The doodle bug has taken over and to be honest, I’m more zen because of it. Also, I’ve been selling my artwork for charity. The buyer can pay however much they want (above Rm50) for the artwork, and all proceeds go to an animal rescue charity.
This time, I was Buddha vibin’ big time;
So completely blessed that someone actually made a purchase to make a difference. Can’t wait for what’s next!
Of Buddha vibes & rainbow coloured hearts,
Taking a break from a constantly jewelry making spree, I’m fallen in love with doodling again. Free hand doodle on canvas; Coloured in; Doodling and colouring has been proven to be a therapeutic way to release stress. It’s been working pretty well on my end. The results of it all is so rewarding. Plus I have new artwork for my wall 🙂
Drawing rainbows as I go;
Been using the clay pot I painted for Ponggal as my brush holder; But clumsy me, I dropped it & had to remake another one. The end result this round, was much nicer; It turned out so pretty I almost feel guilty using it as a makeup brush holder. So for now, it’s just there to decorate my table;
Painting on pots,
Browsing through an old craft blog I created, I stumbled upon this tutorial that I published 5 years ago. Valentine’s Day fortune cookies!
I made these as little party favours & decided I’d share it here as well. Step One: Choose the colour you want your paper cookie to be. I usually use textured brown paper, to make it look more realistic but since it’s for Valentine’s Day, I opted for pink instead. Step Two: Draw a circle onto the paper. The bigger the circle, the bigger the cookie. I used a mini Starbucks cup to get the circle because I wanted mine small. Step Three: Cut it out. Fold the circle in half, make sure you do not crumple or mess up the circle. Step Four: Hold the paper as shown in the picture. Make sure you do not press it down.Step Five: Bring the two end sides together. When you do that, the middle part will fold in. If you want it to look more realistic, fold it slightly the off center, so it won’t be too perfect. I did mine right in the middle be & it’ll look like this: Step Six: Cut a strip of paper to write your fortune/love note on (mine was along the lines of “You are so lucky you have me!”) 😛 Make sure it’s small enough to fit inside the fortune cookie & long enough to be pulled out of it.Step Seven: Place the note inside & try bending to see how it looks like. Once satisfied, glue it down. Step Eight: Leave it to dry and then you are done! You can also create a little takeout box to put it in like this:These are a great idea for a Chinese theme party, get together(s) & your options are only limited to your imagination!
