i actually made it on a canvas

How to repair an underworks binder

(I’d appreciate if as many people as possible could reblog this. This is a really common problem with these binders, but I’ve never seen any posts about fixing them on here before) 

If you’ve ever had an underworks binder you’ve probably encountered the way the material starts to separate once they get stretched out. And if you haven’t yet you probably will at some point, because this is usually what does for them in the end and makes them a bit useless. Mine wasn’t actually that bad when I did this, I’ve seen them get a lot worse.

The material loses it’s elasticity so it doesn’t bind very well. 

To fix this I replaced the back panel with white four-way-stretch lycra, inspired by gc2b binders, which are made entirely of it (apart from the canvas front panel), or something similar 

I’m really happy with how this turned out. It binds better than it ever did before for me (because I got it second hand). The only thing I would say is that it’s a little less comfortable than it was before, both because it’s tighter, and also because the seams dig in a little because I didn’t sew them flat like they were before. And it took me ages to do, but that’s because I don’t have a machine so I did it all by hand. It was worth it though, because the fabric only cost £5 which is a lot less than a new binder :)

I’ll put the details of how I did this under a cut

A massively massive poster made of mass dedicated to all the awesome games I’ve gotten to experience thanks to Steam <3 There was a while that I never even thought of trying the platform out, but now that I have I’ve found so many series that I adore as a result :,D So this is a big thank you to all the people that made these games, and also in part to steam for exposing me to them x,D

This actual poster is EXTREMELY massive, so if you want to see the full sized version just click here

I’ve also got some speedpaint videos to go along with how I made this thing below the cut!

(though I regret making them only for the fact that my computer nearly crashed trying to record a canvas this size ;v; )

Dark Souls 2 has been eating up alot of my time, in between creating new characters and actually finishing the playthrough of the first one I made. Still a long way before I git gud at the PvP aspect though

On another note, I might not keep the Funko Goliaths because these giant fucks are just too pointy for my canvas. One tip-over and the paint gets rubbed all over, plus I’m afraid it’ll leave dents - I can take care of the paint rub, but I’ve only got one backdrop. Thankfully these guys were only 20 each

Pavo Stash Bags

Please, let me be the first person to tell you that this bag did not interest me at all.  Let me also be the first person to tell you that I was unequivocally wrong.  I actually brought this bag back from the pavotextiles store after seeing it in person and falling in love, and used it as my carry on and it was perfect.

This bag is made of sturdy canvas and has a lot of features.  It is well worth your hard earned dollars.  This isn’t your standard canvas tote, folks.  Firstly, it is made in New England.  It is made right here in the U.S., with U.S. materials, creating income and jobs in the U.S.  That is something we need and we should be supporting. 

Secondly, it holds a lot.  It is very generous in size as I was able to stuff 8 long, trifolded, Guild wraps, and there was still room on the sides to add more. 

It has an edged pocket on the inside for your phone or business cards, or whatever small items you need to keep separate and easily accessible.

It also, and I did not know this and was pleasantly surprised to find, a zippered pocket on one end of the bag.  This is excellent for quick access items that you don’t want to dig through the bag for. 

It has two handles on each side for for carrying the bag in different ways.  Maybe you like to sling it over your shoulder.  Maybe you prefer to have it hang down like a satchel.  This bag accommodates both.

But wait!  There’s more!  It also zippers shut at the top keeping all of your pretties safe from the elements.

Babies also really like trying to get inside of it.

And when they can’t (because of that handy zipper), they look really cute using it to try and stand up, which we whole-heartedly discourage over here.


It’s actually a painting! It’s done on a thin but sturdy wooden canvas, and is about A4 size, perhaps a little shorter. I love it to death! I was hoping to re-blog her paintings but her tumblr is being weird.

The Artist that made that Sri Yantra is named Lisa Winter, and she has a Facebook and tumblr. (But she isn’t active on tumblr, she uses it as a portfolio.)

I’ve seen this one

in person and in certain lights it changes colours, with some of the symbols becoming brighter and others fading, it’s amazing!

She has an Etsy page and is also open to do commissions!

