better early than too late , right? Yup, this post is early.
It's 7 am on a day off work and I woke up an hour ago with a stuffy nose and sore throat.
Damn , this sucks! OK... echinacea, hot tea with honey, lemon and honey, Vit C and keep the tissue box close.... and do my blog post , because I don't know how I will feel after work on Sunday .
I have been busy the last days with pyrography, watercolors and knitting. The crochet snowflakes are currently taking a break while I do some Christmas gifts first.
Talking of Snowflakes ....I posted the pattern for you on the "CRAFTS" page. Just look at the top under my header picture for the link, and you can even watch the video how to make a snowflake.
Here are some pyrography projects I did
But I might have to purchase some more slices because I think a set of woodland animals would look great as well :)
As for knitting, I finally finished the white scarf I started with the bobble yarn.
And I did some floral drawings ..
My next project "watercolor leaves" is not finished yet.
I really have a thing for using hand painted watercolor backgrounds and elements. They might not look as "perfect" as digitally created elements , but I think this imperfect, naturally painted look gives the elements that extra charm.
It's so easy to get a shape and color it in with Photoshop or Paintshop. But with hand painted elements there is so much more involved. You achieve a certain style that just can't be copied with a computer program. It takes a lot longer and more work is involved as well, but it's well worth it !
Now.... what should I give you as next kit?
Would you like the Autumn kit ?
Or rather "The Mage's Chronicles" first?
But for now, the last part of Journey.
And as an added bonus I give you the pack of the Victory ship as well.
Have fun, stay creative and until next post.
