Who likes tea? Tea 

My friend Celia who I've known since high school has just opened an Etsy shop selling certified organic herbal teas! Please check out her store Wild Earth Organic Teas :D .

She mixes the blends herself and uses ingredients such as hibiscus, chamomile, lemon myrtle and lavender. Have fun browsing her shop!
Vesper - Art Trade with heathergk0
This is Vesper, heathergk0 's star-counting dragon OC!

We did an art trade for fun and I thought this character looked interesting :D.

More about him here: fav.me/daxzvxr

He apparently hasn't finished counting the stars yet, so this side of him hasn't got as many stars on it.
I think the thing I love about his personality is that he probably hasn't noticed how awkward he looks trying to perch in that tree. :star: There's stars to be counted! :star:

I've realised I haven't drawn many dragons, so I found this was a great opportunity to draw one in an unusual pose, with the added uniqueness of him using his journal. I had to shift the position of the wings a few times in early sketches because I didn't want them to block too much of his body.
Stars are also really hard to colour in pencil :XD:.
I don't think I've ever come up with a consistent way of drawing tree leaves but I sort of like the storybook feel from this method.


Drawn in HB & 2B mechanical pencil.
Coloured in Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils.

Update: Here's what heathergk0 drew for me! fav.me/db0exa4

Just a friendly request - please don't tag me in things like memes on Instagram or other social media, as these are work accounts and not personal ones :). Thanks!
Chinese/Lunar New Year Hairclips
This year I decided I needed something red for Chinese New Year, and I haven't made something for myself for a while. I don't normally wear red, it's hard to find a shade that's flattering on me :XD:. But I'll do it for this celebration, just once a year.

I've been making clips in this style for some time but this colour combination is special.

Red and gold are important colours in our culture and are often used for celebrations. Even traditional Chinese wedding dresses are red (white is used for funerals and mourning).
This is because red is the colour of blood and so it represents life.
Gold represents prosperity, as it's literally used for jewellery and money.

I've mentioned it to some friends before but I've never elaborated on it much -  a lot of my designs are Chinese influenced. I don't often directly use imagery from traditional Chinese art so it's a bit more subtle. Usually it's just the influence of borders and shapes, and often themes that are common in our culture like the moon & stars, plants and water.

Made with Fimo Soft polymer clay & gloss glaze and Crystals from Swarovski.

I got into art & craft when I was about 10 years old and bought a kit to make plaster of paris tropical fish. About 2 years and countless painted fish later, I said to myself "What am I going to do with all of this?!?"

I stopped making the fish for a while but I had a lot of acrylic paint left over from it and started doing other things like decorating wood boxes, doing beaded jewellery, temporary stained glass, stencilling...etc. And from that kept accumulating lots of craft materials.

I've been learning to draw since about 2006, and I'm currently working mostly with polymer clay.

I have an Etsy store: www.etsy.com/shop/BlueLilyCrafts.
I can also be found on Pinterest: pinterest.com/bluelilycrafts/

Here you'll find mostly drawings, some photos, things I have for sale and the other random crafts I dabble in.
