Postcard Competition

Last year i entered a free Postcard competition run by St Cuthberts Mill who make Saunders Waterford watercolour paper. On Saturday a parcel arrived for me and this was in it:

I got runners up! and won the block of paper in the pic!!!! This competition runs every other year and last time i got runners up too. I am so happy that my paintings were thought of as good, it gives me such a lift :)

Lil' Brown Dragon

At long last i have been able to sit down in the craft room and work on something for myself. Don't get me wrong i do enjoy making things for my shops, but in the run up to Christmas it was all i was doing and its nice to do something for different for a change :)

Here he is, 2 inches high made from Fimo, and my first time ever using a tinfoil armature. However its apparent i did not compact the tinfoil enough as underneath he has a spilt where the air inside has expanded in the cooking process, but its not noticeable when he's sitting on my desk.
I used a tutorial by the very talented Becca Golins.
Penny for size reference.
