Whimsical Art Weekend

I crocheted another pug finger puppet for my etsy store.

Then I crocheted a teddy bear tape measure for Melanie.
She creates fabulous teddy bears which you can see in her etsy store, ShopMoeMoe.

and... I created more pages in my altered book. I love using textured papers.

I used my handcarved stamps, acrylic paint and paper scraps.

For the back of the book, I used only textured papers and a small envelope I created by folding and gluing one of the sheets.

I have lots more to create in the center of the book so please stay tuned. :)

Nevis said... taught yourself how to crochet? Hmm...I hadn't considered teaching myself how to do it, but I guess I could. Is it hard?
