Operation Use All the Things continues

Years ago, I scored several paper mâché statues sold by Crafty Chica as 'Paint Your Own Goddess' thingalas. I've done..two, for Shira, and I gave an unpainted one away, and the other three have been on storage all this time. (Note: they were VERY much on clearance at the time; if you can find these things now, you'd never buy that many at once.)

So over the past week, I've done this..

So this one has been in my head for year's. I'm not 100% sure it meets the mental vision, but ..

There's a bit of glitter in the edges around her body.

I'd wanted to put pumpkins around the base, but the ones [livejournal.com profile] adelheid_p found for me didn't quite work. I may revisit that later.

This one I'm mostly more pleased with..

Again, hard to see, but all of the red is glitterfied. This project has made me go through my paint stash and see what's still good. Not a surprise to anyone using glitter nail polishes (I'm looking at you, [livejournal.com profile] shadowwolf13..your posts helped me with this project) but it's not the easiest thing to work with.

Part of my desire to destash is trying to use up beads et al. I don't even know why I had this strand of iridescent lavender chunky bits, but I'm ridiculously happy with the decision to use them.

And the back is more sparkle to try to work with the front bit. Not sure it works. It may just need more of it...

Those are great. I like the way you've decorated them so very much. :)

Thank you!

It's always a bit of a weird struggle in my head to play around with artsy stuff. I was raised being told I'm a WRITER and NOT an artist of any sort. So this is a sort of art therapy, I supoose.. :)

I can see that the pumpkins we found were too big. Maybe a trip to our local craft stores is in order?

Maybe! They were almost large enough to cut in half and use as a border around the base, but not quite..It was a grand try, though. Thank you for spotting them!
