Butterfly Blog Hop Reveal and Giveaway

  Ups, I'm late for my own blog hop!!! Well, I'm still in time, but it's already evening of the reveal day. I've woken up with a bad headache and was not able to finish the blog post, but now I'm ok and let's the party begin!!!

  Just to remind you what's all about in few words: I wanted to celebrate my birthday with my polymer clay and beading friends, so I decided to host a blog hop on butterflies. The participants needed to create anything related to butterflies and post it today on their blogs.

  I'm currently experimenting a new technique with polymer clay and I'm still not really good at it ... I wanted to use it for this blog hop anyway. I' still have a long way to go to be happy with the result, but I'll show it to you ...



 I know ... there are many things I need to upgrade, but it still seems very interesting to me ...


And now ... let's take a trip to visit the blogs of all the creative ladies that joined me in this celebration:

1. Alenka (Pepita) --> you are here
 
A big thank you to all of you!!!


And now the giveaway part!!!

On 13th of April I will randomly chose:
a) between all the participants at the blog hop  
5 persons 
that will receive one of beads or cabochons made by me from polymer clay;
b) between all that will comment on my reveal blog post  
1 person 
that will receive a pair of earrings made by me.
The gifts are still a secret, I will reveal them when the winners will receive them.
Let's party and be happy,
Alenka

Oh I like this technique, Alenka... looks like removing some clay in a pattern? Will be interested to see how you develop this :)

Hope you are feeling better now :) Thanks for inviting us to help you celebrate!

Thanks for the party, Alenka. I like your new technique. I'm looking forward to seeing more of it as you develop it.I hope you're feeling better and will enjoy hopping to all the butterflies1 I took your advice and made a butterfly out of something much easier and quicker than polymer clay. The butterfly wing cane will come some day but takes a lot more time!!! Happy Butterfly Birthday!!!!

Hi Alenka, Thank you so much for hosting this beautiful blog hop, I enjoyed it a lot!!
You polymer clay butterfly is beautiful, I am so scared of working with polymer clay, and I am in awe of artist that works with it.
Thank Again!!
