Christmas Robin

Happy Christmas! (10 days early, I know, but I am in the festive mood)

So what do you think of my card design? Obviously without the self advertising text.

Robin Card

Shall I do other designs ready for next year? (Cannot do them for this year as it is too late for printing last minute etc.)

If anyone is interested in seeing more, let me know! I would love to do more designs and sell them!

Well done to everyone else who participated, it was all amazing work!

Rather happy that the ‘Bees in a Jar’ are sold. (Picture at the bottom)

Mini Felted Owl

20140102_005633

Decided to challenge myself and make a mini felted owl! This one is the size of the previous felted owls face. Surprisingly I only pricked my finger once. Here is it against my finger for scale.

Either I am telling the truth, or have a very large finger.

Felted Owl

20131230_22234420131230_222409

Created this fellow with the felting kit I had for Christmas. Isn’t it adorable?! …despite it being a little lop-sided.

100% British Wool

If you are interested in making one yourself, or another animal, then head over to http://www.craftylittlesheep.co.uk/

This website is great for books, wool and tips!

Creating this owl was my first time with the sponge mat and a single needle, instead of the brush mat and multiple needle tool.

P.S. I didn’t use all of the wool, so I got some left over to make a mini one!

Ink Skylark

At least I think it is a skylark…
I have not posted to this blog in a while which is a shame, so as soon as I draw/paint something it is going straight on here : )
At the moment another project in university is set in motion, so expect to see flowers, birds and lots of ink splatters in the next few weeks!
