{Covered in Feather}

I really need to work on my entry tittles.
I love feathers. As simple as that. I bought some a month ago to put on a gift for a friend and I got an extra one. I turned that one into a pen. Last Sunday I was playing around with it and it cast a shadow in my sketchbook so I decided to draw some of them:

After trying different styles I end up liking the little one on the bottom right better:
  • Mechanical Pencil {HB}
  • Pencils {3B, 4B, 7B}
  • Sketchbook.

{Messy mess}

Hi and welcome to my crib workroom.
Alright so here is where I do everything involving painting, crafting, drawing and whatnot.
I've got several things from NYC from the time I went to see the American Idiot Musical on my cork-board:

Some little details, including my Norwegian flag, matryoshka necklace and my laptop:
So yeah, this is basically my work room, the stuff I use and some other little things that I own.

{Latin for "and"}

I got this 8" x 8" canvas a long time ago. While searching for DIY projects, I ended up here. It's a cool project yet simple to do. I decided to give it a try and end up with this:
  • Canvas.
  • Acrylics {White, Crimson}

{Hello Ze Strokes!}

Oh you know...
More The Strokes stuff. I needed a case for my computer and I came across this plain black and red one. Boring plain stuff I can't live with so I made a little something:
I was planing on painting the white part too when I realize I didn't have any white fabric paint. I end up using a piece of orange Foamy {since I didn't have white} and painted it white.

  • Plain Computer Case.
  • Foamy.
  • Acrylic paint.
  • Fabric Paint.
  • Glue Gun.

{No, no, no}

That day when everything simply sucked. This canvas probably has around 4 layers of different paintings I did but disliked right away. I ended up spray painting it with black and simply did this.
  • Canvas.
  • Spray Paint {Black}
  • Acrylic.


Cherry Blossom.
Hey there! Yesterday I was looking at different Japanese art at Flickr and there is something about it that I really love. I wanted to try something my self and this is what I end up painting:
  • Water Colors.
  • Canson.

{Reptilia Valensi}

Oh Nick Valensi.
I got bored yesterday afternoon and decided to draw something. Turns out, I saw a photo of Nick Valensi {Guitarist of The Strokes} and start drawing him.

The problem is, I don't know how to properly draw hair... as you can see. I tried everything to make it look better but I just couldn't. I think I'm making some changes after I saw how weird it looked when I scanned it:

  • Sanguine.
  • Pastels.
  • HB Pencil.
  • Patience.
  • Ingres paper.

{Feather bottle}

Bottles, bottles, bottles!
I got anther mini bottle and I had to make something with it. The other day, I found this little feather and I had to keep it {and since I love feathers, well you know...} and I didn't know what to do with it so I told myself "Why don't I use the bottle and the feather?" I end up with this little bottle pendant featuring the feather and little piece of paper I rolled.


  • Glass Bottle.
  • Wire.
  • Cord.
  • Feather.
  • Paper.

{Oh The Strokes CD covers}

More nails!
SO I didn't know what to do with my nails the other day and I saw a photo of a cd cover. I used to paint my nails with CD covers {ok I just did that twice} and I wanted to try it again. I was planing on doing just one cover and paint the rest of my nails with at theme based on that cover but, for some reason, I end up painting all The Strokes CD covers.
  • Top Coat.
  • Acrylic paint.
  • Black Nail Polish.
