i’ve been keeping up with my painting a week challenge, above is “spring”
& “lock” i used micron pens & watercolors for these !
& an ultra-simple project — my mom sent me this phone case that she thought i would like & i decided to make it myself since it seemed so simple! this martha stewart gold paint is really pigmented & not too expensive
i’ve also sped through my cancun lacy top! one of the pieces is blocking & one is just at the cast off edge. i’m totally in love with the yarn i’m using: blue heron rayon metallic. i bought it at vogue knitting live a few years ago, the little specks of gold are perfect !
ever since going to help pick out a wedding dress with one of my closest friends i’ve been obsessed with the magical, seemingly weightless metallic embroidery on tulle. i don’t really have experience in embroidery but that didn’t stop me from gathering up the supplies to try it out! this is my first foray, i just tried out some stitches this time but next time i’m going to draw up my design first. the backing will dissolve in water once i finish !
i was lucky enough to take a trip to cancun, mexico this month! i spent a lot of the time knitting this (soon-to-be lacy summer top) with incredible views !
also in mexico, we went on a day trip to the mayan ruins & i was absolutely kicking myself for not bringing my watercolors but couldn’t resist doing this quick sketch (with a hotel pen on scrap paper . . .) of chichen itza, one of the new wonders of the world !
