Nora Land of the Leaves

Chapter 1: Aquariuscean

There was a period in time when Nora was guarded and protected by leaves. Guardians that were rumored to appear among humans in different forms. Humans grew curious of Aquariuscean were the Leaves dwell but not an enemy nor a map could show were Aquariuscean was. As time passed, humans began having less belief in them but the Leaves saw this an opportunity to be invisible and successfully guard the humans. This also meant Aquariuscean will not be exploited by humans but be conserved.

Aquariuscean was surrounded by water in which spine like glacier grew like grass. It had evergreen trees that reached the heavens which grew a variety of fruits. Flowers that smiled as the water gracefully sang entering their roots. A castle which stood on a mountain well detailed with gold and rich fruits. It was embroidered with grass were flowers grew and decorated with ancient language. The interior of the castle was made of glass which reflected anybody that entered.

Runaway Girl Series : Tips for 2018

Justin bieber

Voice: you are eager to come back go on enter!

Hey sassy Tacos it is my graysbygrace your very own rainbow shinning like the sun because it is  (everyday bro) beautiful! Namibia is actually receiving rain, that means harvest season will be so successful! Okay, so now it is time to reveal the second tip of the year and it is..

 

Tip # 2 Stop complaining, Be the first

 

I know this feeling! Always complaining how there are less black beauty brands in Namibia. Complain that less people are not sponsoring Artists in Namibia. Complaining that the Namibians do not have their own fashion style to describe them. Complain that.. Complaining that.. Well, stop!  It is a waste of time to complain because you were brought on this world to create, build and explore it. So it is time for you to be the first. Take that risk and stop complaining! It is that time to start taking that first step and be recognize as that designer, artist, writer and etc.  As 2018 is close by, most people want that recognition and yes it will come with a lot of sweat …I am who is in?

Perfect Place

Zine 2

We are shooting Eagles in the sky reaching for abstract moments

Inherited names destined to rot like ashes on the ground

Diverse individuals limited by time continuously delivering faith, love and pain.

Who are we? why are we here?

I skim through the streets and see an old man begging for money

I see a woman selling her body

I see a young generation sleeping on the streets

I hold back my tears and ANGER grows within me.

NEWS FLASH

hundreds die 

injustice shots #blacklivesmatter

young girl kills herself after marriage.

Where is my God? Where is my God?

Girl got dreams but has a barn at 14

Boy loves poker and feeds his pride

Drugs hit teens, yeah that’s all about fame.

you know, they say money buys happiness

let me say it’s just a drug which we inhale

to satisfy our needs and wants.

oh, can you hear mother nature cry!

what have you done?

Stop in the name for peace.

End the hunger name.

build a mountain, Rainbow nation


Our picture for a perfect world is a dream ..okay, it is a goal. I believe problems allow us to grow and build our-self. These problems that we face are a challenges that we need to except. This piece showcases all the problems that are faced within my community and the world. This is the second zine that I have created..I am really sad because the zine is not well presented. I use purple for headings and writing. Any tips??

Namibian Art Vlogger on Youtube!

Issue 2 with love

How is Life?

Hey unicorns it’s me graysbygrace your very rainbow and Happy Friday! There is so much to talk about and yet I feel like everything so not important. Lately I have been changing the format of my blog and trying to find out what best fit on this blog. Yes, Runaway girl series is one of the most interesting posts that a lot of you unicorns like. So, with special love I really want to change the Runaway Girl series into graysbygrace because I really want to continue the magazine format. What do you think unicorns? I also want sassy Taco to be a thing right now because unicorns are everywhere so I really want a special name to identify all of us. Do you agree? Would you join the sassy Taco crew?

Why I have not been blogging?

A lot has been going on from moving to Namibia, new school, exams and University. I am really excited to say that I am Uni- student now..okay maybe not..but lets think positive now! I am still waiting for the results to come out because in Namibia what they do is publish grade 12 and 10 results in the newspaper. I may say all the studying and stress has ended but I mean even if you feel you have put your best there is still that sense behind saying you have not made it. I am nervous but I am positive! If you are reading this and have written your year 12 exams and waiting for your results. A certificate can not explain how extra-ordinary you are. Apart from exams, I have been waiting for my camera to bring the best content and a lot of you guys can see that I have been filming with my computer camera and results are not bad.. I am not really mad(Youtube). But yeah, I have got a camera and plan to bring all of you sassy Tacos the best content. Obviously from great content comes creativity which I have been stressing on in 2017 . Being inspired by shameless Maya and the artists that I have met across the social media platform ..  so, what I have decided to do is work on my short films which I have failed to do because of not having a camera but yeah, I am ready! That is why I decided to start a youtube channel… I mean, Film school was the last option( not even thought about because of how useless it is seen from one person perspective) for University ?.. So I needed another alternative so here we are. Going on, this Friday I am jotting and exploring ..most importantly drawing..drawing!

What are you guys planning on Friday? How was your week? what are planning next week? Who is your celebrity crush? Okay, who watched the new season of KKW? Oh gosh..something random..idk..idk okay…

Check out my Youtube Video and give advice I will appreciate it! oh, comment below if you have a youtube channel

Mood board inspiration

Okay, What is this about now?

Hey unicorns it’s me graysbygrace your very own rainbow. I hope you guys are doing well and enjoying this wonderful Monday. Yes, something new kicked out and I am excited about this. Lately, I have been addicted to YouTube and found two different individuals that inspired me to do this specific ..may I say project. They are Noor (Noor’s place blog) and Areeba (Not your type blog). Yes I am really shook right now because I have been suffering from finding out how I should combine Fantasy, poetry and fashion together. The struggle is real. Okay, Noor and Areeba are twin Pakistan sisters who use their journals to make a mix of poetry and art.  I found on both of their blogs a mood board and I was like well that would be awesome to do plus in future I feel I will do the same thing because my fashion section would be kind of boring (Check out their fashion section).

The inspired mood boards

I gathered 3 old pictures that would work well for this project  and decided to make mood boards.

This brings a Gothic yet fancy style.
