    And when she shows up, she does it with a “Grand Entrance.” Wow GF, this is gorgeous! Love your project and all the details you shared. You know my melt pot is open but never used. Why does it scare me? Thank you for a chance to win that awesome package! Big Hugs!

    Wow, you really pulled a lot of techniques out of the hat for this project! Other than UTEE I haven’t used these products. Looks like fun!

    I love the way you showed several techniques in this post! Good inspiration. I rarely use my pot – Must get it out.

    Thanks so much for the give-away!!

    This is such a fabulous project! So many techniques with UTEE packed into one! Will have to try the squiggles, that is too fun!

    So Excited to see your post today and that you were part of Ranger’s Melt Art Mania! Your melt art project is my favorite. So many different techniques and layers and all wonderful. I was amazed when I realized you made your own face mask by making a mold of your porcelain doll, and the squiggles are a touch of genius. Beautiful colors and textures…Love It! Love your blog! Thanks for sharing your inspiring artwork.
