Have you ever just taken bits and pieces from unfinished projects, or that you had rejected for some reason, and combined them into something totally different than your original intention? If so, I'd love to hear about your results!
I had a santa head with a too-narrow face, some cold porcelain hands that had shrunk more than 30% when they dried, a weirdly shaped mug, a domed shape, and several other bits and pieces that had been intended for four different projects.
I had been planning to finish the humpty dumpty character that I had started, when I began wondering what it would look like if I added these leftover parts to my humpty dumpty body. Fortunately, he was only a body with two legs. I hadn't added arms or facial features to him yet.
I can picture this roly-poly character sitting on a rock/hill/mushroom, a mug of ale in one hand... Viola! I think I have a leprechaun or dwarf going on here, what do you think? I wonder if I should actually make this franken-dwarf, or elfen-stein with these bits and pieces, or just keep making my humpty dumpty character?
It would be fun to have a bits and pieces challenge, or a swap of some sort, don't you think?
OH! Before I forget, I want to direct your attention to the button on the side bar titled My First Giveaway!
Right now I'm going to go make some arms for those little hands and see what I come up with.
Thanks for dropping by, I'll see you later.
