New crafty Items
I love embroidery hoop wall art and when I saw a small hoop in a new craft shop near me, the thought of making one burst into my brain! I wasn’t really sure what to make so just ended up using some material I had left and some cute beads, this fabric dragonfly and star.
I quite like it. I used to do a lot more sewing and things with textiles. I picked up Mollie Makes but also heard about this new magazine called Hoop-La! which is already too cute, so I got that too. Going to start some more hoops soon, I can’t wait! I also got some fabric quarters and am going to try a fabric paint and this wooden stamp for a new cushion. I really have so many projects fighting there way out my mind!!! It’s getting crazy in there!
A few pictures from the weekend
Iron on sugar sull
It seems my skull love has no bounds at the moment! I used fabric pens for the design on the cushion cover, and found this cute iron on patch sugar skull to brighten up an old cardigan.
I love my new carving stamps hobby and have been experimenting with different skull designs. More to come!
This is a stream of consciousness doodle thing which I find really relaxing to do.
This bird was half planned in my brain partly because I wanted to do another video with the sprays and that I wanted to focus my doodle pattern into a coherent image. It turned out OK although I know I can do better.
I made this a little while ago and put it to one side because I wasn’t sure what to do with it. However, I actually think now it is finished and so cute! I love making small items and especially themed things. I had a lot of little embellishments that went well with a sweets and cute theme – I love the tiny ice cream x
Some new Magazines
Resin Keys and Stickers
New Dylusions Art Journal
New Papers and Book Box
Inside Book Box
Some more art journaling
This week I have been thinking of exploring more textiles and sewing for my creative projects so picked up two magazines for inspiration. I also decided to buy a new Dylusions art journal because my old one is now so fat it is really difficult to do two pages! I’m completely obsessed with the newness of journals and notebooks – so many possibilities!
This book box from Graphic 45 is just too cute for words and includes 3 tags inside – excited to start thinking of a theme for it. And I’ve been exploring and enjoying my doodle art journaling in my smaller journal, although I use my Posca pens so much I’m starting to run out.
Hope everyone gets to do something creative this week :)
I made another little video here and used a black primer for the background and my favourite Posca Pens to draw the flowers. I love the affect :) I want to make more videos although they do take a lot of time.
