And now you are thinking, WHAT THE FUCK IS SHE DOING, that is what I am thinking anyway!

 

I have been haning around a crowd of warhammer gamers, seeing them every week putting together small miniture models and making game boards and other gear to play is starting to rub off. I wanted to make a castle ruin. My first sketch looks like a “My little pony” castle, so I changed it a little, I put it on a rock ^^

It is far from done, but it is exciting and when I am finished I will probably donate it to the warhammer game club.

It’s hanging

Blog, Creativity

Well, it seems like it will work as a lampshade. The problem is to find a good lamp for it. At first I bought a lamp that gave really good light but at the same time it spread the light a bit to well. The pattern in the lampshade did not come forth at all with this lamp.

On my second try I put in a smaller lamp, it gave a warmer light and it turned out that some of the lampshade came forth, not enough though. I think the problem is that the wire is too thin to come forth as shades on the wall. Perhaps I need to make another try and see if I can change the outcome somehow : )

Lampshade

I have been working really hard on making a lampshade. Some day it has been a walk on roses and some days it sucks the worst. Today I finished the actual lampshade, yay for me. I bought a base lampshade, like the one below, but a black one.

I thought that if I bought a base I would not have to mind the construction to hold the lamp in place. Today I bought the lamp cord and in some fucked up way it did not match at all. I really thought there would be a standard to these kind of things, obviously not. So what to do, well what else than go at  it with tools and make it fit, there is no other way. I did it, though I doubt I will be able to take it off if I were to change my mind. One could think everything would work now and I am super happy.

There    was    no    connecting plug   !!

Back to the store tomorrow and buy one, and perhaps tomorrow I will have my lamp hanging in the ceiling.

Check in tomorrow to see if I yet again failed or not.

New art in my portfolio

Blog, Creativity, Scribbles

I have finally updated my portfolio, I am not all done yet, but it is a start!

 

MY PORTFOLIO

 

I still have some issues to sort out. Like, how I want to order things in categories and what to actually show you all. But for now, if you click on category Sculptures you can view new stuff. A few of them was made for the applications for the universities I applied to, what went where is not important though, one thing led to another, literally.

Enjoy!

More updates will come : )

One answer

Blog, Scribbles

It has been raining all day long.

Suddenly a noise came from the front door, the mail is here. When I went out to get a cup of coffee in the kitchen I decided to go pick up the mail, which for the record was wet from the rain. I had got a letter from the university of Dalarna.

The letter said:

“Vår bedömning är att dina arbetsprover visar att du har den kompetens och förmåga som behövs för att tillgodogöra dig utbildningens gestaltande moment”
~Högskolan Dalarna

In english, the assignments I sent in has been approved! which means… I have been accepted to my university of first choice!! Yay for me!

Put a brush on the wall

The studio I share with two other women is a damp cellar with boring white walls, what would you have done if you had wall paint standing around and time to do as you please…

Two cars

Blog, Creativity, Scribbles

One of the assignments for the university of Umeå was to paint a toy car in a window with a car on the outside. I had to make two paintings of the same motive, one with daylight and one with electric lighting. I thought the assignment was boring, I waited to the last minute and found it very… good, it felt like I learned something from it.

That due dates are over means that I will share lots of exciting stuff I have been working on the last 6 months. I am also going to update my portfolio properly!
