I made an exception recently and purchased a set of three round lid basket kits from Nancy Enge and set aside a whole day to tackle them. It actually took around an hour for each so Nancy gets a big, fat 10 out of 10 from me. I've made the flip-up lids from the kit but left them off because I just can't decide how I will use the baskets.
Such pretty colours 😃 Since Nancy is currently filling her Etsy shop with new and exciting designs, I don't need much persuasion to buy more kits so that I can have both lid-on and lid-off variations 😊
I told you in my last post that I had been experimenting with laserable rubber. I'm keen to try everything, especially if it improves the things I can make. Although I bought a sheet described as 'low odour', it still STINKS when it's being etched. Not quite tyre bonfire, but enough to make Hubby spray air freshener into the room as he passed.
I designed a file in Inkscape of the first miniature-type logo I found, (since I thought this would be a good use of the material)
Imagine you sell your miniatures. Now imagine your very own logo stamped on it 😆😆😆😆😆
(TSS - I'm sending you this stamp to play with)
I think they would look pretty sweet on miniature advertising crates too. Ah, the possibilities are endless 😊
Fear not if you don't have access to a laser or a laser cutting company and want to give it a go. The alternative is soft cut lino blocks which are available from most art shops.
Just a word of warning if you decide to get some laser cut and if you design them yourself - make sure you flip your design vertically. Don't do this....
Yep, I didn't flip it. In my case, this stamp should actually read 100% - Genuine - Dumb arse! 😄
Enjoy the rest of your weekend
