More dabbling

today I have been getting used to using different brushes...


and learning about colour washes.


I have had some nice gifts recently. From my neighbour boxes of chocolates and biscuits and flowers and from Anne this really pretty heart crochet bunting to match my new coffee colour scheme in the bedroom(thankyou ever so much Anne), decorating still in progress!

  4. Use masking tape to tape the sheet of paper to a board, along all the edges. Then wet the paper. Then let it dry. Then use it!

    Your neighbor looks like another cousin to my guy Aloysius.
