Sketchbooks – May 2018

I spent most of May using my new liquitex acrylic paint set. I really love all the colours in the collection, I can’t pick a favourite haha !

I used them in my sketchbooks here. The top little sketchbook is a tea journal. I like to keep tea bag packaging from tea bags my pen pals have sent me in here !

The bottom sketchbook is my ideas journal, it’s bits and pieces of things that inspire me .

May 2018

Merrymay

The month that was – There were countless sunny autumn days that were enjoyed, all the plants in the garden were happy to be soaking up the warmth as well ( just look at those delicious oranges ! ). I completed my 100 day painting challenge, there were lots of animals in top hats . Giant ant ornaments and bobbly birds made a new home in the garden. In true Agatha Christie style, Crooked house kept me guessing right till the end with who the killer was & cozy warm winter socks were found at Daiso.

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 🙂
