The past three years have been pretty big ones in my personal life, and through all the ups and downs, art, dance, and music have given me a lot of happiness. It’s been great sharing that with you, and the support I have gotten through facebook & my blog have been amazing! I hope you stick around for more years to come.
Here’s a picture of what I feel is my best personal creative project in the past three years
Using 6″x8″ Canson Watercolor paper, Nu Pastels, and black acrylic paint, I created a simple Toronto Skyline.
The first time I finished it, I decided to spray it with protective spray, and it completely destroyed it! Ironic, but a lesson well learnt. I had to actually redo it, which ended up pretty quick the second time around. Here’s a picture of the ruined version.
Tomorrow I leave Toronto behind for a vacation to London and Paris! Keep checking srisarts.tumblr.com for photo updates :)
I used a floral stamp with black embossed ink, red acrylic paint, and some pretty brown/gold thread I found to create this card.
I used my embossing stamps, silver embossing powder, acrylic paint & little crystals I got from Etsy to make this 5×7 card. Ever since I got my Martha Stewart score board, I find that my cards look much more professional :) It’s hard to see the 3D effect of the stamps. I tried to take a picture under light so you can see the full effect. The geometric pattern reminds me of those wooden doors in India.
I don’t claim to be a master chef, but I do love sharing a good recipe when I find one! These chewy chocolaty cookies were a huge hit with my friends & family, and they have lasted for days! I followed this recipe, with the following modifications.
- I cut the sugar down by 1/4 cup. I could probably cut it down by a full half cup next time. They’re very sweet, which is not necessarily a bad thing!
- I used 1/2 semisweet chocolate chips & 1/2 white chocolate chips.
- I chilled my dough for about 30 minutes before rolling them into balls and sticking them in the oven. Without this step, I never would have been able to make 45 perfectly even cookies.
I created this card using acrylic paint, card stock, and some gold foil from the inside of an old envelope. I used a thick gold acrylic paint and some acrylic medium in order to get some depth into the border. It’s hard to tell in the picture, but the red background shines in the light thanks to hints of gold paint :)
