The Girl Upstairs Artwork Exhibit // art by moi

Hey guys, and welcome to the first-ever artwork exhibit of The Girl Upstairs! (soon to be my new blog…mwahahahaha)

*ahem* Ever since I became a pen pal, my interest in artwork has really peaked. And let me tell you, my pen pal is an extremely good artist, and has really inspired me to pursue more artwork.
I’ve collected some artwork I’ve made over the past several months and am here to show all of you guys! πŸ˜€

Let’s begin! πŸ˜€


ignore this awful featured image…it just wasn’t workin’ for me. πŸ˜›


First off, let’s look at some regular, “misc” artwork. πŸ˜‰


For some reason this photo turned out a little blurry when I cropped it, but I painted a close-up of a sunflower for an art class. The art class was fun and this was one of my few successes. XD


Sorry, I just love this one sooooo much! I painted this with my BFF Harper last summer at her house and I LOOOVE how it turned out! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€


I painted this one at another art class, and was very pleased with the results! The photo didn’t quite turn out right, but you can kinda get the idea. πŸ˜‰


This was was also fun! can you find the unicorn? XD


In the art class that we made the sunflower in, we also did self-portrait pop art. It took forever but was really fun! (And also ignore the un-finished hair…my sharpie ran out. XD )
Next up, we have someΒ envelope art!

This was my first ever envelope I made, and I think it turned out pretty good! The dots took a while, but it was fun. πŸ™‚

This one was okay… πŸ˜›

This was really fun to make! I enjoyed making it and thought it turned out great. πŸ™‚

AHH I LOVE THIS ONE. ( XD ) I just LOVE how it turned out! πŸ˜€


And last but not least…a bird one! This one wasΒ very fun to make and I absolutelyΒ loved how it turned out – it’s my favorite so far! Β πŸ˜€


This next one isn’t envelope art, but LOVE IT SO MUCH andΒ had to save it until the end. πŸ˜‰


I mean LOOK GUYS IT’S HAMILTON LOGOS!!! 😱 *points wildly*

These, by far, were the absolutely favorite thing I may this year. I made the regular logo at Harper’s house (when I made the waterfall), and I decided to make Angelica, Eliza, and Peggy for my friend Eden’s birthday, and good ‘ol George for her brother and my BFF, Owen. πŸ™‚
DIDN’T THEY TURN OUT GREAT!!! *freaks out* okay I better just stop now


Did you enjoy my art showcase?
Which “masterpiece” was your favorite?
Do you enjoy art? What do you like to make?

Before I sign off, I’d like to add a little bit of info about my new blog, because I’m sure a lot of you are dying in agony. XD I’ll be doing an official post soon, but I am working on creating a paid, more-professional-platform-hosted blog. I’d been pondering this for a while, but my dad prompted me to start the blog and be able to learn coding, design, etc. on a more professional level.

Anyway, I’m really excited and can’t wait for you guys to see the finished product! And in case you’re wondering, it will be a lot like this blog – just a different URL, using my real name, and jam-packed with some other awesome content! πŸ˜€ Plus, I’m planning a super-fun way forΒ you guys to get involved, so stay tuned! πŸ˜€

Does this sound exciting to you? Any ideas or feedback of yours is greatly appreciated. πŸ™‚

  1. I’m so excited to read your new blog! When will it be up and running? Those Hamilton envelopes are AMAZING! How did you do the silhouettes? The only thing with silhouettes I ever did was Peter Pan, Wendy and her brother flying over London. It ended up looking pretty cool, but took so long!

  2. AHHHH THE HAMILTON THINGIES ARE SO HAMILTON-Y CHARIS I LOVE THEM. and your new blog is beautifullll!! I freaking love it HALP. *flails* Self-hosting sounds great, but it’s a bit pricey, so for now I’m planning so stay with Blogger, since you can still edit the code and customize a bought or downloaded template. Bc #broke. XDD Anyway — great post! I loved seeing your artwork! (ALSO IMMA SCREAM REAL QUICK ABT THOSE HAMILTON THINGS AGAIN. AHHHH. KAY, SCREAM OVER. *leaves awkwardly*)

    I’m a fellow writer (who wishes she was good at art =)), and I’m new to blogging. I’m very impressed by your blog, and was wondering if you had any tips for newbie bloggers.
