How to Paint a Frozen Lake (One Step!!) – Watercolor

Hey! Today I’m going to show you how to make a painting of a frozen lake! This is going to be a short post because it is a one-step painting. 🙂

You’ll need:

1 piece of paper

1 palette

3 brushes

These are the colors that I used:


Ultramarine blue

Sap green

1: Mix some of the blue and white together. Lightly paint it over the paper. It doesn’t have to be even. Next, paint green spots to make it look like there are some plants under the ice. Last, paint white over the green and blue to make it look frozen (mine doesn’t look like it’s frozen, but whatever… At least I tried!) :

Movie Review: A Wrinkle in Time

Hey guys! Yesterday I watched A Wrinkle in Time, and I am surprised and VERY disappointed. P.S. If you want to watch it and don’t want any spoilers, then don’t read any further… Have a good day! For those of you who have read the book, you do not need to read the next 3 paragraphs. 🙂

I read the book about it when I was about 7 (I think, I don’t remember) for school, and I loved it. It is about a girl named Meg Murry. Her parents are scientists, and they are GENIUSES. Her dad goes missing for 4 years, and no one knows why. Then, a woman dressed in rags named Mrs. Whatsit comes to her house at night, and tells her mother that there is such a thing as a tesseract.

The next day that she is walking with her brother, Charles Wallace (Remember that he has BLUE EYES) (she has twin siblings, too), and her dog, Fortinbras, she meets Calvin O’Keefe (he is the third of 11 kids), who is a 14 year old in 11th grade. Charles Wallace leads them into an abandoned house, where they meet Mrs. Who. After they leave, they invite Calvin to their house, and they take another walk, and that’s where they meet Mrs. Which.

Long story short, they Tesser to find Meg’s dad, who is in Camazotz, where The It is… They get him, leave Charles Wallace, and then Meg comes back for him, and they get away from “The Black Thing” (Which is The It).

This is what the movie did:

The beginning starts okay-ish… Mrs. Whatsit comes to their house and tells their mom that there’s such a thing as a Tesseract, and then she leaves. One problem though…..

There are no TWINS!!!!!!!!

They are supposed to be mentioned, but they aren’t! And, Charles Wallace is adopted in the movie! AND, Charles Wallace is supposed to have BLUE EYES (Also, he’s not Asian in the book)!


It gets WORSE.

In the book, they Tesser to a 2-dimensional planet, and they skip that in the movie! Then, they don’t add the fact that Mrs. Whatsit is a STAR!

meg murry

And the Happy Medium part is all wrong, and Calvin’s family is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT (the movie made it seem like he was an only child),Also, They skip Aunt Beast!!!! And they add a part that they have to get over a wall which doesn’t happen in the book!



I could go on and on, but I’m not, because I have friends coming over soon to make costumes for a play that we’re in, so, to wrap this up, IF YOU BECOME A MOVIE DIRECTOR AND DO A MOVIE BASED ON A BOOK, READ THE BOOK FIRST. Thank you for reading this, and I hope you have a good rest of your day.

How to Write Calligraphy – VERY EASY!

Hi guys! Today, I’m going to show you how to write calligraphy (it isn’t an actual version from my book thingy, I kind of mixed up some way to write together, but it’s kind of cool… Not too fancy)!

All you need is a calligraphy set with ink and an ink pen (the ink pen is different than the ones you usually use) and a piece of paper.

Step 1: Take your pen and tap it onto a piece of paper (the kit I got had some, but I am using lined paper on a notebook) lightly so that the ink will flow. Then hold it at an angle, like so:


Step 2: Write your name or your blog name with your normal handwriting (P.S. My ink looks gray because I had to unclog my pen and it didn’t dry that well… I’m gonna let it dry for a little while :)) :

Step 3: On the line below, write it again as fancy as you can:

WIN_20180221_10_37_37_Pro (2).jpg

Step 4: Practice writing curves on the bottom of the letters (sorry it’s blurry, I don’t have the best camera on my computer):


That is just one of the many ways you can write in calligraphy, and I don’t even know all of them! I just know this and one other “style” (that one is a real one, not one that is a mix like the one I showed you) which I don’t like the other one, so I’m just going to show you this one.

Thank you for looking at my post! I hope you liked it! Have a great rest of your day!

It’s really funny and if you haven’t watched it, you need to! Anyway, we watched it last night, and I decided to show you how to draw her! This is what she looks like:

1 Brown pencil

1 dark brown pencil

1 Green pencil

9: Color in the hair (also brown, but not as soft as with the skin… her hair is darker). Make sure that you color it in wavy lines so it looks like she has loose curls:


10: Color the eyes (with the brown and darken the pupil and eyelashes with the black pencil) and the lips (with the brown and the pink lightly):


11: Color in the necklace with the blues, the green and the brown:


12: Color in the background:


You’re done!
