Here’s what’s happening in my studio:
Every Wednesday, I do a “Try This” post where I pick a theme and work on it all month. For May, I’m making flowers with a Flower Loom. This week, I made a flower using a weaving technique. I wasn’t super pleased with my flower, but it has a quirky kind of charm. I want to try it again and see if I can get a neater flower.
I’m also taking the next several weeks to finish up paintings I started while taking Juliette Crane’s How to Paint a Girl and How to Paint an Owl E-courses. This week, I finished two paintings, a girl and an owl.
I’m also participating in the 2012 Creative Color Challenge. Each month, I’m making a yarn vase for the challenge. May’s color palette is Pink.
Have you ever wanted to learn to crochet? My friend, Dip-Dip, Bridge & Elliot’s mom, creator of the lovely little crocheted cactus I won (check it out here) and the blog Dip-Dip and The Bridge, is going to teach us. On Friday (June 1), she’s going to post a tutorial on how to crochet a dishcloth. If you’d like to join the crochet-a-long, you’ll need a ball of 100% cotton yarn and a large crochet hook. If you’d like, you can also add another ball of 100% cotton yarn in a different color for the edging. After we’ve finished our dishcloths, she’ll post pictures of our creations. I’m going to give it a try. Join me.
The thing about glitter is, if you get it on you, be prepared to have it on you forever ’cause glitter is the herpes of craft supplies.
