"Beauty is when something or someone really being itself. It's about purity, it's about being honest with oneself, and I think everyone can be beautiful. It's just a matter of accepting oneself. " - Giles Rosier
I enjoy sketching simply using pencil (mechanic pencil lately),drawing pen black and red for the lips.
Here's my selection of my recently sketched, capture using my pocket camera.
Have a wonderful Tuesday !

Decluttering a room sometimes feels like finding the treasure that is already within :) rather than longing and craving to have a new stuff at this tight economy moment, I found a lot of things that have a story with me and I think it would be fun to create something with it and make it more useful.
I found a fabrics, a cosmetic catalogue, pink feather, and a button on the box storage and the food paper too. This plain book is never been used for a long time, so I decided to use it as a Journal -- and I am interested in Art Journal .
I like collage and cutting interesting pictures and words from magazines or any interesting books, if I can't tear it up, I make a copy of the page or sometimes re-write it on the paper.
So, by reading the benefits of journaling for counteracts many of negative effects of stess, I would love to try this type of self-exploration tool.
I Am Open to All That is Good
I have a favorite pale white sweater that suddenly haven't wear it for almost a year.
While de-clutter my room, I also found a scrap of leathers that I get from Gammara's workshop at the time I'm freelance as a stylist and illustrator and it's a genuine leather.
So, I decided to combine it with my sweater, I make a sketch of how it would be appear on the sweater, then I cutting the leather into a 10 small triangle shape using a shape ruler and 1 bigger size for the center of collar.
I make an abstract shape too, but I decided for create a simple look on the sweater, so I choose the picture 3.
I glued the shape on the sweater using fabric glue and then suddenly I have a 'new' sweater.
This is not really a DIY tutorial, I want to share my ideas on reuse things that I find interesting to create.
More to share later, hope you have a beautiful week !
