Thinking of you!

Hello everyone!

I don’t know if you have experienced this feeling but sometimes I sit down and I have no idea what to craft or draw or whatever…and then I have this wonderful idea but I don’t know how to create it because I haven’t been to an art school and I don’t have all the technical knowledge…but I decide to try anyway coz it’s like a little voice inside my head that wants to be heard.

Oh well, this is what happened in this case. I know this drawing is not perfect but it’s as good as I could make it and I’m happy because it encloses thoughts and feelings that I want to remember and it’s dedicated to my dad who would have had his birthday yesterday if he had been with us.(I love you dad!)

This is my little project.Hope you like it and get inspired!

With love

Hello everyone!

Undoubtedly this hasn’t been a good week given the fact that the news was packed with sad events about terrorist attacks and hostile takeovers and all the like where loads of people lost their lives. However that can have a positive effect as well if it makes us realise how short life can be and how important it is to treat our loved ones – and not only- right!Inspired by that I created the following journal page. Hope you like it!

(I kept it simple and left some free space on purpose, so I can actually fill in some personal writing later 🙂 )

With love

WITH SYMPATHY

Hello everyone! Hope you have a good day!

I know people normally create happy cards and joyful projects to enter competitions etc…but sometimes we get inspired by personal reasons. I got inspired by my dad who left this world a few months ago but will never leave my heart. This card is not about him though, it is for all those who have lost a loved one. My sympathy…stay strong and don’t forget those we love always live in our heart!

This is my little easel card!
