Art materials

Last week i worked on my photography section on my website so that is now up and running Here. Not much else creativity-wise :(

And this week due to many things i am unable to make stuff :( so instead as i am getting ready for my holiday to Devon next week, I thought i would share what art materials i am going to take.

Here is my Watercolour travel bag:
It was a present many many years ago from my aunt, and it holds everything!


The brush compartment is attached by Velcro so its able to come out. Here i have a little water bottle, a HB pencil with rubber attached, Ruling pen (for Masking fluid) two water brushes (one broad and one medium) a little spray mister, some Derwent Watercolour pencils. Then the brushes are Winsor and Newton sables and Premier sables and one Chinese brush.

This is all the stuff from the zipped compartments. two boxes of Winsor and Newton watercolours plus some tubes. Sponges and kitchen roll, a spray bottle, a little bottle of salt, an expanding water container, and a folding palette.

And this is all my drawing equipment. Uni Pin drawing pens, Faber-Castell pencils and clutch pencils. Two putty rubbers, normal rubber, pencil shaped rubber and sharpeners.

and that's all the equipment i take on painting days out (plus paper of course!)

An update

So to start off: I finally made the other two angry birds to complete my collection (and no i am not including the irritating green boomerang bird, i refuse to acknowledge its existence lol) i like how the black bird turned out, and the white one i was pleased with until i put its eye liner on and its waaaaaay too dark now, also hes quite a bit smaller then he should be.

Some more love hearts were made yesterday (50 to be exact) so after they have the backs varnished they will be ready to assemble into more bracelets.

Also some Oreos, as my etsy shop had all the oreo earrings stock i needed to make some more for Folksy.
I think these are my best ones yet :)

And look what the postman brought me! yummy buttons and ribbon from LovePaperFish on Etsy

So i can now start planning some bracelets and decorations in time for the Jubilee and Olympics.

Right this isn't getting my Love hearts varnished is it?

Fly away home..

...Little ladybird.

Well those little green and red blobs from my previous post have been transformed! after several hours of painting, varnishing and gluing the little ladybirds are ready to fly away to a new home! if you would like to give one of these little critters a home head over to my Folksy or Etsy :)

Busy busy..

Where to start? I have a Pinterest now http://pinterest.com/dragonsdust/ and its so much fun! new addiction methinks :)

I was making some more fimo yesterday, currently the little green and red blobs are waiting for some acrylic paint to turn them into leaves and ladybirds. The Oreos are waiting for the filling and then another bake. The Fried eggs are all glossed and waiting for the findings to turn them into earrings.

My etsy has been restocked and the above fimo will be  listed on my Folksy when they are finished.

And just for fun here is a bowl of yummy buttons, i luff buttons, nom nom nom.
