Twinsie Tuesday - Franken

Good morning, dear readers!

Today is Twinsie Tuesday again!!

This Twinsie Tuesday edition is all about frankens.  Man, do I ever love frankens!! :D

I would like to apologize in advance for the crappy photos... my cables for the light box are still not with me, so I took these photos at night in my bedroom and kitchen.  :S

This franken was made by my sister, and is called Luster.  I asked her to make me a polish based on the world Luster in the Unicorn Chronicles from Bruce Coville.  I absolutely love those novels, and grew up with the first book in that series.  My wonderful ex bought me the whole set a couple years ago for my birthday, and it makes me so happy!  My sister captured the world perfectly with this polish!!   Lots of silver and purple in this... if only I could have taken better photos!

I am definitely going to have to re-swatch this when I have my light box up and running!  This looks so much more beautiful in real life!

Now to take sparkle to a whole different level...

WHEE!!! :D  This was super fun to do!!  I used about 4 more different frankens for the sparkle and glitter, then added a ton of rhinestones to the tips.  XD

About Me

My Photo

Heyo!  I am the writer behind Art Evolve, a blog about things and stuff, that I update sometimes.  >:D

I have a serious love for books, gaming, and general sci-fi and fantasy things.

I also love music and art, and hope to become a better musician and artist as time goes on.

I just started playing Magic: The Gathering again after a looooong break (11 years!?!), and it is awesome.  I hope to become a better Magic player too, because I'm not that great at it heheheh.

I was introduced to edh last (I think?) month, and it has quickly become a favourite format.

UPDATE: Wow, that was in March of last year!  Time really flies!  Definitely not magnificent at it, but still on the Magic train and much better at it than last year.  XD

OH!  I also do MTG altered art, which I recently started and it is seriously fun and rewarding.  Magic + art practice?  Aw yeah!! :D

What else, what else...  I like video games, and play on both PC and console (PS!!).  I love rpg's and some good shooters, and killing zombies is a plus.

I love chocolate, tea and coffee.  I smoke cigarettes, which is stupid, so don't ever smoke cigarettes because it is stupid.

I also really like food.  Too much so.  Especially crunchy things!  I seriously need to get some bubble tea because it has been way too long.

I love to study but my ADHD makes it a bit difficult (a lot difficult, because remembering things can be kinda rediculous).  I also have obsessive compulsive disorder which sucks.  And anxiety disorders, which suck.

Favourite subjects include: astronomy, nihongo, art, geology, stuff like that.

HAVE AT YOU, KNAVE!  *slaps*
