GARDEN CREATURES


Take a look at some of the creatures in my garden!
I 'found' him at a local charity shop.  He is made out of wire and beads.  He is positively radiant when the sun shines through the beads!

A closer inspection of Joseph's 'coat'.   He was made using a store-purchased ceramic mold, to which I added small mosaics in jewel tones, with some mirror tiles.  The head and feet were painted with bronze craft paint.

Some owls - also charity shop finds which have been spray painted.
