little bit late, but better late than never, right? I want to show you the project I made for the whiff of joy challenge blog this week. I took more and better pics so you will get a better look.
The challenge was "coffee and cream". I made a cart with bookmarks:
The images are coloured with oilpencils and a kind of alcohol rubber to make the colours smear. Love this new medium and it's especially great for colouring animals, don't you think? The shapes are cut out with nestabilities and I coloured a plain white silkribbon with "caramel" promarker to make it match the animals perfectly. The sentiment on the front of the cart worked great for the theme aswell.
The bookmarks are wrapped around grill sticks. I put some doublesided tape on top and bottom of the sticks to make the bookmarks stick. It took me a while to figure out how to make them stand up. It was the best solution I think.
If you make something inspired by this let me know so I can come and take a look. If you want to know how to make something like this yourself - let me know and I'll make a tutorial. It's not hard to make this yourself and it would make a great going-away gift!
