I’ve been a bit busy over the past few days and I’ve slightly neglected Thing A Day – I did do this doodle yesterday and today I made a pan of chilli (which has just gone up on my new
All images made in Processing. The algorithm is called “Togetherness”, and I found it here. If you have Java, you can see it in action. (Give it a few minutes…) Unfortunately, the blob edges don’t converge. They will keep sparkling
I saw something similar on the internet and I really wanted to have them in my kitchen. And soon as I woke up I started working. For a long time I wanted very much to do a mix of photos
There were many things that Constable Benhardie liked about being a member of the force in the old port town. He liked the shiny buttons on his smart uniform even if the department issue shoes were clunky old-fashioned brogues. He
I’ve been doing some more backgrounds and water pieces today. In addition to the ‘ingredients’ yesterday (twinkling H2Os, mica powders, water & salt) I got out my watercolour paints. I’ve made a colourful, shimmery, soggy mess. The best part about
Have you seen my dog, Gwen? After having our dog run off and the city pick her uo at fines way past what they should. I thought I need to put a phone number on her. A simple TAD where
You’ve seen it in various stages of development. Now it’s done! And I’m almost caught up on TAD.
Every day I am going to throw an object up in the air ten times. I am going to film myself doing it and select ten frames where the object is covering my face and make an animated gif.
So we get a lot of used books. Some of them were in need of repair. So today’s thing is rebinding board books. All it took was some super glue, a binder clip and some fancy duct tape.
Amelie has finished her mouse in box set, super cute kid craft inspired by ‘ mmmcrats’ blog now mouse lives in a little tin … And I made a mini banner for a cake or table decoration , or for
And I forged another knife, this time keeping a very close eye on my hammer techniques and I had a good result. Grinding was very easy this time around, even though my belts are dull by now. Profile is as forged.
This has been on my to-do list for way too long! The goal: to embellish this plain corduroy skirt. I used embroidery thread and buttons and have to admit – I’m really happy with how it turned out!
I didn’t have a pillowcase to spare, but I improvised using fabric from the duvet cover I cut up for bunting last weekend. My first attempt at fabric yo-yos didn’t turn out too badly either, but I had problems getting a picture
It was a busy day today. I worked on the top half of the Veda robot and made a friend muffins for their birthday. Now I’m off to bed. See ya tomorrow!
I’ve had this big box of mixed Czech glass beads kicking around the Bead Cave forever. Every once in a while, I’d paw through it trying to find what I wanted, but the mess was definitely not working for me,
Just so everyone knows, I would not do this to myself but my niece is slightly obsessed with hair removal and through the years, we’ve had some pretty hilarious hair waxing adventures. Now she uses this recipe and says it
Just posting but Thing Fifteen is a fish pen made from a gourd. The gourd was dyed and wood burned long ago but just finished with the pen parts.
A lovely time was had by my dog, my sweety and myself ~ walking the beach in the moments that were not pouring sideways rain, today. I made mini meatloaves in the big cupcake pan ~ to warm us up
It’s a Drama Llama. Maybe a Drama Alpaca (I have a hard time telling them apart). In any case, this is a quick sketch from a photo I took at the local agricultural show last year. I used coloured pen
I tested a few different things here, and just generally made a mess in order to get a clearer idea of what I want to do with the actual painting I’m planning.
This is a drawing made using the stippling technique with a fineliner on medium weight drawing paper. It’s roughly 5×7 inches.
Still having problems with my computer, which means another late post – hopefully I can figure it out this weekend. Last night I put the finishing touches on a memo board that I painted a couple of months back. This
I made this today: and finally wrote this one up and got it listed: and I finished this: P.S. Sue, that’s your Christmas present, it took me a while to get it finished but I hope you like it.
Well, its actually day 18, but since I haven’t slept yet, I’m counting this as day 17! Went straight from a crazy day at work to an after work bowling party with my co-workers. I haven’t gone bowling in a
This is a small angel ornament I came up with a couple of years ago. I used a cane I made last month and put one together tonight. She has a little bell inside and is about two inches tall.
