A rose in Polychromos 

This piece is made using Faber-Castell Polychromos in my art journal! These pencils are oil-based and are extremely soft and easy to blend. I used Monalisa thinner for blending different shades. I just love how these pencils feel. I’m still exploring them and will post some new work as soon as I am done! ­čÖé


Ice cube popsicles – Day 85 of #100HappyDays

´╗┐´╗┐´╗┐Ice cube popsicles, a perfect way to cool down this Summer! 

I remember my Mum making this when we were kids. We loved them so much that we would finish all of them in one day. They are refreshing and are quick and easy to make!

Just take your favourite syrup/crush. Add some water to dilute it. Pour in the ice tray and freeze.

´╗┐´╗┐The ice cube popsicles I made today are rose flavored. You can even use fresh fruits and juices instead of artificial flavours. I think watermelons, lemons and oranges would be refreshing.

Add these cubes to plain water, or a drink, or to your lemonade or just put in a toothpick and enjoy it as a popsicle. Kids will love it for sure! And the parents too ­čÖé

A tip: Sprinkle some rock salt to give the taste a little twist!

Try it out!
