A first peek...

I have always loved art. Loved it.
I love how it relaxes my mind after a crazy day, I love how I am in full control of my own work and can express exactly what I am thinking and how I am feeling at that moment in time. I also love how sometimes it doesn't have to be 'feelings' art, but more about creating something beautiful for a space or a home either for myself or for others.
Creating it for others is exactly what I did for the first time ever this Christmas just gone for some friends. I decided as well as buying them some little presents, I would create something personal and pretty they could keep and display in their homes (hopefully)! Below are the three pieces I did and FYI-The frames are super pretty and are from good old IKEA.

Each piece I feel represents the person I gave it to and I could not only put it to their personality, but see it within their environment. They are fun, feminine, cute and I think very complimentary of the frames I found in IKEA. I used watercolour and some acrylic for all three pieces and then a shading pen for added highlights where needed.

I hope you like these prints and if you have any questions about them or anything else, please comment below-I'd love to hear from you!
