I saw this done by an artist on Instagram, and I wanted to try it.
I ordered some really pretty washi tapes from eBay, and went to town, the one above is my third attempt, and I think it looks the best so far, the two below are my first two attempts.
I love this method for adding patterns, like what you’d find on clothing. I have yet to do
a final looking piece to see how it would all look finished, but with these test runs, I’d say I have a pretty good chance of a really nice effect.
I used the Slice knife to help me cut the tape into the right shapes. I did find the ballpoint pen I used did not write well over the tape, so I’m curious to see how my acrylic ink would work over it.
Don’t be surprised if you see more patterned washi tape in my pieces, it’s really easy to work with.

Quick sketch, used a reference from my People & Faces board on Pinterest.
Purple Pencil, and Pink Pencil.
Attempted one of those adventure things, it was supposed to be darker and spookier, but my love of bright, vibrant colours betrayed me.

I miss having long hair, I shouldn’t have cut it back in December.
It’s been over a month since I last posted. I want to say I’ll try to post more frequently, but if I’m being honest I will more likely disappear into the void again.
Avocados make me think of summer, even though I eat them year round, they feel distinctly summer-y, and I’m just praying winter is over and done.

…with drawing big hair. I feel like most of the doodles I do to de-stress are cute ladies with big hairdos. Not that this is a complaint, I love drawing hair.
