Polymeri Online 23.10.13 | Coffee anyone, Twisted side of polymer clay, 17 ideas for jewelry hangers, PC Bowteek, Ahemm picture of me 20 yrs ago and new Flower Academy upgraded IKEA picture frames

Now that most of the hard work on the Flower Academy tutorial is behind us (all that's left is packing and packing), I can go back to my regular routine and post interesting links from the world around us.




I stumbled across Italian Duecentogrammi's work via Intagram, then followed her into Facebook, enjoying the view. 
Colorful millefiori patterns & designs are surrounding her work, so bright and wonderful! 
In this Coffee set she decorated plates, cups and a pitcher! Geometric patterns are her main focus and they combine beautifully with the rainbow skinner blends.

Another polymer clay artist I found via Instagram was UK DeeRaaArts, Kirsti which is playing with polymer clay for 6 years now. She mixes her cartoony, colorful and happy side, with a dark, mischievous, slightly twisted side, as she calls it. She posts her process photos in Instagram, look her up and follow.

ArchitecturArtDesigns blog posted 17 creative diy ideas for jewelry hangers. You can use those simple yet impressive ideas by collecting some of your un-used or neglected home tools! Garden tools, boxes, cloth hangers and even a grater! Click the link below to get inspired.

Last one for today is PGBowteek (Shannon) Etsy boutique where she creates every bow with lot's of love!
She is a wife and sahm of 8! (I admire these mothers!) and also have a grandson.  Shannon has been creating bows since 1993 but been online since 2000. Every hair bow is decorated with a matching polymer clay center and the final result is so fun and cheerful! 

Last Reminder! If you're still looking for a special gift for yourself (a blooming tutorial) or for your loved ones, how about creating a magnificent flower brooch for your auntie? A flower bouquet for your mom? A set of flower pot magnets for your cousin? A beautiful flower decorated mirror for your sister? 

Create beautiful and colorful bobby pins for your bridesmaids? Dramatic flower ornaments to decorate your Christmas tree? Add pizzas to your home with cheerful holy branches? Decorate your gifts with life lasting Mistletoe branches?
The options are endless!

The Flower Academy tutorial is still on promotion and dozens of new students are joining the "Academy",
Thank you Sage Bray and Cynthia Tinnaple for the feature!

Here are 3 photo frames I made a couple of days ago, upgrading simple IKEA frames with acrylic paints and adding fantasy flowers for decoration. Isn't this colorful and happy?

As Gabriela said -
..."This must be the most extensive flower guide in polymer ever made; there are quite a few for air dry clay or sugar, but those don’t of course solve technical issues related to polymer clay, nor do they offer such variety of projects. Well thought out and well made!..."
