My Artwork

I have been very passionate towards art these past few months and as I was going through many tutorials which would help me begin drawing, it struck me to began creating something of my own. It is interesting and a great way to spend your afternoons if you are at home and in your leisure hours. A great relaxation therapy I can say.

So, here are few celtic designs I started creating and I think they are pretty cool. I would love to know what you think. I had trouble following videos for days and would feel low when I couldn’t really connect dots and sway around like how others do. They are lucky and I just wanted to feel a bit myself by doing what I can.

There’s no thumb rule that a design must be in a way. A pattern is something more of your creativity. I started creating lot of designs, geometric patterns I can say and they have come out beautifully although you might find some of them awful.

Nevertheless, I am sharing a picture with all the pieces together for you to figure out. I preferred using my handy markers since I still don’t have the solvents and stuff required to paint. Yet, I did go ahead and use water with colours here and there 🙂


My Painting 

Today I am painting a wooden organiser I got for a $ or more during Christmas. I just love everything to be dazzling a bit and colourful. At the same time, I prefer classy look. 

Hope it turns out to be something good. Well, I am having great time. Hope you do too with what you like. 

Hooked On Coloring

Colouring books have suddenly caught my interest after watching “Better Homes and Gardens”. I have heard nowadays women suddenly show great sense of interest and appreciation towards crafting stuff it could be knitting, sewing, colouring, decorating. As long as you are doing something to change the look of your empty walls and space, You are a crafty woman.

I just got a print of two or three designs I liked and since I didn’t have any sketches or colour pencils except the paint stuff, I decided to give it a go with the markers I had handy and it looks like this:

Merry Christmas 

   Wish you all a wonderful Christmas this year. Too much to shop and bake and wrap gifts, there is really no time for blogging.
There’s my Christmas ball I tried painting with some color for my bird’s home. He loves them hanging around. 

He is Mr.Cookie, a 3 month old budgie. He loves chirping, very friendly and great with kids. By the way it’s his first Christmas with us and we love having him with us. Hope he feels the same. 


The Useless Candles

Since two years, I have been crazy and obsessed all over the scented candles. Wherever I went, those aromas came with me for a while. After sometime they dropped dead. Anyways I still bought a spade of them falling in love with the lavender and strawberry & Vanilla flavours recently.

Nowadays its all about fancying for the candle holders, Vases and stuff. Yet, I have got this bunch of candles I have no use for and every time my husband reminds me the trash can they belong to, I feel sad. I knew they deserve to be part of something beautiful although their aroma is long gone. So, this is what I came up with yesterday.

It is a small kick start of my crazy craft work with useless candles. I am sure women are good at this but me being one of those who never even touched a sketch, It is one of a kind I made.

You can make lot of interesting stuff with the candles that have no scent or they can’t be lit with the left over wax hanging out, they looked empty and cold. I gave it a thought and all I have at home are a pair of scissors and pro paint artist Palette, a 12 pc one bought from reject shop a while ago and any unused dark piece of cloth would be perfectly good to begin this project.

What all you require:

  1. Cloth: Some dark colour preferable to wipe off the paint.
  2. Paint of your choice/sketch or anything that brings out some colour.
  3. Brush.
  4. Bowl of water

Well, if the tip is not broken fully, You can still reuse but the tiny candles I have are in the worst condition. So, I just scraped off the remaining wax with a tiny sharp thing and started working on it.

I tried to take as many pictures as possible. I hope you will appreciate the absurdity of my project.

Time to get crafty with useless candles;

Take one of the candles and like I mentioned earlier, Scrape off any leftover wax and either dip the brush in a bowl of water first and then dip in the colour of your choice or do it the other way.

Since this is my first time, I just happened to drop some water on the colour I chose and began. After a while, It got smudgy and changed the original colour. So, be careful.

I chose red and just started splashing the paint as hand went and put some dots on top of it after the paint dried. It just takes few seconds. Keep dipping in the water, It is easier.

I chose green colour for the inner portion and painted it plain on the walls and since I didn’t have any design on my mind, I just managed to try the contrast colour for Green and made some stripes across the centre and painted Green for the centre.

This is how it turned out. Not pretty bad right?

  1. Red for the outside walls and stripes or any design of your choice.
  2. Green for the inner walls.
  3. Green for the centre portion.

Set it aside and get crafty again.
