My Creative Space

I have been knitting, slowly and not very interestingly, on the green cardigan from a few weeks ago.  Nothing much to show so we'll just move along here.  I will take more photos when it gets a bit more exciting.

What I have also been doing is playing with photo software on my phone.  It is ridiculously amusing.  And creative - sort of :)

This is a bowl of pansies picked by George and floated in a bowl to make me happy :)

This looks like I have been all clever and done a painting, but actually it is just the photo, fiddled with.

This is a Mazey Pretty Things brooch, and a prototype of a new type of brooch that will be forthcoming in due course (ie. when I get it right!)  This one is actually a button, not centred very well, but the real ones will be button brooches, a bit smaller, and hopefully properly centred :)

Then I played around with different effects.  It was fun :)

I hope to do some more knitting this weekend, start some embroidery, and maybe organise some craft books/magazines.  Plus reading, and cooking, and watching TV (oh, and washing and ironing and going to the supermarket and maybe even having conversations with family members!)

I've discovered my new DSLR has in camera editing and can do fancy things too. The one I liked best was to turn a photo into an outline drawing. very neat.

Wow, that does look like a painting. Nice effects with your brooch prototype. Have a nice time this weekend with your crafty activities and green knitting!! Maybe family members will help you with jobs???
