It has been beautiful weather all week, so at the weekend I popped down to the beach and collected some lovely round pebbles to turn into miniature works of art! All of these are featured on Etsy.

|I love you|
I drew out all of the designs first on watercolor paper. Firstly in pencil, then in fine line waterproof pen.
Painting is by far the most time consuming stage, there are some very teeny weeny details to paint with a very fine brush!
I then cut out the picture squares with a craft knife. Here are the finished paintings.
So far I have only completed one card which I needed for this weekend! Eventually they will all end up mounted like this.
I've had another go at sketchnoting which I talked about in my last post here. This time I decided to make notes on a talk called 'How to make stress your friend' by psychologist Kelly McGonigal from the fantastic website TED. If you get the chance to watch it, it's a very interesting talk. Here's the sketchnote I took from it.
Today I'm linking to the following blogs: Manon Popje's Illustrations, Paint Party Friday, The Shabby Nest, A Creative Princess, Handmade Harbour and I Gotta Create.
