Art

 

I’ve been working steadily on my granny square blanket while watching Arrow and Game of Thrones. I already need to restock on some colors and will have to make a purchase soon through Deramores. I love how fast their shipping is — it only takes about a week for my order to get here from the UK, which is quicker than certain other websites I order from that are based in the US.

I’ve been working a lot on my art lately with the idea of selling prints and more stickers in my shop. Sailor Moon has been inspiring my drawings lately, and I have been practicing my coloring while eagerly awaiting the new series.

 

 

I used Akashiya Sai watercolor brush pens (I need to get the entire set — I love using them) and Copic Markers to color the pictures, and Micron pens to ink them.

Hope you all have a lovely Monday. x

Granny Stripe Blanket Tah-Dah!

I’m finally making a little tah-dah post about my granny stripe blanket I finished late last month. I’m very proud of this blanket as it is the first major crochet project I have finished.

I love how bright the colors are! Bringing my blanket outside made me realize that I need to get started on some spring gardening. I would just love to fill my garden with all of these colors since everything is a bit drab at the moment…

I’m sure the neighbors were wondering why the heck I was outside taking so many pictures of a blanket. πŸ˜›

I could seriously post an endless amount of pictures of this blanket — I am so in love with it. I’ll spare you though. Oh wait, one more… πŸ˜‰

I needed to get a shot of its colorful entirety.

Once again, I used Stylecraft Special DK for my blanket. I love, love, love using this yarn and now find it hard to go back to any other acrylic yarn. ❀

Shop Updates

My crocheting took a bit of a standstill this past week as I’ve been working hard on my shop. I have a new URL now (http://paperelf.co) that redirects to my etsy shop, which I think is pretty nifty.

I restocked a lot of washi tape — mostly new and super cute designs that I’m very excited about.

These are some of my favorites. It’s taking me a bit of effort not to use them for myself!

These stickers are also absolutely adorable and I am happy to have them now available in my shop. I love the vintage feel they have to them, and the illustrations are adorable.

I am also starting to include my own art in my shop like these fun Pokemon-inspired stickers. I hope to make more stickers of my art available soon!

I am finished working for the day so perhaps I’ll pick up my crochet hook and do a few more rounds. I love how bright this blanket is turning out to be. x
