After finding an unfinished painting of Sydney Savage that I started about three years ago, I've finally been inspired to start painting again... Here are a few of the paintings that I have done recently:
Sydney Savage from Dangergirl 50cm x 60cm
Rainbow Brite 10" x 10"
Hello Kitty Small ones 6" x 6" Big one 8" x 8"
I've also done some Jem and the Holograms and Misfits paintings which I will post separately.
I have always always wanted to stick big pink flamingos on my lawn, but because I don't actually have a lawn and because I really need a bedside table lamp, I created this - the Flamingo Flower Garden Lawn Lamp (or Shrine):
The three items I used for the list were pom-poms for the flamingo bodies and heads, pipe cleaners for their necks and legs, and popsicle sticks for the picket fence. I added a gnome to the garden (because no garden is complete without a gnome!) that I got for the Gnome Swap.
Here is a picture of the lawn without the background:
The shape of the tree inspired me to to do the arch at the top (I was originally going to do a tree on either side meeting in the middle), and I tried to keep the positions of the mermaids (particularly their faces) as close to the people in the original picture as much as possible.
I think I might see if I can find some sealer to spray on it and hang it in my bathroom. Thanks for looking!
I found a pattern in one of my crochet mags for a top using this cute daisy pattern, so decided to make a shrug with it using the the typical rectangle-sewn-up-the-arms deal. The yarn is recycled from a thrift-store sweater (I felt so bad unravelling someone's hard work!) and is baby blue with a bit of sparkle to it, which didn't come out in the photos.
The pattern for this stitch can be found in my blog.
I was thinking of adding a row of sc's or dc's around the opening and at the end of the sleeves, but the pattern doesn't really allow it because I don't know how I would stitch in the horizontal petals. Any ideas?
Inspired by knitted Wonder Woman power bracelets I saw here, I decided to crochet a set of bracelets and a headband for myself. The project was put on hold for ages when I recieved a wonderful swap package from Geek-Pride containing a knitted set (oh how wonderfully stretchy knitted things are!), but I finally decided I should probably finish them, so here they are:
