glue's art


Shoma Uno ft. Yuzuru Hanyu, “What are you interested in these days?” || 2017 World Championships (x)

Sooo, @cupidoago asked me if I could explain how I made my sleep circle and I’d be happy to share!

I started with a green Styrofoam wreath base and glued on some pieces of paper with sleeping related sigils on them.
Then, I took the thick ribbon and cut 3 even lengths, checking that the length doesn’t make it hang too low to the bed. I wrapped the ends around the base and hot glued them into place. Then I brought all the ends together and hot glued those.
Then I used some fake vines and wrapped them around the base. Same with a vine with the white flowers on it. I stuffed the ends into the Styrofoam and hot glued them in place. Then I kinda moved them around and made them look neater.
Then, I took 6 fake hanging wisteria blossoms and jammed them into the Styrofoam and hot glued them in.
Now, the witchy part, I have 4 sachet spells (good sleep, no nightmares, strong relationship, no anxiety dreams), viles of herbs (black salt, sea salt, fire salt, 3 with lavender, thyme, catnip, jasmine, chamomile), and I have a stick of Selenite and a clear quartz point tied up there too! I just attached all of that with lengths of ribbon tied to the vines or around the base.
If any of that didn’t make sense, please let me know! I hope it was helpful and if you decide to make one please tag me if you post pictures!!


Hullo! ♥ I hope you are well and enjoying today.

I am still here, despite disappearing so much; it would seem I relate to this character, haha! It’s No-Face from Spirited Away. ♥ He is one of my all time favourites and has been a great encouragement to me lately; a simple joy to draw – just what I needed to get back on track!

I kept thinking about using yellow flowers for this, but I liked the idea of eliminating any allusions to gold, with an emphasis on his personal growth through blue and pink: his former loneliness overtaken by a much greater discovery of purpose and friendship.

Bristol paper, micron pens, copic markers, washi tape, floral embellishments, and tacky glue.
