Autumn Painting | By Niina

When I saw the little sticker sheet of autumnal objects it made me think of paper dolls! When I was little I loved playing with them. Family from Finland would send me magazines that had paper dolls to cut out and I would spend hours laminating them, cutting them out and dressing them up. So seeing these stickers from Sticky Kit got me all nostalgic and I wanted to paint a girl that I could dress up.

The hobonichi planner has really thin paper and you wouldn't think it would handle paint very well but apart from a little wrinkling if you use too much water, the paint looks brilliant on the paper. I used acrylic gouache to achieve nice opaque colours.

The great things about these stickers are that the edges are transparent so they blend into the paper and you can paint over them for seamless edges!

After I had finished painting the girl (she came out pretty cute!), I continued to decorate the rest of the page with some stickers from the July Sticky Kit and another autumn themed one I had. I also had some wrapping paper I had saved from a Japanese sweets box that matched perfectly!

And to finish it all off I used the Zig Clean Colour Dot pen to get perfect circles. If you've been eyeing the pens I highly recommend them! They're such an easy way to finish a spread and the colours are gorgeous.
