Sharing my secret

I've always kept it for myself, how I do my works. Usually no one even asks about it. With those who are asking, I try to tell how I work, but it's not easy to change the process to words. Like I've seen here! It's easier now, when I have time to think how to explain and use pictures with the text. Why I'm now telling to everyone, who just wants to read about this?

One of the reasons I thought starting the blog so long time, was the fact that I didn't want to tell everything to other crafters. I didn't want competition and lose work options, but with world wide readers, it's really isn't a problem. One other things was, that I loved to be able to do something that basically no one else can do. Still, I know there isn't that many who have skills and patience for this. I'm mostly speaking about my jewellery dresses now. How I do those is still something about what, I haven't really wrote. Will see in the future! And anyways from reader count I can see that, you are more interested to read, when I ramble about crafting, then actually writing tutorials.

Readers are the last reason why I'm writing. It's still something that I need to keep in my mind. First, I need to remember what I can and want to share. This is basically my portfolio for work options in future, notes for myself, saving memories and to learn more English. Secondary thing is that I want to share what I know and have learn. I believe that everyone doesn't have to learn everything from mistakes.

I believe that I'm going to feel on and off about this, but honestly I don't know can I even explain how to make those dresses without filming it. I have view things, that I usually always do, but mostly I start to work, see how it goes and then consider what to do next. There isn't really one way to do it.  @FromMadeByMeri

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…
