Paperclay DT Call

Hi all-

Today I am going to show you a few items I made using Paperclay.  I've worked with it years ago and really loved the idea of making my own embellishments.  Paperclay is so lightweight that it can be incoorporated into scrapbooking and cardmaking with ease.  You can paint it, color it with chalk, leave it plain the possibilities are endless.  You can even embedded objects into the paperclay and when it dries they are stuck in it.  I've sometimes even dug the "item" out and glued it in just to make sure it lasts.  I've even added glitter directly to the clay and smushed it together and hnven gotten a really cool effect.  I love stamping on it and I've recently discovered that I can even use some of my cuddlebug folders to impress/emboss it.  So, in my world, embossing folders aren't just for papers anymore.  LOL

Terri Sproul is the design team leader for Paperclay and she has sent out a Design Team call.  Just for giggles I am submitting some of my Paperclay projects.  I've seen so many talented people using Paperclay and thought maybe I could make a few things also...mine are strictly for use in my scrapbook pages and card making.  Enjoy:

 I hope you try Paperclay on some of your projects.  You can find it at Michaels, Hobby Lobby and also at Joanne's.  Again, it's very versatile and has endless possibilities.

As always, have a great day and god bless.
