Stitched Deco for A Shop

Stitched this within few hours. Glad I made it in time!!! This was made for an ex-schoolmate who has recently launched a shop.

I would say it fits in well with her shop theme.

Feel free to drop by her online shop.

In you are in Penang, go over to Uptown Mall in USM. :)

Tile Art

First go at tile art. Kids kit is the best when you want to try your hand at something new.

From someone who can't draw and can't paint, the following is the result. :p

All now stuck on the fridge door.

Experimenting Glass Etching

Etched glasses have always been beautiful in my eyes. There is simply something classy about the embossed look.

With my recent obsession with eBay shopping(most of the time just screen shopping), I bumped into a glass etching kit. Just the right thing at the right size and price. So here it goes.

Vase before etching took place.

Etching in progress.

Trying hard to make it visible on the camera.

Yellow lighting doesn't do this justice! Anyhow, better view of 2 sides of the vase below.

1st Canvas Art

I am no artist
I am no painter
To a feel at ease
Now here's a picture.

To tonight feel so not right. Missing some satisfaction but can't find the right thing to do do I decided to unwrap a square plain canvas and paint something.

I can't draw but the shape of heart is my favourite.

Could use a better contrast I guess.

Here's what I found out. I paint with my right hand! "=.=

First Try : Polymer Clay

I've seen this many times at the toy section and art supply shop but have never given it a shot. The pessimism in me kills it everytime.

Anyhow, I got this kit from Art Friend over the weekends only at RM9.90. Pretty small amount of money to be spent on something you are unsure about.

It comes with 2 small packets of polymer clay, a piece of small paper with a diagram of how each pieces should be before you construct the object, a magnet and 2 eyes; I bought a kit to make a crab magnet.

I was as usual pessimist about myself doing this coz even as a kid I don't recall making many shapes out of clay or play-doh!

With no experience with polymer clay, I watched few clips on YouTube just to see how others do it. So nice to see kids enjoying this and sharing it with others in the cyber world.

After few clips (and dinner), I finally opened the kit and tadaa!
Looks crappy but quite crabby. :p

With the lack of experience an tools (I used my husband's letter opener to create the indent of the claw), I had a tiny bit of leftover in orange. Made it into a little heart. No magnet for it though.

I think it looks quite ok. :)

P/s: Polymer clay is way better than the clay we used to play with in preschool. It doesn't leave any sticky residue on the surface where we rolled it. Hand stays clean too! Why didn't we have this back in preschool??? :p

Head Over Heals on a Tuesday

An unexpected gift from a dear Pinoy friend :)

The kit is staring at me while I work today! Hahaha

Another friend dropped by my desk and saw this. She asked "Why is it a junior one? Shouldn't it be atleast advance for you?" lol I replied "My friend knows I do not have much time in hand to do an advance one. " ;)

The Hoops

How many hoops do you have?
How do you store the hoops?

I placed mine on the hook mounted by the side of my craft/study table. :)

7 altogether!

Would like to try out Q-Snaps someday :)

Welcome Charm

My first Celtic project.
My first project with felt backing.
My first project with hoop finishing.

The turquoise thread is poked to match my friend's newly opened laundry theme colour.

This was stitched using 3strands of thread to make the letterings appear more prominent. I have always adored the embroidery hoop so this one is just the right one for it.

I don't know where to get a backing cloth so I decided to finish it with patterned felt :)

The ribbon is also made with felt!

Lesson learned :
1. There are some bits of triangles that needs to be cut off to see curve!
2. Blanket stitch!
