A little Watercolour pink flowers

Hello,

Here’s a little water colour flower painting of mine.

I created this using Pink Ecoline water colour ink for the flowers and black for the flower centres.

The light coloured flower petals around the background were created using the water I had been cleaning my brush in 😁

The pink ink had made the water a pink wash and so I used a little water to create the background petals. 😄

The paper used is cold pressed Watercolour paper, in white.

I enjoyed doing this piece as I did the flowers free hand and enjoyed playing with the ink and water to create depth to the petals.

Thank you for reading and Happy Crafting!

My Instagram craft inspirations

Hello! 

I’ve always been quite ‘arty’ in that I make cards, sew, crochet etc. but over the last year I feel as though my crafts have developed further.

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts I want to take my crafting on to the next step now, get my name out there, maybe even a craft fair or getting commissioned to do a project.

This past year I have been using social media a lot more with Twitter  & my blog.

One platform I particularly like/appreciate is Instagram.

I realised yesterday that I have been using Instagram for 7 months now. In that time I have been so inspired by all of the wonderful work I have seen that I have:

1) Taken up Watercolour colour painting

 

2) Tried my hand at galaxy painting 

My favourite of my galaxy paintings


3) Started flower drawing


4) And my biggest accomplishment over the last 7 months is teaching myself Calligraphy 


Instagram has been such a source of inspiration over the last 7 months. I hope that some of my posts have inspired people to try crafts too.

I would also like to achieve this with my blog, so I hope I can share crafty techniques for people to use to create their own beautiful projects. My blog is now 3 months old and I so I hope to develop this further too.

 Over on my Instagram post from today I have also posted links to a few of the many artists who have inspired me so far.

Do you have social media accounts where you find inspiration? Or maybe a different medium?

I’d love to know if you’d be happy to share, feel free to leave a comment.

Thank you for reading and happy crafting!

I’ve designed myself a logo 

Hello 🙋🏻

I’ve been toying with the idea of creating myself a logo for a little while now. And yesterday inspiration struck!

And so I have created my own logo to hopefully create a bit of a brand for myself. 


I craft as a hobby with the occasional sale but long term I would really love to make something more if it, either via my crafty projects or through my blog.

I’m going to keep creating and see where it goes 😊

Do you have a logo for your projects/work? Did you create it yourself? 

Have fun creating and happy crafting!

A Christmas tree galaxy – Watercolour & Christmas.

Hello!

I have recently been experimenting with water colour inks to make galaxy paintings. I have shared a few of my recent pieces in my posts; Two pieces I’m really proud of and A watercolour galaxy not so far away
