My Creative Space - More brooches








I've been making some more brooches... playing around with some ideas. The fimo ideas are starting to come together but I do have to get better at the ol' fimo manipulation. Those dints on the black + white cloud are not a good look ;) Anyway, it's all fun. Happy Creative Spaces everyone! You can find more creative spaces at Kirsty's here.

i like the circle of colour/texture! the rest are cool too, but that one far exceeds on the cool-o-meter :)

I really like the black and white cloud, dints just give extra character.

gretchenmist said...

so clever!
there was a photo that i wished i could have taken this morning for you {sorry, didn't have the camera on me}, of the concrete in dark grey and the adjoining concrete fence, in light grey and a fallen flower in bright pink red . . . the lines and patches and bursts of colour reminded me of your brooch designs :)

Love the green and black combo. That's twice today I have read about Fimo and have no idea what it is. Will have to look it up!

I like the fimo-felt (feltmo??!!) combo and the colours. Have fun working on these!

Nikki Cardigan said...

Good for you for taking on a new project, out of the comfort zone.... and for being prepared that things might not be perfect (in your eyes)... yet! They are very cute and the black, green and white look great together.

Lauren said...

Oh yay I love the green!! These are great, Kylie :)

Kirsty said...

These are wonderful Kylie. I love your brooches.

caramela said...

love the use of fimo! Is that a cloud shape that inspired the black and white one? Just adorable- Lovely work Kylie-
I can see sharing a studio space with you and me doing my small ATC's and you doing your brooches and lots of coffee in between- hmmm-

You have such a playful and creative approach to this brooch-making caper. I love it Kylie. And wow, fimo, that takes me back. I used to make fimo things but always felt like I never quite achieved my fimo potential :-)

Tammy James said...

Oh Kylie the cloud is my fave! Great colours

Clair said...

Hey Kylie - these are looking awesome. I have a couple of Fimo tips though, hopefully they might help :)

1. Roll your Fimo on a ceramic tile - that way you can put it straight into the oven and it saves you having to 'lift' the clay and get fingerprints in it.

2. Use a couple of ice-lolly sticks (stick a few together for extra height) on either side of the clay when you're rolling - this means that the clay will stay the same thickness all the across.

Good luck with it - I can't wait to see what you come up with next!

Cindy said...

Your use of colour and design are wonderful Kylie! Can I ask, what size approx are the brooches?

elk said...

These are great Kylie, I love the red ones in particular. bet you're getting excited about coming to Europe...

woollywotnots said...

Your brooches are works of art, Kylie. I love them. I also love the idea of fabric vases in your post from yesterday. Cheerio, Woollywotnots.

I love the patchworky nature of your brooches Kylie. They are beautiful

Francesca said...
