Art Attempts + A Recent Project

salutations-gold

What’s up, friends? IT MIGHT SNOW HERE TOMORROW. We’ve already gotten snow once this winter (more on that in another post), and it’s never snowed twice here in one winter, so this is pretty amazing!!

Snow aside, I’m going to be sharing some of my art in today’s post! The majority of my art is either bible verses, quotes, or random sketches. None of it is exactly amazing, but I have fun creating it, and I hope you’ll enjoy looking through it! We’ll start with a bunch of bible verses that I’ve drawn in church on Sunday mornings. πŸ™‚

Now for some random sketches and quotes. πŸ˜€

I saw this quote on Pinterest and really liked it. I kinda messed up on the proportions of the letters, though. πŸ˜›

This girl looks rather unhappy. I meant for her to look thoughtful, but that didn’t turn out quite right. Hmm. XD

In case you couldn’t tell, this is the moon and the stars. It’s a really quick drawing I did when I was bored, so it’s not the best.

I drew this while I was waitingΒ in the orthodontist last week. XD

This drawing was inspired by Allison’s Art Lab post! It was surprisingly easy and really fun to do – you should all check out her post. πŸ™‚

I had so much fun drawing the pattern on the mountains in the above drawing that I used it for several more drawings. πŸ˜›

Alright, now onto some ATCs! (In case you don’t know what anΒ ATC is, you can clickΒ HEREΒ to see Hayley’s post on them.)

Here’s an overview of some of the ATCs that I’ve made lately. Scroll down to see close-ups of each one. πŸ™‚

Here are the other 4 ATCs that I made. I have a ton more, but I’m pretty sure I posted pictures of them a while ago. XD

Okay, that’s it for today’s art! Which of my drawings/ATCs was your favorite?

Aside from drawing, I’ve been working on a rather large project lately – decorating the walls in my bedroom. I share a room with my sisters and I sleep on the top bunk of a bunk bed, so I don’t have a ton of space to decorate. However, I’ve still managed to create a bright, comfy and colorful space that I’m pretty proud of. πŸ™‚

It is my pleasure to introduce to you…

MY SECRET LAIR. Also known as the place where I read and occasionally sleep. XD You can scroll down to see more photos. πŸ˜€

Isn’t this gold letterboard so pretty? I got it at Target along with the gold grid next to it, and I love them both!

This is the space above the back of my bed. I got some of my photos printed and I hung them on the string lights along with a few ATCs. πŸ™‚

What do you guys think? I hope you enjoyed this post –Β thanks so much for reading! ❀ I hope you’re all having a wonderful week!

What have you been creating lately?

  1. That’s cool that you might be getting snow! We don’t usually get a lot of snow, but it snowed all day today, and so now we probably have a few inches out there. I love the ways you used Allison’s recent art tutorial! Your drawings look great! Also, I really like your ATCs, especially the Christmas light one. Your decorations above your bed look nice, as well.

    1. Aw, thanks so much, Rebecca!! Haha, I love Target and I wish we had one nearby. XD I ordered everything off their website – they have some great things on there that aren’t sold in stores and often you can get free shipping!

  3. Your art and room is GORGEOUS! I love the little booky hints- from the pillow on your bed to the “Always” ATC (wow I’m such a book nerd πŸ˜‚) Your room is so colorful! We moved a while ago, so I haven’t had time to make my room super colorful.
    This was a really fun post!

  4. Aaaah!! I just fainted because your art is soooo good! How do you get your word art to be so perfect?? And I thought that I was scrolling down to a picture of your foot on a notebook when I saw that picture you drew at the orthodontist!! You’re such a talented artist – I can’t even……I like all of your ATCs – but my favorites are the “Let it Snow” one to the Harry Potter “Always” ATC (that’s Harry Potter right… :oops:)
    Keep it up!!

  5. SNOW?!?! You are sooooo lucky!!! You are good at art!! I love the travel pictures! You really love that mountain technique XD Great atc’s! Also your secret lair looks AWESOME!!!! I also share a room with my sister and have a top bunk!! Sadly I can’t really decorate my walls because the material is really bumpy so tape doesn’t stick and it just falls off 😦

  7. I love this post! All your art is beautiful. πŸ™‚ For the one that says Here I Am to Worship, I am now singing the song that goes, “here I am to worship, here I am to bow down, here I am to say that you’re My God….” Is that what you quoted it from?
    MY HEARTT WHEN I SAW THE HARRY POTTER ATC. Always. sniffs bursts into tears screams WHYYY?!!!? XD
    Anywayyy, I also love your bedroom wall! It is absolutely adorable, and makes me wish my wall looked the same way. I have been wanting a letterboard lately, perhaps I shall get one. πŸ˜‰ All your decor is just so cute!

      Ooh, that’s so exciting that you’re re-doing your blog! I’m sure you’ll do a great job. I don’t have a ton of advice, but one thing that is pretty important is to pick a color palette and stick to it (for example, my blog is mainly gold, gray, and purple). You can also click on this link to see the series on graphic design that I did with Megan. πŸ™‚ https://clara-and-co.com/diy-design/

  9. Wonderful art and your bed space looks AMAZING! Perhaps I should clean my room so I can enjoy its decoration/design more…. πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜€ . I have a letter-board too, and it is so fun! ❀ I love putting and changing encouraging verses/quotes on it.

    1. Thank you so much, Gracie!! Ooh yes, ATCs are so cool – you should totally make some! If you get a sibling or a friend to make some with you, then you can trade them – that’s really fun to do. πŸ˜€

  10. it started snowing this morning, and it hasn’t stopped! we’ve got several inches, and its so fun to play in. ❀
    your drawings are so pretty! and I love how you decorated your space. πŸ™‚ my corner is crazy, on the wall at my headboard is a square of pictures from calendars, all nature scenes, and one plain one of the ocean has a starfish ornament tacked to the middle of it. the wall to the right has a crazy mix of star wars drawings i’ve done, a small kotlc poster, some photos of the avengers, and a page from a calvin and hobbes book. the actual headboard of my bed has a line of beenie babies, small dolls, and hard animals, and there’s an origami dragon hanging from the ceiling. its chaotic, and never stops growing, and never matches, and it fits me perfectly. ❀
    again, your art work is great! πŸ˜€

  12. AHHH I love looking through your art! β™₯ My favorite is probably the spaghetti mountain art – although I might be a bit biased. XD But seriously, it looks SO pretty! And the last one of those must have taken forever to draw, am I right? O.o It looks amazing, though. πŸ™‚
    Oh, and I LOVE the background for your art pictures as well! It’s so cute and neat. πŸ˜€
    Also whoa, all those prints above your bed are beautiful! I love the color scheme and how it all fits together. πŸ™‚
