The Wood Ladybugs are almost done!

20190318_051311 (4)They just need their spots, the pupils in their eyes, and their antennas. I’m going to do their antennas like my ladybug rock’s ones, dots back over their backs. Sharky is ready for his teeth.  I put another coat of white on Ladybug Boy and Girl’s “eyes”. Ladybug Boy and Ladybug Girl, themselves, are both ready to have their eye sockets made and for the matte medium and the gesso now, YEAH!!!!20190318_051331 (2)Some more paper-mache’ Easter eggs in the works. These are plastic “Legg’s” eggs, that I have been saving. Another one of the paper-mache’ winter sweaters is ready to embellish, the red one. I think I’ll put a Christmas tree on this one. And another sweater is ready for the matte medium and the gesso. This one I experimented on, I wrapped it with the floral tape, it actually wasn’t super hard to do and it helped to make a smoother surface.20190318_051341 (3)These two shapes, up front, are going to be backup ladybugs for the magnets, just in case the wood ones are too heavy. And if I don’t use them for that, I’m working on a pincushion that looks like a flower, with the base part being a tuna can. They can hang out on the flower and look like they are hunting aphids. I haven’t decided yet if I want to crochet the yellow flower middle or make it like from fleece or felt. I’m still in the design stage with the flower.

So, there you go! Some things almost done, some things closer to being done, and some things in the works and in the design stage. I’m still pondering how to do the Hawaiian shirt ornaments, I want them to have actual realistic looking collars and button bands down their fronts. The collars are the part I’m still ruminating on. I’m thinking of using watercolor paper cut and shaped like a collar and then glued to the shirt shape. Then I’ll lightly paper-mache’ it to lock the “collar” in place. It is a creative problem to solve! So. I hope you all have a SUPER GREAT DAY!!!! HAPPY LADYBUG MAKING!!!! HAPPY CREATIVE PROBLEM SOLVING!!!! HAPPY CRAFTING!!!!!

    1. I’m working on the pictures that I’ll use for the how-to-do’s on the original challenge post. And I’m probably going to do an actual tutorial for painting the ladybug rocks from start to finish. I’m preparing the rocks that I’m going to use. I’ve got the felt pieces cut out for the ladybug feltie, I just have to sew them together and stuff it. I’ve got all the materials gathered for doing the cross stitch ladybug picture, I just have to settle on the design. So, things are moving along! Thank you for your very nice comment! Have a SUPER rest of this day!
