Cute Hanging Frame

Standard

It was so good to make this beautiful art project. I have no stress at all… It is such a joy to be handcraft designer.

To do this, you need time, space, decoupage finish, fabric glue, color, old ribbon, lace, and at least 3 copies of your printed medium.

How to Make Antique Plates

Standard

You need antiquing medium, printed papers, decoupage medium, (definitely not water based) varnish and your old glass plates. Be careful, you nee be patient, glass painting is hard for the impatient people like me. You need to wait one day on every layer, hard to dry.

Whatever you do on wood painting, you need to do it inverse. First paint with antiquing medium, then decoupage, then paint the color, and finally varnish it. Afterwards, you can wash the plates by hand. Just paint the bottom of the plate if you use it to eat yummy things…

Our plates are elegant and antique now hihi. I will serve Pilav today to our guests.

Incoming Hand-Made Pieces

Standard

Are you one of the people telling ‘I can do better,’ ‘I can do that too,’ ‘I am gonna do that art piece better at home…’ instead of appreciating art works? I am definitely not. I want to paint more, create something everyday, sleep happy after putting crazy things together in a harmony, and I want to draw… I want to go to an art gallery everyday, and paint the illusions I see… Eventhough, I have time, I cannot do that.

Although, I have a very tolerant husband,  It is really hard to have time to live like an artist. Since, I am unemployed, it is hard not to keep on cleaning home, not looking for a job, not going stupid interviews, and telling ‘no’ to the very busy friends of yours.

Well, I could not start painting that watch below. I bought this one month ago, and I just painted yesterday night. Since, nothing is easy, I will never ever say ‘I can do better,’ ‘I can do that too,’ ‘I am gonna do that art piece better at home…’

You can always do this better. I, however learn the value of appreciation. By the way, you can paint do this better, I can be one of the reasons, this is an example to start your imagination better. To criticize what could this thing better. Indeed, I thank many creators I am gazing at their websites, they are tempting to create more…

Well, another art piece is still on progress… a champagne bottle. I started to paint three weeks ago! And, guess, It is not FINISHED yet!

Well, it is not finished…

I wish I leave the tulips white… The final result can be better…

The final sentence of this blog is; appreciate people, appreciate yourself…

 

 

How to Make a Posh Present with the Cheapest Soap

Standard

I bought the cheapest soap and all I use was plaid decoupage finish, laser printed paper, the cheapest ribbon and scissors. The soap transformed in to very posh presents… I painted the soap all over with decoupage finish. Therefore, it will be so resistant to the water.

Lovely Pillow

Standard

This lovely illustration made by my niece. I loved it!!! This is her portrait with my husband… There is also red written question; ‘Aunty, I love you so much, do you love me’? Yes, I LOVE YOU!!!:)

With fabric transfer finish I made this lovely pillow. You need to photocopy of the original art work on the mirror view. It takes two days to dry out. I am not patient so it was a good lesson to learn how to be patient. My mom sewed it, thanks to mommy and my beautiful niece…

A Present

Standard

I wanted to prepare a present for my brother in law, he is a professor designing robots and attending Robocup since I know him.

I found a beautiful smart cartoon at Alex Noriega Sketchblog. I was so excited and just could wait to ask Alex to use it but I hope he will be happy to know, lots of serious professors and science students will have a look at it…
