Here is my silly whale pillow all sewn up. It makes me laugh, his little sad expression.
This week for the Just Two Words Project Jessee
picked the word dog, and I picked the word camera. Of course we both were stumped at first about how we were going to combine them. We decided the finished object should be some sort of stationery.
I decided to concentrate on dogs right away and drew some dogs from photographs. I didn’t love any of them. I was pretty unexcited about having to draw dogs. I love dogs, just not drawing them. So I set aside the idea of drawing a dog for awhile.
The next day I decided to just draw some dogs from my head, and things got a little bit weird.
Finally I just decided to go with weird and here is what I ended up with.
I forgot to get a photo of my camera sketches, but there was only a few. I spent so much time on the dogs and when I finally decided I kept the camera bit minimal. I made two of the cards look like polaroid photos, and then of course I have the hot-dog who loves his polaroid. Once again a very fun way to challenge myself.
My fabric for Honey Tea arrived and it has been fun to compare it with my fabric print outs, and think about things I would like to change before I order some more. You can find the entire collection here
. Spoonflower and Creativebug are currently running a contest for a fabric designed as part of the Creativebug fabric design series. Since Jessee
and I designed our lines as a direct result of being inspired by the video series we each decided to each enter one of our design. You can go and vote for any of your favorites here
. There are prizes for the ten top fabrics in this contest so its quite exciting!
As you can see Jessee’s
fabrics came out so beautifully! I ordered one of the tea cup bugs for a special project and can’t wait for it to arrive.
