Anyone for Su Doku?
No, not me, I don't like number games,
scrabble and other words games yes, but nothing with numbers!
When I saw this set of Su Doku in a charity shop
a few years ago, I had no intention of ever playing a game with them,
but just knew they'd come in handy one day.
Cue - The Altered Dominos & Other Altered Game Pieces
group on Flickr.
The current swap on there is to
" Create up to ten charms and receive ten. They have to be made using a game piece
and have something on it that makes you think of Spring"
I wanted to use wire and the 'gizmo' wire coiling tool
to create some flowers with a gemstone in their centre.
Although it's an easy tool to use (in theory!),
I think I need more practice. However I was reasonably
pleased with how the flowers turned out.
First though, I painted one side of the Su Doku counters
white (to hide the numbers)
and then attached book text with Liquitex.
The flowers (or maybe butterflies!) were then
stuck onto the counters with E6000 adhesive.
The gemstones I used are Carnelian,
except the blue one in the middle of the photo
which is Blue Chalcedony
(no, I'd never heard of them before either!)
Flower or butterfly?
Can't wait to see what charms I get back in return now!
Thanks for looking and I promise to try and get
round to see some of my blogging friends' blogs soon!
