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 never 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!

Etsy Treasury; Things with Wings

I have made this treasury of beautiful things with wings as I was feeling light and free today. Have spent most of the morning and afternoon sleeping and reading (must get on with some painting soon!)

You can view this treasury by clicking on the picture of it!



In Bloom…. original canvas painting

My newest piece of art, In bloom, inspired by the approaching Spring. There’s nothing better than painting warm Spring/Summer scenes in the middle of Winter. I have textured the 12×12 inch canvas with ripped paper, card, butterfly and flower stencils for a rough effect. I have also textured the flowers with paper and string, to spring them out of the canvas slightly.

All I need to do is varnish this piece, and it will be available for sale in my Etsy shop.
