My Favourite Art Essentials: Because It’s School Holidays!

My Favourite Art Supplies! - Miss Caly

The school holidays began last week and so comes the time to finally have a nice long break from those hours of sitting behind wooden desks, staring blankly at a white board. Yayyyyyy!….. yay…? Now half the holidays have passed and I’m still sitting behind my wooden desk, not doing anything grand. Seriously, where has the time gone?!

Well, I guess my time has gone into doing several things. First of all, I’ve been watching Masterchef and binge watching Game of Thrones (in which my only regret is not watching it sooner). Apart from that, I’ve also been making DIY phone cases (see these on my Instagram!), eating lots, doodling like crazy and occasionally stepping foot out into the vast terrains of my backyard to experience some vitamin D.  Continue reading

Something very, very exciting happened last month that I never got to share with you. I was so ecstatic when it happened – it was like Christmas came early… Can you guess?

Okay, I know, I know, it’s not all that grand, but I truly was over the moon. In case you don’t know, Prismacolors can be considered as one of those high(er)-end kind of pencils and although they’re quite pricey, they’re said to be one of the best quality you can get. Maybe not the best, but boy are they so satisfying to own.  Continue reading

Inside my Sketchbook!

 

Inside my Sketchbook - Miss Caly

My mini sketchbook is something I like to keep with me wherever I go. It’s particularly perfect for those boring car rides or simply  just for doodling whenever I feel like it. I got my sketchbook back when I went to Japan and ever since, it’s become my best friend. #sketchbooklove!

You may have already had a peek at my sketches on Instagram, but today I thought I might share little tour with you of what I’ve done so far. I love drawing in pen because it’s so free and unrestricted. Sometimes I use my sketchbook for practising drawing techniques or following tutorials on how to draw certain things. Other times, I simply love to create random patterns until they form something weird and wonderful. Continue reading

Doodling, Just Because…

I like to draw

on paper, on worksheets, on napkins – anything, really.

I’ve noticed that people like to express themselves in different ways, whether it’d be writing a poem, a story, dancing, making a speech or simply or ranting to other people. There are endless ways in showing our feelings and getting them out there into the world so that they are no longer caged inside us. Well, I like to draw.  Continue reading

Yesterday I saw a video on YouTube on how to digitalise pencil drawings and thought I just had to give it a go. Until now, my art has been mostly done with pencil/pen and paper, but my friend, times are changing…
