The Craft Swap – Part Two b!

As promised – the final part of my craft swap adventures!! Here are pictures of the items at their new homes:

The Pikachu was painted in acrylic on canvas for Turqoizyoshi, and the PSIV Demi keyholder was cross stitched on 14ct aida (the frame, mount and hooks I made myself ^^) for Bamiyan.

I had a lot of fun making these, Turqoiz and Bamiyan seem to be happy so it’s been a win for everyone 😀

So…now I think I can finally say the craft swap is over for me. I think it’s been a success, and I look forward to September’s mini swap, as well as future big swaps ^^


Game-based art (while I’m working on new stuff!)

Good day! Sorry it has been a while, I’ve had an unreal amount of stuff to do. I’m still hard at work on the craft swap… and as much as I’d like to be able to post about it here I can’t – but I can tell you I’m making good progress and should have it sent off in the next couple of weeks. When my partner receives it then I can freely post about it.

While I was sorting through some of my stuff, I took some pictures of the pieces I did for the art courses I took at college. I was very lucky to have a tutor that pretty much gave me free rein to do video game based stuff – as long as it fit into the assignment. Thanks Olwyn – you helped me produce some decent work that I’m actually pretty proud of.

So, while you lot wait for the craft swap to be over, I thought you’d like to have a peek at my past works! Most are game based pictures but there’s a couple that aren’t. There’s quite a few images here so today it’s in a gallery format – click the thumbnails for larger images.
