Hello Long time no post, been awfy busy and forgot to upload any work here, sowwie!
Here're a couple of recent tattoo designs i've doodled for friends. Attempting to brush up on my doodling skills, and building aportfolio to hopefully apply for a tattoo apprenticeship. Crits and tips are welcomed
(I did not tattoo this piece, alterations and inkage done by Heaven & Hell tattoos in Scotland by Zara)
My wee sock monkeys have been pretty popular with my friends and family, so thought i would share them here too. Quite addicted to making the wee guys, might end up with a army like idid my plush monsters...
A few have also been on display recently in my local area
My own personal wee monkey, matches my monster plush and lives in my car haha
My wee monkeys so far. Most are already off to their new homes
As i discussed in my last post i've made it my mission to start using my hoard of craft and art supplies, in hopes of clearing some space and justifying more purchases. (I'm addicted to the stuff!) So this is week two and i've began working my way through a few different materials. This has turned out ridiculously fun, and allowed me to play with my heat gun! hehe. It's the simple things!.
Any suggestions, tips and comments are welcome as always ^_^
T-Rex skeleton I'd seen something like this a long time ago, but it cost far too much to buy, silly amounts of pennies, so decided to make my own
I've decided to try get through my mountains of craft supplies and use them up before buying more (Well...kinda failed already after craft shop splurge the other day..) Not the best at beaded jewellery but learning slowly
I've made a handful of other designs, but thought i'd better not post them all and clog up the page! haha.
Back into the swing of things again, so here're a few more sketches i've been doing today. My previous birdies are now on their way to their new homes across the pond to USA which is rather lovely. Whatchas think? Lots more coming soon.
Scruffy little baby owl
Another wee owl
A doodle for my friend, two owlets to represent her sons.
My other pieces can be found scattered about here in craftster forums
I've seen a few wee pieces like this, with clay pieces and plush bodies, so decided to give my own a go. Inspired by the flock of ravens that sit on the power lines cawing and wake me up every morning..
Might have another shot at these once i get more clay.
More off my work can be found dotted about the depths of the Craftster forums, my facebook fan page and DA. Feel free to snoop about if you wish.
This is the latest bunch of polymer clay charms that i've been playing with. First attempt using Liquid gel too, although not quite got the hang of making frosting look...well frosting-y, Looks more like runny icing haha. More attempts soon, watch this space. Haha.
Shall be popping these onto a bracelet like my previous charmies, which is somewhere in the depths of the Craftster forums, and my facebook fan page, if anyone wants to snoop at my older attempts.
Any tips or suggestions for new charms are welcome
I handmade this wee cutie today. First ever attempt at a sock mokey, and i wanna make more now! Need to raid the shops.
He's a little more quirky than your traditional sock monkeys, with his little rosy cheeks, black buttons and tuft of mo-hawk hair
This piece was made out of a worn but VERY well washed pair of socks, lightly stuffed with poly fill, given cute wee safety eyes and added extras secured with fabric glue. The entire piece was hand sewn. 28cm from head to toe, with a 16cm tail.
As this was my first attempt it has a few flaws, that i'll be working out with newer attempts. Planning on making army off these wee guys in the near future, like i did with my "Snuggle monsters", i'll try to remember to update on here and not just Facebook this time!
