More mandala's

Hello there,

Some more Mandala's I made the other day. One in blue and greens and one in pink colours. This time I added glitter to them too. I couldn't help myself. I just need glitter, haha.

This is just a very short post to share these two.

I hope you are feeling good today!

Black Saturday

Dear reader,

It's not black Friday lol, but in my world it's black Saturday, hehehe. I had to come up with an opening sentence on the eyecandy I wanted to share today and since I noticed ads everywhere naming black Friday, I came up with black Saturday as it IS Saturday and my earrings are all black toned. Oh how original I am huh, haha.

Anyway, this is my batch of black and silver beaded earrings I created recently.  My favorite ones are the ones on the left here with those Angel wings. Now that I see the picture up close and personal............. I wondered...... did I put the wings upside down? Mmmmm........... i'm always a kind of rebelious so it would match my personality, but somehow they seem odd to me, now I took a better look at them! What do you think? Are they upside down? Do you notice the difference, or am I the only one? When I would turn them I think the wings will look dreary and not positive, but mmmm...... I think these angels can't fly LOL.

I love the beads with the AB oil shine. Anything with iridescence always catches my special attention. I love it! I hope I could inspire you a bit today and will be back soon with more artsy stuff I made.

I hope you'll have a wonderful weekend.

Tranquility colouring

Dear reader,

It's been some days again since I posted. I hope this colourful post will find you well today!

Recently I bought some very pretty sets of mandala cards that you have to give colour yourself and so I took some time to play around with colours. It's my first try on mandala's. Never done this before, but I must say..... it's a great thing to do for relaxing and go back to your childhood! My colouring is really not perfect as i'm half blind, and so here and there you can see some imperfections, but alas........ that's life. I tried my best. I can't see these imperfections with my naked eye, but when I scanned the cards and zoomed in on them I noticed it's really really bad, haha. Anyway...... These cards are really cool. They are made of velvet! In realtime they are so pretty and feeling soft and the colours show so bright. I will now start to use them as a background for my cards, so in the near future you'll see them again in another form. Mandala colouring is so popular nowadays. I am amazed by the offers of pencils and books with patterns that are available. Sooooo much to choose from! I used what I had in stack when it comes to the pencils. I used Le Plume pencils, regular felt tips and gelpens for my mandala's. I now need to buy some better pencils and stuff. This can become my next addiction. I can recommend this type of art to anyone as it's so simple to do! I hope you'll enjoy the eyecandy for today.

Have a wonderful weekend!

She's a lady handmade vintage card

Hi there,

Again some time flew by since I wrote. In the meantime i'm one year older also. I had a wonderful birthday and really have feel blessed by all the wonderful gifts and love I received.

I'm still behind when it comes to sharing all the artsy things I created, so hop hop on with the goat, haha. Here is a handmade vintage style card I finished recently. I love the beautiful pinkish photo of this pretty vintage lady and have used it quite often in my art lately. This is a pretty simple card actually made by just using a lot of florals around the frame. That gorgeous bling butterfly was a find I got from a store in Germany where they had these in the curtain rod section. It's a magnetic butterfly which original purpose was to use it as a decorative item on a curtain, but I saw more for using it in my art, so that's why I took it home with me. When I go into a store I always look like a dragonfly with a multipurpose point of view. I find use for the offered items in many ways, always lol. Sometimes it makes me tired though as it's always quite complex thinking for me, but alas that's who I am. I hope this little blogpost finds you well. I'm going to prepare for the next one!

Have a wonderful day everyone!
