ATCs and Using Polymer Clay


Before I had my twin boys four years ago I enjoyed sculpting fairies and mermaids and working with Polymer Clay. But once the twins came along I couldn't devote as much time to sculpting as I needed to improve, so my vintage altered art took over to satisfy my creative needs.
As I love working with clay I wanted to incorporate it into my work on occasion, so I produced a few ATCs and made little clay toadstools for my images to sit on and it seemed to work really well.

I adore creating these little works of art, just having the clay toadstool, I feel, really brings the piece alive.

I love the toadstools. They really do make the work come alive. What a clever idea.
How you find the time to do anything as the mother of twin boys is amazing to me!
