Russian Doll and Peacock Feathers |

Ivy Lily Crafts
Julkaistu 2 vuotta sitten

More illustrated tote bags! I painted peacock feathers and a matryoshka doll on a black tote bag I had sewn myself. I sketched the image with a white colored pencil and then painted over it using red and white fabric paint and a paint brush. After that the procedure is the same as with this fabric…

Doll Face Flower. Acrylics on canvas, 30 x 30 cm, May 2014. I got the idea for a flower with a doll's face from a plate in a magazine and made my own version of the theme. I also had fun painting make-up for the flower's face. I blended blue, pink and purple for the background. See progress photos…

Ivy Lily Crafts
Julkaistu 2 vuotta sitten

I decorated another tote bag. I sewed the bag myself quite a while ago and painted the elephants one day last autumn while listening to one of Henning Mankell's Wallander audio books. I was having a break from work/study for a few days and my way to unwind was to go pick mushrooms and do crafty…

Ivy Lily Crafts
Julkaistu 2 vuotta sitten

The Ironman triathlon was held in Alcudia, Mallorca at the time of our trip and there were a lot of cyclists around. We, too, rented bikes from the hotel one day and took a bike ride to the beautiful Port de Pollença. (They only lent bikes, not helmets.) So here are views from the road and from…

Julkaistu 2 vuotta sitten

I decorated yet another box. This is one where I keep some of my paints and other art supplies. The box was originally silver color and I covered it by making a collage of diamond (or rhombus) shaped magazine cut-outs. I drew a shape I liked on grid paper, cut it out (if you fold the paper first…

Kimono DIY

Ivy Lily Crafts
Julkaistu 2 vuotta sitten

I haven't been sewing in a long time but lately I've been wanting to start again. So I made this beach kimono for my Gran Canaria trip (I came back last week). I used lightweight, flowy fabric that's a bit transparent. It's easiest to make a kimono of a big scarf, but I didn't have one. I bought…

These are letters and cards I've sent a long time ago (2012-2013) that never made it to the blog for one reason or another. But I found the photos and wanted to share them with you. The first summery letter on penguin paper and a moomin card in a transparent envelope was sent to Norway. I made the…

Recycled Treasure Box for a Little…

Ivy Lily Crafts
Julkaistu 2 vuotta sitten

I made a decorated treasure box for my niece so of course I made one for my nephew as well. It's easiest to use an old shoebox for this, but I didn't have any of those at hand so I used a copy paper box again. I cut it a bit lower and made the lid a bit looser. And then I glued on magazine pages…

Ivy Lily Crafts
Julkaistu 2 vuotta sitten

The next thing I have to show you from Mallorca is this aborable ceramics store in Manacor, in the east side of Mallorca. The visit was part of an organized trip and the guide called this a "junk store". But I thought these colorful pieces were really cute. Seuraavaksi Mallorcalta on pakko…

I saw the instructions of this twig heart in some magazine on the plane last spring. There are different types of twig hearts you could make, but I like this one with the curly tail. Bongasin tämän risusydämen ohjeen jostain lehdestä lentokoneessa viime keväänä. Risusydämistä voi tietysti…

Spring Colors and Patterns

Ivy Lily Crafts
Julkaistu 2 vuotta sitten

Some pops of color for Spring. New colorful sneakers and Aztec patterned leggins. I don't know if it's a cute combination or if it makes me look like a clown. And below a tunic I got from Madeira and a dress I got from Mallorca with similar themes. Kevään väripilkkuja. Uudet värikkäät…

La Seu Now that the Madeira posts are done, I'll continue these "travel Mondays" with Mallorca (or Majorca). So these photos are from last May. Our hotel was in Alcudia, which is a beach resort. But we had a one day trip to the capital, Palma. It was an unorganized trip, we just took the bus from…
