September Student

In keeping my promise to myself that I would dedicate September to learning, I joined the Inky Doodles workshop by GooglyGooeys, which was held in the HeyKessy Studio. I was a bit late for class (coming from my early morning Watercolored Tattoos workshop), so I wasn't able to take much photos of the studio. But later in the afternoon, I hung out for a bit with Mansy, Mikko and Macy at the HeyKessy Shop.

All you craft hoarders should check out their lovely store filled with craft supplies, and of course, washi tape! The HeyKessy Shop is at 71-B Esteban Abada Street, Loyola Heights, Quezon City. They are open Wednesdays to Sundays, 11am-7pm.

Tippy allowed me to bring my own watercolor set, which was sort of cheating, because I'm so used to these pigments already. Looking back, I think I should have experimented with a new set of paints!

The process was familiar, but I was grateful for the chance to be a student, and just create, and learn with other students. I learned new and reaffirmed old techniques, and for a moment, forgot about everything in the world, except for my little flowers and leaves. :P

Since I'm not a fan of pencil marks, I just went ahead and painted blobs.

We let the paint dry, and then inked over the blobs using a calligraphy pen. I used the G nib for this.

Then we cut out all the images.

For my homework, since I wasn't able to finish everything in class (I kept standing up to talk to my friends, haha), I composed my little flower garden.

Double-sided tape layers made these watercolored blooms look like 3D! So fun. But tedious! Much respect for all the hard work the Googlygooeys do for each blog post they make! Thanks for letting me be a student for a day, Tippy! Like I said, my creative soul needed that. ;)
