Sorry for the long delay since my last post, I’ve been shopping like crazy due to the riot art and craft shop near us closing down.
Everything is half price and the canvases which were already marked down were half that price again! I got a 30″ by 40″ canvas for about $16!!
Now to actually paint a picture on the mammoth thing…
Anyway that’s where all my energies have been going. Crash courses in canvas paintings, practising brush techniques on smaller canvases and art pads. Busy busy busy.
Sketching a picture, changing a few pats of the composition, rubbing the whole thing out and starting again
Can’t wait to show you the progress as it happens though! Keep an eye on this spot for updates soon!
I’m still working towards my market stall and I feel like I’m getting closer everyday and I’m getting excited! But I was thinking that while I work towards that I might have a look at selling on Etsy.
I’ve made some cute little charms for bracelets and necklaces and am hoping people would be keen to get those!
Has anyone ever sold on Etsy before? What was your experience? Was it easy, hard, didn’t really bother you? I worry about having to supply and send off the charms and i something happens or they get lost you know?
So I’ve been working hard and even got a swanky new printer (I needed one anyway so it just worked out well) but I now have a way of creating Prints of my art! Yeee! I’ve been creating some watercolour pictures, with a theme of elegant skulls, where they’re animal skull masks. Animals have some crazy looking skulls! I think Ram and Bull skulls are my personal favourites but the Bird I did looks pretty 🙂
I’ll have the prints available for sale too if I ever get to a market. I’m checking out Sunbury Village Market this Saturday so fingers crossed its the right environment I’m after!
Here are the few I’ve done so far, let me know what you think!
So I’ve been really eager on the idea of making a heap of little crafties and getting a stall at a market to sell them. Last market I checked out to see if it would be worth selling was a trash and treasure market which was…. mostly trash and less treasure.
Although there was a moment of hilarity when my partner and I found an old box tucked away in one of the stalls that had porn on VHS tapes. Boy that takes you back, VHS porn, lol!
Anyway we’re going to check out our local rotary market this Saturday and if all goes well I shall get a stall for next month!
All the little mandala stones and owls and things I’ve been working on are what I want to sell along with some original canvas work and hopefully some cute little watercolour prints! Might get some more ideas while we’re there as well! If I see anything super interesting I’ll post a picture for you guys!
Hey! So I’ve spent some time playing with my style and trying all sorts of new things. I’ve busted out my India Ink (Speed Ball brand) and my inking nibs. I love the feel of the non scraping the paper and catching on the fibers as I Ink.
So excited to show off what just arrived!!
My chameleon pens! If you don’t know they are these really cool pens that you can soak the colour from one onto another allowing you to shade with the alcohol based pen from one colour to another seemlessly.
You can make gradients with one pen!! It’s so cool! *Not a paid promotion too btw
I supported them on kick starter And the finally arrived!! I may try colouring in the cards that came with it or one of my own pictures.
I’ll keep you posted!
So I’ve also got some cards left over from my big watercolour sit and smash out earlier this year that I’ll be selling at the market when I go 🙂
Found this cute little tutorial for “origami” book marks. The tutorial was for a love heart but I’m thinking cute little animals like birds or foxes would be super cute too!
Turns out my first post didn’t post! Take two!
I’ve been crafting little nick nacks and things because I’m interested in selling at a market! I’ve made bottled nebulas and the aforementioned candle cups!
The nebulas are pretty cool and easy to make. The candles took a bit more work 😅
And here they are! The picture of the candle cups I promised. I’ll be honest I think they turned out great!!
