Have you enjoyed these pride flag posts? I was learning so much as I created them, you are never too old to learn! I know there are many more flags, but these are my final 2.

Today I am sharing the Intersex Pride flag and the Drag Pride flag inspired pieces.

Ace pride dots

Today I am sharing the Aromatic Pride flag, the Agender Pride flag and the Genderqueer Pride flag inspired pieces.

Even more Pride flag inspired pieces.

Heart shaped dot mandala using the colours from the Aromatic Pride flag – dark green, light green, white, gray and black.
Round dot mandala using black, gray, white, green white, grey and black. These are the colours of the Agender Pride flag.

I’ve really enjoyed working with these colour schemes, it’s been very interesting trying to make sure that it’s clear which flag I’m working on. I hope that each one is distinct from the others.

Dot mandala using the colours from the Genderqueer Pride flag. This round mandala is purple, white and green.

I really enjoyed adding the purple with the green, these colours work perfectly together πŸ’œπŸ€πŸ’š

Pride Flag colour schemes

More awesome pride flag inspired dot pieces.

Today I am sharing the Asexual Pride flag, the Demisexual Pride Flag and the Non-binary Pride flag inspired pieces.

Round dot work mandala. Using the colours from the Asexual Pride flag black, gray, white and purple.
Heart shaped art piece in the colours of the Demisexual Pride Flag – white, purple and gray with a black arrow.

This is a shining example of what I mentioned last time – these flags contain the same colours, and so I tried to make them a unique as possible. I must say, I really enjoy this colour scheme πŸ’œπŸ’œ

Non-binary Pride Flag inspired dot art mandala. This uses the colours yellow, white, purple and black, just like the flag.

Again, very similar colours which means that the patterns are what gives these pieces their own personality and charm.

More Pride flags

I am sharing the Transgender Pride flag and the Lesbian Pride flag inspired pieces today.

Heart shaped dot mandala. Colours are blue, pink, white, pink, blue – the colours of the Transgender Pride flag.
Round dot mandala using the colours from the Lesbian Pride flag – red, orange, white, light pink and dark pink.

What do you think of all the different patterns? I try really hard to make each one unique πŸ’œ These are similar, but because one is on a heart base, they actually look quite different.

Surprisingly this didn’t make me cross!

I recently completed my first cross stitch project!

I have stayed away from them in the past because of my hands. The lupus and arthritis really affect my hands. I suffer from stiffness, swelling and lots of pain. That’s why I wear my snazzy gloves!

I got this kit from the awesome Spooky Box Club, in one of their incredible subscription boxes.

As with most of my projects currently, I completed this over on Twitch – you should come join us, we have lots of fun! https://www.twitch.tv/squdge_craft

What do you think? It is almost exactly as the pattern, almost!

Close up of the cross stitch hoop. The word Spooky, a bat and several stars are in black thread.

This project took 3 streams to complete in total, this is where I left it after the first stream! πŸ˜‰

Preserved wedding flowers

Another love of mine is part of what started my identification as a memory artist.

Yes, I do make photo albums, but I also preserve flowers, ashes, fur, hair, photos and other items to carry, stand, wear, or hang.

This, however, is a about this stunning wedding bouquet πŸ’œ

How stunning is that?!?! A wonderful mix of pinky/white roses, blue hydrangea, white snowdrops, eucalyptus and other beautiful greenary.

This beautiful bride was hoping for 2 candle holders (imitation candles ONLY!!), and 3 paperweights.

I can’t tell you how well these came out, what do you think?

2 flower filled candle holders
Medium sized oval paper weight filled with flowers
Cube resin with flowers inside.
Large dome resin full of beautiful wedding flowers and greens
The 4 previous images in a grid.
Candle holders top left, oval top right, cube bottom left and sphere bottom right.

I really love how they come out, as did the bride πŸ‘°β€οΈ

Pride is for life, not just for Pride month!

As mentioned in my previous post, I have become seriously addicted to creating dot art.

I have found that dot art is a good calm and relaxing craft and one of the few I’ve been able to do despite my post covid crippling fatigue! πŸ’œ

I also realised that I seem to make rainbow items all year around, not just for Pride 🌈 but, I will have more Pride projects soon!

Here are some of the rainbow pieces I’ve made recently

Pastel Dreams

I have recently discovered dot painting, and to say that I am obsessed is an understatement!! It is so deeply relaxing, well at least once you get past the prep work lol

I discovered this very recently as a low energy craft I can do with long covid fatigue.

I have created a variety of different designs that I will share with you, but today I have a Pride themed piece that I created this weekend and I love it.

http://Www.instagram.com/squdgecraft

This dream catcher is made on a flat canvas with acrylic paint and I think the colours help add to the soft dreamy idea. But obviously, as a member of the LGBTQ+ community, I just HAD to do it rainbow!!!

I’m back!

Hey, I’m finally returning to this blog, sorry for the long absence.

So here is a quick update for you, what’s been going on in my craft world.

Firstly, you know I have a YouTube channel, well I also regularly go live on Twitch!! Come join the fun from 8pm UK time Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday πŸ’œ

YouTube – https://www.youtube.com/c/CreatewithSqudgeCraft

Twitch – https://www.twitch.tv/squdge_craft

So what else? I also started a TikTok!! https://vm.tiktok.com/ZMNd338jV/

So that’s the fun, now for the rest. I’m currently 6 months into long covid…. The fatigue is driving me nuts and craft is the only thing keeping me sane! I’m still struggling with sleeping approx 15 hours a day which makes life difficult.

I am also currently recovering from the 2nd bout of tonsillitis this year!

My health along with losing my nan, who raised me, in January, has made this year and tough and arduous time. I am only just starting to recover from losing her, she was my life and I miss her terribly.

Anywho, that’s a quick update and here is my hope to start adding my projects, both resin and papercraft here soon.

Bye for now, keep crafting πŸ’œπŸ’œ
