One Week of Daily Videos

Last week I challenged myself to record, edit and post a video on YouTube every day for a week. It was hard, but I did it! Why?

Art Journalling 101 – Creatures 2

For my next art journalling adventure I created another spread using Bybun’s creatures class. This spread uses white creatures instead of black. I took the dedication on the first page of the book (For Dad, who enjoyed travelling the world but was always happiest coming home to London) and tried to create a theme inspired by travel and home. Here are some (slightly blurry) images…

Art. Life. Snacks. March Favourites!

March was a pretty chill month. I spent the whole month working from home – which basically meant PJs and unlimited snacks! We also got a long weekend at the end of the month for Easter which is always appreciated! Llamas I’ve mentioned before that I’m pretty obsessed with llamas. We found ourselves in a very strange store last weekend that sold all kinds of…
