Butterflies, ‘Blogging Schedules’ and an Invitation to Help My Bookshelf Explode

Before you start kicking and screaming and telling me I’ve been Bad Blogger# 1, let me explain, okay? I have, with expert guidance from my mum, come up with my personal blogging schedule. I’ve been that horrible person who didn’t read all those awesome posts that came up this week and went away on a supposedly eternal hiatus but NOPE THAT’S ALL MY SCHEDULE’S FAULT. Guess why? … Continue reading Butterflies, ‘Blogging Schedules’ and an Invitation to Help My Bookshelf Explode

DIY Geometric Watercolor Initial- Adobe Photoshop

hello

Today I’ve got a little tutorial for all the Photoshop guys out there. I recently discovered something really cool while playing around with PS, and I thought you might enjoy it!

I really love the Rasterize option. It is my everything. I usually use it just for fun, or to tinker with my text and make any other teensy weensy alterations. However, I made something really interesting a while ago, and I owe it all to the existence of Rasterize. Continue reading “DIY Geometric Watercolor Initial- Adobe Photoshop”

A Little Post About Me and My Eight Day Hiatus// Letter Writing Updates (I’m Getting There)

If you’ve been around for a while, you may have noticed that my last post was on the 15th of May. And today is the 24th. I didn’t mean to stay away for that long, but ideas seemed to slip out of my mind and I couldn’t resist the temptation to grab the Kindle. Sorry guys, no great expectations from me. I have been up-to-date on everyone’s … Continue reading A Little Post About Me and My Eight Day Hiatus// Letter Writing Updates (I’m Getting There)

Natural Captures Issue One: Orchids

The wait took long enough.

Finally, I have come by the tedious resizing and file conversion process and have found out that batch resizing exists. Without blabbing much, let me present to you the first issue of Natural Captures, featuring vibrant orchids that I was fortunate enough to be able to see and take pictures of.

[For those of you who haven’t read the introductory post, click here.]

And before you get on, I must also ask you to note that though this post may seem short, it consists of 46 pictures (that’s NOTHING of the total number I took, phrbt) that I have compiled. I don’t happen to know the names of them all, but I will mention if I do, okay? Continue reading “Natural Captures Issue One: Orchids”

I had seen gems being used in zentangle since forever, and I finally decided to try it out. It used to look so complicated to make, but once I started, I realized that I was mistaken.

See that picture up there? That was the first gemdala (termed by me) that I made and actually liked. Since then, I have obsessively drawn, coloured and used gems in my zentangle like a hyperactive lunatic. Which I am, of course. Sometimes.

As I did it, I couldn’t help but notice that my way of drawing gemstones was different from the tutorials online. Seemingly simpler, too. That’s why today, I’m going to show you how draw them and how you can use them in your zentangle. Continue reading “Using Gems in Your Zentangle// An Unprofessional Tangler’s Guide”
