Micador aqua painters

I always try a new paint pen when I see one. Actually any pen really… I mean I’m completely addicted to buying pens, I went away for a few days an ended up buying 11 new pens haha ! Who does that ?! Any way this was created with Micador aqua painters ( spring collection) . They’re really good paint pens !!
I can’t wait to try all the colours.

Hand painted notebooks

I recently bought some liquitex acrylic paint.
I’ve since discovered that it is perfect to use for decorating notebooks.
On the first notebook I painted a bunny. I’m going to give this to one of my pen pals for Easter.
On the second I painted a floral design.
I plan on filling this notebook with lots of patterns & illustration ideas.

New paint !

I bought a lovely new acrylic paint set. I gave it a whirl painting this flamingo and I love it, there are so many bright colours ! I’ve been doing a 100 day painting challenge on instagram using gouache but I’m about to mix it up at day 50 and use acrylic for 50 – 100. Can’t wait !

Hand painted envelopes

Since January 2015 I have been sending letters to pen pals all over the world !
It is the best hobby as it allows you to be creative with paper and also make friends
with people by writing letters to them. I love coming up with new ideas of what to send
my friends in the mail.
I thought it might look nice if I painted some envelopes with gouache .
Here are the results 🙂
