I was thinking of an unusual way to wish everyone who follows my blog Happy Easter and just before I went to bed I came up with the idea to make Angry Birds Easter eggs and I HAD to share it right away! :-)
For some time now I have been pondering on the idea to make something that would resemble a real fabric design.
When I was presented with the idea to make a gift for the baby shower of my son's teacher I wasn't sure where to start. Then I found out she likes a particular Potter Barn Kids comforter and I thought wouldn't it be nice if I actually made a whole gift set based on that design. It took me a couple of days to figure out how exactly I should do it but at the end I think I did very well.
No, I'm not sad nor depressed, relax! :-) I'm talking about feeling blue as a color, with every fiber of your body. I have never liked blue before, as a matter of fact I have been avoiding working with it. Recently I can't help but notice that my work is gravitating towards this color.
Did you ever feel you would love it if someone gives you a gift that you created? This is what happened to me when I was creating this gift set. I totally would have loved to receive this one, no doubt about it.
I love this kind of "rustic/nature friendly" look with all the warm colors.
So if any of you ever wonder what I would like, take a look at this:
* Watercolor, ink and Copic marker drawing on watercolor paper, 9"/12"size
How is it possible?! Seriously, it's Spring already ( technically) and it's snowing! Absolutely outrageous, Mr. April should really think about his behavior, because I'm getting tired of all these hats and scarves, and layers, and layers of clothes.
I dream of a hot sunny day, of flip-flops and ice cream, a cold lemonade with lemon pulp and fresh mint...Aaaah.
Well, as for now, I'll have to just draw in warm colors and think positive, summer it's not that far ( I hope).
