Super heroes, here I come!

I am off to a holiday! Going to spend it with all my most beloved people. I'll be back at the beginning of August, and until then I leave you with the presents I made for two of my best friends.

I made every single detail of them (including the boxes and the clothes) and it took me almost three days. I am quite pleased and hope they will be too! And hope I don't crush them in the bag on my way there :#

So, here they go, from packed to unpacked:

Lena action figure...
...and Zule action figure
Here are both of them looking innocent and sweet. But! When you undress them (in case of an emergency, of course)...
...they turn into...

Their special powers range from arguing with public servants to barbecuing.

And now I'm off. Hope you all have a lovely summer and see you in August!

Harem and felt

Well, these are my latest doings:

I tried felting for the first time and it is great! I only got three colours from a lady at the art market here in Rotterdam a few days ago, just to try. So, I ended up with these elements (which I still haven't decided what to do with). All wet felted and all fun.

As I mentioned before, I needed comfortable trousers for a festival we are going to. It's gonna be very hot and it's a whole day thing, so this is what i came up with. Harem trousers of sorts.

Been busy - aqua flood and more

I've been really busy lately. We are going away for a month and I have been making presents, jewellry for myself, and sewing a little as well (you can never be too practical/comfortable at a festival/concert). So, here it goes:

I had some of that striped cane left from all the boudoir thingies, so i made myself a butterfly brooch. Very pleased with that one.
Btw., I found the tutorial for this striped cane (well, sheet) somewhere online, but, for the love of me, I cannot find where. Seriously, I have so many bookmarks in my Crafts section that they start to loose the point, since I need ages to just browse through the titles. Anyway, thank you to whoever it was that posted the tute, I find it looks great.

Ring is, again, for myself, if only for the reason that I like and wear absolutely huuuuge rings. I don't know anyone else who wears them as big, or would like to get one from me - I think people would find it more like a centerpiece for the table ;-). This one is 4cm in diameter. See what I mean?

This necklace is actually what I made the peacock feather cane for! The necklace is a present for my mum, and she wanted something with turqoise (which is where all of this blue madness started from). Actually, she wanted something completely turqoise, but I never go where I plan with polymer clay, so tadah! this is what she will end up with. I would be such crap at commmission work ;-)

Some cane was left, so I also made this brooch.

This brooch is a result of playing with blues and greens after coming across a magnificent tutorial by Camille Young. The technique is simple enough, but the results (hers) are gorgeous. Just follow her links and see the beautiful things she does.

Another ring, supposed to remind you of stone. Made for myself - I needed something in that colour.

And, naturally, since I already made the colour blend that I liked, that led to yet another striped sheet. Oh my. Both the necklace and the earrings bellow are made as presents for my mum and a friend of mine. Hopefully they'll like.

That's it for now. Being my oh-what's-this-i-wanna-try-it self, I have now decided to try out some felting. I have already made the elements, now I have to figure out what to do with them ;-). Will post when I'm done. Hope you enjoy this in the meantime!
