Cupcakes :)

I drew that today :) I like how it came out, but it doesn't look good scanned. The shadows came out red, when they are nothing like that in person! If I adjust the red colour the cherry would be pale.. any ideas how to fix it?

I was really tired today when I got home form the uni, so I decided to take a short break from all the projects and paint a little :) Hope you are doing great!

The Fountainhead

I haven't been feeling quite well recently and I am pretty much spending my days in bed with a good book. It is called "The Fountainhead" by Ayn Rand and I love it! I highly recommend it to anyone who likes smart writing. I wanted to share a short quote with you :)

Inspiration Boards

Since I am such a fan of inspiration boars I decided to share some with you. The best thing is that you can easily make them yourself :)


You can easily make this magnet board yourself! You can either get one and just add fabric and a fancy frame, or you can make it all by yourself. Just make sure to use zinc-coated steel, which is
strong enough to hold the magnets. You can also use cork and make it a pinboard if you prefer.


This one is very easy to make. I am pretty sure almost everyone has an old tray laying around in the house, collecting dust. You can easily turn it into magnet board - you only have to attach a picture hanger at the back and you are done!


If you don't want your favorite pictures to have holes from the pins, you might want to try a ribbon board - easy to do and it has a vintage feel to it :)

A while ago I made an inspiration board myself. I used ribbon, some pretty paper and a frame I had. Here it is:


If you want to use a more interesting frame you can look at the flea market and even if it is not in it's best condition you can always paint it. This way the frame can be the same colour as your walls, making the notes and pictures in it be the colourful accent, or it can be a bright colour that really stands out - it is up to you :)

Summer


Yes, I know Spring just got here, but I can't help it :) I spend all day looking at bikinis and cute dresses, I want sunshine, I want sea, I want joy :) Ahhh.. Wishing you a lovely weekend! <3

Lora's Art



I have already mentioned about opening my etsy shop any time now. What I didn't mention was who I was going to open it with :) Lora is a friend of mine. We study art and architecture in the university together and we have very similar views to what beauty is. So here are some of Lora's works, hope you like them!
