Vol au vent

👁️ 👁️ HI SUGARS! THE MOTIF IS AT THE CROSSROADS OF THE GAZE.

Désert Occidental

Rien ne presse, presque ……………………….Suivre sa piste
l’allure des petits pas, …………trace la ligne des pointillés
un peu hautaine. ………………………en trouver l’équilibre
Au croisement du regard ……………..une balance d’aigus
ne te retourne pas. ……………………..courbes aux volants.

Milo the Surf dog pet portrait fashion makeover

🐕 WELL DEARS! IT’S TIME TO DRESS OUR PETS AND GUYS.

Milo the Surf dog

Yesterday the government announced that KL won’t go into top tier lockdown, today, they announced that we will be in lockdown from 7th May for 2 weeks. I’m not sure what difference it will make considering we have not been able to move much, I guess no dining in restaurants will help 

Bake-able molds magic – Shades of Blue Clay Earrings

👂🏻🔷 HI BEAUTIES, IT’S TIME FOR THESE LITTLE SCULPTURES, THAT WE SOMETIMES KNOWN AS EARRINGS…

Learn Polymer Clay

Hello dear friends!

How are you today? I hope we’re enjoying good weather and beautiful moments with the special people in your life;)

I’m also doing well and very eager to show you a design that I particularly like and that I made using a CreateAlong bake-able mold. I’ve been a member of the CreateAlong design team since recently and I had the privilege to test, first hand, their bake-able molds. And guess what, I loved them. Why? Well, because they allow you to make the perfect shapes for your clay beads. Which is not always so easy when using cutters or templates.

And then, you can use these clay beads as a blank canvas and decorate them with any clay technique. Which is great.

Now, let me show you an example. Here’s a beautiful pair of clay earrings with dangling blue drop beads that I made using this idea…

Talking Pants (and vests!)

💠✴️❇️ WELL SISTERS, AFTER STUDY NATURE, FLORAL MOTIF AND ITS ABSTRACTION, IS SO SUITABLE, ALSO FOR WEARING IT.

Love, Lucie

My husband thinks Lockdown no 3 is having a negative effect on my mindset.

‘Why else,’ he exclaimed, ‘would you be making adult sized, children’s vest and pants sets?’

My answer is that I’m saving the planet by stash busting my jersey scraps. It turns out that this is actually terrifically good for my mindset if a feeling of satisfaction, pure delight when I put on a matching set, and a feeling of warmth and comfyness is anything to go by.

This is the Itch to Stitch Cartagena Cami and Made by Jack’s Mum Wonder Undies.

I started with the vests

Yes, I made quite a few! The instructions were great and the fold over elastic very easy to attach using a regular sewing machine zigzag stitch. These are straight off the machine with no practice.

They are quite addictive!

Kennis (of Itch to Stitch) provides you with the exact…

Going with the flow

💚 HI DEARS! THESE FLOWERS CAN PUSH THE BEST CREATIVITY. CONGRATS!

Patty Anne - Art

I bought some pretty paper at the craft store a while back. There’s something about playing with paper and cutting out shapes that always gets me inspired.

Happy Sunday, friends! 💚

These pretty patterns and warm colors inspired today’s art selection. 😊 I haven’t decided what I’m going to do with these shapes yet but I’m sure they will find their way into an upcoming project soon.

I was playing in my sketchbook with a large flat brush and painted this landscape with just two colors:
Prussian Blue and Quinacridone Burnt Orange

I’m amazed at how many different colors and tones you can get when painting with just two colors.

Coffee painting - Roses

These roses were painted about a year ago with espresso powder and water. Painting with coffee is a lot of fun and this is one of my favorites.

I hope you are inspired to create art and do more of…

I’m Not Taking Blue For Granted Anymore.

🔷💙 OH LOVELIES, DO NOT WORRY IF YOU ARE BLUE. THIS COLOUR IS HIGHLY VALUED.

Sew Everything Blog

The header image is taken from the article in AramcoWorld (linked below). Eric Lubrick/ Indianapolis Museum of Art.

In 2021 all art, craft and sewing supplies are so easily obtained in every color, that I was amazed to learn that the color blue was found and developed with much difficulty throughout the millennia. Yes, the story of blue goes back thousands of years BC to the first blue – still known as Egyptian Blue.  I was captivated by this article in a magazine called Aramco World, and am providing a link below. I can’t copy the entire article here due to copyright issues, as it should be. But, a complete read of this is fascinating. So go ahead click on the link below!

Born July 15 (or not?*)~ Bessie MacNicol

💐 WELL SISTERS, THERE IS NO WOMAN WHO DOES NOT HAVE FLOWERS OR WHO DOES NOT WANT TO HAVE THEM

The Misty Miss Christy

Elizabeth “Bessie” MacNicol (1869–1904) was a Scottish painter and member of the Glasgow Girls group of artists.

* Wikipedia lists the date as July 5, Grove Art Online lists it as July 15, and Benezit Dictionary of Artists as July 17, and various sites support one or another of these three. I have arbitrarily chosen to go with the 15th.

In the red

🔴 HI SUGARS! BEGONIAS INSPIRE JOY AND UNDER A RED SHADOW YOU CAN GET A STUNNING WORK LIKE THIS BY SHARI.

Shari Blaukopf's Sketchbook

I was out sketching with my friend Joni on the weekend. She chose our sketching spot at La Croissanterie Figaro because of the red umbrellas. Of course she didn’t realize, and neither did I until we sat down, that having a giant canopy of red umbrellas overhead would make it really hard to see the colour in our sketchbooks. I’ve included photos of both of us so you could see what the colour is like under the umbrellas, and also how beautiful the begonias are, which is why we both sketched them! Many thanks to the folks at the café who let us sketch for a good long time without pushing us out to welcome the Sunday brunch crowd.
