drawing challenge

And what a challenge it was!!! This time the challenge was hosted by wonderfull WOOLF and her theme is "Mandala" and the good old spirograph (find out more about these two things on the tinyWOOLF blog). I immediatly got excited because I did get a spirograph as a kid. I search for it and found it! And because I'm working on a personal challenge to get more relaxed and less stressed out, the Mandala theme was perfect! So it seems... My positive energy was gone in 5 minutes and I really got frustrated: I simply couldn't make nice Mandala's! My pen slipped away and I ruined one after another. I'm not made for doing this! I'm the kind of girl who finds peace in colouring Mandala's someone else has made, that's peacefull! Maybe I'll give it anoher try someday. Thank you for this challenge: I again have learned something about myself: I really have to work on my stress-level;-) And I'm sorry, this was the best I could do:

You can find more Mandala's on WOOLF's blog. I wish you all a nice weekend!

my own little world

While searching for something at our addic I found an old wooden wine box of my dad. A box were they transport wine in if you buy it. The more expensive the wine, the more beautiful and better the box is.  I ask him if I could have the box and transformed it into another nice little rack for my little stuff (and I have a lot of it!) I painted it white but on the side you can still see the " grand vin du france". I put in on a wall which I papered with mostly pages of the dutch magazine Flow. These small things make me happy. I wish you a all a good week!

no, this is not a test

Well, that is not completely truth: at first this dinner plate was a test, including the plates I made before this one. All because of my search for a water resistant marker to draw on porcelain. And now I found one and I started drawing on an old dinner service of my grandma. To be honest I'm really happy with it, I like the colour blue and also the combination of my drawing and the flowers on the plate. Now I start drawing on the rest of the set and I also want to try out some other plates. It will be water resistant but not scratch resistant...
What do you think of it?

learn to say please

This is the last big drawing I made and I wanted to show you a better picture then the one I showed you here where I'm standing in front of it. This one is a bit different then the rest of the drawings but I like it and I feel sorry for her, even if you can't be sure that maybe she just did something very bad...
What do you think?

Pippi and Mister Nilsson

Yesterday this beautiful necklace arrived, it made my day! It's so perfect, like it's especially made for me to wear it. It fits beautiful with the drawings I make, perfect inspiration and funny and the same time. It's made by Karamboola. If you like nostalgic jewellery you should definitly check out her shop!
I wish you all a nice weekend!

searching for cheese

Actually, these two cute little mouses are searching for chocolate. This weekend we had a family trip to a amusement park in Germany. I still don't feel like my old self but I really wanted to go and just have a nice day. And this park had a new ride "maus au chocolate" about a backery which has trouble with mouses and you can find the two in my drawing at the entrance.

And thank you for the nice comments on my last post, it really does a lot for my self-confidence!

crashing into something new

Yesterday I had some visitors: an art-committee who is interested in my work. I don't know if it's going to work out, so I don't want to say to much about it. Maybe it was just this visit and that's it, apart from making room in our living room to hang the drawings which was an evening of work. But at least it gave me another opportunity to hang my drawings and to try something new with an older drawing next to the new ones. The one I'm standing in front of is a drawing I just finished. I will post a better picture of it next week.

closer and closer

The summer is sneaking away and you can feel that autumn is slowly coming. In the morning and in the evening it's already a bit colder. I don't mind, I love the autumn with its beautiful colours. So I made this drawing to welcome a hopefully beautiful autumn in about three weeks. I wish you all a good start in the new week!
