Arting at the desk

Last night I had this burst of creativity that kept me arting at my desk for hours.

First I did some more face and then coloured them in with my Cotman studio set:

Now I could say that the bleeding of the black liner was intentional, but unfortunately I had not checked to see if it would bleed. Doesn't matter though, I rather like the effect:

Earlier that day I Leslie had reminded me of the original blogpost about making your own washi-tape, using watercolours and doodling on them. It's so easy, and so much fun. I ended up with lots of new designs in pale colours that will work so well in my art journal.

And then I tried out making my own DIY old school Polaroid pictures, after Crafty Moira's tutorial. I love the look with the tape, although maybe I need to trim my cardstock a little bit:


  1. the pen gives them a messy watercolor effect, ya I like that too.. and you know I like homemade tape.. woot for homemade tapes!! (cuties looking cute as ever)

  2. Aren't they just? They are becoming their own little characters now, so good to see them healthy and happy.

  3. How old are the twins now!? They are SOO CUTE!

  4. In a couple of days they'll be 8 months. Still tiny for their age, but they're doing so well!
