30DOC, Day 11

After completing only eleven days of the 30 Days of Creativity challenge, I already have quite the collection of red wax mini sculptures building up on my bookshelf, and I have no idea what to do with them all when June (and the challenge) comes to an end! It seems a shame, somehow, to toss or destroy them – I’ve become rather attached to my little creations! – but what on earth else is one to do with a pile of dust-collecting wax shapes?

Any ideas?!

In the meantime, carrying on with the prompts…

June 11, 2012 prompt:
ORANGE – The sun, a tabby cat, or your morning juice, you can’t have a bad day when you’re surrounded by orange.

(If you want to see this in all its imperfect waxy goodness, clicking on the photo will take you to the larger version on Flickr.)

In case you missed it, this is what I’m doing throughout the month of June, and why. I’ll be posting all of my projects to my 30 Days of Creativity 2012 board on Pinterest.

This one’s for you, Becky Cochrane! 😉

    Your creativity is fantastic. I love your sculptures.
    You could put them into a compartmentalized shadow box at the end of the challenge. That way you can keep them, hang them up – and have them avoid getting dusty all at the same time!
    (I have linked to your blog from my website. I am just getting it all going…but I enjoy reading your blog and I know that others will, too.)

    Oh!  Those are cool!

  • Tweetsmom June 12, 2012

    Perhaps you could find a way to display your creations. They are really cool!!

    Wish I had time to do what you’re doing, but am already too busy and over extended! Have fun for me though!

  • DawnStorey June 12, 2012

    Thank you so much, Cari – that means a lot to me! Much appreciated. 🙂
    I like the shadow box idea! I will have to look into that.

      You are most welcome. 🙂
      I don’t know if you have Michael’s (a craft store chain) there, or not – but they frequently have a 50% off coupon which you could use in order to purchase your shadow box (if you decide to go that route.)
      Everyone likes to save money…so I thought that I could/should mention it.

        We do – as a matter of fact, that was going to be the first place I checked for a shadow box! Great to know about the 50% off coupon – I will definitely keep an eye out for that. Thank you!

    You could open a tiny little wax museum!
    (Btw, I had a dickens of a time trying to comment yesterday from my phone via livefyre- don’t know if it was just me, which is quite possible.)

    • DawnStorey June 12, 2012

      Oh, good to know – I’ll check that out. I haven’t had any problem using livefyre from my iPad, but that’s probably a whole different thing. I’ll give it a shot on my iPod Touch and see how it goes.

    You’re getting better and better at this, Dawn. I’m full of admiration.
