Under the sea

Happy Monday!

Have you ever thought of going on an adventure on Nautilus (Captain Nemo's submarine)? When I was reading '20 000 Leagues Under the Sea' I wanted to see all amazing sea creatures and explore the seas and oceans. 
I drew this picture using silky crayons, they blend really nicely and you can mix the colours easily.

Happy crafting!

Giant octopus from '20 000 Leagues of Under the Sea'

Happy Sunday!

I love books and Captain Nemo was my favourite book character when I was a kid. I loved all his adventures and one of the best ones was meeting giant sea creatures, so I used silky crayons and drew this giant octopus.

20 000 leagues under the sea drawings

Happy Saturday!

I hope you have an amazing weekend :)

Today, I woke up and thought about one of my favourite books from childhood '20 000 Leagues Under the Sea' by Jules Verne. I'm going to read it again (to be honest I've already read it a couple of times) and explore seas with Captain Nemo. 
I took up a challenge and used silky crayons (for the first time) to create these drawings. The second drawing is the first exploration of the bottom of the sea :)

What's your favourite book from childhood?

I love trying new things, today I had a go at flower tuxedo card and I have to admit that I am very pleased with the result. I used design papers and elements from the cover gift from Papercraft Essentials issue 176. The best part is that the card folds flat so it can be sent in a normal envelop.

Tower Bridge at Sunrise

Happy Saturday!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend :)

Here is my third dotted painting in the series 'Tower Bridge at Sunrise'. This landmark in London has a special place in my heart for a few reasons. One of them, there is very nice view from the bridge and you can capture beautiful sunsets. The most important one, it is the place where I got a beautiful flower from my husband when we went there together for the first time :)

What's your favourite landmark that brings many positive memories?

I'm still thinking about summer :)

Nothing soothes the soul like a walk on the beach

Happy Wednesday!

I hope you have a fantastic week :)
I'm looking forward to summer and still have to wait a few weeks so decided to work on some seaside cards. 
I made this card using 'By the seaside' stamp set from Creative Stamping magazine issue 72. For the background panel, I heat embossed the shells and starfish and then used ink blending to achieve sort of a sand texture. For the focal panel I stamped the images using StazOn ink and Spectrum Noir glitter inks to add the colours.

Do you like this a little bit vintage look?
