My Art Supplies Case


Sharing with you my latest Art Supplies Case I now have. I used an old bargain buy make-up case on wheels to now store my painting supplies when I go out to my classes.


I saw this for second hand case on wheels for sale and couldn't resist buying it to use for all my paints, especially now I have a lot more since winning the art supplies hamper in the competition I told you about in my last post.  It has lots of storage spaces to keep things separate. I have a section just for paints, section for pencils, section for brushes, section for paper etc.  I am really pleased I saw this item to buy. It is lightweight and easy to move about so I can take it out with me. Some of the items from my win below are now in the case. http://www.slhcrafts.com/2015/11/art-competition-winner.html

Art Competition Winner


I wrote a blog post a few months back about a piece of art I did with the theme 'Alice in Wonderland'. Here is the original link: http://www.slhcrafts.com/2015/09/alice-in-wonderland-crafts.html

I found out last month that I was chosen as a winner in the competition and was invited along to an opening of a new Art Gallery in our City where I would also receive my prize. Unfortunately I wasn't able to make the official opening but I was invited along today to see my work in the gallery and receive my prize. I won a £100 hamper of Art Supplies. I am really happy that I won and love the prize too.

T-shirt Cushion


I wanted to have some extra cushions for my bed and couldn't find any designs that I liked. I had some t-shirts that I didn't wear anymore so decided to use them to make some cushion covers. What do you think of this particular design?

Wire and Nail Varnish Art


I saw something similar online and thought that i would be able to try that myself with my craft pieces.  I used the jewellery wire I had and some different nail varnishes for this piece of art.  

Easy Tutorial:

I simply used 9 pieces of wire. I then left 3 pieces together and then wrapped the remaining pieces around those to make the tree shape, leaving the 3 pieces long enough to make legs/stand. Then I made a loop/leaf shape at the ends of the branches. The bottom 3 pieces I twisted to make into legs to make the tree stand.  Spread out the pieces of wire to make them look like branches.  I then used nail varnish to paint over the loops to give a wonderfully colourful design.

I hope you like this.

Watercolor Bird


This last week I finished off the Watercolor bird I have been painting. I practiced drawing a few birds at first and then when I was happy with one of them I then painted it. I then bought a frame to put it in. I hope you like it.
