These Adorable Teacup Gardens Could Be Your Next Quarantine Project (23 Pics)

For those of us living in apartments, having a garden sounds like some sort of a dream. But what if I told you that you don’t need a home with a backyard to have a nice garden? Apparently, sometimes all you need is a teacup and a little creativity.

People are sharing photos of their miniature gardens that fit inside teacups and they’re absolutely adorable. Creating these tiny gardens could be a great way to pass time while you’re stuck in quarantine – especially if you don’t have the patience to grow a bonsai. So grab an old teacup, pick up some moss and a handful of dirt the next time you’re walking the dog and check out some inspiration in the gallery below!

One day, this guy just kind of figured – “I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?” – and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that’s trending on the web. Some things that always pique his interest are old technologies, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness. So if you find something that’s too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?

Artist Stuck In Quarantine Unleashes Her Creativity On Her House And Paints All Over The Walls

We all have our ways of dealing with the pandemic. French artist Nathalie Lété, for example, is getting through these difficult times by painting. But what makes Nathalie’s coping mechanism unique is the canvas she chose for it — her country house. The doors, walls, staircases, and furniture—Nathalie is transforming all of it into a botanical wonderland.

“I bought Maison Atelier Suzanne three years ago,” Lété told Bored Panda. “It’s an hour away from Paris, in a little village next to the Loing river and the forest of Fontainebleau.”

Nathalie’s idea for the house was to paint it white, like a blank page, and only then cover it with intricate floral patterns. “The first year we lived in a totally white house,” Lété explained. “I then started painting all of the details whenever I had the time. Now, due to the confinement, I’ve had two full months to focus on painting the walls.”

However, Nathalie didn’t stop there. “[I want] to not only do the walls, but also paint all the furniture, lamps, tiles, rugs, cushions, and other fabrics. To create a nest that’s totally filled with my art.”

Nathalie draws a lot of inspiration from folk art, especially the gorgeous houses in Zalipie, Poland, as well as the house of Maud Lewis and Charleston’s houses in England. “I also like the streets in the souk of Tangier, Morroco, which are painted by young teenagers simply to embellish the area.”

“I like the idea of embellishing very simple places and things, like a room or its furniture, just by adding a bit of color and naive motives,” Lété added.

The artist never decides what she will paint in advance; Nathalie enjoys the freedom that comes with spontaneity. “I do the work step by step, corner after corner, wall after wall. By doing so, I have the time to learn from my mistakes and avoid them later on the project,” she said, explaining that this approach grows her confidence in the whole process. “Even if I did something that I no longer like, there are no plans to rush, no stress, I can cover it the next day by simply painting over.”

“Just try to let your inner child guide you and forget perfectionism,” Nathalie advised everyone who’s thinking about trying something like this. “Paint simple flowers if you don’t consider yourself very talented, the most important thing is to allow yourself to feel pleasure from doing it.”

The artist uses acrylic paint to decorate her house. “Personally, I like working in naïve style, but some days I simply paint a picture that I saw in some book. It’s a joyful, mixed pattern,” Lété added. “My favorite colors are green and pink, and I often use these two in my palette.”

“After I painted my staircase, I realized just how much I enjoy going up and down the house all the time. Seeing all the colorful motifs all day brings me a lot of happiness! Every step inside shows dreamy, candy-color flowers blooming on the doors, walls, staircases, and furniture—as though it’s a cottage from a fairytale.”

Here Are My 30 Best Optical Illusions That Were Made Without Any Editing Software

I’m Tiago Silva (@umtiago on Instagram), and I see the world through my perspective by playing with optical illusion, shadows, perspective, colors by using a lot of creativity. None of the photos used montage or modification software.

I always thought that taking pictures of sunsets and meals are just too dull, so I started creating something new. Every photo is a challenge where I always try to see something unusual. Something that no one has ever seen before. And that could happen everywhere. Most of the time it’s very spontaneous: when I’m walking through the city, traveling or at the beach. During the shoot, people always stare at me, probably thinking “this guy is crazy,” after seeing me jumping 4744239 times, but when I show them the photo, they realize why I was doing all that and laugh, start following me and sometimes even trying to take the same picture. Inspiration could come from everywhere: a graffiti, a landmark, an object, a shadow, or even a piece of cloth. I never overthink about the future because I never know what photo I’ll take next, but I would love to give people some thoughts about how to see and explore the world differently.

Artist Proves There Are No Limits To Creativity By Creating 35 Different Illustrations Using One Base

We are all familiar with pin-up pictures, especially with the recent revival of all things vintage and retro. While most of the world associates pin-ups with such ladies like Page and Monroe, it is undeniable that a big part of the pin-up world consists of various suggestive illustrations. So when artist David Jablow was given a vintage novelty doodle pad, he knew there’s plenty of scenarios he could put the seemingly nude, under-drawn lady in. And he got to work!

Bored Panda reached out to David Jablow for a short interview and he responded with some information about himself and his art. “I’ve been drawing my entire life,” Jablow said, “it’s always been one of my favorite activities, specifically cartooning and illustration.” The artist who lives and works in Philadelphia, PA also revealed that he’s been working on his vintage doodle series for the past 10 years and has over a hundred as of now (and no plan on stopping).

Here is the original piece Jablow started with to create his art

“The half-drawn pin-up girls serve as the inspiration..I just imagine what they could be doing and then figure out how to create the world around them,” Jablow detailed his creative process. “Every one is a new but familiar challenge.” The “Do It Yourself Doodler” series was the very beginning of his artistic journey into the world of doodling over pieces and the artist’s creative journey into placing soulless templates into colorful and detailed worlds.

When asked how did people respond to his artwork, Jablow said that the general response was great and contributed his popularity to social media and viral content sites. “I also exhibit the original pieces in galleries,” he added.
