I thought I'd introduce you to my lovely friend Val from Blaxland Bloom's. She's my latest happy customer. I went a bit crazy in Spotlight last week and brought in an enormous bag of wool for her to choose from. I love the colour combo. It looks great on her.
It's the final week of Summer of Colour 4! It always goes too quick. I love this colour combo. Makes me think of a poolside bar sipping a fruit cocktail. Yum. Meanwhile I'm sitting in my Ugg boots with the heater on, it's winter in Sydney! I really enjoyed the geometric process I did in week 3 so decided to do another version. I found what I thought was hot pink wool in my local Op Shop. When I got home I discovered it was like fish net stockings! It's great. I already made my friend a scarf with it and wanted to use it again.
Thanks for following my SOC 4 journey!
This week's entry was a bit of a rush. My weekend didn't go to plan. I usually have 4hrs to myself on a Saturday but that just didn't happen. All week I thought I'd do a nautical theme but it ended up being an aeronautical theme! I really liked the colours and had some scrap booking pictures with retro planes so put them to good use. I went to our local hardware store and got some pain swatches which I used as the background blocks
Well I'm a little late blogging seeing as though Week 4 was last week!Our challenge was Pink, Apple Green and Smudge/Splash/Pop of Dark Green.
My friend just came back from Japan and bought me some beautiful hand made paper so I had it in my mind that I would use some for this project.
The boys and I were walking, well I was walking and they were riding, up to the shops and I found this amazing shaped wire rim on the ground. It was properly joined and symmetrical but not perfectly round. Yoink I'll take that! I got home and started to make a dream catcher using hot pink and green wool. It usually takes a couple of hours to weave then add the embellishments but I still really wanted to use the paper. I thought I'd use the wire as a frame instead. I got my paper and a few other materials together and this is what I came up with.
