Happy planting green fingers!

Ceramic painting

Hi guys πŸ–

I had wanted to try painting ceramics. As you can see I decided to give it a go. I had played around with the idea of using brushes and paint, but with the detail I wanted I didn’t feel I would of had enough control over the paintbrush.

I then discovered the magical world of paint markers! I will leave a link below of the markers I purchased. They are great quality and very reasonably priced.

I wanted to either paint my own mug or a set of tea and sugar pots. Of course I made both πŸ˜‚

I doodled little objects on each pot and wrote a quote on each one. The mug is inspired by the pixar movie up! I love how they turned out and they are pride of place on my kitchen counter.

Sealant then needs to be applied to protect the paint. I used mod podge dishwasher safe. So when they need washed I will have no problems with paint pealing off or cracking. This is an amazing product and would highly recommend purchasing to seal any of your ceramic art. Link below to the product.

Happy crafting my lovelies.

I look forward to more ceramic painting in the near future 😘

Crochet jumper

Hi guys πŸ–

Wanted to share a crochet project I completed quite some time ago my first piece of clothing I made.

I can’t recall a pattern being used I think I was watching YouTube videos on crocheting jumpers and i measured to fit.

Give it a go watch a few videos for an idea on how many chains to start with and where to position the arms.

Just a little inspiration 😘

Liam the leprechaun -crochet

Happy St Patrick’s day ☘

This is Liam the leprechaun. Loved every minute of crocheting this little guy. He is on showcase all year through not just for St Patricks day in my house, he is way too cute to hide away.

The detail in this amigurumi project was crazy, which why i think he turned out so amazing. There was a lot of thought and effort put into this pattern. I adjusted the pattern slightly to suit my own style you can work it up whatever way you like also.

Check out the pattern @ https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/liam-the-leprechaun

As you can see below he has been on his adventures in the beautiful Irish countryside. Up to mischief and searching for rainbows 🌈
