Abstract florals on a Tuesday

 

 

Hello friends! Hope you are doing well. How about some abstract florals on a Tuesday? 

I’m trying hard to get back to my morning painting practice routine because I get to do something solely for me and my pleasure. Self-love. *winks*

Have you been doing anything just for yourself lately?

Make Stuff Monday - an upcycled box with scrap bits


 


Today's Make Stuff Monday - an upcycled box with scrap bits. Recognise the fussy-cut blooms? They were cut out from the mooncake paper bag (I had 2!)


I think the quote is pretty apt for a home care package for someone. Maybe filled with treats from different parts of the world? *winks*


I added some trim and washi tape at the edges of the cover of the box. :)


I kept most of the elements flattish so that it is storage and postal-friendly.

Happy week ahead friends!

Another Friday, another abstract floral piece


 


What? Is it Friday already? This was one of those weeks that just flew by and there was just so much to do! Did manage to sneak it a morning practice session today. I played with bright happy colours and just let them bleed into each other...not every practice needs to yield a masterpiece. *LOL*

Happy weekend friends! :)

Another cute card from scrap bits


 


I'm kind of sad that I'm almost out of these cute animals cut out from happy mail bits. But I have loved every moment of stretching my creativity to make each one unique. (I will share them collectively in a future post).


Tearing the edges of the paper adds texture and interest to your creative project and maximises the scrap bits you get to use.


Happy Thursday friends! :)

Workspace Wednesday - abstract florals


 


Sometimes life gets in the way of art. This piece of abstract florals was a 2-morning-practice-session effort. Using my fave wet-on-wet technique for the "blurry, hide all the mistakes" look. I think it turned out quite pretty. 

What do you think?

A quick decorated upcycled Christmas tin


 


This gal is on a roll with her Christmas projects...*winks*


I started with this lovely Christmas tin that I got last year from buying SCS butter. Back then I wanted to collect all 4 designs but only managed to get 2. This year I've decided to decorate them, fill them up with goodies and give them away. :)


What do you think?

A birthday card using random bits on my desk


 


Happy Monday friends! Today's share is a birthday card using random bits on my desk. 


Can you recognise the bits? (bear and notepaper from happy mail, fussy-cut flowers from paper bag)


I know the "scene" is so random but that is how I roll. *LOL*

Friday florals - another abstract piece


 


I've really been enjoying my quick abstract florals these days. I do them while standing so I stick to my time allocation (when I sit down, I tend to fuss more with the details and lose track of time)...and no paper dies from my ugly painting...*LOL* The paper needs to be flat on the desk because I like to work with wet on wet techniques. 

Happy weekend friends! :)

Always happy when randomly thrown together scrap bits come together for a somewhat cohesive look. *winks*


Hope you have been having a great week so far!

Make Stuff Monday - a decorated Christmas gift box


 


For today's Make Stuff Monday, I'm sharing a decorated Christmas gift box. :)


The box was from Shu Uemura (Japanese cosmetics brand) and featured a cool diagonal magnetic closure. 


I decided to use the box's unique feature to my advantage and just designed on the diagonal flap portion.


I kept the design pretty minimal so that the contrast against the black really makes it pop. :)


I was tempted to add some dimensional elements but refrained so that it would be much easier to store it (can be stacked) and more postal-friendly as well.

Happy Monday friends!

Friday's Florals - abstract floral play


 


Sharing Friday's Florals - today's abstract floral play. I think I prefer to stand and paint (instead of sitting). The strokes are looser and wonkier and I have way more fun! 

Happy weekend my friends! :)

P/s: And yes, that is my new tiny terrarium. :)

The decorated notebook - Christmas edition



Meet this week's decorated notebook - Christmas edition 1.0. :)


Since I needed to keep the elements flat (for ease of writing), I went deep into my Christmas stickers and washi tape stash. *winks*


Have you started on your Christmas 2021 projects?

Workspace Wednesday - abstract floral play


 


Hello friends! Today's Workspace Wednesday is an abstract floral play. I usually stand when painting so that I utilize my entire arm and can be really "loose" in my stroke expression. And I'm conscious of time passing because it gets tiring when you have to stand. *winks*

Today I tried a seated position and before I knew it, 30 minutes was gone. It was 30 minutes of total immersion and it was really therapeutic and relaxing. Guess I have to find a balance between standing and sitting to really get the best of both worlds.
