My lovely niece Olivia celebrated her 11th birthday this week and I think we can safely say that she likes Henrietta Hippo crotcheted by my friend Helen.
I'm still dithering about joining the 2016 ICAD Challenge. The task is to create a piece of art each day on an index card for 60 days or for however many days you want to join in.
Its a great task really as you learn new techniques, are given prompts and it opens your mind to different ways of thinking.
These are warm up exercises before the challenge starts proper on 1st June.
The exercises have already got me using my art stuff which I haven't picked up for sometime.
For this one we had to create circles, so I used an envelope I'd saved because
the retro pattern on the inside was to nice to chuck out.
This task was to create a design using washi tape.
I've used my Jessie Chorley printed sellotape and then hand stitched it to look like a brick wall, dog leads and shoe bows.
You have to make a front cover, so I cut up the photo of me in the dress made from a curtain and used the scraps to create flowers and leaves.
So will I join in or not.
Stay tuned to find out.
