(image from http://www.scrapbook.com/articles/creative-quotes)I have got lots of stamps, inks, embossing powders, a small and a large die cutting machine, and I have been experimenting with what I can make.
However, whilst investigating online and watching tutorials and craft channels, I have been discovering that many of the media I have will work with other crafts that I enjoy. For example, I have Blockwallah woodblocks which can be used on fabric, card and polymer clay, depending what paint or ink you use with them. I am thinking that I need to make some decorations.
I have a heat gun which can be used for embossing powders but I have also found out it can be used on Kato liquid polyclay (this is the only liquid clay which can be heated using a heat gun) to create ceramic effect polymer clay, or enamel effect polymer.

I am going to try both of these effects once my liquid clay arrives.
I also have some ultralight clay which can be put through a die cutting machine once it is dry. It can also be sculpted and remains flexible once dry, unlike polymer clay. I haven't tried it out yet, but I need to.
My jewellery making stash can be used to make jewellery, of course, but I can also use it in felt projects or on decorations with my polymer clay.
I am feeling very excited about all these possibilities and will share my makes as and when ... roll on my next day at home!
