Random Inspiration

19 Jun

Even though I have been away for a while, this blog post is proof that I am still alive and kickin’! Life has been a little difficult lately, but despite the setbacks, I am still finding time for myself  and my creativity. I took myself on a little tour of my room yesterday, attempting to find inspiration for my next little projects. This is what I found….

Pastel-coloured socks and buttons for the making of my sock-monkeys….

Pretty flamingo card I picked up at a Sunday market – I fell in love with the candy-sweet colours!

Skull brooch by Pegeggleg, an Edinburgh artist whose work I LOVE! I have named my skull Skeletor, and he currently resides on my vintage dressing table, too cute to be worn just yet!

Hand-made teddy-rabbit, so sweet. So much care has been put into creating these! The cute little details below are awesome!

This illustration belongs to a flyer promoting a reggae club night. I saw it and everything about it made me want to pull out pen and paper and create my own quirky characters! 

My Owl Friday

28 Mar

Pottering around at home on a lazy Sunday, I usually contemplate beginning some new project or other, and yesterday was no exception. The only difference is that I finally acted on one of the projects that I had been wanting to make for a little while, and having a few hours spare, I decided to go for it. And the result are these cute little owls. I found out about this little project on the totally awesome site Cut Out and Keep – a social networking site for crafters and creative types who love to get their hands dirty – chock-a-block with all sorts of things to make, from bags, jewelery, to collage, sewing and knitting, and mixed media.  I chose these little owls quite simply for the reason that I love owls! They are so cute and easy to make, and because Spring is just around the corner, I think these little guys are right appropriate!

If you like the look of these little ‘ un’s and would like to make your own, full instructions for this project ( and countless others! ) can be found here .
