Coloursplash with tombows

Coloursplash with tombows

I like to write. And I love colours. So…in my BuJo, I dedicate some pages to quotes that I write and colour 🙂

Today I wanted to try something I’ve seen others do with tombows: a sort of colour splash!

I chose the colours I wanted to use: yellow, green, blue, purple, pink. Then I drew on a piece of soft plastic, a piece of a plastic sheet to put paper in. The ink doesn’t stick to the plastic, instead, it gathers in little droplets. I sprayed with water, to make it wetter, and put it on the paper to make an imprint. Pretty! I used tombows to write as well, and the texture of the paper felt a little bit different but still nice to write on.

And, of course, you need a dog for the photo 🙂

A few tips: 

Use a lot of ink. Really lay it on, and mix the colours a bit.

If you want a sort of dotted effect: use only a little water (or none at all)

If you want the colours to really blend: use a lot of water.

The plastic will probably cling to the paper the second you put it on, but try to rub it just a little to mix the colours.

Let dry completely before you write on it.

Now you try! 

And please,  @Thecreativekelpie if you use my quote on Instagram because I would love to see what you have created!

I had a post planned on reviewing new pens today, but they didn’t arrive yesterday so that post has to wait.

Instead, I’m going to write about something else entirely!

I’m doing the #bohoberrychallenge, and this month it’s about personal growth. Really interesting to think about! It’s only a challenge, nothing serious, but it feels good to think about the “deeper things” in life if even just a little bit. Yesterday the question was “what is personal growth to you?”. I had nothing. I mean, I know what personal growth is! Sort of…Or do I?

I thought about how I wanted to do the challenge. Doodle? Quote? Photo? Drawing? I looked at other people’s comments. I googled quotes. And then I went to bed.

So this morning, I realised how I wanted to do it:

It all comes down to this one word, at least to me.

Believe.

What do you believe in today?
