2  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Discussion and Questions / Is artwork less 'art' when it is made with Copic markers? on: November 21, 2013 12:08:22 AM
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:

3  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / New glass tree pendants on: November 20, 2013 11:54:54 PM

I made some fused glass pendants again, with handpainted trees on top. Just wanted to show them as it has been a while since I made anything! Smiley
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / A new type of wooden pendants on: September 25, 2013 08:05:05 AM
I started making some new pendants with wood, in a different way then before. First I made dragonflies, but now I like to burn small drawings by hand into wooden disks.
Just wanted to show it and see if people like it! Smiley I really enjoy making these.

Any ideas about what else you would like to see on wood?

5  GLASS CRAFTS / Glass Crafts: Completed Projects / New fused glass pendants :) on: May 15, 2012 11:41:01 AM
Hey there! Smiley
This week I decided that I wanted to make more fused glass pendants with trees painted on them.  I made some designs first, on paper, and then started cutting the right glass.
I fused the glass today and yesterday, and then painted the tree on by hand.
I hope you guys like it Smiley

I made one more but the pictures of it will come later on.
6  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Completed Projects / Wood carving with a dremel on: February 15, 2012 08:54:10 AM
Yesterday I suddenly started carving wood with a dremel that I have (and have been having for years). I discovered that its really nice to work on wood this way Smiley and I finished a heart.
Here you can see the result and the materials I used.

I`m going to make more of these I think, I love wood and its possibilities! And I love cute little hearts that one can hold it his/her hand.
Wood can feel very soft to the touch, very suitable for hearts to hold in your hands ^_^
7  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / More bracelets ^_^ on: February 15, 2012 08:51:26 AM
New bracelets ^_^
This time with wooden beads that are 6 mm big, the other ones where 3 mm so thats a big difference!
The cord I used is cotton wax cord.

I just love making bracelets these days Smiley lol, its quite fun!

Hey there Smiley
I came up with these new bracelets this week and I wondered about what people think of it. I used natural materials, like cotton waxcord, cotton, raffia and glass seed beads.

Please dont mind the numbers, I needed that for something else Smiley

Making these is becoming a big addiction, I love it! Lol, but not sure if its useful.
9  MORE ART, LESS CRAFT / More Art, Less Craft: Completed Works / New butterflies on: January 13, 2012 12:30:25 PM
Lol, I made another one (I just like butterflies.. Smiley)
I was not sure if I should put it in the tutorial topic with the other butterflies or not. For this one I do not have tutorial pictures so I decided to make a topic for it. I hope that this is how I should do it.

I also made a small aceo, the same butterfly only smaller, here you also see the aceo. I just scanned them up top of each other, so cannot show them separately.

And here only the big one.

lol Smiley if you guys are beginning to get tired of my butterflies, please let me know  Cheesy
10  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / I tried to bake some cake, but have a question :) on: December 16, 2011 06:25:49 AM
I am not a very good cook, I do not have a lot of experience. But I decided that I wanted to be able to bake cake, and started trying. I wanted to put the products together myself, instead of bying cake-mix that is already made perfect.
I tried three times now, and there does seem to be some progress. The one on the top-left was the second try and the one below the tirth.

The cake rizes, and the color looks ok, the taste was also fine. But the structure was odd, too.. heavy? Not sure what word to use but it seems like that there is not enough air inside. Its too compact.
I was hoping for some advice on this Smiley it would be lots of fun to be able to make a good cake.

The products that I used are:
-150 grams of sugar
-150 grams of self raising flour (I hope I translate it right)
-75 grams of butter
-75 grams of curd (again I hope the translation is right. I mean a type of yoghurt that is more sturdy then yogurt. It was put in the recipe to give the cake a less drie bite and to make the cake less fatty)
-vanilla extract
-a bit of salt
-3 eggs

55 minutes in the oven on 150 degrees (celcius)

What in all of this is wrong? Is the curd causing the problem, or the oven time/temperature, or something else? Smiley
