Come, let’s journal about all the nice things I got for my birthday!
On my birthday, back in April, I got a few pens and some money to buy art supplies for. I decided to invest in my first “set” of metallic watercolors in loose pans, from the brand Coliro Pearlcolors. I got pink and green (because that is one of my favorite color combinations) and a gold, just to try it out.
In today’s video, I’m creating a spread in my Randomosity TN, to try out all the new materials I got. Enjoy!
Video: Birthday Journaling
Journaling in a Traveler’s Notebook to document my birthday pens and new watercolors, five different colors of Coliro Pearlcolors. Documenting what I got at the same time as I test them out, creating an Evidence page.
Grab a coffee or your own journal and let’s investigate how good these colors are together!
Birthday roses and the stuff I got for my birthday this year:
The book is about knitting with more than one color in a very colorful and happy way called hŲnsestrik here. This book is so beautiful and full of fun knits to try out, from hats and scarfs to sweaters and caps.
Also, it’s coming out in English next month, so keep a look out for it if you too want to knit happy rows of different patterns. It is going to be called† Alterknit Rebellion – Radical patterns for creative knitters by Anna Bauer. So yummy, and a fun title in English, right?
Here’s the finished spread that I created in the video, using wrapping paper, stickers, gift cards and the pens and paints I got for my birthday:
I’m planning to have a birthday next year too, so stay tuned. Who knows what I’ll get then? ;-)
