Back to creating

I haven't been really sitting down and just letting my creativity flow lately, so I was glad to find some quiet moments to just create!

This miniature bird cage was bought from one of my travels last year, and I have always wanted to do something with it. Since christmas is just a few months away, I wanted to try create something with a christmas theme in mind with it.

I enjoyed just sitting down and painting over the bird cage. It was great fun and therapeutic as well. I can't wait to see the whole scene coming to life.

My Second Rainboots Flower Arrangement

Remember my first rainboots flower arrangement here. It was sold a little while ago to France, and I finally had some time to make a second piece. This time round, I changed the flower arrangement a little by introducing another colour. But the overall colour theme is still soft and dreamy....

I hope you love this one as well.

I'll have to prepare for my Sunday workshop! Have a great weekend all!

Faux Macarons- Vanilla

I've been working quietly on these faux vanilla macarons. 20 of them actually. It was the first time I was commissioned by a local company for these. I always ask for 3 weeks time line for a project like this. I can never do it fast enough. Furthermore, it takes time for the shells to dry, and I texture all of them individually. I'm careful about not injuring my wrists, so that's why I would never try to complete them in a hurry.

I'm happy the project is completed and I can now proceed to other work that has been put aside for a little while. I hope to complete that new PDF tutorial which I have been working on forever. I am in the final photography stages for that. Then I will be concentrating on editing and writing. 

Wishing you all a happy weekend!

White Rose Hair Bobby Pin and Freely Clay

It's been a while since my last post. I am still around, but just been kept busy with work and some orders :)

I'm happy to be asked by my customer to create a special hair pin bobby for her, that goes along with the dark yellow gerbera daisy profiteroles ring here.

After some discussion, we decided to do a white rose, and 2 gerbera daisies. I also added some pearls to it.

Oh, and this time round, I took the chance to use a new resin clay to make the flowers. It's called Freely Clay. You can purchase it at my etsy shop here.

I'm really liking the texture. It's softer than Grace, so I can really flex and sculpt the petals. You can also use it to make fruits. It is slightly translucent. When dried, it is slightly flexible as well. Beautiful texture.
