2015 WIP Wednesday #6

  

I have so many crochet, knit, and beading wips that are hibernating right now.  And I have found a new creative obsession:  art journaling.

I have been pinning and searching and oohing and aahing on Pinterest.
I bought a sketchbook and I have been experimenting with some new techniques.  Here is the cover page I created yesterday.

This sketchbook is now my new favorite wip.  I wonder how long it will take me to fill all the pages.
What are you working on this week?

-I have wanted to do this with my earbuds for a long time, so long that I'm not even sure if the earbuds are worth the work anymore :)  Maybe I should buy new earbuds and then crochet them a cover.

FO: Baby Bear Hat

Pattern:  Baby Bear Hat
Hook:  K
Yarn:  Lion Brand Homespun
This hat was so easy to make.  I actually finished it in July, but just took pictures today.  I adore the little ears.  This is part of a gift for my husband's coworker who just had a little baby girl.  I hope they love it.

Dex vs. Bunzo - Diva Challenge 217

This week's challenge was a duo-tangle using Dex and Bunzo.  The Diva chose these tangles to commemorate her upcoming 35th birthday (Dex has 3 letters, Bunzo has 5).  I decided to further commemorate the Diva's 35th birthday by using String #35 from the Tanglepatterns website.  I really like this one.
Did you try the Diva's Challenge this week?

Brella Kitty - Diva Challenge 216

This is my entry for the Diva's challenge this week.
The challenge this week was to use the tangle Brella by Bunny Wright, CZT.  My cat was sitting on my legs and inspired me to draw a cat shape for this Zentangle-inspired art.  I filled the cat with Brella, the filled the cushion with Bubbles.  Then I filled the background with AHH and Zinger.  I am posting a little late this week, but better late than never, right?
