a bunny, a workshop and a label
I'm back with more crochet news. ;) Last post I told and showed you that I was working on an octopus. Well... that didn't quite work out the way I wanted... Instead of a ball form, I created a very stretched ball. Not good for an octopus. So, I decided to make another animal. I had very bright pink yarn and decided to make a pink bunny. ;)
It took me quite a few hours (although I have to say I had to start over several times, 'cause I was also interested in the television and then I lost count). But the result is quite nice. Here it is:
I didn't have any eye-shaped beads, so I used brads instead. ;) That's how crocheting and scrapbooking come together. ;)
I think I'll attempt to make a well-shaped octopus tonight. When it's done I'll show it here of course.
In the mean time I also finished one more page of my Rome mini album. That's 3 out of 8 already. ;) And I'm planning to make number 4 as well today.
Last Friday evening a had a workshop at Creabest in Ommen, the Netherlands. We made two Christmas cards in Tim Holtz's style. It was so much fun to do and the group of people were very nice and we had some laughs. Thanks to all the people that were there and to Creabest!
These are the cards I created during the workshop.
Of course I couldn't help myself and I bought some stuff in the shop they have at Creabest. I bought some masks, perfect pearls mist, resistant canvas, labels and clear stamps. To try some of the things, I created a label.
I used Tim Holtz's masks, then some distress ink and then some perfect pearls mist on top of that. I used some stamps by My Mind's Eye from the Lost and Found collection.
Although the colours are a bit more blue than purple (which the actual colour is) and you can't really see the copper mist, but I think this picture gives a bit of an impression of the label.
Thanks so much for looking. Please leave a comment if you have some suggestions to improve my work. I'm always interested in that!
Enjoy your Sunday!
