Stab In The Art











I love gaming, and I love Cross stitch, so obviously this was the natural progression.

I made this pattern from sprite image myself, but there are sites you can get patterns from, like http://www.spritestitch.com/ which is an awesome site.

Alternatively, you could do what i did. Open a sprite in paint, increase the image size by 500% and use blue to draw a grid onto the image, print, and stitch.

I wanted to turn this into a keyring, so I used Plastic canvas, and after I did the design, backed it with felt, and went around the edge in a matching colour. I had a problem with the corners showing, but all in all it looks ok.

 

 

 

 

 



{March 16, 2010}   Artist’s Block of Dooob

For the last few months I’ve had terrible troubles just drawing. I’m not sure if its the lack of inspiration, ideas, or the pain/weakness in my hands lately. I’ve tried to get ideas, by all my usual methods… Looking in my scrapbooks, looking on the net, wet hair on the shower wall (weird, but effective) and I’ve written down every little idea in my book that I keep with me, and its mainly filled with shopping lists or craft ideas.

But where I’ve lacked in Art I’ve made up for in craft.

Apart from my massive pile of waiting craft projects, I have been working on a gradient/spectrum scarf which I’m half way through, a scarf for my Mum for Mother’s day, and had an awesome idea for a drawstring bag, which I really want to start ( although that’s how I came to having the massive pile of Craft Projects.) I’ll let y’all know when I’ve actually finished something. May be a while…
