Just a few words..

Now it is Christmas time so Im framing some paintings I might give away to someone I love.

Last week I did a little doodling, I love to doodle, find it so relaxing. 
So happy with my Mandala.

Before I made this little lady out of paper clay. And I had to make something out of her so I did paint her a dress and make her legs. To morrow Im going to paint her shoes and hang her to one of my walls to enjoy looking at her :)

Have a beautiful day

DIY Christmas Fun for Hues n Shades

I was asked to make a Christmas ornament or some kind of do it yourself for x-mas.
I decided to show how to make a line with clips for Christmas cards.
What you need is wooden laundry clips, some kind of string (about 1.5 to 2 meters) acrylic paint, read, white, black, green and yellow. White glitter if you want. 

First I take few wooden laundry clips, about 20 pieces.

First I  take the half of the clips and start with red color, paint Santa´s jacket and Santa´s cap
then I make his beard and the fur edge of his cap with white color and the dusk too.
Next is to paint his face with skin tone.

Next step is to paint the other half of the clips green.
I do add red and yellow dots for lights and then I paint a yellow star on top of the clips

Next step is to paint dots for eye and nose and add a little red color for mouth in the beard.

Then I add a little glitter on the white color of Santa´s cap.

and this is how I hang my Christmas cards. 

This is the one I have. I do add this string between two nails on the wall (1 to 1.5 cm between) and hang all my Christmas cards one in each clips. This makes a beautiful Christmas decoration.
Sorry I don´t have picture of it hanging on my wall to show you but I hope this will do.

When I start I cant stop....

So many times when I start painting I cant stop. 
I paint one and then another and so on using the same color in every painting.
Now Im in love with this beautiful color Quinacridone Magnenta from Golden.

First I did a girl from India in a saree with a little singing bird on her sholder.

Then I did another girl with feather in her hair and a little bird on her shoulder too.

I have made another girl but that is an angel, Ill post a photo of her soon.

Have a beautiful week

You might think that I´m crazy but sometimes I fall in love with my paintings.
To day I did paint this adorable girl with her friend the bird sitting on her head, talking to  her.. 
I love this one, I love the bird, I love the colors and I love the background. 
Maybe I should paint some more Lovely Ladies..
This one is going to be the cover for my planner 2015... so excited..

Painting my clay

Today I decided to paint My Lovely Lady witch I made of clay two years ago.
Here you can see picture from start to end.

That´s how she looked

I did start with black color, little scary..

Fully covered with black color

Then it was to bring some color to her

She got a brown hair and a turquoise dress, same color as her bird

Then she did get some makeup and a little decoration to her dress..

More decoration both to her dress and her bird with his beautiful crown

I was not happy with a white wing on the bird

In the end I did add some charcoal to get some shades.
Now she is done..

So what do you think..

I would love you to leave me a message

Have a great weekend

I carry my home with me

Now I have made my painting nr. 4 in my Gut Art class with Mystel.
I love watching Mystel paint and get so inspiring every time.
As usual I do start with the background.

Love to find something in my canvas that I can use to make my painting.

Now I have painted many layers with all kind of painting, pastel, gesso and just anything laying on my desk. 
I kind of like her.
Im waiting to get rubbing alcohol and after a little touch here and then I will be done with my girl that carries her home with her..

Im back in my studio..

Yesterday I went back to my studio again.
I had to create..and what I did, I made few more Artist Trading Blocks.
I love making these, does not matter how many I make they all look different.
On the back side there is a small hole so it is easy to hang to the wall.
I think I might add some to my etsy shop witch I have not been taking care of for a long, long time.

Hope you like my little ones.

Have a beautiful day.
