Last month, I signed up for Alpha Stamps Gypsy themed swap and I've finally finished my pieces. I had fun working on this swap and I'm excited to see the returns I receive. All of the work I've gotten returned from the swaps there has been fabulous! Here's a picture of the pieces that I'll be sending out in the mail tomorrow first thing! On another, but related note, a design team member at AS is having a blog tutorial on building a mini apothecary shop and all of the goodies to go in it. I am SO EXCITED for this. I've never participated in anything like this, but can't wait to give it a try. I was literally drooling over her work, it's so awesome! Go here to see what I'm talking about!
So, I am continuing working in my latest media obsession of choice, felt. I made two more creatures. One scores pretty high on the creepy scale (but I still really like it, I think the doll eyes really push it over the top), and the other is a cute little robot. For those of you that know me, it was only a matter of time before I made a robot. Think I will probably do another one, but I think this time I'd make it more dimensional to be more boxy like a robot. I'm sure I'll come up with some more creepy ones too. I've been hitting the internet looking for some inspiration, so I'm sure something will strike my fancy soon enough!
So I have had a high interest in creating "creatures" from felt lately. So what did I do pretty much all day today (and part of yesterday) in any spare time I had...? I had a first attempt at creating some felt creatures inspired by the book Zombie Felties. I love everything Halloween inspired, so this book was definitely right up my alley! I had a lot of fun making these and maybe I'll try to create a robot one next. Oh yeah, I've decided that I do not like to use craft glue for felt. It really doesn't stick very easily, or hold very well either.
