Learning how to weave

I gave a loom/weaving kit to a young girl for Christmas and realized I can’t teach something I don’t know!! So I got a picture frame and push pins and made my own loom. I used some string for my warp threads and am using my scrap yarn and lace for the weft threads. I may stick some fabric in there as well. This is easy and fun! Wish I had figured this out sooner. 😊😊

Colour tool comparison

End to a successful day! I love when I get everything done on my list and have time left over for fun. I even baked Cassava Pie for the first time!

I used a stamp in my bullet journal to colour in and compare my faber castell pitt artist pens, tombow dual brush markers and water colour paints. I think the faber castell artist pens look more vibrant but I loved the water colouring process. With practice I’m sure I’ll get better with them both. I only have a few tombows and really didn’t enjoy using them, so I’ll just use those for lettering practice.
