Resolution and Goal Setting Jar

Filed under: Christmas,Paper Craft,Seasonal — sarah @ 10:37 pm

Happy New Year everyone :)

New Years Resolutions and Goal Setting Jar

New Years mean resolution making, this is what we have done this year – it is a resolutions and goal setting jar.

Needed:

Large jar A4 coloured paper (one colour for each person contributing to the jar) Scissors or paper gillotine Loom bands/small hair bands/small elastic bands pencil (preferably small) Small draw string bag

Divide the A4 sheets into 8 rectangles each, this can be done by either measuring or folding each piece in half three times. The write the resolutions or goals onto the small rectangles, you can include action plans or tick lists if you wish. Then roll up the small piece of paper and secure with loom band and place in jar.

If there is space left in the jar put spare rectangles in there with small pencils and bands contained in a small bag so that people can continue adding goals through out the year. Leave in prominent place so that you do not forget your goals, and take our for review on a regular bases. For those who don’t want others to read their goals stickers can be used as seals instead of bands and “do not read” can be added to the finished scrolls.

Within and Without Virtual Launch Party

Filed under: A Stranger Dream,Events,My Drawings/Paintings — sarah @ 8:18 am

This weekend is the virtual launch party of my poetry, music and art album Within and Without. It went live at 10 am this morning :)

There will be give aways and postings of links, explanations of the recordings, videos and more. I am running a Facebook Event, a Google Plus Collection as well as blogging across various platforms :)

I will be going until 11 pm Sunday evening!

Within and Without is an on going art, poetry and music project that I started several years ago. This is the first part and contains the visual poem A Stranger Dream which is also a colouring in book I have produced. Some of the colouring in sheets or art visuals are included in the download along with art work from a sister book not yet released that goes with the track Winter’s Heart.

The whole download costs £1 and comes free with any merch purchase you make. If you wish to just just purchase the merch you can go to my Etsy shop.

I hope you all enjoy the work.

Line Sketches

Filed under: Uncategorized — sarah @ 9:43 am

I’ve been trying to do more quick simple line sketches to catch the shapes and movements. These are just in what ever note book I happen to have at the time, being trained in field work I have a tendency to want to annotate all the pictures and have to keep reminding myself that it is not needed!

Cowfish South Africa

These are some of the ones I did in South Africa, I wish I’d done more but tended to be chasing small people and making sure they did not climb into lion dens (which the youngest did actually attempt :/ ).

Blue the penguin Cape Town

We visited alot of rescue centres and sanctuaries so not everything I saw and drew was native to South Africa – like these Hopper Penguins.

The Garden – Water Colour

Filed under: My Drawings/Paintings — sarah @ 8:33 am

The Garden

I painted this as a present for my inlaws – it is their garden and cat Wallace. I loved how the light shone through the palm tree in the morning whilst we were staying with them and how the plants frames the mountain.

Wallace the Cat

It’s Simons Town South Africa for those who want to know :)

Whimsical Moon

Whimsical Moon

This is a water colour painting on A3 paper – it was painted during a super moon event that my friend felt had significant astrological importance. She ran a group meditation and I painted.

Leonid Afremov

Filed under: Art and Drawings — sarah @ 10:27 am

I spend too much time on Twitter and I found a little while back that these vivid paintings kept appearing in my time line – they are full of colour and energy and seem to suggest people living life to the full even if there are no people in the actual painting. So I prodded around a bit and discovered the artist on twitter – Leonid Afremov.

I thought I’d share him with you guys – so here is his website.

The Neons – Secret Art Project

Filed under: Events,My Drawings/Paintings — sarah @ 10:07 am

So I have a Patreon account – the idea is that people can basically sponsor me to create art, poetry, science etc… at the moment I am posting the progress of a secret art project up on there. Though the art work will eventually go live for everyone to see you are looking at a year or so I think but if you are a patreon then you can see how and when the project progresses – this is only fair as it is money from this platform that has allowed me to buy the art supplies I need for said project.

There will be extras for the higher paying patreons as well :)

Also it is not the only thing – often my stories and poems appear on there before they go public as well.

One secret art project.

Art Prints

Filed under: A Stranger Dream,My Drawings/Paintings — sarah @ 3:38 pm

Art prints of A Stranger Dream have arrived – these are wonderful – I am really chuffed with the quality and I have found some black frames which work really well with the images.

Identity Clinging framed print

Currently there are only three designs: Dismissed, Identity Clinging and Love. As these sell I will have enough capital to get more made but it is going to be a slow roll out – sorry guys!

Art Prints of A Stranger Dream artwork

Also I am not currently selling things online other than the book itself which you can get through amazon. The reason for this is that the after affects of head bang make it still a bit too much for me but I am selling them at events.
