Keycaps and then some

It’s been far too long since I’ve posted anything.

The move is complete. We’re still adapting to the house. I am glad to report that living together is good and something we’re both enjoying. The cool fall weather certainly help. This house gets crazy hot inside when it’s hot outside.

I’ve been making a few things. A class about painting with alcohol ink led me to give it a try on keycaps. I had some varying results.

 

My tiny alcohol-ink landscape.
Alcohol ink design that may or may not look like a flower.
I just have to think “avocado” when I see this alcohol-ink painted keycap.
As if there’s any doubt that this octopus keycap would be my favorite.

 

Here’s a marbled keycap. I quite enjoy marbling keycaps. I have learned that solid spaces are way prettier when marbled than pieces that have open designs. I’m not articulating this well. Let’s just say that there will be examples to come.

 

I haven’t done much bead embroidery this summer. This focal piece is waiting to be finished. I wonder how long it will take to find the right home. It was my first time beading with crystal cup chain. I’m eager to do more of that! And, just more bead embroidery in general.

Lastly, to bring it back around to alcohol ink, here’s a sheet of yupo paper and some stenciled alcohol ink. It’s kind of ghostly and lovely. Must break out more stencils and alcohol ink.
