June Fest is on again in our neighbouring town Newbridge. We happened to be in Newbridge one glorious sunny evening and came across the yarn bombing in Liffey Linear Park. It was so enjoyable strolling through the park and taking in all the fun and funky knitted and crocheted pieces that decorated trees, lampposts, railing, benches etc.
Because it was so sunny and bright and I had to take photos on my phone, unfortunately, my photos don't do justice to the installation, but here goes anyway!
The first hint of what was to come was the way the swan statue at the entrance to the park was bedecked in colourful knits.
Well done to whoever yarn bombed this life sized angel!
Crochet flowers were trailing from the flower basked on this lamppost
and the trees along the pathway were full of colour.
There was even a little bit of Christmas to be found with this gingerbread man on his bike
and a snowman was tucked away in a tree decorated with candy canes.
I loved this fun couple
and the aquatic pieces on this lamppost.
If you want to take a breather, near this teacup lamppost with cupcakes and donuts
there is a fabulous bench under a shady tree.
After a little break how about shooting some hoops
or taking a stroll to the end of the park
where some colourful mushrooms had sprouted at the base of this tree?
Flowers, bees and sea life were out in force on the banks of the River Liffey.
I couldn't think of a better placement for this poo emoji
and there were lots more emojis to be found on this lamppost.
After coming home I thought I really must make a card using an emoji die set I picked up on a fun shopping trip last year with my friend Linda.
Die - Emojis die set (Spellbinders)
Stamp - Woodland Creatures (Hero Arts)
I just wanted to make a quick and simple card using one of the emoji dies and because of the way all the trees were decorated in the park I wanted to use some kind of woodgrain on the card. In the end I recycled a piece of card I had saved from packaging.
Hope you enjoyed taking a peek at some of the yarn bombing in Newbridge. It's well worth a visit if you happen to live nearby or even not so nearby :)
