Art - Emma Watson Pencil Portrait

Hello everyone!!
                 Recently I got General's charcoal pencil set and Staedtler triplus 776 as a birthday gift. I was excited to try my new tools. The following is the scanned image of pencil portrait for Emma Watson as Hermione Granger. 

               The portrait took more than 20 hours to complete over 5 days. I enjoyed sketching it though it was a challenging one. The pencils used are : 
  • Drawing pencils - Camlin and Apsara 2B, 4B, 6B
  • Charcoal pencils - General's 2B, 4B, 6B
  • Mechanical pencil - Staedtler triplus 776
               Hope you all liked the pencil portrait. Stay tuned for more!

Featured - Making Crochet bag by Eli Salvans

About the Artist

        Eli Salvans lives in Sabadell (Barclona, Spain). She studied history of art at university, (Univesitat Autònoma de Bellaterra). She likes painting, drawing, sewing, knitting, recycling, embroidery, all kinds of crafts, photography, literature and likes to try new ideas. She is 50 years old and virtually self-taught, for all.  But her grandmother taught her basic points for crochet. In spite of not having a family history in the world of art, from younger stage she demonstrated her interest in the Plastic Expression, that with the time evolved into her own personal style.

Making the Crochet bag

              Eli makes very beautiful crochet bags. Here she is sharing the step by step process. It is an interesting DIY, a must try for those who know crochet.
She spins the used wool into yarns. You can use new wool too.

This is the design layout for the bag. It shows how small hexagons will be joined together.

This is a simple crochet hexagon. You can choose your own inner pattern.

After stitching all the hexagons together, she attached the handles to the main body.

Now the inner lining cloth and the zip are attached

A beautiful pink ribbon bow and small pink beads give the bag a trendy look.
