My blog is mainly about books because it’s one of my hobbies that I do regularly. But I also love art. I have two sisters and all 3 of us are creative in different ways. My baby sister (I say baby, she’s 20) has a wonderful imagination and is wonderful at drawing. My middle sister is an actual artist, she does commissions and is just incredible, here are a few of her pieces.
I, on the other hand, love making things. I have a scrap book that I’ve added to since I was about 10. My home has collages around that I’ve made. Most recently I’ve decided to make all the table decorations for my wedding. I know I’ve mentioned my wedding a few times, I promised I won’t go on about it too much, but I wanted to share with you what I’ve made so far.
So I started off by making flowers out of books. I chose Harry Potter and The Lord of the Rings. Chosen because their both of our favourite books. They go really nicely together because the HP is band new so it has white pages, whilst LotR is a very old copy which is yellowing.
I then put them into jars. I trialled a few ways of doing this, below is one of my early attempts. Clearly, it needed more.
I ordered some fake pink roses and gypsophila. I tied a wooden heart around the top, which has both of our initials on, with some brownish string.
Finally, I put pink ribbon around the jar to finish it off. I’ve also made little tea lights in jars. I’ve simply glued the candle in and tied some brown string around the tops of them.
On the tables we will also have photos in little wooden stands, which I haven’t made. Along with disposable cameras and bubbles.
Do you enjoy doing art? What have you created?
