//how to survive those hot summer days//

why hello there!

Fun fact! It’s summer! As much as I love being able to stay up late and going to the beach, it gets quite hot where I live. This seems like the hottest summer ever in Ohio! Most days have been almost 90 degrees. I am someone who is veeeery sensitive to weather. I tend to overreact a lot… and when it’s hot I feel like I am melting into the ground XD. giphy (3).gif

Since I’m taking college classes (I made a post all about it here ) I haven’t been going outside too much but when I do IT SURE IS HOT. Now if you live in a place that stays mild all year long then that’s awesome! For Ohio, the weather seems just CRAZY all year, each season you don’t really know what to expect. Anyways, if you live somewhere where it gets super hot in summer, I have some tips for you how to survive!

Sometimes the best thing to do is stay indoors. Try rereading your favorite books, binge-watch youtube, find a new fandom to obsess over, write something, animate, draw, try something new! If you’re looking for a new show to watch, try Free Rein or The Legend of Voltron.

ALWAYS HAVE A WATERBOTTLE HANDY

I mean it! Having water at your side not only keeps you hydrated but it makes you feel happier and more energetic too!

Stray away from dark colored clothing! It really helps! Also, try to wear loser clothes, it lets air flow throughout your body easier!

Having a positive attitude not only makes you feel better but it makes the others around you feel great too!

❀Draw with Moi: pastel beans + trying to make stickers❀

draw.png

 

why hello there!

❀greetings and salutations!❀

❀Welcome back to my itsy-bitsy corner of the web! Today I’m going to be doing a DRAW WITH MOI!❀

Let’s GET STARTED❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀

First of all, I’m starting off with a BLANK PAGE. Thankfully Mr. Artists Block didn’t stop by for a visit, but time will tell. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) (sadly I forgot to take a picture of the blank page)

 

So I took out most of my art supplies so I can have literally every shade I needed. I’m using my watercolors, Prismacolor pencils, and my ohuhu markers.

❀LET’S START DRAWING❀

So I’m forcing myself to draw more male beans (adorable male kiddos with fluffy hair to be exact) because I am not really good at drawing males so I just made a page to draw them all. So I’m starting off by making a sketchy circle with my yellow colored pencil.

le messy circle ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) 

 

Now I’m adding what I call guidelines for the face and adding more shape to the face.

a beautiful anime style head

Now I am adding the neck and the shoulders. I am not that good at drawing shoulders, because whenever I draw shoulders, one shoulder is poking out in an awkward position and it just looks weird.

IMG_1481
the shoulder got messed up

So, sadly the shoulders didn’t turn out that good. 😦 But it still is a pretty good drawing I suppose.

Oh dear, don’t cry smol bean!

poor smol bean is crying

ITS OKAY YOUR PERFECT THE WAY YOU ARE! This is why I don’t usually critique my art in front of them, surprisingly, they have feelings too.

IMG_1482

Alright So I drew a shirt, and This is what I call a headshot, I’m not drawing full bodies because that is EXTREMELY HARD. I usually accidentally give them curves because I’m so used to drawing girls.

IMG_1483

SO I GAVE him FLOOFY HAIR!

IMG_1485

BECAUSE HE’s A FLOOFY HAIRED BEAN!!(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

IMG_1489IMG_1488

I kind of messed up the face but that’s okay I guess!

sad

I mean the face is PERFECTLY FINE!!!(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

IMG_1497

So I colored in the shirt with my yellow watercolor.

Sadly the camera’s battery died so I wasn’t able to photograph the rest of my drawings drawing process, BUT YOU CAN STILL ADMIRE THE BEANS because after it was done charging I took some pictures of them.

I gave all of them cat ears because it’s super adorable.

Then I made some stickers! (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

IMG_1506

Basically, I put a bunch of label stickers next to each other and drew a smol bean.

IMG_1515

I colored him in!

IMG_1520

Cut it out with the only scissors I could find -_-

IMG_1521

Put masking tape over it so the paper would be glossy.

IMG_1533

IMG_1541

Last, of all, I decided to draw a bean that wasn’t so pastel.

le.png

Ahem, this is why I don’t draw full body males because I always accidentally add a curve XD.

IMG_1543

so I gave him an oversized black hoodie. (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

♥5 minute Raspberry Smoothie♥

img_5068

heyo Welcome back to my small corner of the web! Today I am going to be sharing how to make an AMAZINGLY delicious smoothie that will give you day a great start! And naturally, boost your energy!

lets get started

 

img_5069

You can always add extra ingredients if you like, but if you want it to turn out the way mine did, then I recommend following the recipe!

ʕ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔʕ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔʕ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʔ•̫͡•ʕ•̫͡•ʔ

First of all, we are going to put the raspberries in the blender, I used half of the bag, you can use more or less, depending on the flavor and texture you want.

