Haven't posted a lot of photos here lately, which is mostly due to the fact that I'm sick and stuck on the sofa or in bed. Pregnancy and health complications. Anyway, I recently moved into my Simple Stories Carpe Diem Ballerina pink planner instead of my new Marigold one. I feel the Marigold one would suit the summer and fall months better. And I got new paper pads today, one of which had this gorgeous patterned paper which fits my Ballerina planner perfectly 😍 #simplestories #carpediemplanner #ballerinaplanner #a5planner #planner #prettyplanners #dutchplanners #plannergirl #plannergeek #plannernerd #planneraddict #plannerfreak #planners #plannerinserts #inserts #a5inserts #mo2p #wo2p #monthlyspread #monthlyinserts #weeklyspread #weeklyinserts #etsy #etsyseller #etsyshop #retrohugs #retrohugsinsertsPaper District giveaway 😍😍😍 @paperdistrict_ #paperdistrict #paperdistrictgiveawayJust some test drawings and doodles I did last night to test the new Prima Marketing Watercolour Confections sets 😍 call you tell what's on my mind? πŸ˜‚πŸ˜…β€οΈ #primamarketing #prima #watercolor #aquarel #aquarelle #theclassics #watercolorconfections #decadentpies #pasteldreams #tropicals #paint #verf #drawing #doodles #doodle #drawings #illustration #illustrations #baby #pregnant #zwanger #pregnancy #zwangerschap #simsbaby #sims #thesims #thesims4 #freezerbunnyBeen playing with my new Prima Marketing watercolour sets for a bit. Mostly done swatches to see the colours, and did a few tests too. I'm loving this! 😍 it's been a while though, so I need to get familiar with watercolouring again. Now all I "need" are the Shimmering Lights and Odyssey sets. Someday!

I already had "The Classics" Prima Marketing Watercolor Confections set, but the colours of the "Decadent Pies" set are just so me! πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜ I also already had the VersaMagic Dew Drop Red Magic ink pad, but mine ran out of ink pretty soon after I got it in 2016. And I use this specific ink pad quite often. So it was time for a new one.

Furthermore I got two brushes by Prima Marketing with a water reservoir for my watercolors. I already had a few from Sakura, but they were really small and not very good at detailed work. Quite pleased with these things, as I'm sure I'll make plenty of new illustrations in 2018 for my shop ❀️ #primamarketing #prima #watercolor #aquarel #aquarelle #theclassics #watercolorconfections #decadentpies #paint #verf #scrapwereld #versamagic #redmagic #dewdrop #dewdrop #retrohugs #waterbrushCelebrated Sinterkerst (Secret Santa) with family tonight, and this was my gift 😍❀️ #primamarketing #prima #watercolor #aquarel #aquarelle #theclassics #watercolorconfections #secretsanta #surprise #sinterkerst #sinterklaas #kerst #christmas #xmas #christmaseveReceived my Christmas planner today 😍 right in time too!
