Pop art-ische self portraits

21 Mar

So I was going through some of my older drawing and photos ( so much fun and embarrassment!)  and I find these ! still one of my favorites I’ve ever made because of the pop art-ische style, plus  I used crayons to do these which I never did before or really any other time.

These drawing are actually based on an even older photo of myself

DIY cinnamon candle

So here is another super easy DIY tutorial ! I’ve made this cinnamon candle before as a Christmas gift to my sister and this week I made one for my own house.

What you’ll need:

– Glue gun

– Candle

– Cinnamon sticks ( about the same height as your candle )

– Ribbon

Step 1

foto s iphone 20122013 497

Heat up your glue gun of course ! and when it is hot apply some glue onto a cinnamon stick, make sure you only apply it onto the bottom so that the glue won’t come in touch with the hot wax and fire when you light your candle. ( I don’t know if the glue is flammable but I am not planning on finding out ! )

Step 2

 quickly apply the cinnamon stick onto the candle and press it steady.

Step 3

keep doing this all the way around.

Step 4

Wrap a ribbon around it and tie a bow, now you are done!

Here is a link to a great turorial on howto tie a perfect bow: http://www.ellinee.com/blog/how-to-tie-a-perfect-bow/

Now isn’t that cute ! you can use any colour ribbon of course and also change it to match the seasons. Here one with a red ribbon that I made as a Christmas gift.

flower branch

6 Mar

So this is something I made today!

I spraypainted the branch using a sjabloom and then gluwed on the purple flowers which I cut out by hand.

foto (1)

it’s a little rough on the edges because I was just trying it out so I can maybe use this later in a bigger project : my sisters birthday present!  She asked me to make an artwork for on  her wall so I am busy trying out different ideas before I start with the real deal!

I’m pretty happy about the result but I would really love to hear what you think, so let me know!
