Drawing a summer picture!

Hello, my bucket list friends! Back in 2010 I started drawing a picture to celebrate summer. I did miss 2011 but other than that I’ve been doing it ever since. Today was the day I drew this year’s picture. I used colored pencils and crayons for this year’s picture. I’m really happy with the way my picture looks. I was just kind of making things up as I went when I drew this picture. However, I’m very happy to have this drawing as a part of my art collection.

Cupcake art !

Hello, my bucket list friends! Yesterday, I used my paint sticks again to create another piece of art. I didn’t know what I wanted to make at first so once again I turned to pintrest for inspiration. I decided to make a cupcake after finding easy step by step directions. I had a fun time drawing a huge cupcake with dots on it’s wrapper. The cherry on top is super cute. I’m glad that was included with in the instructions because it made the picture just a little better. I wonder what I will make next.

Hello, happy frog!

Hello,my bucket list friends! Art is one of thoes things that puts me in a good mood! Tuesday night I decided to use the paint sticks that I got at Michaels on Saturday to draw a picture. I didn’t know what to draw at first so I went to to pintrest for some inspiration. After looking around on Pintrest for a while I decided to draw a frog. I found very easy directions on how to draw a frog. I followed the directions and I’m so happy with the way my picture turned out. It is so whimsical and happy looking! I’m so glad I got thoes paint sticks at Michaels. I’m excited to make more pictures with them.

Nighttime sticker art

Hello, my bucket list friends! On Tuesday I did a simple but fun art project. I had planned on doing a craft kit but time got away from me. I still wanted to do an art project before I went to sleep. I had a pack of foam door hangers in my closet.I decided to decorate one of them using some of the many stickers I have. The first sticker I used was an American Girl star logo. Then I began adding more stickers. Including trees,flowers and animals. I love doing sticker art projects. They are simple but fun and very relaxing. I’m happy with the way my door hanger looks!

Colorful and creative drawings!

Hello,my bucket list friends! In addition to blogging drawing is one of my favorite things to do. Recently I drew two more pictures in my sketch book. I’m pretty happy with both of them. One of them was based on the rain storm that we had over the weekend. I drew a fun umbrella with rain drops and rain clouds.The other picture was of a snail. I don’t know why exactly but I really love drawing snails. With this drawing I used many colors for the snail to give it a fun look. Since we are on the topic some of my other favorite things to draw are balloons, flowers, coffee mugs, ice cream cones, birds,and trees. I find drawing very relaxing and I hope to share more drawings with you soon.

Thanks for reading!

bird house painting fun!

Hello,my bucket list friends! I’m home from work today because I have a ganglion cyst on my foot that makes it painful to walk. I decided to use some of the extra time I had today to do one of the craft kits that I’ve been wanting to do. I bought this bird house craft kit  at Five Below. In addition to the supplies that were in the kit I used some paint and paint brushes that I already had. I decided to do this craft kit outside to avoid any extra clean up. As soon as I started painting I felt relaxed. I loved picking out the colors and deciding where I wanted to put the.I’m very pleased with my colorful  bird house. I wonder what craft kit I will make next?

Painting magnets and a tea set

Hello, my buck list friends! I buy so many craft kits and can’t keep up with all of them. However I recently completed two of them. One was a kit where you paint your own wooden magnets the other one was a tiny tea set that you could paint. I love doing craft kits where you can paint an object without having to build or make anything first. Of course there’s nothing wrong with building or making something it can be a lot of fun. I just like to dive right into the painting part. The wooden magnets were all sea animals. It was fun to paint the smiling sea creatures and I really like the way they turned out. I got this craft kit at Savers and I’m very happy that I did. The next craft kit I got at a local toy store. I remember getting a craft kit similar to this when I was younger but that one was a larger tea set. This one was so tiny and cute. I decided to paint smiley faces on the tea set along with some dots. I like mixing colors when. I paint and I thinks it makes things look really cool. I wonder what arts and craft kit I will do next ?
