Spring?

After noticing a lot of green themed posts around the Blog land and after wanting to make a sort of terrarium with moss and lichen for quite some time I satisfied myself with this little idea:

Happy Land

My wobbly happy piece of ceramics finally has a new meaning.

4/52

Time for another drawing experiment. I used bottom part of round packaging from Brie cheese and still have the top one to use later. This type of stiffer paper is quite good for watercolors as it turned out:

And I wanted to share a photo from yesterday's walk. I really like the way this old frame from Pixlr-o-matic enhances the image:

3/52

This time I up-cycled a smaller cardboard box. I used old newspapers to cover it all to give it more strength and nice texture. Then I decorated it with a simple bird drawing. There is also one thing on the bottom but I didn't get a decent photo of it.

Bird's Box

It was a hasty project but I'm kinda satisfied with how it looks. Only, my gosh, I am sooo rusty at drawing, feels like pre school to me... soooo much to learn....

Not only did I draw something, I also gave it away as a gift.

I love green tea

I used real green tea for coloring tea in the cup.

My scanner currently hates my comp so I can't upload better pictures (it's really hard photographing these things).

Coffee I

Inspired by this tutorial I made this:

Coffee I

I used coffee for background and it smells really nice :) I think I'll do 2 more then I'll try with tea.

Papier Mache Cups

So I was browsing and browsing (one quickly gets into hours and hours of clicking) and found Ann Wood's blog with this great project - Papier Mache Cups:

And after my stroll I had some wonderful ideas about what else to make based on her tutorial.

I hope this will inspire you too.

Challenges

I've never made any New Year's resolutions before as I was always afraid of failing and thus being disappointed with myself. So I won't do it this year either. BUT.

I'm challenging myself to draw 52 works during this year be it doodles, drawings, paintings, etchings, printings, collages, you name it.... anything counts, just because I seem to be stuck somewhere and I want to move forward!

To help me with my problems about "what to draw" I bought this little book


so now, I have no excuses anymore.

There are other things I'd love to do as well but I'll rather take smaller steps and just surprise myself as I go along.

What about you? Made any resolutions or challenges for yourselves?
