A "Model" day!

I was thrilled to see that
is to add a handmade clay embellishment
to your project! 
To say that this was a real challenge is understating it!
I had to dig deep and consider my PI products to come up with something I felt would be acceptable and POSTABLE!
I am very particular what I put on my blog.  I have to truly be proud of the project.
I think this is pretty cool...
I used Fima clay to make clouds by rolling the clay out very thin, and then cutting around my Papertrey Ink "Clouds" die with an X-acto blade.
Peeling off and laying them on foil, I baked them for 30 min at 225, watching the whole time to be sure they didn't burn or yellow. I had made some Lo Mein noodles years ago, and the slight brown tint worked for those...but not so much for clouds.
They didn't come out perfectly white. They had picked up some teensy pieces of glitter and dust from my scrap table, and the few little lines from rolling them out with a glue bottle! LOL!
But all in all, not bad. They still resemble clouds...and IRL you can see that they are two seperate clouds, one popped up higher and thicker than the other.
The sentiment is from PI's , "Up Up and Away".
I think this is one of my Top 3 favorite projects this month.
Oh wait, it's only the 4th of September!  LOL!
Again, I was in search of something to challenge me and this was it!
Thanks, Papertrey Ink!
