I'm part of an unofficial team of Etsy Sellers and we call ourselves The Daily Sweets.
We have decided that we will select one new craft each month and attempt it as a group. We are not voting on the best, there is no competition involved. It is merely an attempt to challenge and inspire ourselves and possibly find a new avenue for creating that we love.
This month's challenge, February, is Crochet. This is something I've not tried and I'm very excited. I've decided first to try a chain and simple single stitch using tutorials and videos I've found online. And I will proceed from there. We also have a bonus challenge this month of embellishing a mug with quotes or designs.
Our January challenge was creating an ACEO (a small art card that must measure 2.5 x 3.5 inches and we could use any form of media). I waited until the last few weeks and finally decided to use acrylics and gave myself one hour on the timer to create my project without allowing myself to become too critical of the outcome. It is far from perfect but I will pretend to be okay with that. I found it very enjoyable and could easily of continued working on it for hours.
Below is my ACEO for January's Challenge. If you'd like to take part, or find out a bit more about The Daily Sweets, visit our new Blog Site: THE DAILY SWEETS
