There's this technique that I really like using. It's called "Ink Smooshing" and it makes this watercolor, spatter effect. It's very easy to do and it needs ZERO creativity! Probably why this technique appealed to me so much.
The name came from the action that you do in order to achieve the watercolor effect, which is "smooshing" ink on paper. Personally I really like the word "smoosh" and "smooshing". It makes it sound like it's a really fun thing to do; and it is.
Something to note though is that the pattern will be pretty random and cannot be replicated since how the ink is smooshed on the paper unpredictable. You can exercise some sort of control on which colors to use, how much ink gets on the paper, and where the colors go.
I also noticed that most of the time when I'm doing this, my initial reaction is it looks ugly, but as I put in more colors and splatters, I see it get prettier. There are instances when I really di…
Last March 24 was the first Creative Journals and Planners PH (CPJPH) meet up. It was held in Bo's Coffee, Eastwood City.
As a small shop starting out, I wanted to try doing a pop-up booth in a small event so I sponsored lootbag content and snagged me a selling spot for the event.
I wasn't able to take a photo of my setup but I did learn a lot from this experience on how I can make my setup better.
What I did though was make sure I had varying height displays to make it more appealing, I also had a tall-ish chalkboard sign.
It was a big help that I was in the table where the watercolor workshop was done! I was able to absorb what was being discussed and got to try doing some leaves using that magical triangle brush! You can see my chalkboard display too! Lol!
Being in the central table is super fun! Aside from getting to participate in the workshop, I chatted up a lot of people! It's a big win for me because I can't move around so much with my big, pregnant belly, an…
Last Sunday, during afternoon snack, Papa, my baby brother and I talking. I guess it had been a favorite past time of ours to bully my baby brother and rile him about his weight and his habits, because we eventually started bullying him. (Yes, Papa included). I dunno how we arrived at how my baby brother was like Nobita in Doraemon, but we did. Papa said that my baby brother's very much like Nobita who always regrets things. Papa said that at the start of the story, there's always something that Nobita has to do. As the story progresses, Nobita just carries on with what he wants and not what he's supposed to do, and when he's already in a tight spot, he'll realize his mistake and then turn to Doraemon for help. He'll borrow something or beg Doraemon to do something so that he can get out of the mess, or to fix the mess. Tsk tsk tsk. Nobita full of regrets and then using Doraemon to solve the problem. How very childish.
