A weeks drawing with WorldWatercolorGroup Challange January part 3 & 4

Standard

Hello everybody!
So, now it’s no longer January but the second month of the February. This post is going to be about the last two weeks of the WorldWatercolorGroup January Challenge. Well I think that we just dive into it straight away then.
Day 16: Dandelions
As a child, I had several bunnies and my family and I always picked the dandelion leaves for them. I picked so many that they almost didn’t fit in my hand and that’s the memory that inspired this drawing.
Day 17: Candy
This is a marshmallow like candy that looks like a miniature ice cream and I tell you this, they were my favorite when I was maybe around 6 years old. I choose to draw a green one but pink and white once also exist. The first time I ate this candy was around Christmas time and it was actually a man dressed as Santa that offered me this candy and several other kids. I believe that is was during a Christmas market or something like that.

Day 18: Books
I had many books in my bookshelf during my childhood years and still have but the content has of course changed. When I think about books that I had as a kid many and many books comes to my mind but there was one book that was better than all the others. It was a book with filled with fairy tales. It contained one fairy tale for each day during a whole year, 365 sagas. That was my absolute favorite book because it was so versatile.

Day 19: Building Toy
I can say that I had some trouble with this task. I had to think quite some time before I decided to depict Duplo. My sibling and I had a whole box filled with Duplo with all the colors of the rainbow. I just made a fast drawing of some different colored Duplo. We also played with Lego but then we were a little older.

Day 20: Art Supplies
In the first grades of school we received a box of crayons. I actually still have one of those boxes but without going on a treasure hunt for it, I remember more or less how it looked like. The box was mostly red but was partly yellow and the part that the crayons laid was cardboard brown.

Day 21: Snacks
This was and kind of still is one of my favorite snacks. Its heart shaped chips with holes in them and I do believe that the flavor is something like sour cream or garlic.

Day 22: Insects
The lady bug is maybe one of the prettiest insects I know and I remember how I used to save them from drowning in the public outdoor pool in the summers. So, this was the first insect that came to my mind when I was going to do this drawing.

Day 23: Bicycle
I actually had a three-wheeled bike but because I painted directly from my head without any reference photos it medically got four wheels but I don’t really see it as a big problem but it’s a great example that the mind can play tricks on you.

Day 24: Grandmothers Jam (Altered by me)
I don’t know if it like that with everyone but at least I loved al the food that my grandmother prepared and no one else’s food could ever measure with grandmothers. In the end of summer or even in the middle of autumn we used to pick blackberries in the forest and then my grandmother made the loveliest jam I ever eaten, no store-bought jam can compare.
Day 25: Bubblegum
In the grocery shops where I grow up the almost always had the bubblegum at the cash register and then you suddenly realized that you needed bubblegum really bad. I was lucky though because both my mother and my grandmother loves to chew bubblegum and it so happened to be that we all liked the same brand which was package had very vivid colors.
Day 26: Imaginary Creature
I know for certainty that I did not have or created an imaginary creature as a child but if I did I think that it might could have looked something like this drawing.

Day 27: Kite
I seem to have a vague memory of a kite lying around our house and of course I think that I tried to fly with it but I can’t really recall to be honest. What I do know is that I looked quite the same as the one I captured on paper.

Day 28: Pancakes
The pancakes that I grew up with is nothing like the American pancakes. They are thin and more like the French crepe but a lot smaller, the size can actually vary from very small to quite big once. To pancakes we had and usually have whipped cream and some type of jam and if the occasion calls for it some fresh berries. We even have a special pancakes iron for the small once.

Day 29: Puzzles
I loved to lay puzzles when I was small and it so happen to be that I still enjoy it from time to time. My grandmother used to give me a new puzzle each year for Christmas and then my mom, grandmother, grandfather and I used to puzzle during the holidays. The motives I got could vary from flower fields to dogs in sun chairs. I had such nice memories with puzzles.

Day 30: Bubble wrap
I have never really been that fascinated about bubble wrap. I have of course played with it when we got a package home and something was wrapped with it. My brother and I actually liked to lay it out on the floor and jump up one it with our feet.

Day 31: Birthday cake
In my family, we usually always had two cake for every family member’s birthday. The reason for that was different taste buds and allergies. One the table at every birthday or festive occasion there was a kladdkaka, which is a gooey chocolate cake that is a must where I come from. The big purple cake was one of my favorite when I was about 8 years old maybe, it was an ice cream berry cake.

A flying invitation

Standard

Hello there!
Since I was absent for such a long time before this September it’s maybe not a surprise that I have a lot of older crafts that I would like to show you all. So every once in a while I thought that I will submit some posts that revolve around some of my older projects but I will of course also come with new stuff.
The craft that I will show you in this post is my handmade graduation invitations. I made these last year for my own graduation. I have a thing for butterflies and I have always loved these small creatures. I loved them so much as a child, that my childhood bedroom had to be covered with butterfly wallpaper.
I got the idea and design for this project from Pinterest, but I drew my own stencils so I got the invitations exactly how I wanted them to be. I made the cards from hard white hard scrapbooking paper and then I decorated the butterflies with patterned scrapbooking paper. The envelopes are that I used are the usual type that I think you can find almost anywhere. I made a stencil of the envelope’s inside, then I used it to cut out the envelopes shape on the printed papers. To decorate the inside of the envelopes with the printed paper I used double-sided tape. I put some string around the cards to finish of the invitations summery look. I thought that it would be more fun if the cards were different, so that everyone received a specialized invitation.
I hope you had a nice time in this little post.
I wish you all a good evening, night, morning or day wherever you may be on this earth.

Clay is back, once again

Standard

Hi once again!
This time I haven’t been away long. So today I wanted to show you all a present I made some months ago to a driving teacher. I made a model car out of fimo clay and decorated it’s sorundings with suiting things like a map and a suitcase. This clay creation was the first one I made in a really long time and it was also my biggest and most advanced clay work ever. Thereafter i just continued to work with fimo clay and as you could see in my previous post the size of the clay crafts are just getting bigger and bigger. On the  license plate is the teachers name written in small letters, but i blurred it in these pictures.
Have good evening, day or morning wherever you may be on this Earth.

I return with more crafts

Standard

Hi!

It’s been an incredibly long time since i posted anything here on my little blog. I have decided to give it a new try and hopefully i sticking with it this time. I have still been doing my crafty things, but I have some periods when I draw more and some when i create in clay more. So the content in this blog is not only going to be devoted to one type of craft but several. Right now I’m in my clay period so it’s only fimo clay that’s on my mind but of course I also paint and create other things ocasionally.

So the first thing I’m going to show you is a present i made just some days ago for my grandfather’s birthday. It’s a wooden box and one of the side are covered with clay figures and are suppose to resemble my grandparents when they were younger. I sadly don’t have a tuturial on this one but I will try to make with my next fimo clay project.

I hope you enjoyed this little reading session and my clay craft.

Have a nice evening, day or morning depending on where you are on this earth
