Gorjuss Teacup Adventure! 

April 24, 2015 at 11:44 am 10 comments

Despise not liking the Gorjuss range a few years ago, I do rather like them now. I know I love bright colours- but I went all soft and subtle here..

If you look closely you’ll see that the teacup ( that’s she’s floating on the ocean in!) is actually a mini shaker. By using some acetate sewn on the base, I could add some glitter and sequins. 

It’s coloured with Artiste markers and this is the set produced for Santoro by docrafts-


I bought my set ( alright, SETS!) from The Range. At the moment they’re 3 sets for £10 which, when each set is £5.95, us pretty great value.

They’ve also got £2 off dog food..but I’m digressing. 😉.

I am trying to get organised- gleefully still throwing away things..lots of unwanted crafty gear going too. Do pop round if you’re local and grab some- all I’d ask for is a donation for a charity.

Just have to make sure none of the kids favourite plastic toys or kids themselves end up with the garbage too 😋.

See you soon!

    Your coloring is absolutely beautiful, Keren. And that you turned the teacup into a shaker is absolutely brilliant. Even though I have to admit that the bunny looks a bit like a zombie with the stitch line going through his face 🙂
