tombow pen in the mail last night, so today I decided to go back and try out Carla Sonheim's technique again. Last time I tried it, I ended up with some cute watercolor bunnies that N. and I made together. Still, I wanted to try out the real thing.

I'm pretty happy with the results. I'll definitely be using this technique again.
Moving right along...

I liked this project, but it's not something I could do with the little one. She doesn't yet have the patience and the fine motor skills for folding the paper. But if you have older kids, this might be perfect.
Where have you found your inspiration lately?
