Ornamental/elemental polymer

Blackburn on PCdaily

Yes, this cut and folded ornament was made in polymer by London’s Carol Blackburn. Based on a clever paper or felt geometric pattern, Carol proves that the same design can be done in polymer. Her gold and silver metallic blends pump up the drama.

See how she assembles even more pieces into larger wall art in this picture on Facebook.

      Love Carol’s work. She is a master at pc.
      I am excited to be taking Doreen’s workshop tonight. And, again, thanks for mentioning my CraftCast event this Saturday. I appreciate it. I need to go and get your class today. I don’t have a silhouette, but I might after your workshop.

          I don’t know how I missed those dolls, but they are awesome! Love the whimsy and their emotional depth, and the muted colors.

            Doreen’s workshop was wonderful. You can still get the tutorial at craftcast dot com. I took it and have been seriously addicted. Sold four out of seven doll ornaments. I worked very hard at developing my own voice…. so not to copy her work. Doreen said that I was successful. Take the workshop it is so good.
