Started a new sketchbook (back in July) and finally figured out what I wanted to do on the cover. The trees and sky came out beautifully, but you can see where I gave up, on the road. But that’s okay, because this is just a sketchbook and this was just for fun. Gouache Paint
More gouache painting, this time of some overgrown stone steps. I like the feel of this one, feels bright and fresh with all those happy greens. Also it was a good experiment with painting rocks (I have a hard time drawing, let alone painting rocks.) Gouache
Here we go, another! With a cameo of my thumb. Again, I was very lazy with the door, because my focus was the flowers. Depending on how long this quarantine lasts, I might end up filling this sketchbook with these little paintings. Gouache
Another! And I’m sure you can tell by how poorly done the door is, I wasn’t into it. I really only wanted to paint the leaves and flowers. Gouache
Small painting in one of my sketchbooks, I had an overwhelming urge to work with paint, so I broke out a set of gouache. I did do a few test drawings of other things to get a feel for gouache before I did this, but I really like this one, probably because of all the […]

I did in fact do Day 1, that’s just going to post tomorrow morning. Here’s a little terrarium for Day 2. Really happy with it. Let’s hope I make it through this year! Ink, Water, White Gel Pen.
Last one! The intended targets loved it. My first attempt at a shaker card, I think it turned out well, considering I couldn’t find any 3d foam tape. And the “Noel” is a touch off centre, but it still turned out lovely. Cardstock, Glitter, Watercolours, Ribbon
My apologies for the blurry photo, and for forgetting to post this here. This one was for C, who’s an amazing person, and always gets the most difficult card to make. I struggled with so many different ways to make the “Season’s greetings” writing, only to settle on 3D glue with black holo glitter dusted […]
