Blogmas day 9

Here is my actual piece of art for the Scrawlr challenge 'Born from bubbles' (yesterdays post was a practice piece). I really love this guy and I think using the blue metallic pen on this piece as well would have ruined it. They say you have to use only the supplies in the box, doesn't mean you have to use them all.  Hey look I put the right date this time lol. 

Did some more wrapping of presents and I started on the labels but I don't really like what I made so back to the drawing board.

Blogmas day 8

Today I started with finishing the treasure dragon from yesterday and its now listed in the shop. I also played around with the Spectrum Noir Artliner pens from the Scrawlrbox and the gold pen. The prompt is 'Born from bubbles' so I thought about a fish and I have been wanted to draw a Koi in a tattoo style for a while and thought why not combine the two.

(Yes I realize I dated it wrong lmao, honestly thought it was the 7th)

Also we put up the Christmas trees today and yesterday so some slightly more festive photos will be appearing in the next few blogs.

Blogmas day 7

After my last black fine liner blog post I discovered I had missed two. 

Chameleon Detail pen, I got this pen from a Scrawlrbox with Chameleon pens

Faber Castell is a pen I have used years ago but has dried out since so this one is a new one.

Artline Ergoline came with October's Scrawlbox along with the ZIg writer and whilst I was unimpressed with how they worked on the supplied paper they do work quite well on other surfaces.

And from November's Scrawlrbox is the Spectrum Noir Artliner pen, haven't really had much time to play around with these yet.

Blogmas day 6

 Post day! I've been waiting (not) patiently for the post man today. The dice shop had a mixed bag of discontinued dice and me being a sucker for dice and the unknown I bought one, he he.

There's quite a few lol 

And I needed a resupply of some metallic clay and deco gel for my treasure dragons, and I found this liquid gold gel from Sculpey which I want to try out for the coins. Good lord trying to get hold of metallic clay this time of year is a challenge, damn you all for making Christmas decorations. 

And a little treat to myself:

Not drawn anything with these yet, just taken the grey out and tried it, excited to draw something with these when I get a chance. 

Blogmas Day 5

Spent today making loads of little coins for more treasure dragons:

Blogmas day 4

Been wrapping presents today! Orders have started to arrive and I like to get them wrapped asap. Even though we don't have the tree up yet lol 

I haven't decided on what to do for labels yet.... 

Also I played around with one of the pine cones from yesterday:
Yay glitter! there is glitter all over my desk now, but then it is Christmas, isn't there glitter everywhere anyway?!

Blogmas day 3

Today my mother and I went out on an adventure for pine cones as I want to make place names with them for our Christmas dinner.  Apparently it is not the season for pine cones either that or everyone else has had the same idea lol. We also got some Holly and some Ivy for some crafty ideas.

Blogmas day 2

So today I went Christmas present shopping with my mother but I have no piccys to show so here is a quick sketch of a dragon with a Christmas pudding...

Also we're getting some nice stuff to decorate the table for Christmas dinner this year as its my sister-in-law's first western Christmas (she is Chinese) and the Chinese like taking photos of everything for Wechat, so we want the table to look selfie ready lol.

Blogmas day 1

Ok so for the next 24 (or maybe longer) days I will attempt to update this blog everyday with either Chrsitmassy stuff or regular day to day stuff. 

First off my order arrived a day ago and for the first time ever I have actually got Christmas Cards printed! I was spurred on when they sent out a 30% off code during black Friday. So that Saturday I was frantically painting the image/idea I have had floating around in my head for a few months.

I also took advantage of the code to reorder some more business cards and to also include a new image, the blue treasure dragon. Stickers!!! love stickers, this time the little book of stickers is just full of the treasure dragon images, because why not.

This is the image: 

and here are the cards:

Love 'em! Also don't know why my camera decided to make all these images really blue :( think it might be this time of year and the lack of sunlight.
