101 Square-A-Thon: Square 13

Helloooooooooooooooo!

I decided to pick my 101 Square-A-Thon back up after years of WIP hibernation. lol Instead of keeping with the squares in order, I decided to jump to Square 13:


This one was a lot of fun to hook up although I had to frog and re-hook more rounds than I care to admit. lol I didn't have much of a plan for this one, I just grabbed a couple of colors and ran with it. :P


I've been working so hard on my hat shop this year that I had stopped making anything outside of it for the longest time. I finally decided to make some time for other projects that I want to crochet so the 101 Square-A-Thon is BACK ON. lol! :D

Have a great day!

The Art Inside You

Hi everyone!

December is upon us, incredible! I'm doing the challenge this month at Gauche Alchemy, here's the inspiration board:


I decided to work on a page in my art journal and I got a jumpstart from this full page magazine ad:


I cut out the model, lol, and created a background that would fill up the hole I made in the ad. The biggest benefit of using a full page ad was that it covered up some ink bleed through from the back side of the page, lol. You can kind of see it in this picture:

Background with film negative, Bingo card and grey roses napkin
I covered the partial background I made with a very thin tissue paper-like handwritten sheet. I will really miss this when it's all used up. Best thing in my stash lately!


I thought this little sticker quote worked well since I've got a background inside of a snowy window. lol >.<



You're welcome to play along with this challenge and enter your project for a chance to win a prize! Check out the Gauche Alchemy blog for details. :D

The Moon Sees Me

Hi everyone!

No Fab Five today as I wanted to share a new art journal page of mine that is also posted over at Gauche Alchemy. I headed up October's mixed media challenge and this is my project inspired by it:


My background was created with Dylusions inks, water and star stenciling with chalk inks. I painted a chipboard circle flourish with Art Anthology gelate in Black Leather Jacket and cut out an illustration of Audrey Heburn to become my "moon". She makes a pretty moon, doesn't she? :)


Have a great weekend!

October 2014 Red Heart Crochet Along

Hi everyone!

Today is my birthday but more importantly, I finished a project! lol :P I decided to join the October Red Heart Crochet Along (or CAL) on Ravelry. The pattern was the Divine Hat pattern and I used Red Heart's Boutique Unforgettable yarn in Parrot. This line of yarn has some unbelievably beautiful colorways.


It took me no time at all to hook this up which was definitely a plus!


Super quick + colorful yarn = Finished hat that I'm not afraid to wear. lol Fun hooking times!


Not only did a I finish a project, but I also blogged over at my vintage blog, Circle 7-2099. I'm on fire! lol

Have a great day everyone!
