Watercolour Inspiration

Gosh, It’s been a month since I wrote a post! But I’m back now! I want to have a record of my progress as I learn to paint with watercolour.  It is fun to read some of my old blog posts when I was learning how to paint furniture. So I thought I’d do the same for this new artistic adventure. I’ve been researching through books I borrowed in the library, you tube videos and other blog posts and I think I’ve come to the conclusion as to which style of watercolour painting I’d like to explore Read more […]

It’s been 2 months and I haven’t actually created anything.. Oh I forgot, I made this for a friend on her birthday.

Tracy Harrison on Clay and Pottery

One of the many things in my bucket list that hopefully I can do this year is learning pottery. With my current interest in tea pots and tea sets (thanks to my friend Grace)..

Mod Podge Magic, The Recycled Box

  Does it ever happen to you where you got a box you couldn’t just throw away? Like it’s trying to tell you.. “Hey, make something out of me!”.. It happens to me very often, not just with boxes but with other stuff too, like this Ice box I turned into an umbrella holder.  You can see on this post how I used it in a photo shoot.  But I have to be very careful at not hoarding.  I have to make sure I make something out of them as quickly as possible as I can, or else it just becomes Read more […]

Holiday Window Painting

I’ve mentioned on the blog before that a year ago, we moved to The Heights. This Christmas season, this area in North Burnaby looks quite busy and festive.

What caught my eye the most are the happy, colourful window paintings to greet you this season. This one is at Fortuna Bakery . Pardon the poorly captured photo with my iphone. But these Read more […]
