I’ve got crafter’s block right now. Last week I was feeling all inspired to do creative things, but this week it’s like all that creativity & motivation went out the window. It might be because we’re getting ready to move into a place with enough room for me to have my own (non-dungeon) studio. I think I’m so busy fantasizing about that well-lit space, my creativity is all consumed.
I wanted to do something crafty today, even if it was little. I was looking back through my archives to see if I could get any inspiration that way & came across a tutorial I did a couple years ago on how to make limited edition prints by using a styrofoam plate. It’s a super easy & very fun process. I got all excited to make a greeting card or something, then realized there were no styrofoam plates in my house. There was, however, a 15lb bag of potatoes on our kitchen counter, so I snagged one & started carving with my Xacto.
Bunting & triangles have been sort of a thing on the interwebs & I admittedly love triangles. What a great shape! They’re even more fun when they’re irregular. So I made a series of triangles. Bunting, if you will. I thought it’d be cute to do a little bunting banner & then write a message on the dried triangles. Great idea if you have high-quality printing ink. The speedball ink I used for the potato print is chalky & not water-resistant. It was more than a little annoying to work with. Needless to say this is a very limited run print; a run of 1.
