DIY: drip dyed snowflakes

I recently purchased these beautiful snowflakes from Poketo, a fabulous online shop based out of Los Angeles. I’ve been admiring all the dip dye projects I’ve seen around the internet and wanted to try one of my own. After a trip to the local art supply store, Opus, I raced home to attempt to dip dye my new decorations. I brought home two bottles, one white and one gold, of Rowney Acrylic Ink. It came in so many amazing colours too. I might have to go back for more. Because this acrylic ink has droppers in the lid, I decided to forego the paint brush I had planned to use and dripped the ink onto my snowflakes. Thanks to a discussion with my friend Tan, of Squirrelly Minds, I decided to call this DIY drip dyed, rather than dip dyed.

Happy December

It’s that time of year again. I’ve had my white lights up for a while, but I’m adding more and more to get ready for the holiday season. I just bought myself a new camera lens, these are the first shots I’ve taken with it. I’m super happy with it and can’t wait to learn how to use it properly. My creative juices are flowing and I’ve even done my first DIY! The post will be up tomorrow. It’s been fun getting back to creating and posting here. Thanks to those of you who’ve stuck around. I really appreciate it.

I’ve got a virtual table at the current Poppytalk Handmade Holiday Market. Please drop by and have a look.
