Watercolour Bird on Old Sheet Music

The library I work at has been throwing out some old novels and sheet music (see the Tree painted on an old Sherlock Holmes story in a different post below!).

I thought the paper was so beautiful it needed to be re-purposed. I have started experimenting with watercolours for the first time, and thought a little birdy might go nicely with the sheet music…

I’ll definitely have to do some more and get it just right (I want a more opaque bird for starters), but for now – here’s my first attempt :)IMG_1538© Michelle De Aizpurua and MissyCartoons 2015

Prototype T-shirts

Finally got some samples of t-shirts with my designs on them. I think they look awesome! It’s so fun to be able to wear my own art! :D

Still have to test them through the washing machine though, hopefully they’re good quality and durable.

Check them out (and more stuff) to purchase at the Spreadshirt site here. I’ll be checking out RedBubble and Society6 soon too.

Affirmations and ‘Spiritual Science’

Today I decided to do some mental work.

I’ve been meaning to sit down and write some good affirmations, as I find the ones you purchase can sometimes be so unrelatable or wishy-washy. I would read them sometimes and just roll my eyes at the way things were put.
