Washi Tape

20180706_124249-01

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.

Watched How to Marry a Millionaire again today, with my mum. I always loved the glasses Pola (Marilyn Monroe) wore in the movie. Oddly enough the bath robe? she wears is also one of my favourites.

First Drawing of 2017

So I’m sure you’ve all noticed by now that I schedule posts. It’s easier for me and I don’t have to worry about my blog becoming a postless void when I’m not drawing or forget to upload photos (especially since I hate WordPress’s app).

So this lady here is the first actual drawing I’ve done in 2017, January 1st no less.

I’m just praying this year isn’t a shitshow like last year was and that I’ll find some new employment.
