What’s been going on with Cally’s Creations?

Hi all!

I haven’t posted as regularly as I should, but I do find it hard juggling my blog along with Facebook, twitter, tumblr and Etsy. I hope that this will be changing now that I am attending Wolverhampton Uni to do Art and Design. My life is full of Art right now, so there’s rarely a time when I am not creating something new.

In my foundation year we have been asked to create an art journal through out the year. I have decided to dedicate myself to this, and to neverΒ rip a page out. Ever! This has been difficult for me in the past as although my artwork does get a lot of positive comments, like most artists I always feel like I can do better/ or that it isn’t good enough. I am not doing this any more. The one thing I have learnt while being at Uni is that you have to keep your progress. Even if you’re not a fan of what you have done, it’ll become useful to you one way or another in the future.

I have only been at Uni for a couple of weeks but already I have learnt a lot. I can’t wait to adapt the skills I am learning into Cally’s Creations. There’s a lot of places where my business needs to be polished up, and I am looking forward to making those changes and giving it everything I can.

I will be posting regular updates on my art journalling and progression as an artist, so stay tuned!

New sketches
August 26, 2013, 2:35 pm
Filed under: Art Progress, Doodles and Illustrations

Hey everyone!

Lately I have been doing some doodling/ sketching to try and note down new ideas for paintings and do give myself some more practice.

The reason I have been doing this is because I am going to be starting an Art and Design course in September. I am so excited to learn and develop my skills and share it with all of you! I have been quite ill the last 8 months with severe leg and back pain – and my artwork has really helped me through out this stressful time.

I hope you have enjoyed looking an these sketches – there will be plenty more updates coming soon! I will be trying all sorts of new creative skills once I start my course, which I can’t wait to do and share with you.

 



Up cycled 3D paper flower tins!

Here I have used tin cans, pasted paper around them, painted them with some cute colours and added a 3D paper flower and leaves around for decoration.
Next time I am going to line the insides, too. Can’t wait to make more.
