Tulip Flower Bouquet. Watercolor on 250 gsm watercolor paper, A4 size. February 2016. We were given small flower bouquets at work last week for Valentine's Day and I decided to paint mine. It's nice to sometimes draw and paint from life rather than from a photo. I planned out the composition and…

A couple of months before my last birthday, I decided I wanted to start making speed painting videos for Youtube and asked for a tripod for my birthday. My first videos turned out to be travel diaries, because those were a lot easier to film. By now I've also made some DIY tutorial and speed art…

Ivy Lily Crafts
Julkaistu vuosi sitten

I updated my acrylic painting related art supplies last year. Apparently you should varnish your acrylic paintings to protect them. So a varnish was my first purchase. I wanted a matt varnish, but I could only find a gloss one so that's what I got. I varnished four of my acrylic canvas paintings…

I kept my one blogging goal for 2015 quite well: 1-2 blog posts per week (on average). I slipped only on a couple of fall months. And I published the highest amount of blog posts per year in the history of this blog (still not a huge amount though). I also started a Youtube channel for art and DIY…

Tänäkin vuonna piti käydä katsomassa Koiramäen Pajutallin joulutunnelmaa. Jouluvalot paloivat Pajutallin pihalla jo marraskuun puolivälissä. Ja myymälä oli täynnä joulukoristeita ja -herkkuja. Pajutallin pihakoristeista suosikkejani olivat alla olevan kuvan pöllöt. Kanilan pupuasukit…

These Spring flower sugar watercolor paintings turned out pretty nice (some of them anyway) so I decided to make them again with a Christmas theme this time. I, again, painted them with my 4-year-old-niece. For colors we used red, green and blue watercolor with some dots of gold acrylic paint to…

Decorated box number 6. If I counted right. And it's another diamond collage. I've now used that style for boxes, cards, flower pots and a painting. I made this one while having a flu (and the last one while having chickenpox...). It's not the fastest way to cover a box so it's good for times when…

Vuoden viimeinen mökkikerta taitaa olla käytynä. Ehdimme viime viikonloppuna vielä metsään ennen hirvestyskauden käynnistymistä, toisin kuin viime vuonna. Metsäreissuilta saatiin saaliiksi sekä marjoja, sieniä että siemeniä. Puolukkakausi taisi olla parhaimmillaan, mutta suurin osa…
