Acrylic Painting


This past week I have been trying Acrylic painting instead of watercolours. I like the vivid colours that this painting has. I started doing this painting in the art club that I recently joined. The photo below shows me when I first started doing this piece.

Cute Squirrel Keyring




I decided to make a project using some felt this week because my little sister was also using the felt to make her own project.  I chose to make a cute squirrel keyring with some bright coloured felt.

I didn't follow any tutorials for this, I simply cut out the design by freehand and worked with what fabric I had in the house. All that was needed was some felt (Pink, white and black) and a needle and thread (white and black).

Cookie Decorating


This Eid my family and I made and decorated cookies that we could give as gifts to our friends.  The photograph above are just some of the cookies that I designed using a henna style design. Below is me decorating one of the cookies.


The photographs below are some of the cookies that my mum and little sister also helped design. My mum wrote a blog post showing the recipe we used for these. http://www.karimascrafts.com/2015/09/henna-style-decorated-cookies-for-eid.html


We also made and decorated some cookies in a sheep design.


Here is a photograph of the cookies ready to gift.

Watercolor Painting


I have recently joined a local art group and have been learning new art techniques. I have been trying out watercolors and getting a few helpful tips from other members, some of them with decades of experience.

I thought I would share with you some of my recent artwork. A flower painting below.



Another attempt at flower painting below.


Making finishing touches to my latest design below, this is the photo at the top of my post.
