1  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Re: Tree pendant on: November 20, 2014 11:22:09 PM
Thanks everyone  Cheesy
Ffrog, yes, I sealed it lightly with a spray varnish for gouaches. That type of varnish does not change the color of the wood so much. So I like it for that. It still gives a light gloss though.
Maybe in the future I will only varnish the painted part, to make sure the wood stays as beautiful as possible.
But this way is also ok I think.

I made a new one yesterday ^_^ this time with oil paints. I think oils are just so lovely on wood, so I decided to see if I could paint so small with it.  So here is the result ^_^ I love butterflies so maybe more will come. First I am going to make two for friends though. So that will take me a while (it took 4 hours to make this one Tongue)

Hey there,
I just finished a new pendant. I painted a tree on wood with gold and black paint (and white for snow). I used to do big paintings in this way, but stopped for some reason. Now I decided to start small, so that maybe I get the motivation to make a big one again. Sometimes making something small helps to get back into that creative flow Smiley
What do you think?
I am going to make another one today I think, maybe more branches as if it was seen from a bit further away.
I like the snow, so somehow I want to try to incorporate more snow in the air, without it starting to look too full.

Btw, I added my name on the picture, because I recently found out that there are a lot of things that I made on pinterest. But with someone elses name on it! I was a bit shocked. Often things are pinned from here as well, which is totally ok to me, but someone elses name on it goes to far for me.
So I started adding my name on pictures that I put on the internet.
Its not a link, just my real name. So I hope it is ok. But if it is not, please let me know!

Ok, here is the new one ^_^.
It turned out not to be a cat with mushrooms, but a birthday cat, lol. I wanted to paint balloons today. I had these nice transparent ones in mind. I am definitely going to do that again.  Cheesy

So far I failed in making a nice one with mushrooms and a cat, I got into too much detail for such a small space. And just did not have the vision for a nice color scheme. So going to try again today. Just watched tons of watercolor tutorials on youtube, and saw someone using ecocline ink, for the brightest colors. Which is just a very cool idea. I know the ecocline yellow is super bright, so maybe I will try this (hope mines have not dried out, I have not been using them for years)

Ah right, then I guess that they are ACEO's, because I did decide to put them in my shop. Is it still ok that they are here in the ATC topic? I just thought it would be fun to share with others that enjoy doing the same type of things.

And, about never running out of ideas with cats.. true! I think cats will always be a lot of fun to draw. I was thinking I would maybe keep on drawing this red one, in serene and peaceful ways, some cats are just like that. They just always sit in places where they look pretty.
And then create a black or striped one, that is more into adventures. That one will be climbing on things during the night, or chasing things, and be a bit of a playful character. Maybe somewhere in the future I will put them together in one picture, somehow.

Kwality, Thanks!
I used watercolors, a black copic liner pen and a white pilot choose gel pen for the white flowers and highlights. (just love those white gel pens).
Oh, and a red copic marker for the red flowers. It was more bright then my water color version.

Gotgrey, thanks!

Thanks both of you!  Grin Happy to read that you like them.

Blupaisan, Cats are one of my fav subjects as well. Next to trees and butterflies.
I am going to work on one with mushrooms and the same red cat, I have been pushing it forward, today but going to start right this second.  Cheesy

Hey there,
I recently started out making ACEO/ATC miniatures. I very much enjoy that right now.
I am considering making more.
What kind of subjects do you guys think would be nice? So far I have been doing kitties and trees ^_^ which are usually my favorite subjects in general.  (I adore cats)

These two are the ones that I made recently. I like how they have turned out, especially the green one.

What kind of subjects do you like for ATC cards? (I am curious)
Feel free to share yours if you like Smiley
