Some black paint on the wood ladybug body sections. Another coat of the red paint on the ladybug rocks. Another coat of red on the wings of the wood ladybugs, and as you can probably tell from the picture, I’ve carved out another wood ladybug shape. I have three big magnets, so there is a ladybug shape for each magnet now. I’ve got another ladybug figure in the works and this one will be a girl, so far she is able to stand upright without any support. I guess I got the balance just right. I have some bits of pretty lace that I’ll use to make her a little skirt. I decided the boy one needed a friend.This paper-mache’ winter sweater is now ready for the matte medium and the gesso! I’ll paint this one a dark blue and embellish it with white iridescent snowflake sequins and silver seed beads.
So, there you go! Some of the various ladybug projects are moving along and another paper-mache’ winter sweater is closer to being finished. I’ll be posting tutorials for the ladybug projects as I finish each of them. None of them are very difficult to make, they just take some time to do, mainly drying time for paint and glue. All the rain we’ve been having does not help things to dry as fast as I would like, but at least it wasn’t snow, at least not yet. Hope not, don’t really need to see snow up close and personal, especially since I saw yesterday morning that my bluebirds already have a new batch of babies and they have already made their first venture outside of their house! Can you believe it?! I guess the parent bluebirds have decided that Spring has sprung, or at least enough to be able to find enough bugs to feed the new babies. I want to say, “Hello!” to my new followers! I’ve been looking at your blogs and you are some very clever and creative folks! Thank you to all my followers for looking at my blog!
