Today is Luxembourgs National Day and last night we were watching the fireworks until midnight with our good friends Lena and Peter. Earlier on in the day, they'd got me out on an 8km run which I was really happy to have achieved but my legs are feeling it. Today I'm more than a little tired!! So it's good that today is a lazy day with nothing to do but sit in the sun and craft!
The Inchy by Inch challenge this week is Celtic Symbols. I was already familiar with Celtic knots but it wasn't until I researched the subject that I discovered that some Celtic Symbols were less complicated and quite straight forward.
You can see some more examples here http://inchybyinch.blogspot.com/
For my inchy I'd actually tried to draw freehand the symbol onto the background, then trace around it with a Versamark pen to emboss it, but somehow it just didn't work so small and left me with a bit of a messy end result. I decided to cut out the image I'd been using to trace and placed it on a circular background to hide the mess of the embossing! The result isn't too bad and to finish it off I used a brad in the centre.