IMG_0643

Next, I will add 1/3 of a banana as a natural sweetener. You can add more or less, I recommend adding just a teensy bit or the smoothie will taste more like a banana smoothie than a raspberry smoothie :D!

IMG_0644

Next, I will add a teaspoon of Honey, you can add as much or as less as you want to depend on how sweet you want your smoothie to be! I am also adding a cup of water.

IMG_0646

Now its time for the fun part! BLENDING THE FRUIT TOGETHER!!!!

Remeber to put the cap on! Don’t want to make a mess! You can blend it for as long as you want, depending on how you want the texture to be.

IMG_0648

After blending it for some time it should look like this! When it gets to your desired texture, stop the blender and pour into a mug, jar, or even a SAUCER!

IMG_0650

And there you go! YOU just made a yummy, healthy smoothie! CONGRATULATIONS!

poetry_ rambling_ randomness (1).png

Heya! Welcome back to my tiny corner of the web! I haven’t been posting as much but don’t worry my friends, my blog is NOT dead! I shall be posting a lot more. I am going to be sharing some excerpts from my NaNoWriMo story and some poetry.

Wanting

want to know something,

I want to understand.

I want to take the darkness,

and make it bright again.

I want my every whisper,

to fill up every street.

I want to find the lost,

and help them find,

the unknown future,

they can’t see.

Seeking

When you’re looking for something,

searching with all your heart.

But it stays hidden away.

You can never find it.

Its lost,

forever gone.

It fades away from you,

into the misty air.

Into the deep blue sky.

The lead of my pencil lifts off the paper. Its raining, droplets falling from the sky and splashing onto the window, making everything blurry. I don’t want it to be blurry. I want to see. I want to see the unknown before it fades away…before it’s forever gone.

This is one of my favorite excerpts!

anyways…

Here is another excerpt from my book

What If

When I fall into a dream I often chase the stars. I do what I can not obtain in real life. I wish reality could be more fantastical. I ponder about the things that are impossible. What if I could soar like an eagle? What if I could paint the sky? What if I could hold every star and constellation until I die. What If my aspirations came true? What if every question I ask can be answered the way I want it too.

I have many goals in my life, but the one I want to accomplish the most is to find out who gave me that rock.

But…

There are so many buts. Something is always in the way, blocking me from succeeding. And worst of all, they are all lies. Lies I am telling myself.

I’m not good enough, I am weak, What if I fail? 

Over and over again, each one taking over my brain and preventing me from doing what I love and enjoy. Preventing me from getting to the finish line.

What if I could get to that never-ending finish line…

What if?

♥updates, surprises, and what I got for Christmas♥

Updates.png

il_fullxfull.1076156844_dsphMERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

I am really excited about this post! I have some big news that I can’t wait to share!

Let’s Start off with blog updates!

1Elysian Artiste has hit 111 followers!!!!

Image result for yayyyy gif

I just want to thank you all so much! This means a lot to me and I am really grateful for all of the amazing people I’ve met on WordPress! Thanks so much!

d Stats Are BOOMING!

Elysian Artiste is getting 33 views every two hours, every day. I am not sure if that is a lot or a little but I am still thankful! Elysian Artiste has gone from a few views a day, to 33 views hourly each day, that is amazing!

 

d (1)Starting  Elysian Artiste has helped me find the true me.

I have started many blogs about my various interests, Most of the things I was blogging about, wasn’t really what I truly loved, It was just popular things others were blogging about, such as American Girl Dolls and Beanie Boos. I didn’t get that far and I felt as if I was pretending to truly love those items. I realized that just because other girls wrote about their dolls and got a lot of visitors, comments, likes, etc didn’t mean that was what I should do.  So I started Elysian Artiste and it was one of the best choices I ever made. I learned that being yourself and doing what you love, is better than pretending to be someone else. I posted my stories, art, and photography, because that was me, and that is what I love to do!

big news

My parents let me get a youtube channel! I am super duper excited and I can’t wait!

What I got for Christmas

So I didn’t get a lot of items for Christmas, but my parents gave me more opportunities and privileges.

1 A YOUTUBE CHANNEL

I am so thankful! I have always wanted a youtube channel! Every time I was unboxing something or drawing or something like that I would record myself and talk to my “so-called’ subscribers. Now I finally have one! I am so happy! I have been prepping for this channel for years and I am excited to make it a real channel!

dA WRECK THIS JOURNAL

For countless years, I have been watching people wreck these journals, and I always thought that they were so COOOOOL! It literally was the only thing I watched for a while. After a few months of watching the videos, I kind of stopped because I got interested in some other things but I still wanted one. So in November, I started to look at the videos some more and I knew I really wanted and I thought it was to help me unleash my creative juices, even more, inspire me to think out of the box.

So basically, long story short, I got one! I actually just decorated the cover today and I love it! I am going to be making a series of posts and Videos about the journal and show you my progress!
