Sunny summer!

I have been really busy during summer between painting the front of my house, recycling my backyard and working on a new design for my portfolio... well let's say I did love my summer. I just find it goes to fast!
But I always find time to discover new cultures or observe the new tendencies in Home decor and fashion. Lately I have been working on new collections, new textiles and new products. And I just love it!

Our last challenge at #winterschool2017

I am enjoying my Winter School 2017 with makeitindesign.com

The second creative brief was released January 30, 2017. The challenge is to create a frozen art and it is designed to get those creative spontaneous moments flowing more. You can have your family and friends get involved.

Creative Exercise 2 – Frozen 

  • With my son we found in my kitchen ( I forgot I had those :) ) cake holders in heart-shaped. It is perfect for Valentin month! Is in it!
  • We took gold twine
  • We found an old pack of red Koolaid for Valentine (we used it before to color Clay), we have added hazelnut, seeds of linen, orange, grapes, Basil leaves and water.  Perfect for squirrel and birds when it will melts in spring.
  • After, we have left the cake holders outside in the backyard on a tray for 2 hours. I am lucky enough to live in Canada -12°C.
  • And then, we have  hang are frozen art on a tree
