Been almost a month since my last post – how time flies! Holidays are over, work and school started again, back to the regular routine. Crafting does happen, but blogging less. Hope to be able to make something for the Chocolate Baroque challenge in time!
I’ll show some things I made the past year (or still haven’t finished) which I might not have shown yet on my blog. These things include a skirt for my son, natural ink and many cards. First a gallery with the ink, then a gallery with the rest. The ink pictures are from May. I haven’t touched the jars since except for once, and then I threw out the onion one as it smelled horrible. Not sure how moldy the rest is… Ink was too ligh to be really usable. Another chance soon, the walnut is shedding it’s nuts and they /their shells are great for ink. (But then again, what do I do with this ink? It’s not stamping ink…)
And now the rest:
Cut edges in old cards with shaped scissors
Apply molding paste with the card for texture.
My first try at an art journal page. Didn’t like the result, too many layers
My second attempt, I liked this. Didn’t know how to go from here, so I left it like this. No 3rd page made yet.
Cute little swimming dragon – I gave it to my nephew for his birthday, but due to the focus on the outside of the card, I forgot to write something in it 😛
A basic card in browns
One of my favourite cards, with the Sea Steampunkiness.
Chocolate Baroque stamps and a M-bossability embossing folder.
This frame is still waiting for a cardbase.
Card for a man. Something different.
Side 1 from the skirt. The other side is jeans.
Oh a card from a bird in between. Nothing special to see here, move aling.
The other side of the skirt.
He likes the swirl of skirts. Might be a bit heavy though.
Jeans side. Note that I can’t sew. By that, I mean that ofcourse I can put fabric under a sewing machine, and sew from one side to the other. Straight lines? A complete pattern? (I did look up how to make/draw the circle, but as the jeansfabric was from an old jeans I had to change bits here and there. It’s still like this, I’m stuck at: what kind of band do I put on top and how do I do it without breaking my needle?
Like this card a lot too. VivaLasVegaStamps, text is from Crafter’s Companions.
Canvas. I did do more to it, it’s hardly reconizable. Not prettier, just different 😛
As seen on facebook, my masculine card but trying to stay away from too much brown.
And ofcourse some “relaxing” in the garden with the kids.
