Tonight at my studio...

Hello Lovelies, 
just wanted to show you what I`m working on right now
in my not so ready yet studio;)

My inspiration was a photo
I took of my friend last year.

I named this painting Ophelia, 
like Shakespeare`s Ophelia...

and of course my little one is in shot too;)

And with some color, 

I will add some flowers, some roses and daisies...

A way to go but I think it will look gorgeous...
Have a nice weekend my Lovelies;)

New Blogs - well new to me...;)

Hello Lovelies, 
I don`t know about you, but I became a
wedding LOVER this year.
Maybe it is because many of my friends got married this year.
It have been 4 weddings and two more to come;)
It were some german and russian weddings, 
all of them really different and pretty
but I can`t help myself,
 I always been attracted to the american tradition
of bridesmaids and stuff.

Never been to one of these..:)
Hello my friends out there, 
anyone want to invite me to an american style wedding?;)

So I searched the web
and here you have the BEST wedding blogs out there;)
(in my opinion)
As always, you maybe already know them, but they are brand new to me.

Just click the pic to get there.

Aaaand if that`s not enough inspiration, than go over to

Happy reading...;)

DIY paddle from paper rolls!

Hello Lovelies, 
I have this space above my
windows in the living room.
I think I need some decoration for that space.
Oh I have these old, stained planks.
Which are really nice, but something is missing though. 

So I was thinking...
And than it hits me;)
Why not make a paddle for that space, I have my octopus painting, 
and the jelly fish painting in there, some driftwood tables.
So why not a paddle?

No I didn`t carve it from wood.
I made it from this;)

Yes, just simple paper rolls! (and some cardboard)
You know the ones wrapped in toilet or kitchen towel paper.
So you have to remove the whole paper first, to get to them.
Do this on its purpose or let your kids or pets help you;)
(just kidding;))

Okay, what have I used:
1. Paper rolls (small and big ones)
2. Scissors and duckt tape
3. some glue
4. some electrical tape in black
5. a pretty wallpaper and some nails

And here is how I did it.
At first, lay down your rolls and cardboard to shape the paddle.

Than add the duct tape to connect the parts.

I put some kitchen paper towel between the two cardboard 
parts to make the paddle more dimensional.

Than you have to take out your wallpaper and just glue it to the cardboard paddle.
You can paint it as well.
I wanted it to be easy and fast, so I picked the wallpaper!;)

I only used the last stripe, the darker one.

Than let it dry.

After it was completely dried I used some
black electrical tape and wrapped the handle at the end and
right in front of the paddle.

And that`s how it looks on my wall;)

So what you think?
You like my DIY project?
Any suggestions?

How`s your weekend looks like?

Hello Lovelies,
It is really hot here, about 40°C.
The summer fully arrived now.
All you can do is sit outside and don`t move;)
Besides you want to grab something from the 
delicious BBQ.

Or just stay inside, like I did most of the time.
It is so great to be in my studio, where always
are about 18°C!


So what have I done...
I made some ombre clothespins, 
(just painted ordinary clothespins with some markers...)

for my little postcard gallery in my studio.
And the postman brought me these, which I will 
put on my Etsy shop soon.

Started a new painting,

 and almost finished up another.

Than rearranged some stuff in my studio, I`m not done moving yet.
Need some shelves and my chairs are not done yet either.
But I started to feel like I`m home;)

So what have you done the past few days?;)
