Four Pouches Done

I finished them... yay for me! :)

I actually got them done on Thursday but on Friday we visited my sister and yesterday I spent a good part of the day taking photos of them. :)

Those photos will be used when I list the pouches in the store but first I need to edit them. Mostly that means adding contrast, resizing and sharpening them but it takes a surprisingly long time.

So I will show more and hopefully better pictures of them in a few days when I start adding them to the shop.

Until then I thought I could show the scanned Before & After pictures!

Sunday Pixies!

Well it's been longer then I planed since my last post... but I have been sick tho since last Sunday so I guess that is kind of a valid excuse. :)

Pixie magnet no. 25
Pixie magnet no. 24

I'm starting to feel better now tho but this means that I haven't been very creative this last week. Or well... not very but I have not been slacking of completely. I'm almost done painting four of the black pouches from last post, just needs to add the last touches before I can start sewing them.

And I have edited some of the photos I took of the newest pixie magnets and you are seeing two of them today.

New things have been added to the shop and hopefully more will come during the week!

Work in progress - black pouches

Work in progress
Colours will be next!

Today I don't have so much to tell really but I wanted to show you what I have been working on.
Seven black pouches of sixteen that I have sketched out.

I always start with a white soft drawing pencil for the sketch and then add the white fabric-paint to refine my sketch before even thinking about the colours. Once the colours have been added (how much depends on each pouch) I add the final touches with the white fabric pen then fix the colours with the iron.
Then I will start sewing.

I ordered some more zippers early in the week and got them on Thursday and this time I got some more colours. Three meters of turquoise zipper with clasps and two shades of red (also with clasp), I did get some more black too. Was going to order pink or purple too but I think I'll get them another time.

Hopefully I will finish some of them this week and I also have a new batch of white pouches in the making as well.

Work in progress, black pouches
I have more motives sketched out but I will finish these first.

Today I took some photos of my ACEO drawings that I will be adding to my shop in the coming weeks.

Every one of the drawings is original but I have or will reuse some of the characters for different things, like on the pouches.

I'm also thinking of maybe make them into digital stamps but I'm not sure yet. Let me know if you have any suggestions.
