Drawn Magazine

One of the courses this term involved developing our own magazine. We had to come up with a subject and create a whole brand around it.

My brand became Drawn, a magazine focused on every aspect of illustrating. Drawn is supposed to inspire and inform both the professionals as the amateurs.

You can check Drawn out for yourself, just click here

Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day. A day of pampering your mum. Like everyone suddenly loves their mom a tat more that particular day. I think it’s just an excuse for shop owners to sell us stuff for our mum, as if your a bad son or daughter if you don’t.

I got our mum something anyway (I had to do something for both me and my brother ’cause he lives in Ghana). At days like this breakfast means gift-time so I brought mum her present along with her cup of tea! we gave her a cute green glass lantern with white flower shaped wire wrapped around it. Inside I put a similar green candle with white dots. Mum really liked it!

After breakfast mum and dad went to my grandma’s and I went to work. It was such a lovely day, so I couldn’t stay inside. After work I went straight to Horsterpark for a walk and I took some pictures.

I also did some street art again! …better name it playground art though

That night we decided to go out and grab something to eat. So we went to Emmerich. They have a boulevard over there packed with little restaurants. It really was nice being there with mum and dad! After dinner mum was brought a rose by a waiter because of Mother’s Day.

Happy Mother’s Day ❤

the ScoutFit redemption

Not as fond of the new ScoutFit as they want you to be? Neighter am I. Non of the adjustments are an improvement in my opinion. I liked the old fabric better, I liked the old colors better and definitely don’t get why they moved the shoulder patches to inside your sleeve?! I’ve been wearing my sleeves rolled up for ages and I never needed anything to keep them there.

Anyway, I needed a new ScoutFit because I joined the scouts. Now I’m stuck with this new ScoutFit because the shop assistant wouldn’t sell me an old ScoutFit. Grr..

Well, time to pimp my ScoutFit, the old fashioned way!

First I tore of the holding-up-your-sleeve-thingies with this pointy thing

I took a good look at the sleeve thingies and came to the conclusion they’ll make excellent shoulder patches. But before I could get started I had to get rid of the tiny shoulder loop they installed. Like they could fool us in how useful it would become. Yeah.. right. I took it off

Next I pinned the sleeve thingies on my ScoutFit. This had to be done very careful because if you don’t do this proper you’ll end up with wonky shoulder patches.

The next step is a very important one, choosing the right shade of yarn! If you chose wrong, everyone will notice your adjustments immediately!

Then I grabbed the sawing machine and started fastening both the shoulder patches to my ScoutFit. If you follow the sowing lines that are already on your ScoutFit, no one will ever notice your shoulder patches shouldn’t be there!

After finishing the fastening, I had to determent the exact location of the buttons. For that you’ll have to lay your ScoutFit down on a flat surface. Than you’ll take an pen and draw a dot trough the shoulder patch buttonhole onto the fabric beneath it. That’s the button-to-be 🙂

I think you noticed the ScoutFit buttons to be kinda small, so it would be hard to fasten them with the sowing machine. This has to be done by hand. Be careful not to poke your finger, it hurts!

And here it is, your new and improved ScoutFit!

The only things left to do now are fastening your shoulder patches to the buttons, put on your ScoutFit and be happy with the way it has it’s old look back 😀 I know I am!

Beter Late than never

I bought 2 pumpkins a week for Halloween, so Matt and I could make Jack o’Lanterns. But the pumpkins were so hard we couldn’t get our knives into them. So we made Jack o’Apples for Halloween!

I thought they were rather fabulous!
But last night we decided to give the pumpkins an other try, we made Jack o’Lanterns at last! ^^

I’m very proud of my pumpkin!

Got to love the fall..

I love the fall.. All the trees are turning orange and yellow. And all those colorfull leaves lying on the ground. It’s really pretty to look at and to walk trough. I really feel the urge to go out and walk trough the forest or a park. Just admiring, having a great time and taking pictures. It’s just to bad that it’s almost constantly raining in the Netherlands, so I’ll have to wait for a beautiful sunny and dry day. I can’t wait!
