Doodlewash, Sunhat, Collage, Brush Markers


It was my birthday the other day and one of the gifts I got from my daughter was some new pens which I tried out and these are the results. The pens are Manuscript CalliCreative Duotip Brush Markers. They have a tip each side, I found the thinnest tip hard to use so these drawings have been mainly done with the thick tip. They are very bright colours and maybe they would be better for what they were intended - lettering.

I made a sunhat for my Granddaughter. I had a couple of fat quarters of fabric so I used them. I didn't have enough of one fabric to use all the same fabric but I think they go well together.

I cannot see my Granddaughter because of lockdown so this dog is modelling the hat.

More from the little collage book, mainly gelli printing.
 I used Pebbles chalks on the middle three.

It's Friday so that means it is
