I want to make powerful wrist protection from SnB for my friend, but with different intarsia patterns. I've already seen one for a skull, which I would make in black, but I'm looking for a guitar to make in red and black. I haven't found any, so if someone could explain how to make a pattern (on a macintosh) or make one for me, I would love it!
I'd really like to make a monkey for my friend, but the ones made out of socks seem a bit complicated (and involve sewing, which is not a strong point). I'd prefer knitted monkeys. I've searched and haven't found anything.
Yes, into something beautiful. *crosses fingers* Or I hope it'll turn out beautiful..... I painted 6 pages of backrounds yesterday. That's the progress I've made.
Pics soon. Oh, by the way Krysta, did you use watercolors for the blue on the right page of the one titled swirly blue calm? I was trying to kind of achieve that effect with some of mine, but I'm using leftover acrylics and "patio paint" (I know, I know. But I had a lot of colors), so diluting it didn't seem to work.
As it seems I would not be totally left behind if I joined now, is it still open? I'd mention beforehand though, that this is my first experience with altered books, so I'm hoping this craftalong will keep me motivated as some of you have mentioned. I'll be off to the library today to find a good book, so hopefully I could start soon.
About the biographical idea: I'd follow the theme if it was set, but otherwise, I'll probably just experiment different things on different pages.
And this is my first experience with a craftalong, so I'll try to post pics and stuff, but they might be irregular.
