Digital sketch

Well, I had planned to write another type of post next, but I have been sick since the weekend so I haven't had the energy. So instead I thought I would share this girl I made in September 2013 in Photoshop CC.

I really want to get more into digital painting, and I bought myself a new tablet last year (planning to write a review sometime) so I shouldn't have an excuse anymore. Still I find it very hard to actually finish projects. Oh well, I guess I will have to try a little harder.

Thanks for looking!

Some of the handpainted pouches from 2013

Tabby Cat, SOLD.
Here are some photos of the pouches/pencil cases I made last year. They are all drawn with fabric pens on unbleached cotton. They also have some touches with fabric paints. I also added some details with a white fabric pen.
To spice things up, I bought some colored zippers last year to add some touch to them.

The size for the pouches/cases is around 19cm x 8,5cm (about 7.5" x 3.3"). And will hold a couple of larger marker pens in them, but of course they will hold any thing you'd like. I know a lady who bought a pouch to keep her crochet needles in.

Reaching For The Blue Heartflowers, SOLD.

Birds In The Sky, SOLD.

Finding A Bird Creature In The Woods, SOLD.

Standing Among The Pink Heartflowers , SOLD.

Under The Cherry Blossom, SOLD.
White Squirrel Monster, SOLD.

Another Blue Butterfly In The Sky, available in the shop.

Take a look in my Etsy shop for others like these.

The year of the ACEOs

For me, 2013 turned out to be the year when I really got into making ACEOs! I especially fell in love with making them with watercolor pencils and a water brush.
Often I just go right in with the watercolor pencils without sketching beforehand, sometimes with an idea in mind, but a good many of the one I made so far I have just been winging it.

In total I have made 138 finished ACEOs in 2013, and a couple more that didn't make the cut.
So even if I was a very bad blogger last year, I was rather productive.

You will find some of these ACEOs in my Etsy store, and right now I offering a discount that you can learn more about here.


ACEO stands for Art Cards, Editions and Originals and can be created in any material and technique as long as it is in the size 2,5 x 3,5 inches (6,3 cm x 8,8 cm). You can find out more about it here.
