A little Watercolour pink flowers


Here’s a little water colour flower painting of mine.

I created this using Pink Ecoline water colour ink for the flowers and black for the flower centres.

The light coloured flower petals around the background were created using the water I had been cleaning my brush in 😁

The pink ink had made the water a pink wash and so I used a little water to create the background petals. πŸ˜„

The paper used is cold pressed Watercolour paper, in white.

I enjoyed doing this piece as I did the flowers free hand and enjoyed playing with the ink and water to create depth to the petals.

More flower doodles – I just enjoy doing them


I know I’ve posted a few of my flower doodles on my blog already but I really enjoy doing them so thought I’d share just one more πŸ˜‰ 

This piece was created on a crimson coloured card, from the depths of my craft draw, using a Uniball signo broad pen in White. 

Thought I would throw in a little faux calligraphy for good measure too πŸ™‚

This will be turned into a card at some point so I will try to use it for a how-to.

Even though it’s a tried and tested doodle for me I thought I would mix it up using white on a base colour rather than my go-to black on white card.

I really like the effect, it may be used again πŸ˜‚

Thank you for reading and happy crafting!

Let the Christmas doodles commence

It went a bit wobbly πŸ˜„ but I quite like this wreath doodle. 

I used a Uniball 0.05 fineliner for the holly outline, a crimson Artline 200 4.0 fineliner for the berries and lettering and a Faber & Castel grey brush pen to colour in the holly leaves.

Have you started your Christmas crafting yet?

Happy crafting!

A different type of floral doodleΒ 


I’ve been doodling again, taking my lead from Eloise Renouf’s book -Draw 500 things from nature.

I do enjoy drawing flowers, I even thought I’d try a different coloured pen 😁

Adding a bit of faux calligraphy, I’m not sure if this will make it to a birthday card or not but I do enjoy doodling, to experiment and practice different flowers to see what works.

I will post a how to if this does turn into a card.

I need to start doodling Christmas things don’t I πŸ˜„ 

Thank you for reading and happy crafting!
