my creative space

My creative space has been mobile this week: this is me making the starfish for my mobile whilst waiting for hospital appointments. (at least they were only an hour late today - it did give me time to get all the points done and begin the sewing together).


And in other creative news - I finished the clown fish! Woohoo...


So now I've got a seahorse and a hermit crab to go (once I finish the starfish). And maybe a seagull and some seaweed... My big question at the moment though is - what colour to do the seahorse? The hermit crab will have a creamy/brown shell and a red crabby body, the clown fish colour is mostly accurate, the starfish is a mix of purple and blue, the jelly fish is grey with white tentacles... The seahorse? brown and cream (somewhat accurate)? or brightly coloured (given there are already some neutral-y colours in the others)? I just don't know...

Where has your creative space been this week?

Love the clown fish. So cute! Maybe bright colours for the seahorse if you already have neutrals? Accuracy is overrated anyway ;) Looking forward to seeing the finished mobile!

The clown fish looks so very cute. I think a lovely bright colour for the the seahorse would look really sweet along with the bright coloured clown fish. :)
