So… when Jenny suggested March Hares as our first themed challenge at AJE Blog I quickly signed up to play along. New hare designs were hopping around in my mind immediately and I was going to take them in this new direction.
As so often happens for me, life finds ways to make things busier than I'd planned and I didn't get quite enough time to finish everything I had wanted to, but I do have a little peek behind the scenes for you…
A stamp of approval from a certain furry cat means a whole lot in my studio. Actually, my adorable little guy was
asking if telling me it was dinner time… which it was.
Most of yesterday I was busily making my new stamps. I started with a simple drawing of each pose…
Transfered to my stamp bases…
And then very carefully carved away the edges… I can't wait to use them in new beads!
I still have a bit more sculpting and refining to do with these new hare shapes, but I'm liking the direction so far and I'm looking forward to the finished beads coming next!
I hope you enjoyed the little tour of my latest studio happenings! Be sure to check out what everyone else has created for the March Hares Challenge below. Thanks so much for stopping by today and thank you to Jenny for an inspiring theme!
