Life can get really busy, and sometimes it's hard to take a step back to check in with yourself and see how you're doing.
I'm making a regular effort to ensure my week includes some '#selfcare' time. Sometimes it feels good to #meditate, light some #candles, put some #soothing music on, make a herbal tea and have the lights low. Whether I'm #journalling, #drawing or just #relaxing, I always feel better for having taken that time out for myself.
I've burned many different candles with lots of different #fragrances, so I know which ones #zen me out the most...but the time has come for me to want to try my hand at making my own ♥️ I introduce to you, my first home made #candle! The fragrance is 'seaweed and juniper' and I cannot wait for it to fully set so I can burn it and enjoy 😍
I'm really getting into that creative vibe at the moment. I want to #experiment with as many different mediums as I can with a view to seeing what feels good and really makes my #illustrations pop ✨
Today, #oilpastels came out of my little box of creative tricks first so I decided to use those on my #shubunkins if you have any tips or suggestions of other #creative mediums you think I should try, give me a nudge in the comments below ♥️ I'll be forever grateful 😄
