ben 10 friend

My little dude has just gone to bed with his new best friend. I hope they have many imaginative adventures together :)  hes just put in an order for a "gwen" .

Pretty impressed with how he turned out :) i like his wild hair (stripe included) minimalistic facial features. Gwen will have more prominent hands and possibly eyelashes... all in all im happy with the dimensions and proportions and can see many future customised dolls :)

Inspired by those funko dolls. Pity i couldnt find a vinyl one like this ...

now i just gotta find a tute on seamless joins cos i messed them up pretty good.

beginnings of an art journal

I think it's time I took some online classes, maybe in watercolour. I love this medium but tend to want to paste on the paint.
Maybe I'll dig out the oil pastels and have a play with master 3 very soon. This was therapeutic ♥

pirate treasure box


This was the perfect find!!

I love how my boy has so many favourite treasures, how daily he randomly selects the focal few.
Ive been on the hunt for a portable treasure box but havent found what I was after.
Ok so yes it was a lovely $3 purchase before the conversion (and he did grow an attachment to it in its girly form) but it was always intended to be a traditional treasure box.
Now to find the black fimo and continue the up-do!! Neverending possibilities :)

pineapple amigurumi :)

Heres a little idea that popped into my head last night. Meet my sweet pineapple. He looks just like my original concept drawing. Wish id remembered to sew the leaves to the opposite end of his body, I think he would've been cuter if his eye placement was closer to the bottom... next time :)

 Here's my latest collage. I love when these little bursts of inspiration happen.
The original is still in a very plain state (no doodling) waiting for the magic to happen. I kinda like the quote added on my phone...

I'm really pleased at how this kitty cupcake turned out. The cutie lil ornament had me inspired from the get-go. Quite a few undoings and rethinking, scribbled some bits down along the way, will attempt another one very soon.
