Day Six – 30 Days of Creativity 2015

Today’s theme was flower so I planned a future embroidery project with a little indirect inspiration from the lovely Dearest Jackdaw. I’ll stitch this up as a bit of embroidery hoop wall art when I can find that embroidery hoop I bought the other day! I know it’s around here somewhere…

Day Five – 30 Days of Creativity 2015

Today’s theme was bats, which is a favourite subject of Sarah, who made the list of themes in the first place! So I made her some teeny laser cut bat earrings…

Day Three – 30 Days of Creativity

Today’s theme is ‘peace’ and whilst I considered going down the peace symbol, dove, olive branch route, in the end I decided to focus on inner peace. ‘Om‘ is often used as a meditation mantra so I combined it with some of my houseplant art as a calming reminder to slow down and take some deep breaths every once in a while. I expect I will lasercut this next time I’m at my cutter, so there might be some jewellery to follow!

Day Two – 30 Days of Creativity 2015

Today’s theme is ‘orange’ so I decided to have a quick attempt at a fabric design. I’d love to get some of my own designs printed on fabric (I’ve been gazing wistfully at Spoonflower for literally years), so as I’m still learning Adobe Illustrator, I whipped this up in Inkscape instead.



Day One – 30 Days of Creativity 2015

Today’s theme was trees so I went with a lasercut leaf theme, based on elm leaves. I couldn’t decide whether to ink the centre vein on each of them to make it stand out a bit more, but I erred on the side of Nature and kept it subtle in the end.

30 Days of Creativity – 2015



You might remember that a few years ago, before I got busy with study and training and work and life, that I participated in the 30 Days of Creativity project (twice). The basic premise of the project is to create something – large, small, ambitious, simple, cheap, expensive – every day for a month.

I created some quite varied items!

Superhero mask   Raincloud   Pikachu cross stitch
Manly friendship bracelet   Pompom giving a weird look   Becky Button logo - laser cut

The original creators of the project seem to have disappeared, and I really need to get back into being creative, so my friend Lovely Sarah and I decided to do our own 30 Days of Creativity. I asked her to come up with the themes to prevent any biased choices from me (Day 1: Buttons, Day 2: Buttons, Day 3: Buttons etc). As before I may choose not to follow the theme that day, although it was more of a challenge when I did, back in 2012.
