Birthday cards & Notepads


Yesterday I got together with a friend and had a painting day. I wanted to try out watercolors again (last time I touched them was about 5 years ago) and I made a few birthday cards! I think they turned out relatively cute. :3

I also tired out some acrylic painting on canvas, but I didn't like how they turned out, so I will have to try again! Practice makes perfect.

I'm glad I'm starting to work on things like this again. Painting is calming, and each piece turns out to be one of a kind! :) I plan on doing a lot more paintings like this and hopefully they will get bigger and better!

Onto other things... For awhile now, I've been wanting to make notepads with my illustrations on them. But every time I try to look for printing shops that offer that kind of service, I can't find a thing! Nothing! Unless I want to pay an arm and a leg for it, and for something that I don't even really want! Places are charging 5-10 per notepad, and all you get on it is a 2 color print of your company logo! BOOO! I want to get a full color illustration on mine! Then it hit me! I can do this sort of thing at my work place! So today I printed off some pages and put together my own little notebook.

 As you can see, it turned out super cute! :3 So I did up the math to see how much it would cost me to print off a few of them just for starters... and I didn't like how it was adding up. If I printed them at my work place I would have to charge about $8-10 per notebook. And I don't think anyone would pay that much for them. :C

So my search continues to find a place where I can get notepads like the one above (or a notepad that has glue binding) printed off at a reasonable price. If you know of a place link me! :3
