Creative ways to use your photos

I love to take photos! Specially to find small details from nature. But like most things this includes a problem. What to do with all those photos! Time of film cameras, photos were more rare and more often made as print copies. Well, then you didn't even saw the photo, before you took the film to shop and had it done. You had to pay from every photo, so it really made you to think, before taking any pictures. But now you don't have any limits. I keep saying that, secret of my best photos is that I just take enough of those, so at least one will be good. I have saved nature pictures almost 1000 at the moment, so it's clear that I can't print all of them. Or if I'd do it, it would be too much to put on sight.

I have photo albums collected from printed photos. I mostly like to do that with wedding photos or about some other specific situation. I add invitations and all that type things, that I want to save. I write notes and and stickers, tape, flowers... Old school crafting. I also have printed albums, ordered from online. It's made really easy to do, even for beginners, to do really good looking books and with reasonable price. The fact is, you don't see those photos that much often, then those that are on your computer. You look those when they are fresh and at random occasional situations.

I have photos on my fridge's door, on frames in bookshelf, bigger pictures in frames on wall. Any of those isn't that creative. Nowadays is many online stores, from where you can order printed copies and albums. They've went so much longer with their selection about what you can order. I have stickers made of mine and I like to use those with my work orders. I made a cutting board from chive flower photo to cook friend. I've had calendars, printed canvases... I can't even think what all! I like over all to give self made gifts and use my photos to those. No one have too much extra space, so a card or  maybe playing cards with printed photo, can be working idea. Options are endless.

Working with a giant project

I've been busy and it's easy to see from, how often I've been writing lately. Anyways in beginning I promised for myself, that keeping the blog isn't going to be something, that I let to stress myself. I'm using all my time and energy for the work, what I'm doing right now. I don't want to tell more about it now, but for this post's sake, I need to tell, that I'm working with Photoshop and using hundreds of hours for this.

The biggest challenge for me is, that I don't remember to take a breaks. Somehow drawing with computer, doesn't feel same way working, then sewing or painting. I easily forget to drink or eat. Suddenly I notice,  that I've been drawing four hours and haven't moved at all. In long run, this is really stupid and I'm trying to focus specifically to this. Currently I'm "watching" Netflix while working. More like I have it open and I'm listening and time to time looking what is happening. My idea f…

Giving second change for my markers and buying new ones

I've been really into Inktober. Even more then I waited to be. I waited to have more problems with keeping this daily schedule, but surprisingly, only one day was hard to get anything done. I've been focusing to drawing so much and haven't really felt like writing. I think it's partly because, I've just been drawing and not doing that much anything else.

I've used almost completely my original markers. I had my first Sharpies ever and they used to be enough for me. Just because I didn't used to draw with them. I basically used those just for writing. They are okay and good for practicing, but now I'm needing more and I'm waiting from mail, my new Winston&Newton's Promarkers. I read and watched Youtube videos about, what would be the best for me. Copics are known to be the best, but the price is just way too much. I trust to Winston&Newton as brand, based of their other products, like paints. Also some artists actually prefer them, over C…

Art and feelings - hospital art

If you are saying that art doesn't wake any kind of feelings in you, you need to stop at next time and actually give a second to look at it. Art can be powerful tool and mood effective. I'm talking now specially about art in hospitals and other public places. In this context, art can be anything from actual painting or photography, to color of walls or pattern of ceiling. I'm always focused the patterns of air conditioner's grids. It sounds so small detail, but every hospital room has it and after laying somewhere hours, you'll start to notice details on roof.

I've got my dear share of hospital time. Time in waiting rooms, doctors offices, examination rooms, wards... There is usually one common thing. Something on walls, that is meant to make place to look nicer, warmer, more comfortable... Sometimes even more home like. It can be anything from doctor's kid's or kid patients drawings to abstract professional photographer's ink test like photos. Eith…
