Holiday Cards

I can't believe the year is almost over!  I am excited for Christmas. I love that time of the year, all the decorations, meeting with family and friends, the music and so much more! I know its still early, not even thanksgiving yet but I thought I get a head start on Christmas Cards.

I had a lot of fun creating these. This year I bought some craft paper cards to try, and love the look! It gives the cards a more natural look to them.  Some of my ideas were inspired from others on pinterest, just changed them up a little to make them my own! Here are a few that I recently made. More to come soon! =)

Hands on Projects

Lately been trying to keep busy and inspired with different new projects.  I thought it be fun if I gave myself a new project to work with every now and then.  Just to stay busy and be inspired by new things!  So last few weeks I made a few new things!

Below is a necklace holder I made. I painted a piece of wood I got from Michaels and added a piece of corkboard.  I inserted brads (surprisingly it holds the necklaces!)  I really liked how it came out.  I think it be cute to make and give as a gift.

I saw something while browsing pinterest (love this site) and it was cookie cups.  I thought I try it and the result came out very different than the one online. I used pre-made cookie dough instead of from scratch. The cup wasn't perfect but it was delicious.  I used the back of of a cupcake pan to create the shape of the cup.  After a scoop of s'more ice cream to finish it off!

This week I saw a project online where you can transfer photos onto wood. Its done in just a few simple steps! Below is actually my test one and it came out better than I expected.  I did it as a test first to see the outcome. After I saw the result, I did the transfer again but instead on a wood tissue box. It was a gift for my cousin (will upload pictures soon!) For this project all I used was gel medium to transfer the photo onto the wood and then I added mod podge on top of it when it dried to give it a shine!

Some new stuff

Hello! Its been a while since I posted! If you have been reading this I love if you can also check me out on Become a fan! =) thanks!

So I just finished a baby scrapbook for a wonderful friend of mine who is having twins! A boy and a girl. It took a while but I enjoyed making it along with the outcome. She is having a boy and a girl so it was tough finding baby scrapbook things, so I did it to the color scheme she had set up for the twins.  below are just some of the page layouts I did!

 It was a friend's birthday, and I haven't customized a guy's card before till now! So I thought I do his name.  Otherwise it would have been something cute or pretty!
Hoping to get more stuff done to post!

Something new..

Lately haven't really had the time to sit down and work on some illustrations/cards, hopefully soon! I will try to update more here, but was thinking about making a new blog/tumblr for not just illustrations but maybe both crafts and drawings. Since lately have been doing a lot of hand made things! But for now here is a little update of lately..

I made a Jack Skellington card for a friend's birthday. I liked how it came out and was happy with it. Think I will try more characters in the near future.

Other than that lately just been teaching more art classes, thought I share a few of my student's work. Enjoy!
The idea of this project was exaggerate ice cream, and have each one a different design. Also to learn about proportions (drawing themselves)

But if you read this and have facebook I also made a page for my artwork please check it out!
