I’m pretty excited to be sharing a sneak peek into our home! And how adding a huge piece of art can make an incredible beautiful difference. I stretched my own canvas onto this large frame and using house paint, layered colours to create a huge watercolour-looking piece.

This has really got me inspired to create some larger version artworks – of the designs I currently do for my Etsy Shop.
Its exciting when new ideas form! The only tricky part when doing something as big as this is it needs to be a sunny day so I have a large space in the garden to throw paint around.xobec

Good morning lovely friends! Today I am teaming up with Carly from Happy Little Kiwi blog & Alana from The Little Leaf to bring you some gift wrapping ideas. We love doing projects together & plan to do of them over the coming months. Having a creative project that we work separately on but encourage each other with – is such an amazing way to work.

Today I have 3 ideas:
♥ Gold & yellow mixed with fake flowers & doilies

Shoot it, Sketch it: Red Poppies

Red PoppiesRed Poppy Vase Drawing 2

A friends gave me these flowers whilst we were living in Sydney. I had taken a photo of them on my phone and as I was browsing my phone albums, I thought it would be the perfect inspiration behind today’s Shoot it, Sketch it feature. I’m not sure what it is about poppies but I just LOVE them. Some photos I have taken of them in the past are here, here and here. And other poppy artworks here, here and here.

Some others that enjoy to join in on the feature Shoot it, Sketch it are: The Little Leaf, poppytump, Lunch Sketch, twoscamps, Anna Cull, BreOfficialSite and 30 Minute Art.
If you would like to join in, please do. The more, the merrier!
Oh yeah and this print is now available on the shop!
