In case you’re new here, Craftspace Weekend is a blog series I share what I have made on my weekend or how is my creative space. Since I usually work on my creative project on my weekend so I call it “Craftspace Weekend”. I have started Craftspace Weekend since april but I have not updated on English blog much.You can check out the past Craftspace Weekend in Thai here.
I took day off on Friday to go to Nakhon Pathom and sign paper for my brother. I didn’t want to go at first but then I realised that instead of doing a business and go back home, I should visit popular place and explore this city a little bit so it’s one day trip with my mom not business trip.
We went to Phra Pathom Chedi, the tallest stupa in Thailand. We found my mom’s favourite flower. I don’t know how it called in English, I think it’s called Gardenia. However, we called Dok Put (ดอกพุด) in Thai.
While taking photos, I found this cat.
On Saturday, I feel excited with Acrylic color I just bought so I cut plastic bag and use it as a canvas. Here is my first abstract art I did. I show it to my boyfriend and his said “What’s that? You did a mess again?” I feel so bad with his word but I learnt that although my work is not beautiful at all, I still enjoy painting and making art. Most important I still love my work.
On Sunday, I was thinking about what to do with my work. I did some research and found a lot of tutorial on how to fuse plastic. I followed instruction and here is what I got! I think I will use it as a notebook cover so I sewed and cut it to A5. Unfortunately, I didn’t have enough paper it make notebook but I will do it for sure. I may use it as travel journal for Phuket trip next week or art journal this month.
I also test fabric colour to paint this bag. I was not sure what to draw so I just painted something as it’s art journal.
I feel relax and peaceful so much when I paint. I think now I know why people said that art is therapy.
