leopard décor orbs
January 11, 2011 § 8 Comments
O.T. and I have short nightly reviews of my projects here. He had little insight on yesterday’s leopard lunch bag luminaries other than “It’s okay, just not up to your caliber”. It’s interesting to be told what isn’t my caliber, which leaves me to wonder what is. Where is potato-stamping ranked along my yardstick of creativity? I thought it through and know he isn’t altogether right. Sure potato-stamping is a rudimentary craft, but it doesn’t mean the method will produce elementary results. Not always. Not if I can help it.
At the same time as I made the leopard luminaries, I fashioned these décor orbs using the same leopard potato stamps that have been well exploited on this blog for the past two posts (now make it three).
There’s little to this project other than said stamps (if you’re just tuning in, you can see me make leopard potato stamps on a previous post here), styrofoam balls, acrylic paints, and some glossy podge.
I really wanted to leopardize a pair of canvas shoes when I realized I don’t own canvas shoes to begin with! Darn, that would’ve been the best of the series, had the idea materialized. I would love to see if any of you have leopardized any objects from home. But alas, for me, this shall be the last time my lovely leopard makes its impression. It’s been three days. Potato stamps meet compost. Compost, potato stamps.
