>> Art blog
Messy bunch of reblogs contain e.g. art I find impressive, beautiful or interesting, photography, animals of many sort (especially cats!), overall things I find cute, gaming related posts, tattoos, nail art, and fandoms including Assassin's Creed, Pacific Rim, Shingeki no Kyojin, Disney, Ghibli, Pokémon, Mass Effect and Adventure Time, to name a few. You never know.
I by myself am doing this and that. Art doodles, handcrafts, glass work, cosplay, gaming, roleplaying, list goes on. I'm a young woman in my 20s living in Finland, Tampere, and study in Tampere University of Applied Sciences' Degree Programme in Media (an English interactive media program). My dearest dream in the moment is to own a cat. *u*
Process of Yuzen - The making of a kimono
Now I understand why real kimonos are so expensive.
One of my kimono was made using Yuzen. I have it hanging on a wall because it is a work of art worthy of being adored.
This must be the most beautiful DIY tutorial I have ever seen. And it so happens to be in style of this weekend. Found on Ulicam, a very nice blog by Ulrika Kestere, photographer and illustrator. For the whole tutorial and lot’s of inspiration, click here.
Needle felted rough collie based on my own dog Deira. This was a present for my mum’s birthday last year, and I am currently working on another for Mother’s Day, only this will be a blue merle colouring to match our other dog, Willow (we have three, so I have to make all three… /sigh).

“52 Forms of Fungi” knitted sculptural work by Leigh Martin
Norway has just emerged as a challenger for Japan’s title as Masters of Awesome Cuteness. These photos were taken on the set of “Piip-Show”, a live reality tv show following the lives of a cast comprised of wild birds and the occasional squirrel. Conceived by Norwegian freelance photographer Magne Klann, the show takes place on a set which is an outdoor bird feeder modeled after Java, a well-known coffee shop in Oslo, Norway.
“Different personalities meet inside the bar. Among others a short tempered nuthatch, a blue tit with the memory of a gold fish, a happy-go-lucky great tit, and a depressed bullfinch. Like in any other bar there is bickering, petty theft, fighting and attempts at romance”.
We can’t help but try to pair these animals with various cast members from Seinfeld.
REDUCE THE NEED FOR PLASTIC BAGS WITH A TRADITIONAL JAPANESE ECO BAG
Furoshiki is a traditional Japanese wrapping cloth which is used to carry many different items and can be a great way to help the environment by using as a re-usable eco-shopping cloth.

The material has been hand dyed with turmeric, tea and onions skins. Then hand printed with lino cuts to represent the larvae, workers, drones and the single queen bee. The quilt was then then pieced, quilted and bound by hand.
The bees are arranged in a rough imitation of the structure of a hive: the queen is surrounded by workers, each drone and larvae are attended by their own workers, while others form a circle to represent a “bee dance” and some stand guard at the entrance to the hive.
A coptic stitched sketchbook I made as a Christmas present out of recycled materials (except the paper for the pages, that I had to buy).
I used this tutorial for binding, but the embroidery I had to figure out myself (which was… interesting, because the last time I’ve done anything similar was when I was a kid and sewed on those templates that already have holes and numbers in them).
I screwed up the first one and had to start over, but I’m kinda pleased with how it came out in the end. It was surprisingly fun making this, even though I killed my fingers poking the holes through the cardboard. :’D
truebluemeandyou: Easy Golden Snitch Ornament. One of my favorites from 2011.

Bambi necklace that I made for my friend as a Christmas present. Brass and copper. Sorry for the bad quality, I will take a better photo soon. Just wanted to share this one with you. :)
I always loose it at ‘I AM NO MAN’S BOSOM!’
