Smile Create Repeat Review Box 1/4: White and Blue

Hi everyone! I shall be reviewing and making art with Smile Create Repeat art boxes and sharing the process here and on my instagram @surelysimpleblog, @surelysimplechallenge and my new account @surelysimplewords. (A lot of accounts, just keep up with me :P)

Smile Create Repeat is a great art subscription service because of it’s emphasis on fine art supplies. If you are a beginner (or have been around the art scene for a while) and you want to actually learn more about good quality art supplies, I highly recommend buying a monthly subscription.

They say that simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication. Smile Create Repeat certainly delivers sophistication – I really like the way they have structured the box.

It includes a :

step by step tutorial with a demo by Tony Luongo, the founder

Information about the art supplies

A carefully curated set of art supplies

A bonus high quality drawing pencil (you can collect the whole set of pencil grades- 2B, 6B etc by collecting all the boxes!)

You can send your art you make to @smilecreaterepeat and you get a chance to get your art printed and included in a future postcard in each box.

I’m so excited to share the art I made! Let’s look at box 1: which I named white and blue because the colors included were…white and blue. Really smart, I know 😀 Also, I’m working backwards, so I labelled each box- 1,2,3,4. The white and blue box is box 4:D

I enjoyed painting this canvas! I literally took it with me across countries while travelling and painted it whenever I got time. There are a lot of layers because I kept changing it up until I felt it looked just ‘about right’, haha!

Here’s the video process on these houseplants:

These houseplants were so liberating to painting in the sense that I just had to focus on the drawing and allow the colors to just be shades of blue and white. And the coloured pencil made the outlines pop!

I really had a lot of fun with this particular Smile Create Repeat box- and the good thing about it these subscription boxes is that.. there’s no hurry. You can take your own sweet time, and you’ll find inspiration.

Stay tuned- I’ll be reviewing three more Smile Create Repeat boxes this month! Thanks to Tony and Kim for giving me the opportunity!- Aaria
