Try some fluffy stuff

Hello Everyone,

I love Teddy bears...any kind. So happy to be on Stampfairy and to be able to show you new releases, every Friday..[ and they will be here later today]..of Barry and Lenny and all the other little beauties that there are to show....and so happy that there is challenge blog called Ready-teddy-go to show more teddies....Soooo..I decided to have a play and see if I could make my teddies fluffy.

I tried many different things.. too boring, and they didnt work, just made a right mess of things...then My g/son who was visiting, and colouring in, asked for the pencil sharpner..

There it easy for the kids to use...ok...easy for me.
Walking across the room after sharpening 3000 pencils to minute stubs.... he dropped it...good grief...shavings went everywhere....BUT...instead of  rolling my eyes and huffing and puffing....guess what I saw........BEAR FLUFF....aha!!...yup.. I did.

So off I went to play with my new found bear fluff.

This was my first attempt, and I didnt really like it as the bear lost his details and looked patchy..

Water looks good....but the bear looked rather distressed, and not in a pretty way.....

So I played around again, and this came out a bit better....not perfected...never will kinda cute...

This is Barry Pumpkin,and you can get hin from HERE  and I followed a sketch from Sweet sketch Wednesday

I think he looks quite good, and the shavings are real soft and dusty, not hard curls.

Anyway theres my Bear for today, going to enter into 2 challenges
