A Crafty Week
(Apologies in advance for the picture heavy post)
As anyone who reads regularly will know I have gained a new interest during the school holidays, crafting. During the week I made some tags for a group swap - so far I have made 4 I need to make 16, I've just read on the site that most people make the same tag for each person they swap with wheras I'd been making different tags for each person. Now that I know that I can make a little assembly line to mass produce some of them and speed stuff up.
I've also made a couple of ATCs (Artist trading cards), the first couple I made were on playing cards - there ok as first attempts and look better in the flesh, but I'm not happy with them. The second one is my fav, it encompasses Ezra Pounds, 'In a Station by the Metro' my favorite poem. If you click to enlarge you can see more of the detail.
Finally this morning I spent 5 hours making this book! Its my first attempt at a mini book and I'm happy with how it turned out. Over the next few days I'll add little tags and cards with more quotes into the little pockets I created. The book folds out like an accordian.
What are your other interests outside of reading, do you blog about them or not?
Off to tackle mount tbr now before I go out for an Indian tonight.
