How I use a paper from garbage for art.

I often buying something in the internet and getting a beautiful boxes by post. Very often I use this paper for drawing and for origami.
Experiment with light colors on dark paper is very interesting and you can help a little nature and do not buy  special paper.

You will need a box, scissors, ruler, pencil, acrylic, color pencils (I used red and blue) and pens with black and white inks.

From my box got 4 squares 20x20 cm.

First, I came up with some strange animals and sketched them with pencil on cardboard. Then paint silhouettes with white acrylic paint.

After the acrylic paint has dried you can draw it with black ink (for me it was Liner Faber Castell, waterproof). Figures were monochrome and I added a little color with a red and blue pencils.
But it seemed to me that there were many empty space and I added patterned background for each animal is different.

So, this is what came of it:

I drawn a small set :)

Oktoberfest 2012 or liter beer on breakfast.

It was ma second Oktoberfest here in Munich and again... beer in the morning :)
A lot of people come to the Oktoberfest that's why almost all the tables booked from 5pm. If you want to have a beer (and sitting) then come in the morning to open hours, at 9am.

Sooo many people at 10-11 am.

What interesting and unusual here?
Most of Oktoberfest visitors wears traditional clothes - it looks very beautiful.
If you are here for the first time - try brezel - is a type of baked food.

You can buy a souvenir cake with the some "quotes", it is stored for a long time and you may hang it at the wall.

I skated on this attraction. Very high and fast - no time to see the city from above.

It is how looks the interior of one pavilion.

Bavaria statue beautiful as always.

Photo memory book, all in one place!

I found perfect way for me to archive photos :) I know it's not a new idea, but I've used it for the first time.
Oh, it was so hard to choose just 30 of the hundreds of photos.
There are many sites to make an album, I've used this firm Clixxie-fotobuch, you can upload photos to Facebook and then add to the album. Very easy.

I am very pleased with the result!!! Photos look really cool inside the album, all in one place.
On the first page of the album I wrote a year and where the photos were taken and on the last page, you can add a couple of lines.

It's how the book compared to the size of my hand:

Now my family photos decorating my table :)

I can happily advise Clixxie-fotobuch, as I know now the photo-book can be ordered in Germany and Austria.
They also have a program for the iPhone on itunes.
