11  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Tree pendant on: November 20, 2014 01:50:27 AM
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!
12  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) / ATC cats ^_^ on: November 05, 2014 02:16:33 AM
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

14  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:

15  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
16  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?

17  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.
18  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 ^_^
19  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!
20  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Bracelets on: February 11, 2012 10:26:33 AM
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.