(I may or may not know her in real life so I may or may not be shamelessly plugging her work. <3)

This is one of her most recent works and I just wish I had more money to throw at it I swear.

About the Artist:

April Armistead

I was born an artist. I remember painting onto large sheets of paper on the floor – pictures of cats and rainbows. In the 3rd grade people started asking me to draw unicorn pictures for them. By high school I was ignoring all my study subjects except for Art. I’m lucky I even graduated. My little world is made of bright colors, flowery portraits, rainbows, flowers, sparkles, and unrelenting optimism. I try to instill a playful freedom in my work, so I often paint with my hands instead of brushes. You’ll find me dancing, playing, seeking adventure, and taking chances. I am surrounded by music always.

About the Work: 

This 24"x24" acrylic on canvas painting actually started as a rework of an old piece that was on 4 canvases. It’s a late night piece that I’d say is a self portrait of sorts when I sit back and think about it. I don’t want to sway people’s natural perception of the artwork too much, so I’ll just leave it at that.

I absolutely love the Doubt video you made!! Especially the part where you were painting, it symbolizes something for me, which I'm sure isn't what you were going for. It's sooooo amazing. I hope you make more in the future c:

it actually was supposed to symbolize something very important/personal to me, and i was originally going to end the video by burning the canvas but i wanted to keep it haha, thank you so much!! ♥

welp my desktop is now literally the largest fanart I’ve ever done. I made it this big on purpose. And I think this is ample motivation to finish chapter three. So anyone who cares about RLKN will get a nice surprise within a month.


my hand hurts.

i’ll upload the actual image soon. i just wanted to scream about the fact that I drew on a 1920 x 1080 canvas.

and the fact that i can’t fucking find a decent reference for ganny’s cloak so I BSed it.

anonymous asked:

Can you send your paintings to another countries?

The thing about the paintings is they’re just made on 22″x28″ cardstock (I can’t actually afford canvas) so they’re not very sturdy and are kind of large. However I could send a print if you wanted?

"Transition - Equinox" - Acrylic on Canvas

“Transition – Equinox” – Acrylic on Canvas

“Transition – Equinox” – August 2015 Acrylic on Canvas I have to admit, I actually took the idea for this one in part from my in-laws. They had gone to one of those wine and painting classes and had made two tree canvases that when put together, their branches formed into a heart. So yes, it’s loosely based on that idea. It’s also, as you can tell from the title a mix of spring and fall – which…

{A Blank Canvas}
Anything can go on this blank clean surface. I could draw whatever I want. I get to choose.

I made myself another dream/inspirational journal to decorate and put all my ideas and aspirations in. One of the awesome things I have learned over the years is, if you make a declaration of what you want, speak it into being and actually visualize yourself with an achievement or prize and truly believe that it is yours and that you deserve it, then it will be yours. Whatever we want we can have (Within the realm of morality). We just have to visualize what we want out of life and write it down, draw it, collect pictures and make a dream board. Ask. Believe. Receive. You deserve to have as much as you believe you deserve. This is the law of attraction.

What would be on your blank canvas? What are your dreams and aspirations? Remember, you can put whatever you want on the cover and fill the inside with whatever your heart desires. You can do this at anytime.
Start now. Make it however you want it to be.

Elements of art ASSIGNMENT

by Joan Celis

    There are different element that are involve and work together or on their own to create art. among this elements we find:

  • Lines
  • Shape
  • Forms
  • Space
  • Color
  • Texture

     One thing I will always remember is my high school teacher for art making us fill in a hole canvas with lines to a point where we would actually generate a piece of art. Another example is when i first went inside my drawing class and my prof. made us draw different shapes either organic or geometric forming objects and or giving a sense of length and width. This brings us then to the forms where the 3 dimensions define the form of a shape adding many characteristics. When it comes to space, is up to the artist to show how objects can be arrange if there will be depth of field, how much space between/around object, and the negative space. My favorite part, hands down, is the color where the hue, value, and intensity come to play. However, texture is also very important for it gives the observer the information about how a surface,object,etc. might be.

  Here i will put a chart to represent this elements.
