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.

Little houses & animals – Sketch

Lately I’ve really enjoyed drawing animals and cute little houses.
I feel that you can really let your imagination run wild when you are drawing little houses. There are no rules, you can have as many windows and decorations as you like .
I also enjoy drawing animals, so I can dress them up in funky clothes 🙂

Park Days – Sketch

I bought this lovely new sketchbook from miniso and started it by sketching this fun little
scene. I’m not used to drawing entire scenes, usually just focus on one particular object
or animal. Though I think I’m going to do more sketches like this. It’s a great way to brainstorm new ideas and just draw whatever comes to mind.

New Zine – The happy sketchbook

Ahoy there ! This is the latest listing for my etsy shop.

It is a zine filled with eight delightful artworks
and complementing pages from my happy little moleskine sketchbook.
I painted and chopped up bits of patterned paper to
create this sketchbook.
I hope that when you are looking at these pages you will feel
just as happy as I did when I created them.

The corners are rounded so it gives the zine a moleskine feel.
