New Art :-) A painting of Bunny Meyer

Hi everyone, 

For my second YouTuber Tuesday art video I decided to paint Bunny Meyer.

 I chose to paint Bunny because I really love her YouTube channel - she is so funny and has a very likeable and fun personality, her videos always cheer me up. 

I decided to create this artwork with watercolour paints - watercolours are quite a tricky medium to use but they can give such beautiful effects. I enjoyed working with them and especially creating the background of this painting. I hope you like the painting, if you would like to watch me create this artwork you can watch the video below ^_^ 

Thank you for reading, I hope you like the painting ^_^
Love from Allanah x

New Drawing - Brittany Balyn

Hi everyone!

I have some new art to show you :-)

I have decided to start a new series of portraits (5 in total for this series), these will be paintings & drawings of my favourite YouTubers.

I have called the series 'YouTuber Tuesday' as each week I will be creating a new artwork and videoing the progress; then on the Tuesday I will upload the finished artwork to my YouTube channel.

For week 1 I chose to draw Brittany Balyn who is a Fashion Blogger and Beauty Guru. I really enjoy her videos as she seems so down to earth and lovely.

Here is the video of my drawing. I hope you like it. ^_^ 

I will see you next Tuesday, thanks for reading!

Super Cute Custom Converse Frozen Shoes

Hi there everyone,

I have been super busy lately with updating my website and creating new video content that I actually forgot to write a post about my customised Frozen shoes! 

After my Alice in Wonderland custom shoe design was so well received I decided to create another pair but this time inspired by Disney's Frozen. Here is the video I created of me making the shoes...

And here are some pictures of the shoes. I hope you like them ^_^

Thank you for reading, more updates coming soon! I promise :-) x

News News News!

Hello there everyone!

I have some updates for you all. The first being...

I have updated my personal website;

 Allanah Claire - Website

My personal website is currently about 95% complete; I still have some improvements I would love to put into place. I will be making these improvements over the next few days; however, I am very proud to say that the new website is up and running and is hopefully a lot more easier to view and use. 
I worked solidly for 2 days (and into the nights, hehe) working on it and I am very happy with the results - I hope you like it too.

Another update is that I have created some brand new social media accounts. I created these as I would really love to be able to connect with other artists and people that enjoy my work. So, if you fancy it send me a tweet or follow me on instagram, don't be shy! :-)

  •  & also a new instagram account! Click on the image to be taken to my instagram page. My Instagram handle is 'AllanahClaire'

Thank you for reading. All the best,

New Art Cushions!

Hi everyone,

I haven't updated my blog in quite a while but I have lots to update you all on...
My first little update is that I have been learning how to sew! I decided I would love to create more of a variety of products featuring my artworks; so I thought I would start off this little idea by creating some cute cushions.

My mum very kindly offered to teach me how to use a sewing machine - it was quite a challenge, to say the least, but, I do hope I will be able to improve over time. So, with my mums help we made a few cushions with my painting designs on...

My favourite cushion design we both created is the Elsa cushion; I think it looks really cute and it's uplifting too. I love Elsa's character in the movie Frozen.

...For another cushion design I created a watercolour painting of one of my favourite perfume bottles, Vera Wang - Princess (it was gifted to me by my boyfriend last christmas, I love the bottle so much & the perfume smells of sweets ...mmmm). It was great fun to create. I really enjoyed getting all the detail into the bottle & using vivid colours.

Here is a photograph of the fabric - I got my designs printed on a linen mix cotton fabric by a company in America, especially to make these cushions. It was really exciting to see them when they came in the post.

Here is the Vera Wang Princess Perfume Cushion. I love the colours in this design.

Overall, I think my little cushion making experiment was a hit, it was good fun and it's rewarding to see my artworks on other items. I also designed a Miss Dior Cushion, so I will have to edit this post and put a picture in for you all soon. :-) Hopefully I will think of some more designs soon to add to my little collection of cushions.

If you would like to purchase one of my handmade cushions they are available to purchase through my Etsy store. 

I really hope you enjoyed reading my blog. Best Wishes,
Allanah Claire x
