My first attempt at making little peg people... 😊 They are so simple & crude, yet seeing them smiling in the light makes my wee heart so happy. We are always on the floor now, engaged in some craft or other, making a delightful mess. Instead of thinking about the things I can’t do with a baby, I challenge myself to get creative... what CAN I do with my babe, things I’ve never thought of before These were made of salt & flour, totally safe to play in. And @deartahvy had such a joyful time while I got my precious art time in. So thankful for these days & the precious reminder of the creative essence we are. 🙏🏼✨
I'm always in the process of putting together my dream studio, which actually was one of my new years resolutions this year. I dream about something bigger though. It's very cramped up in my little room. But for now I have all the storage room I need 😄 .
So this is what I've been working on this weekend. My hubby even went to IKEA for me so I could create my new arts and crafts corner! 😍 I would've loved to have gone to IKEA myself, or with the family, but with the kids and everything it wouldn't have fit in the car lol.
Long story, I was residing in the kitchen with my craft supplies for the past few months, because in recent years my office got too small to draw/paint/craft/sew etc. Especially when we added the 3D printer and Silhouette it just got too cramped in there.
So I made myself a "little" art/crafting corner in the living room. I moved all my art supplies here, as well as my craft stuff. This way I can be with the kids and still do work/have fun. Win-win!
It's also great because the hubby can watch TV/read books/magazines/play a game or two on the PS4 on the sofa next to me while I'm crafting here. We like to spend time together, even though we may not always be doing the same things.
I'll probably show more pics later, especially when the Christmas decorations come around haha 💕🎄 #rosiesstudio #rosanasstudio #missdesign #retrohugs #wwdwwd #wherewedowhatwedo #desk #studio #crafting #workspace #workplace #artstudio #lawnfawn #tsukineko #memento #versamagic #lightbox #copic #copics #copicmarkers #CopicColors #copicart #plannergirl #planner #lawnfawnatics #flowmagazine
Absolutely love rust and the rainbow of colours that occur from oxidized metal.
Do you see the colours I see
Blues, purples, reds, green, browns, gold, and white. Rust is such a gorgeous material.
This lightswitch cover was picked up at Tommy Thompson park which is a man-made island spit that narrowly stretches out into the lake on Toronto's East end. Great place to hike because it's a gorgeous home to a variety of birds that are never seen in the city due to it's seclusion. A really remarkable place and my favorite park here because of it's unique landscape. The beaches are full of eroded bricks, rubble, and decades old metal scrap that protrudes from the ground at random places. If you have read some of my other posts you would understand why I enjoy such a place...nature eroding built materials...my thing.
In this drawing I used white acrylic paint coupled with a white charcoal pencil to create the highlights.
Primo 59-W charcoal pencil, Chinamarker, Copic 0.03 black liner, Derwent procolour pencils, Graphite powder, Windsor & Newton white acrylic paint.
