Spring Blooms 2018

Summer is approaching fast! The pictures are a little late, but who doesn’t love to see Spring flowers? I’m wrapping up all my spring pics from this year into this post, enjoy!

The first few blooms I came across this spring were the blue and purple flowers.

Violets, Blue Glory of the Snow, Blue Moon Dutch Crocus and Siberian Squill

Daffodils, Grape Hyacinth, Magnolia, and a Dandolion

Then yellow and red.

Dandolions, golden finch, robin, and I’ll look into the red flowers soon.

My favorite pictures were of these above. There’s just something about the blooms that resembled fairies dancing or posing 🙂 .

Lastly, I’d like to thank my little guy Odin again for getting me out to walk and take pictures. He likes to sniff and enjoy the flowers too! He really has been a great blessing to my boyfriend and I’s lives ❤. That’s it for this Spring! Soon there will be summer flowers 😉 .

Next week’s posts will be all about the Sleeping bear dunes national park and the campgrounds there. I’ll be going back to posting Thursday and Saturday next week. See you then! ~❤

Wednesday Walk

I went for a walk with Odin yesterday. As you can tell, he had a lot of fun 😉 .

I’ve missed Spring and was hoping for more color, but found a few interesting subjects that caught my eye. The first one of the tree was taken while laying on the ground. The second is of a nest that caught my eye. The rest of them had interesting light and shadows.

Of course towards the end I had to do a few of my nature hearts. For some reason it always completes my day 🙂 .

I’m planning on posting from now on every Saturday. I’ll be posting about what I’ve been working on this past week so I’ll see you then 😉 .

Playing With Leaves

This past week I’ve been creating and testing my new craft from last weeks post,”Anime Leaves.”

The top one was done on an actual ginko leaf and the few below where tested in the photo editing program, PicsArt.

I like the look of the drawings on actual leaves better but the lion one turned out pretty good :). The nice thing about the digital ones was that they were easier to make away from home. That and it gave me a better idea of what to draw later.

I’ve learned a lot of what I can and cannot do, what markers to use and ways to flatten the leaves(before & after drawing).

I even tried a way to preserve the leaves after being colored. Modpoge brings the colors out more and allows the leaves to bend without breaking. I received a few ideas of preserving them between glass in a frame too.

I’m not sure how long I’ll test this new idea, but I’m having fun doing something new for now ^_^. I have a feeling it’ll develope into something more soon. 😉

*Oh and before I go, I’ll be posting another post this Saturday. See ya then!

Anime Leaves

I was walking with Odin last week and saw a few old leaves that caught my eye. I thought “I wonder if I could draw my anime faces on these.” So I brought them home. It was rainy today and started to snow, so I decided to test my idea. I made the little one first. I soaked the green one in water then flattened it out and used an iron on it (with a cloth behind and above it). It was a lot easier to draw on than the first.

The red one was from a pressed leaf I had in my ” treasure box” 😉 . The red guy and girl are on the same leaf. The guy was on the bottom, lighter side, and the girl was on the brighter red. I had quite a bit of fun this morning drawing and coloring them. ^_^ I think I found a new place to draw my anime on 😉 . Now I just have to find a way to preserve them.

*I’m thinking about adding another day besides Thursdays so I will update you soon. See you next week, or sooner 😉 !
