I found a fun new YouTube Channel today called VamosART. The channel is mostly composed of time-lapse videos show how the artist drew a particular piece of art. In my search, I found some 3D art, anamorphic illusions, optical illusions, and some realistic artwork. I watched a few of the videos and knew that I had to share it.
Personally, I like the realistic drawings, but many of you already know, based on my own drawings. All of the drawings are fantastic though.
You should really check out the channel if you like this video.
This one is title The fall into sin.
My fall wreath has been hanging on my door for entirely too long. I’ve been meaning to take it down for a while but, I needed something pretty to replace it with. Ideally something spring-inspired because I’m about done with all of this snow and 20 degree weather. So, if you are feeling the same way, you can take a big leap into spring as well. At least from an inspirational standpoint…
Things You Will Need:
Hot glue gun*
*These materials are not pictured in the image above but are necessary for the DIY project.
Glue one side of your ribbon to the wreath frame and begin to wrap in around until you run out.
FYI: If you only use 1 yard of 1″ ribbon, you won’t make it the whole way around the wreath. You could buy two yards of ribbon, or you could add some scrap fabric to the open end like I do in the following step.
Cut and position some scrap fabric over the open area of the wreath. I hot glued my fabric (because I’m too lazy to sew it).
Arrange the flowers so that they cover the extra piece of fabric. Start glueing on the flowers until you have something like in the above image.
Hang it up with, you guessed it, some more ribbon, and you’ve got yourself a fun spring-inspired wreath.It is much better having a reminder that spring is coming and winter HAS to be ending at some point.
Hope you like this one! Happy crafting!
Andres Amador is an artist who resides in San Francisco, California. He’s not your typical artist though. He prefers to work with a temporary medium; one that will get washed away by the next morning. He makes art in the sand on the beaches of CA. I’m not talking about sand castles and motes. He uses a rake to make beautiful designs in the sand that can be up to 100,000 sq. ft, better known as earthscape art.
You can learn more about Andres on his facebook page.
Maybe him an Simon Beck should get together and make art. I bet it would be pretty amazing.
I found this artwork on Amazing Oasis

Last Monday I made coconut lotion also, but this week I used unrefined coconut oil. It isn’t as oily as the refined oil and it smells more like coconuts. I like that smell so I enjoy this kind more. It was really easy to make and took about 10 minutes.
Things You Will Need:
Spoon some coconut oil into a large bowl. Make sure it is about the amount of lotion you want to end up with. (I added more after I took the picture.)
Add in a tablespoon of olive oil for every cup of coconut oil and begin mixing it all together. Continue until you get a whipped consistency.
When you are happy with it, add in the essential oils and mix for another few seconds to make sure it is mixed in. I used peppermint and lavender and it smells amazing!
Now you can spoon it into a container and enjoy it! Let me know what you think!
This project is a really neat idea, especially since spring is right around the corner (we can only hope). I found this fun project on The Artful Parent today. All you do is lay out flower petals on contact paper and stick it to a glass window. It looks fantastic! Go check it out on that blog for more images though. It could be a great project to do with your kids, if they have the patience.
When it is actually warm enough for flowers to grow, I might give this a shot!
