Hello my crafty friends! How are you doing? We are melting here. It's soooooo hot!!! Even though we have all the windows (and curtains) closed it's still around 28 degrees Celsius in here during the day. So just imagine the heat outside (it's around 37 degrees)! Trust me, you don't want to leave the apartment unless it's *really* necessary. It's supposed to cool down a little bit over the next couple of days, but not for long. Next week should be hot, hot, hot again. *sigh*
I haven't been doing much crafting lately - I think even my mojo needs a break from all the heat - but I can show you a gift bag I made a (short) while back, but haven't posted it on the blog yet.
I decorated this bag with different papers from my stash. As you can see I did a lot of stitching too - all by hand (took me forever!!). Doily, lace, pearls, flowers and buttons all came from my stash. Image is from Whimsy stamps and is called Autumn happiness.
I coloured the image with Promarkers and Faber Castell pencils. Small butterflies were made with my craft punch.
Ok, so this is it for today. Have a wonderful day and enjoy the sunny days! xx
I would like to enter my bag to the following challenges:
Papertake weekly: Anything goes
