my excitement yesterday
was all about : crochet with a pen!
for this DIY project you need porcelain markers, some doilies and mugs or other dishware
first of all, let me excuse the colors of the paint on the mugs : it irritates me that I can't get the colors right
the blue is a more darker Delft Blue in real life, and the teal is not as neon as it seems
well, what do you think? are you sharing my excitement?
I started out with the Nordic winter decor, just because I wanted a try out before I did the crochet painting
that's the way it works for me when I haven't done a certain craft for a while
I start with a try out, to get the hang on it again
as some of you might remember, in my early blog days, I did a similar project to this
big difference between that project, is the size of the tip of the pen was much smaller this time
with the dolies on the table and the mug in my hand, I just did it
no try out on paper, no pre-design, just do it
I definitely had my very happy moment yesterday when I re-created three doily patterns on the mug
can you tell the resemblance?
if I may say so, I am very pleased with how they turned out!
also, I can see the endless possibilities for this project
different colors, repetitive patterns, symmetrical patterns...
but for now, we just have two new mugs
to drink tea and latte's with a very bright smile
