 I opened the first package of clay and yes, I was hooked! I rolled it out on a sheet of parchment paper to eliminate picking up anything off my desk such as glitter!

 I used the texture plate with honeycomb design-isn't this perfect for my background design?
I decided to make several leaves in a natural color so I could color with my Faber Castell colors.

 Here I made some with the red clay 
I love the big neutral bow to tie it all in together
 I used some Faber Castell markers to color the edges and edging in the leaves.
I am thrilled I could share my project you can use the link over on my right sidebar or at the top of this post to hop to the other blogs.
