My version of a Mexican Marigold

I’ve been looking at doors, homes, water, art, people, food… beauty from around the world. I love learning about culture. Oh and the dragon bridge in Vietnam. In my next adventure I will be drawing, sketching and writing for a new book Around The World. I may still do a few flowers. SOmething else always comes up.

Here’s to learning how to be a better me by learning about others.

From ordinary things to beautiful

I came across a Ginko Tree. What a peaceful color. For these I mixed up acrylic and tempera paint. Warm inviting tones. The tones that help you connect. Used a flat brush to apply flat left and right shapes. Done. I like taking ordinary things and creating beautiful flowers. Still thinking of a name. I’m going to go checkout some creative blogs for ideas. CreativelyHue? Sounds good. There’s a creating for a better you vibe. Ordinary things? Maybe. I feel I should update my shop. I said I wasn’t but I should.

Surprising ways to use a candle lid

There I was with some leftover paint. I’ve been reading about block printing and how to make stamps.

Sure I painted usual flowers but I wanted to stamp. With the lid in my had I had an idea. Paint the floral design and stamp. The stamp visibility depends on the how much paint you apply. Adding water makes the paint thinner and works beautifully too.

Oh and the fun doesn’t stop here. I could get some plain cream or light brown fabric and stamp along a a table runner. I could stamp on a wall? for the garden? I’d need different paint of course.

Some other ways I’ve used the lid…

The lid by the way, is a lid from a Bath and Body Works Candle. I wonder what else in my house could make a stamp? Aren’t you curious? Go create. If you discover something then tag me on instagram @hellomireya

See you tomorrow.

A down to earth soul

I like the color so much that I had to paint circles with the leftover paint. Flowers? Yes but how? A few days later I reviewed the flowers I painted. My desktop wallpaper was an influence too. What I love most about art is there’s room for everyone. Everyone has a way, it could be collage, oil paint, fruit or fabric. When asked why, it’s always I just do. It’s an idea that takes over. Nature is art.

There’s also something in the neutral colors. I long for walks in the park with Roxy. That’s the kind of peace I want more of.

Create Happy

I wasn’t sure what to create. I was missing watercolor and tie dye seemed like a good idea!

Happinesss is a verb. You create it.

I wanted a silly flower to make me smile.
