Quick Sew Curtain : Stars


Hi! I'm back from blogging {hahaha} I used to share here about handmade cards or layouts but now it's about S.E.W.I.N.G. And today I'm sharing a quick sew home project I made for our bedroom. You might be wondering (our) meaning our kids and us cuddle up in the same room but with their own beds.

Bought this from my local shop Telabizmnl in Instagram, the only shop selling loads of imported designer fabrics. This room has a total of 8 windows and I have 6 panels of curtain made with this print. Fabric has a 45" width, the length is 60", sew the top 2", next 3", 1" fold, sides and bottom sewn with 2"


These 2 panels 1 added some eyelet fabric and baby blue trims for that added touch. And because I get lazy then end result of the other panels is below {hahaha}

Happy sewing!

Snail Mail : The revival

Beautiful mails come from the heart.

Snail mail is definitely alive in 2016. I mailed a bunch of letters to new friends around the world and hoped that it will bring a smile to someone from afar.

I am not sticking into one particular style at the moment, but I should say that my envelope art is inspired mainly by by NAOMI BULGER and LINSEY BUGBEE.

For one penpal, I used the Bird of Paradise envelope I painted before. I used goache.






I also tried shabby chic style collage.


Vintage collage style too!
I have a collection of special rubber stamps and I'm glad I have these types.

And this is when the postal lady helped me take pictures of the letters ready to be mailed. 


Such beauties! I really hope these lovely mails will reach the recipients. I always use registered mails so I can track them down.

XOXO

Be Like The Flowers ~ Watercolor ~ Cake Painting Class

Hello! Today I want to share a quote about bringing out the best in one's self.

People tend to look around and compare themselves to others, and ask why they are not as pretty, as talented, as intelligent, as rich.... and everything else. Becasue of this, they cannot help but become jealous and bitter about that person, not knowing that they also have some beauty in them that they cannot see. So, why not be like the flowers in the garden and just bloom at their own time? One cannot be as beautiful as a rose, but there are those who like daisies more than roses!

I am sharing this flower study I made in my spare time. I am using Mijello Mission Gold watercolors. 
I find the real hair brushes more suitable than the synthetic brush for creating roses beacause it holds more water. More water means more fluid to play with the paint. 



I will be having a cake painting class sponsored by Sugar and Ice on September 17 at 9AM to 4PM. 
Of course I will be teaching how to use edible paint and create florals with watercolor effect. 


Looks fun huh? :-D


Till next time!!!

XOXO

Snail Mailing ~ Artistic envelopes

Hello to all the snail mailers out there! Today I am eager to share this envelope art I made a couple of weeks ago. This was actually posted in my Instagram first. Anyhow, I hope you'll like this floral and butterfly design. I used goache paint because it dries faster and requires little water (I want to avoid ruining the envelope).

If you are into calligraphy, then, you can also use your dip pens or nibs to apply Finetec Gold paint.
I reallllllly love this technique. It's very easy to do. (LOL)

Please follow my intagram account @venusmakes for updates and sneek peeks.



Just apply a teaspoonfull of water into the Finetec paint, then mix until the consistency becomes like yogurt, that's when you can apply it on the nib. Yes, brush it on the nib (under and over the part around the hole) so you can write with it.


Do you ahve a favorite envelope art technique? I'd like to know. I'm keeping this post short for now.
Till next time!!!
