Interesting, as I need 6-7 layers of Liche Purple to achieve decent opacity on miniatures. ;D
Doesn't the white paint peel off when moving though? I had bad experiences when I tried something similar on a bag years ago. Pencils and colour pencils? Is that rainproof?
I'm just baffled.

Darn, now I really want to go and sew something for a dollie, for some unfathomable reason.

I forgot to add, everything is then smothered in multiple layers of hairspray. XD. And I don't know about rainproof. Probably not to be honest. But since these aren't really for every day wear I don't worry too much about it.
And if you use thin enough layers of paint, it tends to just flex with the movement. =)

Hairspray is a great sealant, I often used it for my pencil drawings whenever I ran out of proper fixative. *nods*

There's one thing I wonder about (and my hubbie too)... why are the prefered motifs to make Dave Giles shoes pink muffins, tea cups and other sweets? ;D

All the images on the Dave shoes are inspired by songs of his. =D
Cupcake, Drink Tea And Carry on, I could list for ages. =')

Drink Tea & Carry On got a retitle btw, it's now called Churchfield Road.

Couldn't really think of anywhere else to put this...
I made a board for my Disney princess charms and bracelet to hang on because, well, I'm not likely to actually wear them on the bracelet, at least not all at once. So here it is.
Also my mini bow board that I can't remember if I posted before. Featuring the prototype Queen Elinor mini bow.

I've been knitting! Oh No!
Wrist warmers!
First attempt is a bit rubbish, but not bad for a first. Second is amazing! I love the wool so much. I might make these for people for Christmas this year!

He he he. ^^

Aw, I forgot to tell you how much I like the charms board! I really have to make one of those for my buttons. Is thick cardboard good enough as an understructure or did you use wood?

I actually used the backing from an old clip style picture frame. I also used a bit of hard board. But I guess Thick card might work? Not tried it, but hey, first time for everything, right?

It's very cute. ^^ It has no eyes though, the poor little git! Nice shade of blue you got there.

He does have eyes! Just... not added on. XD I just punched the eyes in. We don't have any black after all.

I made Holly's Birthday present! Her birthday is Christmas day, so she'll get at least two presents!

She got me into The Hunger Games, and thus, both her planned gifts are Hunger Games inspired/related.

I did some searching for what I could do with a book, and found these frame things you could put a part of a page in. Finding out her favourite line was easy, so I found myself a cheap copy of the book and set about destroying it. Not something I usually do, but it turns out it worked well! Have some photos of Holly's Hunger Games pendant.

And the Christmas present to go with it! A notebook. I was going to cross stitch the mockingjay on some felt, and cover the book in felt, but an A4 sheet wasn't big enough, and I'm impatient. Besides, I had that WHOLE book, Might as well make use of it, right?

The book pages cover the back, front, spine, and inside both back and front. I also found the words from one of the songs within the book, and they're on the front inside facing page. =)

I think she's going to like these.
