This is what I have been working on in the last week, A watercolour commission of my friend's dog Oscar. A4 hot pressed Arches watercolour paper and Winsor and Newton artists watercolour paints and some white Gouache. I also realised that its been many months since I have done any painting, maybe I should make it my new years resolution to paint more, maybe a little painting each day like Inktober.
And I've been playing with fimo again, following this tutorial for Faux leather tags. So my Christmas presents this year are going to have these tags.

Some Air Drying clay (whatever colour you want the decorations to be)
A rolling pin
A selection of cookie cutters
An easy to clean surface, as its going to get messy! maybe some newspaper as well
And a bowl of water to rehydrate the clay if it starts drying out
Maybe a small file
Some pretty ribbon or string to hang the decorations with.
