i've always wanted to this ABC gum snail but didn't have a prompt that fit...but now i don't need one! haha. i chewed up some super bubble pieces and used a toothpick to help me lay it out on the paper.

day one hundred and eighty eight

i have my ears gauged to a zero & over the years i have collected many gauges. i took them over a year ago and recently decided to put them back in so i was switch my 2's to my "1" gauge so i can get back to a 0. i thought this would be a colorful snail.

one hundred and eighty seven

i was asked to make some felt owls for a friends sisters baby shower. i made 50 smaller ones with the boy owl in the belly of the purple one for the invitations. these are 3D ones are for table decorations. so i finished them and thought i would use them for today's snail. they turned out super cute!

day one hundred and eighty six

pill snail.

i just bought some aleve & tums so i knew i had quite a few pills or variations of pills on hand...this was more colorful in purpose but i had to use the flash which drowned the colors out. i realized after it makes me kind of look like some kind of addict!

day one hundred and eighty five

nail snail!

i did this before but it was too thick to dry...and it was too thick to dry this time too. i ended up smudging it soon after it wiped it off. i wish i got a picture of that though...because it took off the lime green color underneath so i had the outline of it with my natural nail showing through. someday i will find a technique that works!

day one hundred and eighty four

i'm back.

so...i went camping and failed to make snails while i was gone. when i got home i felt like a complete loser. i can't believe how busy i am, even while i'm not working. stuff just keeps coming up. every day i didn't make a snail i felt more and more bad about it. so i talked to my mom and husband and decided to continue the project but not constrict myself to following the book prompts. some days it was just too hard to find one that fit into my day. so i'm back for good...or at least until i hit day 365.

this snail is made by pot sticker dipping sauce & a fork.
