A painting for my dad




From top to bottom:

Watercolour painting for my dad, A2 map, Sukie Agenda book and a pencilcase (All from Paperchase).

I don't usually paint things like this but it was for my dad. He's been asking for a painting for a while and I promised I'd do it if he gave me a lift to work when it snowed haha. So here it is.

I also popped into Paperchase the other day. I ended up buying a world map poster because a touch of wanderlust is just what I needed in my day-to-day life. I thought it would make a nice background for blog photos too. I also picked up this Sukie Agenda book because it just looked so bright and colourful compared to my plain, grown-up diary. Luckily it's undated so I can save it for next year. And finally I picked up this cute little pencil case in an attempt to get more organised for this last leg of the year.

  5. That's so sweet of you to paint your dad a picture. You look pretty skilled in watercolor. I've never tried it before, but I'm interested! Also, that agenda is very pretty! I would've bought it too.
