Since I do scrapbook - and mostly use paper products - creating embellishments made out of Creative Paperclay is really fun for me! Each piece turns out different because of the papers and products I end up using! I don't like things to look like something else I have made - even though I end up using the same type of things on each project! Each turns out different because of the products!
So, I have some tips for you - things that are helping me out - I figured they might help a few of you out as well!
- Find a place where you can keep all of your ideas - such as a notebook or sketchbook! This way, as you are looking at things, or thinking about things you want to create, you can keep the information in one place!
- Sketch the idea out on a sheet of paper, sketch pad, or design sheet! What do you want the piece to look like when it is finished? What supplies do you have for it - what do you need for it? Do you have a container (or something) you can put it in while you are creating?
- Look back at the amazing ideas on this blog, on other blogs, Google "Creative Paperclay" and check out the images there, or even look on Pinterest for more ideas!
- Lastly - don't be afraid of playing with ideas! Some of the favorite things I have done, have been done by taking the time to write things as to what I want to do, with it sketched out if possible!
