  1. Gah!!! So cute and amazing! I think you said in another post that this is a watercolor sketchbook? That’s so cool, I love that watery watercolor effect! You did a fabulous job here and I love that you kept a border too. Great thinking!

    1. You’re absolutely too kind! I’m pleased and honored that you like my illustration. This is actually Moleskine’s watercolor journal. I LOVE it — it’s perfect for carrying around and sketching ideas on the fly, with minimal pressure to produce “perfect” work. Also the border is actually quasi-unintentional. I use painter’s tape and a piece of cardboard to help the paper stay as flat as possible (since 135 lb paper still buckles a bit with excessive water). If you’re looking to get a journal for yourself, I’ve found them for cheapest through third-party sellers on Amazon. Also, share your work — I’d love to see!

      1. And you are absolutely talented, hun! 🙂

        Oooo, I think I have seen those around, how snazzy! I have one of those larger watercolor sketch pads but I find it doesn’t create that watery light watercolor effect that so many others manage to capture. My smaller sketchbook does that better, and I think my next sketchbook is of good quality that may create that effect or at least better than the larger pads do! It’s the strangest thing.

        That’s very interesting! It creates a cool effect for being somewhat unintentional 😉
        I have a recent watercolor piece I did in my sketchbook, I have to just take a picture of it and upload it, but I’ll see what I can do about getting it up today! 🙂

      2. Hrm, I wonder why you’re not getting the results you want with the sketch pad you’re using. What type are you using? It could be you’re using a weight/texture that doesn’t quite suit the effect you’re after.

        I’m also a fan of the border around paintings. I remember in my work from even just a few months ago, I was trying to manually create borders, without realizing that they’re actually created by whatever’s being used to hold watercolor paper down. Hah!
