that the ideas, exploration, and tutorials behind the Friesen Project are to get you out of your current element!  It’s to get YOU claying again.  Maybe you’ll learn a new technique or find something you really love!

PLEASE REMEMBER: If you have not yet signed up to receive the polymer clay & Friesen Project emails, please do so now.  This will ensure that no matter what you are doing, you never miss anything! Now let’s go diving … UNDER THE SEA!

CF Sculpture Series Book 2:

Welcome to the Jungle

YAY! It’s Friesen Friday!

Jungle Book CoverDo you know what this means?  This means we’re about to talk about Christi Friesen once again.  Oh how I love to talk of Christi Friesen, Christi Friesen books, and her awesome style!  Ok, well we’re not really going to talk about her….but we are definitely going to talk about her next book in the Beyond Sculpture series: “Welcome to the Jungle.”

Do you ever feel like you live in the Jungle?  Sometimes I feel like this … especially yesterday when I found and had to squish 3 stink bugs (gross).  Life can often be a jungle … but have you ever noticed that things that are healthy and strong come from a jungle?  The ideas, exploration, and tutorials behind the Friesen Project are to get you out of your current element, learn a new technique, and to take a transformative journey into the polymer clay world. For many artists, they have yet to embrace the idea of combined elements and mixed media that can be used to enhance our designs.

PLEASE REMEMBER: If you have not yet signed up to receive the polymer clay & Friesen Project emails, please do so now.  This will ensure that no matter what you are doing, you never miss anything!  Now … let’s get JUNGLE-FIED!
