Not Quite Ready for Prime Time



I'm working on my gallery piece for TBAI (Teddy Bear Artist Invitational) in Binghamton, NY in August and these little guys will be the stars. The theme this year is "Name that Song" and I picked "Yellow Submarine" by the Beatles. Yep, these are the little Beatle bears - they will each be about 4 inches tall - and will be riding on a yellow submarine. I'm making the submarine out of paper clay and have decided to dress these little bears in band outfits like Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart's Club Band. They will each have their little instruments too! Since taking this photo, I've completed a couple of the little bears and will post more photos soon.

Such sweet faces. I can't wait to see them finished and in their 'yellow submarine'! Don't forget to show us pics!

Thanks so much April! Will do! Their little musical instruments arrived yesterday and the submarine is drying in the sun. I also plan to paint a background similar to the "Yellow Submarine" album cover. Thanks so much for your message!

Hi Donna, you do what I do with little bear heads! Cotton reels are so handy. I noticed the cute little penguins on your blog and was wondering how I can get them too?

Hi Linda!
If you look, under the word penguins there are two "B's"
Just click on that and it should take to to the website where you can choose them or some other grand creatures. If that doesn't work, send me your email address and I'll forward the link.
Huggies,
Donna
