The one about the clay dinosaurs


Clay-dinosaurs

After attending a clay workshop, I proceeded to purchase air-dry clay and all the necessary tools so that I could "teach" the Gangster Gang [aka niece + 3 nephews]. Or so I thought...*winks*


Nephew #2 wasn't keen on listening to instructions and went right in to create his clay dinosaur.


Nephew #3 attempted a dinosaur...then proceeded to give his aunt [aka me] instructions to complete it....[Oh yes, I was "bullied" into it by his puppy eyes..*sob*]


The background was created with The Crafter's Workshop stencils and Dylusions ink sprays.


The American Crafts thickers had patterns on them that didn't match my layout so I coloured them with a black Sharpie and outlined with a white pen.
