Octopus Crown!

This is kind of weird... ( not that other stuff I do isn't but this is out there..) I signed up to do a craft swap that was called "Crowns or other lofty headgear swap" which I was really excited about. I got this really interesting partner who is an art student in Nevada doing all of these really cool monsters and stuff. She also said that she liked tentacles and tree frogs.. I really didn't know where this was going to end up but I started to do a bunch of sketches that were so crazy It would be ridiculous if I didn't follow through with them.  SO This was the result of all of my ideas and sketches put together...

An Octopus sitting on a crown with diamonds for suckers! yay!

Embroidered Sideshow Mermaid!

Here is yet another swap that I did! This was an embroidery swap in which my partner liked side shows and nautical things. So I was inspired by the ole sailor jerry tattoos and drew out this mermaid, I also framed her up like she was in a sideshow poster... I did it all in blue monochrome. The scales are called a lazy daisy chain. (I think...) I am still learning a lot about embroidery but the more I do, the more I love it!
