New Crafting Ideas, What’s Coming Soon
Right now, I’m pretty excited about some upcoming projects that I have lined up to learn how to do. I hope you find it just as much fun learning along with me.
Southwest decor and beading is beautiful, in my opinion. The colors are vibrant, and the designs draw your attention. This form of art seems to never go out of style, and I appreciate the work that goes into a piece of work. That’s why I want to learn more about the intricate art of beading.
I have almost got my first Peyote stitch piece done. It’s very tedious, but the results are worth it. As you will notice, I have a lot to learn about tension as well. The finished weight is more than I imagined it would be. My original plan was to make this into a bookmarked, but now I’m not so sure. Guess we’ll see when it’s finished.
There are so many things that I would like to do in this area of crafting—making keychains, bookmarkers, wall hangings, personalized dog collars, horse tack (headbands, and breast collars). The list goes on and on.
Rock painting, I think, is something that can go places if marketed right. I’ve found some detailed paintings done on rocks that look like fun. There are also lots of different inspirational sayings that can be used. The stones can then become paperweights, garden decor, home decor, worry stones, etc. From what I have been researching, there are several ways to perfect rock painting as well. Most artists seem to be using acrylic paint and applying it with either a brush, sponge, or pen. Being a beginner at this, I choose to start with using the acrylic paint pens. They came UPS from Amazon yesterday, and I can’t wait to break into them. Yes, I’m one of those weirdos that loves pens of all kinds. There’s just nothing like a good pen and painting with them is an even bigger bonus!
If you’re not familiar with this form of crochet, it’s the making of plush little stuffed animals and such. There are patterns all over the internet on how to make the latest cutie, Baby Yoda. It seems like people were making them before he was even available on the new Disney Channel. Right now, I have a few patterns downloaded that I think are adorable and will have to go through my leftover yarn supply to see which one to make first.
In between all of these little projects, I plan to keep up with my gnome making. Right now, I have some plans for a St. Paddy’s Day Gnome using the glittery shamrocks I found at Hobby Lobby the other day.
These are the pens I purchased = )
