My Wedding Day Flowers – The Digital Dozen Does Paper

Hi everyone!

It’s day 5 of the Digital Dozen does Paper! So far this week, I’ve done paper planes, love letters, wrapping paper, and colouring books.

I was really having a hard time coming up with an idea for the final day of The Digital Dozen does Paper when suddenly it occurred to me. There was one day in my life on which paper had an unusual significance. Don’t get me wrong, paper is important on many days – we use it to learn, to immerse ourselves in stories, to express ourselves. But on this one day, paper was a part of the celebration of my husband and I choosing a life together – my wedding day! I decided that rather than buying expensive flowers which would only wilt and die, I’d make my own flowers for my and my bridesmaid’s bouquets, as well as all of the table decor – from paper! In fact, I posted a little about the process of making the flowers. I absolutely loved them and today’s nail art is inspired by those paper flowers that I painstakingly folded.

Paper Planes – The Digital Dozen Does Paper

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of the Digital Dozen does paper! Can you believe the week is almost over already? I really feel as though this week as flown by. I have a more detailed freehand look today, inspired by paper planes! This is my recreation of a recent nail art posted by Narmai of Piggieluv, with my own spin of course. Narmai has the most amazing nail art ideas, but it is always a little intimidating trying to recreate them because she is so talented! Even though I think her original look was better, I’m pretty happy with my version.

The Digital Dozen Does Get to Know Me: Running!

Hi everyone!

It’s the final day of Digital Dozen Get to Know Me week! I’ve only managed to share 3 nail arts this week because I’ve been particularly busy with presentations, field trips and proposals due, but be sure to check out the other Digital Dozen members’ blogs and get to know them a little better.

So far this week, I’ve shared something about my career and my sweet kitty-cat. You already know that my hobby is nail art. Today I’ve done nails dedicated to the type of exercise I enjoy – running! Painted Fingertips | Running girl nail art (more…)

The Digital Dozen Does Art: Flamingo Falls

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of The Digital Dozen does art! Today I’m sharing what is probably my favourite look for the week, although I still need to do something for tomorrow. After I’d done the first couple of designs, I was struggling to think of ideas, so I decided to peruse DeviantArt for some new art inspiration. There, I came upon a beautiful painting called Flamingo Falls by user AnnMarieBone. She has done a lot of stunning art, it’s worth taking a look!

The Digital Dozen Does Art: The Scream

Hi everyone!

It’s Digital Dozen week! This week’s theme is art and it’s actually the second time that this is a Digital Dozen theme. The first time was long before I was a member of the group, though. I was pretty excited about this theme, even though it’s a tough one! I knew that it would challenge me to create some really cool nail art, and it definitely has. I’ve done three of the looks for this week so far and I really like all of them. We’ll see how it goes with the last two!

For the first art look for this week, I decided to go with a very famous painting: The Scream by Edvard Munch. Painted Fingertips | The Digital Dozen Does Art - The Scream by Edvard Munch (more…)
