Today I played around with GIMP, trying to make interesting star-like things, and doing LOTS of tweaking tweaking tweaking. It's kind of hard to stop tweaking once you start, because you can never be sure that the next image won't be better than the previous one.

Yes, I've been participating in [livejournal.com profile] naarmamo this year, but I haven't been posting about it (apart from the comments in the comm itself) because there hasn't been anything to show before.

But now, prepare to be pic-spammed!

I'm doing a NaArMaMo album on my LJ - might as well use the scrapbook since I have a permanent account there. But I'm posting on DW and crossposting to LJ. (LJ's old scrapbook was much better than their current crappy one, but hey, it still hosts images)

NAARMAMO

NAtional ARt MAking MOnth has begun again! Though it's actually international.
The idea is to make (a piece of) "art" every single day of this month, where "art" is as broad and inclusive as possible. To be fun and creative whether one is "artistic" or not. Doesn't mean you can't be artistic, either. Some people use it as an opportunity to go all thematic with their art. Others use it as a time to learn new things/techniques.

But, basically, do something every day, post in the comments, and admire other people's work.

(Hey, [personal profile] vilakins are you doing it this year?)

Finished! Crochet that I started for NaArMaMo.

In regard to my health, my guts STILL hate me. (sigh)

And HAPPY BIRTHDAY in advance for [personal profile] tptigger. May there be bouncing and happiness!

For the last day of the NAtional ARt MAking MOnth, as I usually do, I made a banner for [livejournal.com profile] naarmamo.

Since this is the second-last day of [livejournal.com profile] naarmamo, I thought I'd give a snapshot of my progress on things I started for NaArMaMo but haven't finished.

Plus one more thing that I have finished.

I've been playing with my new toy, a deluxe spool-knitting gizmo, which I bought on Friday. I don't think it will be quite as portable as my crochet stuff, because it doesn't appear to be quite as amenable to shoving into a bag when one's bus stop arrives; it's designed to be put down on a table when one needs to pause in working. That's okay; it being the weekend, I did get quite a bit of working in.
there be jewellery and pictures )

I acquired a glue gun this week. I thought it might be useful to glue stuff for an impatient person like me. Particularly gluing jewellery stuff. So today I tried it.
there be craftiness )
kerravonsen: Fiction/Poetry/Art: it's cheaper than therapy (cheaper-than-therapy)
More craft, that is. Today I managed to do the finishing touches on the corkscrew-spiral crochet necklace I've been working on for a while. There was a point when it felt like it would never get finished, because there were a LOT of stitches to do, and the yarn was really thin and the crochet hook was really small (1.25mm), and I would sometimes get cramps in my hands because of that. But it is now DONE.
more stuff, and a picture )

I have sent my SSHG Exchange story to the mods! Yay!

I'm thinking I might do [livejournal.com profile] naarmamo this year after all, since [personal profile] vilakins suggested that I didn't have to stick to really small projects, just so long as I did something every day and posted about it. There's certainly a lot of art-y stuff I am itching to do after buying all those craft books earlier in the year. Like teaching myself crochet. And then bead crochet. And wire work. So I might do that.

Still havent seen HBP2. So I'm avoiding discussion of it at the moment. Planning to see it with my brother on Sunday.

Voting for the finish-a-thon has finished, but I'm not going to post the results until tomorrow.... ZzzzZzzz

And [livejournal.com profile] naarmamo is almost over. This one has whizzed past, and I did cool stuff! Here's today's, which is an emendation of yesterday's.
Liberator
kerravonsen: colourful circles: "Cool" (cool)
[livejournal.com profile] naarmamo Day 26: the first of the icon requests.
Yay Yay
A happy icon made for [livejournal.com profile] jthijsen
kerravonsen: stone egg on wood: "Simplicity" (simplicity)
Today's Art is revealing the icons I made for [livejournal.com profile] icon_style earlier this month. Yes, I think it counts!

[livejournal.com profile] naarmamo continues; here be Day 21. This one is really cool, I think, made from scratch, digital stuff; a combination of a few techniques, so I made a tutorial too.
Black Sun
I actually did this yesterday, though I finished up the tutorial today.

Well, okay, so nobody wants to do the Pay it Forward meme. (sigh)

However, I'm still doing [livejournal.com profile] naarmamo this month, so, in the spirit of the meme, I'll still do stuff for people, though a bit more limited. Here's my offer: the first 3-5 people to comment with a request, I will make an icon for them. I will definitely do the first three, but I may do up to five. No strings attached.

More [livejournal.com profile] naarmamo. This time another green bookmark, of a slightly different design, which I finished last night. I'm pleased because I managed to colour-correct the scan so that it was the proper colour.

[livejournal.com profile] naarmamo continues. Today's Art is more messing around with following tutorials. This one was for water droplets on a surface:

I actually did this yesterday. Now, if only someone would write a story based on this...
