Tatting a snowflake and a bookmark

It relaxes me to do some tatting now and then. Found lovely patterns again on Jon's Thread Escapade and learnt some new things like the daisy picot!

Ik vind frivolité af en toe heel ontspannend om te doen. Ik vond weer twee leuke patronen op Jon's Thread Escapade en leerde weer iets nieuws: de daisy picot!

Found souvenir

Cannot remember who gave this to us, but the children played with him for years. Therefore he is a bit rough around the edges. He came from Egypt that's for sure. I used ballpen for this drawing, that is less outspoken than black fineliner. I like that.

Kan me niet herinneren van wie we hem gekregen hebben, de kinderen hebben jaren met hem gepeeld, vandaar dat hij een beetje verfomfaaid is. Hij komt in ieder geval uit Egypte. Ik heb hem met ballpoint getekend dat is minder hard dan een zwarte fineliner.

Same object: different materials

In my moleskine I made four drawings of the same top. #1 with colored pencils, #2 with watercolors, #3 graphite pencil, #4 fineliner. It is interesting to do such an exercise for you discover what materials are good for you and which ones you like the best. For me it is undoubtedly watercolors, not that I am very good with them, but I really like working with the colors and the quick result is very rewarding.

Autumn is here

The leaves are now really coming down, so I picked one up and made a portrait in my moleskine.

Nu de blaadjes echt vallen, heb ik er een opgepakt en hem vereeuwigd in mijn moleskine.
