Autumn in Korea Ft. Korean Tilda

Good Day all!
It's week 01 at September and today we have a sunny day on Sunday :)
I am so happy to have something to share here, and this time I am featuring Korean Tilda from Magnolia along with my watercolor painting;



I made a simple design with this image and I try to provide an inspiration with autumn feeling, as we will meet autumn very soon and saying goodbye to summer!

Honestly, I never been to Korea and I live on the country that only have two seasons so we don't have neither summer or autumn, so for the scene that I painted that wasn't the real scene that I ever saw! I was searching around the internet and I found some photo stock about Korean village and I tried to do my doodling to capture the autumn scene, so I apologize if I can't provided the truly beauty of Korea.


I saw at movie, television and many pictures around Instagram how beautiful the scene of Korea! I wish I can go there someday especially on autumn or winter .. hopefully!

Here is a bit close up about my doodling and painting;


I am using my fave medium; watercolor! and I use some various brand, mainly Winsor and Newton but Daniel Smith also won my heart with their beautiful color. I have bought a new color : Amiata natural sienna from Daniel Smith and gosh it was beautiful warm soft yellow that I really want to have.
I also use a color from Kuretake Gansai Tambi, deep brown color and I always count on this color for Asian taste on my painting. Thanks to white guache! this paint can help to give some highlight here and there
For finishing touch, I randomly color a watercolor paper scrap with autumn color and cut it out with leaves dies from Magnolia.


Supplies :
Magnolia stamp - Korean Tilda
Leaves dies - Magnolia DooHickey Box
Canson Illustration paper
Watercolor : W&N - DS - Gansai Tambi

Thank you so much for stopping by and see you next time!

You are my favorite | Learn to doodling and painting a hill scene

Happy Friday all !!!
I am so glad to say hello again to you my lovely readers :)
and today I have a card to share with you featuring a cutest image from Magnolia latest release; Sweet pants Tilda 


Look.. how cute she was!!
She is my favorite on this collection and how I adore her pose, her hair style .. seriously she is way too cute!!!


I am coloring her with watercolor, and if you spot for her blouse .. it just because I am so inspired by a pattern painted on my pencil case, you can see my Instagram post HERE.
and after I did her blouse I just can't resist to grab my pencil and doodling a hill scene behind her.
I love to use 0.2 pencil when I learn to draw. 
and then I am painting everything with watercolor.


Here is the look from another angle, 
I use tag dies from Magnolia Vintage box released some while ago and the bird is coming from the newest Magnolia Vintage Box 5 as well as the vintage script stamp that I used on the tag.
I learn to improve my doodling and painting,  I wish I can do better in the future, so I keep learn and learn .. 


So that's my card for today, I hope you like it and I will see you again on the next post.
Thank you for stopping by.
Have a lovely day!
Bye bye !!!

Country Girl at Summer Hill | Magnolia stamp new release

Hi folks!

It's me with a card using the new release images from Magnolia stamp company Sweden - Country Girl, the collection has a bunch lovely images and for my card today I am using Sitting Tilda with Clogs , Happy Swing and Swing Branch.



I stamped all three images with masking stamping technique on Canson Illustration paper and colored with watercolor. I also give my main panel the scenery about the summer hill.



Pardon if there is something missing on my scenery, but as this is a handmade card and not such a realistic picture, I think it is ok to have fun with the free imagination.

I have a video the way I am painting the scenery if you want to take a look ;)



Supplies : 
Magnolia stamp images - Country Girl | Magnolia DooHickey Dies | Winsor & Newton Cotman series watercolor

Thank's so much for stopping by!

Miss you more than just a little | Free hand watercolor painting hill and river scenery

Hello !!

It's me here and I am so glad to say hello to all my lovely readers :)


Today I am sharing a card that I made it simple yet focusing to the image it self. I am using Magnolia stamp : Flower Girl Tilda from the latest collection Believe in Unicorns.
When I saw this Tilda at the very first time, I really want to use this image to represent me, my self .. when I am missing someone and I sit on the scene to wait ..
and here are the pictures about my card :


I just add one decoration, but it means a lot!
a note.. secret note for someone very special ;)
I cut the edge using Magnolia DooHickey.



