Summer may be slowly slipping away from us as August speeds by and September approaches, but it won't stop me from holding onto the warm weather and enjoying it for as long as I can. The weather has been good up here on the coast this year, and I intend on soaking up all of … Continue reading A Tropical Bookmark
For this week's creative post I wanted to do something a little different, and with it having been my birthday recently, I was given a few, cute things and the majority of them seemed to have a crafting feel to them, which I loved. Therefore I've got a lot of creative bits and pieces to … Continue reading A Wooden Butterfly
I apologise for my absence over the past fortnight, things have been busy in my corner of the world, and while this week promises to be no different, I wanted to get back into the routine of posting before the whole of July passes me by! So I though what better way to jump back … Continue reading A Little Paper Cactus

As you know, by now, I love wildlife, especially birds, and whenever I'm looking for inspiration my mind general goes straight to the natural world. I've already done a fair few paintings of toucans … Continue reading Little Emerald Toucanet
Using natural objects as bases for a canvas is one of my favourite things, so a couple of years ago when I came across painting on pebbles and rocks, I was hooked. I've tried my hand at a sharpie mandala before, and have even written the word calm on one of my pebbles to use … Continue reading The Painted Ladybird
At the moment I need fun and colour in my life, and what better way to achieve that than with some paper roses! Of course, this was inspired by the brilliant Red Ted Art, who has a tutorial on how to make these yourself here if you'd like some for decoration for your room. I … Continue reading Paper Roses!
Toucans are just one of my favourite species of birds, and as I shared on my 2016; The Happy Moments post back in early January, I tried my hand at a toco toucan in acrylic on a canvas last year, which turned out really well, and you all seemed to like it. However, there are … Continue reading Tropical Toucans
