iPhone Video Experimenting #vlog #chaiwithsuzy

I've been trying out the video capabilities on my iphone so today's vlog is about iPhone video experimenting.

The settings I experimented with were the time lapse and slow motion. And the birds in my garden obliged.

So grab a cuppa and watch the stars of my vlog today.

I decided to load my video on youtube though still in unlisted mode which allows views if you have the url. A little scary but I thought that a little daring is required.

A sheltered life can be a daring life as well. For all serious daring starts from within.
~ Eudora Welty

In fact sometimes I think opening up yourself to the world is probably one of he most daring things you can do. 

I hope you enjoyed today's vlog. And if you want to know more about it, post your questions in the comments and I'll try to answer them in my next post. 

And as a side note, I hope you've checked your blogs for EU compliance.

The Making Of A #Vlog for #PASCATC0518 #chaiwithsuzy

Vlog02: Today's vlog is about the making of the pick a stick ATC  (artist trading card) challenge for May 2018.

The challenge is hosted monthly by Shel C and Peg Robinson. See youtube for details. 

So grab a cuppa and join me in the making of #PASCATC0518

Some notes on my creation:

  • Done entirely in watercolour.
  • Crush - the clouds were made by crushing a soft tissue and wiping off the paint
  • Layer - the hills were created by layering - I had about 4 layers with the darkest on the horizon
  • Mix - I mixed orange and white to create a coral colour for the lupins and then mixed in a bit of red.
          But I should've used a better quality watercolour paper!

There were some comments from my last vlog on how I made the video and uploaded it so here are some quick notes on that.
  • Then I used Windows Movie Maker on my laptop to edit the video and stitch bits together
  • I don't know about other blogging sites, but blogger has an insert video facility that I used to upload the video. I could also upload to my youtube channel and then embed here but I'm not yet ready for youtube exposure. 
Maybe in the future I will make a video on how I create my vlogs but I hope for now these short notes will do. 

I enjoyed painting and making this video and I hope you enjoyed it too. Join me again next week for another #vlog and #chaiwithsuzy. 

Have an awesome week.

Getting ready for Mother's Day #vlog01 #chaiwithsuzy

I've been wanting to do a vlog for a long time and also something different on my blog. So I thought I would start a new vlog series called "Chai with Suzy"

I'm not sure if this is going to be a niche vlog like arts and crafts but I'll just go with the flow and see how this evolves.

I intend to post a vlog a week but haven't decided on a day yet. Or perhaps I'll coincide the vlog with some other linkups. Don't know, I'll see how I go and what kind of response I get.

And now to the vlog ...

Tomorrow is Mother's Day, and is perfect to showcase my first vlog, "Getting ready for Mother's Day". If you follow me on Instagram Suzy.Ila then you will have seen this already. But I have added some additional bits and pieces. 

So grab a cup of chai or coffee and join me on my vlog.

I love making cards and I enjoyed making this one. The editing may not be so good as I am just learning. The idea is not to be perfect but to showcase the fun I had.

Would love to hear what you thought and if this looks like a good idea. Also let me know what you would be interested in seeing besides my arts and crafts.

And if you vlog, please link up your vlog post so I can drop by and enjoy yours.


Happy Mother's Day. I hope you have an awesome day.
