The idea to use hot glue this way is really smart, have to remember that one! Cheesy
Also the water bottle idea is great!

Goodness  Cheesy 'dead tree art' sounds very sad. I guess its a bit weird that I usually paint trees without leafs or flowers. Also in my paintings and such I do that a lot.
I wonder what that means, probably that I need to grow and move into more creative times lol Smiley

But I have some new ones anyway, still winter trees. I guess their roots under the ground must be alive, that makes it more cheerfull. lol Smiley

I am also working on one with stars by the way, as some of you mentioned. If I can figure out a nice way, I will show it here Smiley

A bit late, but I did not notice the replies!
Thanks Smiley

I love the idea of hedgehogs and mushrooms (Sifi Mom and Golden Sunshine) I might do that! Both can be very cute.
Also the woodland creatures sound wonderful (perfectly bohemian), I expecially like foxes, so I might try a curled up fox.
The unexpected things, like electronic stuff sounds very interesting too. I am not sure though if that is completely my thing. But maybe I will try it anyway, could be a lot of fun to explore new things.

I did make two new ones, the tree is from a while ago already, and the flowers are from last week.
Both where woodburned again, and colored with paint or copic markers.

There is also one with red flowers, but lost the picture for a moment.
I am thinking about using the flowers for little ear-studs as well. Just tiny red flowers as ear-studs. Or maybe white daisy like flowers. Or blue 'forget me not' flowers.

Thanks everyone for the feedback on this Smiley
I was very excited to do this little project. It has been a while since I dared to really try anything, after a long time of not being productive at all.
I need to be creative to feel good, its just part of me. But sometimes lots of things hold me back massively. Sometimes it makes me scared to start again.
But this turned out well, I had so much positive reponds to it that it made me really hyper for a couple of weeks  Cool lol. While secretly I have a lack of energy most of the time. Chronic fatique without any clear cause. Its not that it was gone, but somewhere it helped.
It is definately what I need to be doing more again, like in the past.

Thanks for the uplifting replies  Cheesy
If I manage to make more in the coming months, I will show it here again.

Wow, thanks for all the replies about this question.
I can see that most here think very simulair to how I feel about it.
I loved something that 'stillatthetop' said: "Eye....Hand....Heart. When you put them together, they spell ART"
I think I will make myself remember that for ever  Cheesy I like it.

Thanks! I am happy that you like them.
Is the size ok too? Or would you make them smaller/bigger?

Here are two others, the pink one is slightly smaller.

Hey there!
I was wondering about something.
I often make drawings and paintings. Sometimes with oil paints, watercolors and acrylics.
But these days also with Copic Markers, and noticed that people sometimes feel that it is less 'art' because of the material I used.

I myself feel that art is not defined by the material it is made off, but I wondered about this. In the end the image is made by me, comes from my brain. And it does not matter so much what I used to put it out there. But maybe others differ. I am curious about this Smiley

Do you feel artworks feel less as 'art' when they are made of Copic Markers or other modern materials, instead of for example watercolors, oil paint, acrylics etc?

Copic marker drawings, with sometimes details of white paint:
