paper clay and gold foil with fingernail designs from dollar store

Oh this was alot of fun adding mini beads, sparkles , gold foil flakes from tiny fingernail art designs that came in their own cute little bottles …

nail-art-glitterNOW that I have your attention let me say how cool these little bottles are and you can make them over into necklaces also. but first I am using the pretty fillers in my art……. and here’s my newest and prettiest necklaces…. I need more chains.    Cut your  paper clay into squares,  add tiny eye hooks or homemade pin,    let air dry,  then paint sky blue, acrylic paint let dry , add glitters and nail art then

I got so into making these that all the details and additions started coming to me and I just had to make them so I went for days finding packages and things to use as molds, and just dove into it… keys leaves, butterfly’s, I even made my own roses buy pinching and sculpting the paper clay… then made some red velvet looking roses, and well that’s a whole NEW post… So a little by little I”ll add on….. still feeling bad can’t seem to shake this cold, week 2…..
