This is my watercolor painting “Audrey.”
The original piece is done using walnut ink, iron gall ink (which surprisingly turned blue after a wet wash) and a hint of warm watercolor for her lips and face. You can buy a Giclee print of it here.
The ever elusive question: How do I get better ‘quicker’? Well.. it involves a lot of sketchbooks, sketches, trial and error, studies and hard work - and that doesn’t come quickly. 30+ Sketchbooks, 3000+ pieces of paper, 10,000+ sketches

Scrap organizing! Needlings is a “low waste” small biz, you guise. #omg #scraphoarder
The aquarium is finally finished! I added a gauze top that has silver butterflies on it and tied a bow around it. The bow took a while to tie since it was so small lol. It also kept slipping off, but it’s done now! yay!
You can see the progression of the aquarium here, starting from the bottom most picture, where I just laid down the stones and “algae”. After, I made some “corals” and starfish out of polymer clay. A seahorse was also made then glued to the rocks. After the glue dried in gluing down everything, I poured a little bit of resin to cover the rocks so there is a smooth level to glue the yellow fish (so that is isn’t on the same level of the seahorse). Once the glue for the yellow fish dried as well, I filled the rest of the bottle up with resin.
Materials: polymer clay, resin, glue, nail polish (for the eyes since it was sparkly nail polish), pebbles, sponge thing (for the algae)
