Handi Mandi TV: DIY Jewellery – Macrame + Hex Nut

Continuing with some more DIY Jewellery, I hope you’re enjoying it as much as I am. It’s so gratifying to make something for yourself. I didn’t get a chance to mention this in the video, but I have a few friends who will be ordering some of my bracelets from me for their family members as stocking stuffers. Yeah! Get the ball rolling enough and it may lead somewhere . . . (note to self: make sure to use steering, lol)

Painting with Bubbles – Divine Fingerprint (Rainbow + Gold) Time Lapse

I wanted to continue exploring a new art medium using bubbles and food colouring which I started last week (link below). This time I used much more, like ridiculously more food colouring for the project so it would not be so washed out and transparent. I hope you like it as much as I do, because it turned out fantastic.

If you have any requests, feedback or replies (written or video), please post them below. I would love to hear from all of you.

Handi Mandi TV – Sculptural Painting With Melted Crayons – Finished Product

This is the finished product from my second painting with melted crayons, this time I experimented with the sculptural element allowed with this medium that wouldn’t be possible with just paint. I will show you the difference between the 2D and 3D paintings so that you can see the difference. I also give you some tips and tricks to help make your project go more efficiently. Please share your works of art via video replies, comments or links to your work, I would love to check them out.

Uchben Hatsutsil ~ "AncientBeauty" in Mayan


A special thank you for all my birthday wishes from friends and family and a sneak at some of the bargain hunting I did the day before at the mall. Finally, I give you guys a little taste of the design I’ve been working on [second Behance link, illustration called ‘Uchben Hatsutsil (“Ancient Beauty” in Mayan) ‘]

This is where I walk you through all the images that I used for inspiration and give you a look at how my mind works in developing my designs and how I do my research for each fashion illustration that you can find on my Behance portfolio.

Watch me colour my hand-drawn fashion illustration using Laurentien pencil crayons and drawing pens. Learn some of the techniques I use to add definition and depth to the illustration and the techniques to make it stand off the page.
