Finished the last of the tiny mitered squares today; all 64! If that’s not a bucket of joy, I don’t know what is!
I’ve started joining them together into squares of 4, which is probably going to be the most tedious part of the process. This is because *apparently* I’m going to have to weave in 4 little ends per big square join UGH. I know it’s not a lot but I am so tired of ends after the first blankie! So far, 2 down & 14 more to go!
My blue maze is complete! It reminded me of ocean colors, so there you have it. I feel like I really learned a lot about brush and water control during this piece. I also learned a lot about color mixing for blue palettes!
If you’re interested in purchasing and/or commissioning my artwork, please feel free to stop by my Etsy shop “AmberRoseRules”!
A little progress report on my blue maze. I’ve been experimenting with the new liner brush I bought. Dreamy so far!
Hi All! I had basically abandoned this blog for a variety of reasons last year. Primarily, that I wasn’t as engaged as I thought I was going to be for how much time I was putting into it. Also, my laptop is old and dysfunctional and it never occurred to me that “there’s an app for that” lol
Fast forward to my ever-growing deep dissatisfaction with Instagram (my primary social media). I tried Ello for a good month–a good idea, but basically a pile of trash…and then it dawned on me…I might have a more rewarding experience on WordPress if I actually engage in the communities I’m deeply invested in–art, crochet, ceramics, memery. So moving forward, this blog is going to take a sharp turn for look what I can do! I will still probably post reviews, since I more or less do that on Instagram anyways as part of the “me” experience.
