Decorate Your Own Pouch/Pencil Case

In this new video tutorial, I am showing you how you can decorate your own blank fabric pouch or pencil case.

I have kept this one simple but you can most definitely embellish even more by stitching 3-D embellishments.

New Video – There Is Beauty in All Things

This is my new video, now available to watch on Youtube and Vimeo.
A good excuse to play with the hard pastels set I got from my sister and brother-in-law for my birthday. My birthday is only tomorrow and, really I should have waited, but it was just too tempting and I gave in! πŸ˜‰ I absolutely love them, and am now considering getting the 48-set some day, once I am more familiar with them.

New Mandala Video

I’m going back to mandalas for this video, being a little bit more precise than I normally would – the compass and ruler are out!

The theme for this mandala is gratitude, such an important part of our lives (well, I think it should anyway!), when it is so easy to take things for granted and so many people in this world think that everything is owed to them and don’t appreciate what they have.

I hope you enjoy.

Happy creating πŸ™‚

Back on Lifebook 2018

After 20 weeks of starting Lifebook 2018, and losing track after 3 weeks, I have decided that it was time to pick the lessons up again. I’m not doing all lessons, just picking and choosing at the moment as free time is always a rare thing for me.

I have been inspired full blast with weeks 5 and 6 lessons, and decided to have a go this bank holiday weekend.

Inspired by Juna Biagioni’s lesson, The Custodian (I only did a portrait in her style of drawing; I decided to leave the textured background bit for another project):

I’m really pleased with the result. I used pencil bars for this, but, after having so much fun creating a portrait/face this way, I really want to get a set of hard pastels like Juna uses for this project as it looks like it would allow me greater smudgeability.

Inspired by Tamara Laporte’s lesson A Heart Full of Happy:

More to come when I get time to play…

New Video – Monochromatic Inktense
