Yay! Thursday and so it’s Crea-cross time.
This week’s prompt is Loud! I’m so curious what you will all come and link! I made a windchime for my terras this week!
Loud… what was I thinking?
So, vlogging isn’t really my thing, so what was I thinking when I put this challenge onto the list? How can you draw ‘loud’.
Crocheting ‘loud’ isn’t really possible, is it?! I was a bit angry with myself, but hey it’s a challenge, isn’t it?!
Than my eye fell on the windchime in my kitchen. It’s the most stupid place for a chime, there’s never any wind and so it makes no sound.
My sister has a large windchime on her porch with bamboo sticks. It makes lots of noise when the wind blows. I love that sound, it is very relaxing. In our student home we had a smaller chime near the window, that one made a lovely tinkling sound.
Cleaning out our old garage at the back for the party of my son in a few weeks, I found those little terracotta pots. Maybe I could turn those into a self-made chime?!
In the craftroom
- 3 terracotta flower pots ( I used small size!)
- acrylic paint in a darker and a ligher color
- (wooden) pearls
Step by step
- paint the terracotta pots with some layers of the dark color
- let it dry
- paint the dandelions on the pots with the lighter paint when it’s dry
- put the pots and the pearls on the string
- hang your windchime
This week Esmeralda of Save The Mama is my co-host and she did some handletter paintings! Go and take a look!
Next week’s prompt is books…. but for now: go loud!
Take care and see you soon
