Autumn has hit New Zealand in just a few weeks! It feels like only yesterday we were enjoying the beautiful perks of summer. I’m excited for winter though, it means warm wooly jackets, scarves, boots, trips to the snow and hot cocoas in bed on rainy days.
What does Autumn mean to you?
Sorry friends, no Shoot it Sketch it post from me today. Instead, I’m sharing a new print I did over Easter! Done in my new favourite colours this season- blue and mustard yellow…ahhh so beautiful! This print is now up on the Shop as a print.
Art Project / Inspired by the desert: Colourful tiger…or maybe a panther?
So I’m not sure if this is a tiger/panther/lion… I will leave that up to all of you!
Today I used the same style as the owl and rainforest bird I did. LOTS of colour! This artwork doesn’t have as much doodling as I love the way the colour speaks for itself. What do you think it most looks like? Tiger? Panther? …
Remember to check out Alana’s drawing today!
I just thought this was a really cute little shed so wanted to share it with you all. And I loooove corrugated iron with all its different colours and rusting spots. This shed was actually perched right on the beach. Where I was standing to take the image was the high tide mark. Very kiwi and very cool! Have a lovely day! xo Bec
This is a bit of a ‘before and after’ post for an art print Ive been working on. In some of my art, I like to use pencil first but in most cases I freestyle it and enjoy what comes out. At the moment Im loving geometric shapes so branching off a bit from my usual nature art, here is what Ive called ‘Sunset Stripes’. This print is now available on the shop! xo Bec
So today Im taking on a craft challenge that Tracy from Momoftwosalums holds each month- this month is for coasters! I found these old glass coasters at the recycle shop, cleaned them up and got creating
I used a permanent marker to zentangle some simple leaves onto the glass then filled in the gaps with glass paint. Because I was drawing on the underside of the coasters I drew the design first then painted in the gaps. Doing it around the other way would mean the black lines arent seen.
Dont they work well together?! Now I just need to invite people round for tea to enjoy them If you want to get involved in next months craft challenge just pop over to Momoftwosalums blog here! xo Bec
For a while now ive been collecting these photos. I wanted to capture images of flowers at their birth and death. Theres such an obvious contrast in these images and I love how they’re still so beautiful. Hope everyone is having a good week… Im still busy zentangling! Is there anything else you would like to see me zentangle on? Thanks xo Bec
