Today i tried to make little book. This was inspired by http://make-a-book-a-day.blogspot.com/. She made a book everyday for one year. She finished this task today. Congrats 🙂
A other pop tab miniature. This time a chick. Glued the beak standing up this time. I like this beak better then the beak on the pinquin bird.
This a very popular item to make with pop tabs. You find many youtube tutorials about. After the most popular items are gone, my creativity really has to kick in. But for the moment i can use it for an off and not really thinking myself creative day.
I like doing qoute post card. This qoute i so a few times posted by people on facebook. I kind of like it.
I used the pop tabs as kind of a template to draw around. I used a soft grey watercolor as background and a red watercolor for the “one of a kind” pop tab. I did this card twice. The first time i misspelled limited. I wrote “”limeted” on the first and only saw that mistake after i was finished with it.
The pop tab handflowers i made for this project are now for sale in my shop. I took me the best part of the morning to get photo’s etsy like enough to put them up in my shop.
Back to painting the pop tabs again and making the miniatures. Here is a pop tab black cat. Still like my fishy from a few days back the most.
Again a new experiment. I tried a technique called tabistry. Here is a link to the blog about it http://tabistry.blogspot.com/ . You also find a the etsy mini on her site where you can buy tutorials on how to do it. I bought the basic tutorial and here is my first try. I made a weaving mistake in the left corner. Also i a going to try think of an other solution for the weaving around the patch of pop tabs. I think it can be done more straight.