Closer .. I paint the scenery using watercolors, here I use Winsor and Newton Cotman for all the main paintings whereas the dark brown I always count on Gansai Tambi watercolor.


and this is the words from the heart ..
I Miss you more than just a little 

Thank you so much for stopping by, I hope you can get something from here and it would be my pleasure to bring a little inspiration for you.
I will see you again next time!

PPP Blog Hop | Beautiful May on 2017

Hello there!

I have a special post for you today, I have a sweet friend that found around this cyber space just because I was looking for some sequins! and when I got my very first PPP sequins I was surprised! She is carrying the most beautiful sequins that I ever know :) 
and later I know that Paulina is a person with a sweet heart!
I am sharing projects using the latest release from Pretty Pink Posh and she has a great blog hop happening!

Honestly I am nervous when she asked me for a guest spot .. many crafter around her are fabulous & great artist , so I am really .. really very nervous .. but I try to make something anyway ..


I am busy like a bee .. yes, I am!
so, I need a little reminder for my self about the date of this event .. lol!!
Those Bee paper clips are made from the stamps set that Paulina sent to me, 
and here we go the blog hop!


Today is the first day of the blog hop and you should have arrived from Melody Rupple 's Blog and she is featuring her amazing projects, if you have lost your way, there is a list at the bottom of this post..
PRIZES : Be sure to hop along the way and leave comments as there are 4 $25 gift certificates up for grabs (two winners each day). Winners will be picked randomly along the blog hop. Comments must be left by 11:59 PM PST on 5/17/2017. Winners will be announced on the PPP blog.

and welcome to my stop ...


Currently I just love  to do some doodling, water coloring, color chart journey .. on my traveler's note book  .. and about May .. this month brings various feeling for me! I just imagine about the flower blooms, all the charming of this season and yeah .. the Build a Bloom stamp set is perfect! I made a pattern paper using that stamp, cut the edges using the Scallop Borders 2 dies, and manual stitched on the top of that panel.
Wording is coming from Thoughtful Greetings stamps set.
I also stamped some flowers and excuse me for my amateur lettering .. as a beginner I still learn .. then I blow out some green paint using a straw, to get a little artsy look, and the final touch I adhere some newest sequins ; 6 mm Champagne - 4 mm Champagne - Mini Sparkling clear flower.
 I love to say ...  Hello May!!!

here is another story ..


I almost always have a story behind my creation/projects .. :)
little story about this .... I miss my son who is studying abroad, I am thinking of him everyday .. when he is home we are very pleased .. and yeah .. everything is better when he is around!
I have two sons and both having my heart but being nestle together is the most wonderful moment :)
So, the Bee Friends stamps set & dies  is seriously won my heart! as perfect as the Build a Bloom
stamp & dies, their coordinating dies made everything more easy too.
I love making my scene using both of them. 

Here are more photos in case you want to look more closer ..



I am using Kuretake Gansai tambi for the scenery & Zig Clean color real brush for the bees and flowers
Bees : Natural Gray - Yellow - Light Brown - Blue Gray - Haze Blue - Light Pink
Flowers & Leave : Olive Green - Light Pink - Pale Rose - Light Brown - Yellow

and pardon that I can't resist to make another project using the Build a Bloom  .. I promise this is the last .. hee hee ...


I stamps the flowers and leaves using Versafine toffee and color with watercolor , splatter teal color here and there as well as some gold from Kuretake starry gansai paint.
I made an envelope for 4 bar card size, cut again the opener part using the Scallop border dies, and I wrap my envelope using the pattern paper I have made.
All words coming from Thoughtful Greetings.

Okay ... that's all from me .. 
It is now time to head on over to Suzy Plantamura's blog to enjoy the amazing creation she has create..
remember if you have lost your way,
 these are the amazing talents in the hop… be sure to go visit each one! 


Thank you for reading and Have a fun Blog Hop!
