The point of my blog is to show my experiences as a young artist so other artists, like me, or just students and adults, like me, can know they're not the only ones going through these sorts of things. I post mainly about art, but I'll also post updates and share some of the other interests I have, like YouTube, Bullet Journaling, and anything else I decide to try!

First Impressions | LUKAS Studio Watercolors (Half Pans)

Hello everyone! This week I'm reviewing/giving my first impression of the LUKAS Studio Watercolor half pans. I can't WAIT to start using these regularly. I'm not very good with watercolors yet and I can't seem to find these watercolors ANYWHERE anymore so I'm glad I took the leap and bought them when I did. I'll use them sparingly, haha ;) I got them from Jerry's Artarama and they have some REALLY good prices on art supplies! I've always heard of this website but I never really looked for…

First Bullet Journal | FLIP THROUGH

My First Bullet Journal! | COMPLETED

Hi everyone! I'm SO happy to finally be able to share this post with you! (: I'm officially out of my very first bullet journal, and I can't believe everything I've tried and all the people I've met because of it. I don't go over too too much in the video, but here is the link and I'll show some of my favorite spreads further down! First Bullet Journal | FLIP THROUGH // What I learned from this first bullet journal // I learned a lot from this journal! I started it in June/July (I count June…

New Hobby + #HPLettering Challenge Recap

Hello again! Today I'm sharing a new hobby I've found that I LOVE. Well, first off, I started reading Harry Potter this year (Amelia is so excited) and I'm in love with it! Also, hand lettering is my new hobby! I started in October with the #LetterTheOffice challenge from @thelittlestbujo on Instagram and I fell in love with different fonts and the fun of lettering! I do it all the time in my bullet journals now and I can definitely say I've improved and I'm pretty good at it! Anyone who…

Migrating from a Ruled Journal to a Dot Grid!

Bullet Journaling | Graduating from Ruled to Dot Grid

Hello there! I'm excited to let you all know I've started migrating into my Leuchtturm1917 A5 Dot Grid bullet journal! Right now I have a Ruled A5 Moleskine journal and I'm SO excited to get into working with the dot grid instead of measuring everything out. But I also have some thoughts on the matter that I'm sort of conflicted on, not that I'm complaining about my BuJo habits becoming easier with the dot grid, just some thought overall on the matter (: First off, for me it's still surreal…

Plan With Me | DECEMBER

Hello again! Today I'm sharing my December Plan With Me video! I'm SO proud of how my December came out, and my video actually ended up being slightly longer than I intended, but it has all good content, I think! Plan With Me | DECEMBER December is a major transition month for me. I'm adding and experimenting with a lot of things, so that way when I get to my Leuchtturm 1917 A5 Dot Grid Journal, I'll be totally prepared and know my style. December is the last month in my Moleskine ruled…

Figge College Invitational | My Artwork in a Museum!

Happy December, you guys! I'm still in denial December is here already! I have so much work to do with homemade gifts and artwork, phew! Anyways, I can't believe I didn't post this sooner! Earlier in the semester I was chosen as being one of seven students from my college to be showcased in the Figge Art Museum college invitational. It was my second year in the college invitational, two in the same year technically since the last reception was in February (they had it early this time…

My Lineart Process

Here's the second part of this video trilogy! Each part is explained/executed a little differently so hopefully that makes it more fun to watch! The Coloring Process will be up in a few weeks! My Lineart Process!

Painting Like Monet

Hey everyone! Back again with a weekly art video! This one is actually my Art History 2 research project. I'm turning it in this week so I figured it would be the best week to upload it! And surprisingly I got it to upload AT HOME in less than 15 minutes. Don't know how that happened considering it's a 13 minute video. Who knows, I'm not complaining! ;D Painting Like Monet - ACRYLIC SPEEDPAINT All of the colors of paint I used are in the description of the video, along with a link to the…

3 Marker Challenge!

Back again with the weekly art video: 3 MARKER CHALLENGE! I'm really excited to post this, because I was SO nervous to do this challenge for the first time and I'm so glad I did! I got pretty easy colors for my first time, thank goodness, but I feel like I could definitely go for a harder round of the 3 Marker Challenge in the future. I wanted to try and get one marker from each of my baskets, but I couldn't tell which ones I had chosen from, so I ended up getting some pretty similar…

Art Collective Trip to St. Louis!

Here's that extra post I told you readers about! ;D If you've been keeping up with my art channe, twitter, and tumblr, you've noticed this last week I've been uploading THREE extra videos! These videos are the vlog montages I took while my art collective was in St. Louis! This was the first big weekend trip the club has ever taken, and I'm so glad that my group was able to go. They're such a great group of people and I'm so grateful that this club has brought us together. I truly feel like I…

My Sketching Process!

Hello again! I'm here to share another weekly video: My Sketching Process! My Sketching Process! I'm not posting this video as a tutorial as much as I'm just showing you wonderful followers and subscribers how I create my artwork in a more detailed way than speedpaints. I never really include my sketching or lineart steps in my speedpaints because they take the longest to finish and my speedpaints would be way longer than they should be, in my opinion. So with these next few process videos…

"The Grandfather Tree" Details

The Grandfather Tree | Watercolor, Ink + Copic SPEEDPAINT Twitter photo of my grandpa and his piece! The video is just to some nice music, because I was getting emotional every time I tried to record it so here are the details for this picture! I used my Van Gogh watercolors for a majority of this piece, which was what I wanted to challenge myself with. I'm so used to my normal media that I wanted to branch out. I'm REALLY happy with how it all turned out, too, so that's good. I was really…

MOO Erasers and Canvas Paper Reviews

Hi everyone! My video this week was an experimental painting for me, but it was finally a painting in my style for once on my channel! Hahaha.. I incorporated two product reviews into it mainly because 3 separate videos would have been too much, in my opinion. I do go over the products in the video, but I'll also put my reviews here. MOO Erasers These erasers are now my new favorite! I LOVE not having a billion little shavings all over my desk after finishing a sketch. These MOO Erasers are…

My Coloring Process

Hi all! It's a new week, meaning a new art video! (: This week I'm sharing the final part of my "Process" trilogy, ending it with my coloring process! I REALLY love how this video turned out, and this trilogy in general, really. I never thought I'd be qualified or brave enough to make any sort of tutorial video, let alone three! Maybe in the future I'll do some on acrylic painting because that's my second strongest medium, by far. I'm really excited to see what else I can do with this! My…

3 PAINT CHALLENGE | Cactus Family, Long Time No See!

3 PAINT CHALLENGE | Cactus Family Long time no see, everybody!! So sorry I've been away so long! My homework/studying load is CRAZY this semester, and I'm honestly more stressed with 3 classes than I was with 5. ANYWAYS, I saved this video from the end of the summer so that I could post it right after midterm, just to keep you guys entertained about halfway through the college semester grind! I'm really hoping to get videos up more often either toward the end or after the semester ends…

Washi Tape | Haul + Collection

Hi again everyone! I'm happy to announce that I'm going to try REALLY hard in the next few weeks to get back into the habit of creating videos and blog posts regularly! Now, I probably won't be super regular for the last few weeks of the semester, because...you know...FINALS. All that fun stuff. I do have at least 3 or 4 videos edited / planned for uploading and filming that are sort of time sensitive, so they have to be done fairly soon! WASHI TAPE | Collection + Haul This week's video…
