Happy Sunday.

14 Oct

A few days ago I shared a picture of a watercolor thing I made and I finally found a quote I liked. I drew it up and was pretty happy with it then attempted to put it on my watercolor.

Since I had no way of transferring it, it turned out horribly. =[. I’ll have to work on that…

How well are your kerning skills?

Cool design blog.

Rainy days are best for..

13 Oct

Rainy days are best for sitting at home, drinking coffee, and attempting to get crafty.

Rainy days are best for finding strange stuff on Etsy.

Not that this lady didn’t do a fantastic job on what I imagine are shrinky dinks…..just a little creepy.

Rainy days are best for exploring new apps. Like Craftsy.

I don’t really do a whole lot of these types of crafts but I like to attempt jewelry stuff and i don’t know, maybe some of it looks cool. I just really liked the idea of the app. Youre able to subscribe to classes and then can watch videos about what you subscribed to. And it’s all free!

Rainy days are best for sitting down to actually finish a project. Something I rarely do.
Here’s my inspiration for the day..

You should definitely look at the rest of this.

All of these.

What are rainy days for you?

Terrific Tuesday?

9 Oct

I get television tomorrow after a horrible 5 month break. So today I must finish all my projects before I get super distracted. Probably won’t happen but here’s what I’m aiming to doing today..

I made this cool watercolor thing the other day just playing around. Now I’m looking for a quote to put on it. For some reason my mind keeps seeing it in the bathroom and looking for quotes the first one I saw was ‘quit slackin and make shit happen.’ Ha. Ha. My day has been too dull…

Here’s some stuff..

This is a very cool concept. ‘Wind Drawing’, what a creative way to keep track of the weather or something.

I feel the need to share this recipe. I finally made something and it tasted so good. Not that it requires any skill but you’d be surprised the things I mess up..

Watercolor under my nails.

7 Oct

Yesterday on Pinterest I saw these really cool watercolored business card so I had to try and I’m pretty excited about it.

20121007-091840.jpg
Not bad huh? But now I have all these cards I’m not sure what to do with…
Here is the original.

And for today I think I’m going to make this out of thread. Except I only have printer paper left so well see how this works out.

What are you making today?

A little bit of everything.

29 Sep

Today I’ll be spending my day being completely unproductive. It’s just hard to be motivated when the only thing you have to do is clean. Oh well… Here are some cool distractions for your day..

Murals are so cool to me because I just don’t get how they keep track of what they are doing. Especially something so intricate. How do you keep track of the big picture? More.

Some interesting/cool things on this Flickr stream.

Hope your not tired of paper art yet..

20120929-112200.jpg
I’ve been really obsessed with work/studio spaces lately..More.

20120929-112348.jpg

And business cards and such.

Type Fan?

I’ll leave you with this…

Some Things

18 Sep

Firstly, has any one heard of/ gone to the Academy of Art. Thinking about taking online classes for graphic design this spring and I’m slightly excited and very nervous. School hasn’t worked out so well for me in the past due to my quick changing mind. But I really think its time for me to take the plunge.

Here are some things that have inspired me today.

Make Something Cool Everyday

16 Sep

Such a cool idea. Doesn’t matter how detailed it is, just make something. Deeper ideas can stem from that

I initially found this post on Bored Panda but I clicked through to get to this guys actual website and it is so neat. Lots of great inspiration. Check out everything he made for a year and definitely check the rest of his art out.

My project today is to finish up the rest of my drawing. Every time I look at it I fall more in love with those letters. Probably going to end up making the whole alphabet soon.
