Minis make me crazy, but also keep me sane. That makes sense when you think about it. When stress hits, nothing clears your mind like trying to figure out a certain look or texture.
Hopefully, the brown glass jug under the sink looks like it is covered with a fine layer of mold. To create that look, I rubbed a little E6000 on my fingers and then lightly over the jar. I ran to my dryer, cleaned the vent and pinched off a little piece. I rubbed it over the jar and then brushed off the excess.
To make the snails, I used a few shells I had left over from a seashell display. I made little "feet" out of Fimo, and after inserting them into the shell, rubbed the bottom over some E6000 and placed them in the jar.
The greenery in the jar of pond leeches was made from the inside string of a cantaloupe, soaked in green food color. Again, when I use organic matter, I always make sure my resin seal is tight!
This weekend I also hung a couple of photos I found on a site devoted to Victorian post mortem photography. I found them both lovely and sad. It is chilling when you realize that only one of the girls in each photo is alive.
I guess I really don't mind being crazy. It is fun.
