Last year, I took Deryn Mentock's online class called, "The Merry Men of Winter." I highly recommend it. Lots of fun, lots of ideas and she provides ample flexibility in how you use your snowmen. So, here I am a year later, still wanting to make snowmen with Paper Clay, salt shakers, and lots of embelllishments. I've been collecting here and there over the past year.
This year, I've added some wire arms and that allows me to add props to the snowperson. The one above was done for a neighbor who gave me a tin full of buttons. She loves to go to yard sales, flea markets, Good Will stores and so forth so I made her a snowwoman who has just returned from a "shopping" trip.
Deryn also makes ornaments using vintage Christmas light bulbs, too. This wasn't vintage but a chandelier bulb colored with alcohol inks. Looks vintage. Good enough for me!
This last piece here was made using a snowman bead that my friend, Cheri, gave me (and about 6 others). I wanted to wear one somehow. So I pulled through my stash of stuff, found a broken rosary chain that I have no idea where it originated and started putting things together. Now, I don't take using a rosary lightly. It was broken and I feel like I was giving it a new life as a piece that will be loved.
