Mojo Monday at The Flying Unicorn

Hello bloggers! It's my turn to provide inspiration for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge over on the Flying Unicorn Forums, and I've taken this week's beautiful sketch by Alda in a whimsical direction.

Disney's Frozen is a fan-favourite in our house, not only with the boys, but with Mummy, too (in fact, I think the boys, and poor long-suffering Evan, are all sick and tired of my renditions of the songs from the movie LOL), and one day while playing with clay with my boys I was inspired to pull out my own clay and craft myself an Olaf, despite the heat wave we're currently enjoying.

Here is this week's Mojo Monday sketch.

Because I was using one main focal point instead of the two in the photo, I snapped the Prima resin frame in two (easy enough to do by placing it against the corner of a desk and pushing down) and laid the two pieces on an angle inspired by the placement of the two photos.

I created my background using supplies from the July Your Passion, Your Art kit from Flying Unicorn.

I used the 13 Arts Glass Microspheres in two different ways to add texture - both on the DIY Thickers and on the background, and misted over both to bring out the dimension.

And a couple closeups of Olaf :)
