Latch Hook Fairy

Day 365 – Latch Hook Fairy

I wanted my final fairy of this challenge to be special. I revisited an old favourite pastime from my childhood – latch hook.

I spent ages trying to create my own pattern and struggled trying to figure out how many different coloured wools I would need before I eventually came across this website which was so easy to use and straightforward and helped turn a jpeg image into a proper pattern and advised me how many colours I would need/how many strands of each wool I would need etc. It was very helpful although I did tweak the design a bit to accentuate some details.

I must admit that I have been working on this for a bit more than just today but I did finish it today! I am very happy with how it turned out.

Mirrored Fairy

Day 357 – Mirrored Fairy

I drew today’s fairy using HB pencil onto an A5 envelope before cutting them out using scissors.

I intended to place one cut-out onto the wooden surface, but actually really liked them both together in a mirror image.

 

Lino Stamp Fairy

Day 332 – Lino Stamp Fairy

I used a lino stamp cutting kit for today’s fairy. I drew the silhouette in pencil on the lino circle and proceeded to carve the background using the carving tool.

I used watercolour paints to add the colour and stamped it onto a page of my sketchpad.
