#TACminireview ▪Based on my own experience, I have had trouble with looking for the right coloured markers for painted surfaces. Most pens & markers dont draw well on acrylic paints and some ruining the tip instantly.💡Here's my take on #PilotPintor markers by @pilotpenmy :
-
• Tip of marker is easy to "season". Ink flows out well.
• The pastel colours has better ink control and best results
• The metallic colours are okay but not so fond of the ink control. It over flows out and it bleeds easily.
• Finally a white pen that draws well on dark backgrounds!

💛I had a very interesting journey with colours. I learned that there is more than just creating a perfect colour combination. I used to have terrible colour combos, until I realized that it was because I didnt have a connection with my colours. 💝Creating is one thing, connecting is another. With good connection comes the understanding of how each colour affects us and our emotions, or what sort of feelings you bring out with colours, and creating balance with warm & cool tones. Being able to understand the idea of colour combination is like being able to see the little things in life that makes our world unique or what makes us unique in our own way.
Happy colouring!🌈

💛Caught the bug and nursed myself with meds for a week, until I literally told myself "ok! Enough with feeling sick!" Time to heal with art. 🌈It's amazing how some art-time can instantly make a person feel better. Worked on these bohemian styled mini art pieces for some time, but I am glad it turned out ok. 🦄These pretty things are fun to craft and make cute gifts and home decor 🌸 Craft class on this is available for sign up!

📣Also, I have been thinking of activating @shop.theartsycraftsy again. Head over to support and adopt my crafts ok?!😘

#TACblogs 💡 "I make art. I make crafts. My life is whole. My brand is my whole life. It doesnt fit into a niche. It doesnt fit into a box. It cant be categorized, labelled and put on a shelf." - Lillian Connelly @itsadomelife
-
🔖During one of my reads, I came across a beautifully written article by one Lillian Connelly, titled 'Am I an artist making crafts or a crafter making art?'
-
📲I shared screenshots of the article on my Insta stories {▪see highlight: Inspo▪} and was touched that so many others felt the same about themselves. Like them, I was once caught in between the idea of boxing myself up and people questioning me just because I happened to be a craft blogger who curates the local craft scene, paints, crafts & teach.
-
Such confusion can only be formed by social norms of how an Instagram account should look or how an artist or a crafter should only focus on☝️1 style or craft. Truth is, there is no rule of thumb👍 or right & wrong that as creatives we should box ourselves up in one category. How can we box ourselves up in arts and craft when creativity is all about breaking creative boundaries, and expanding our knowledge to make art?
-
💡A good example: When I look back, I started off with 1 passion: arts and craft. And with the basic craft knowledge and self taught art skills that I have, I started off in my journey as an explorer in arts and craft.
-
So if you are feeling doubtful and feel you should limit yourself just because your Instagram account looks uncoordinated, ✋stop for a moment and tell yourself that the only approval you should seek is your own. Do what you do best and continue to make art.
-
Thank you Lillian for your article as it has opened up minds and served as a reminder to many of us in the community. 🤘Make art 🌈Stay colourful!

🌈Exploring brush and background samples with colours, using canvas remnants that was found lying around. I am a sucker for the colour combo of ultramarine blue, turquoise and white. 😂I also have this weird thing where I like to make art out of leftovers. 🙂Do you have some sort of strange or weird artsy craftsy antics too?

🎨I designed this class because I've always wanted to empower people to:
1. Paint intuitively,
2. Embrace their inner artist
3. And create a balanced creative lifestyle 
instead of being intimidated by the brush and falling for the myth that you must be a pro artist to paint. 💓The lesson plan in this class reflects my creative journey years ago and how I reconnected with my inner artist. It consist of creative development exercises to help individuals to breakfree from self-created boundaries. 👩‍🎨I once was looked down for not being able to paint, apparently I must have a college art education qualifucations to know how to paint. 💪I silenced that negativity and put a stop to it, and told myself I will turn all that negativity into something that will inspire people to create balance with art. And I finally did it!

To the beautiful souls who joined this class, I hope you enjoyed yourself and continue to make art everyday. 🍃💓🌈 .

Van Gogh wasn't kidding when he said we should paint even more to silence that voice in our heads that says we can't paint. It is our over-thinking habits that holds us back, something that we picked up as adults. So let's be like kids again! Be natural, spontaneous and carefree with painting and crafting! Believe that you can do it. Stay colorful🌈

#TACdiy 🎨 No more 'bored' of inspirations. Pun intended! 😆 This week I gave my boring old brown corkboard a new look with just craft paints. Doesnt take long to do this at all, at most 2 - 3 days tops if you are varnishing plus drying process. If you are doing this, use craft paints like @plaidcrafts or @marthastewart paints that comes with satin or gloss varnish. On a budget? Use regular acrylic paints.
👉 Swipe too see the before and after!
