Lately, I’m trying to learn how to paint using watercolour. I’ve always loved art but never did spend enough time to learn it as I found it too difficult. Youtube is a good source for learning a lot of things, so currently, I’m learning how to paint and calligraphy as well.
Anyway, today I’m going to share with you planner addicts how did I do my own teardrop stickers, which is quite easy. All you need is
- Sticker paper
- Silhoutte Potrait or any other cutter machine
So, first of all, I designed teardrop shapes on the Silhouette software. Once it’s done, I just let my Silhouette Portrait to cut the shapes on a sticker paper. After it was cut, I just painted using my Kuretake watercolour and voila my teardrop sticker is ready. Then, I cut the sticker paper into 4 pieces, so that it would be easier for me to put it in my planner. Easy, right??
My printer ran out of toner, and that’s how I have come up with this idea… It’s interesting to know that lacking of certain thing encourages creativity thinking…. hehehe… Of course, this idea is not restricted to teardrop shapes only, if you own a ‘shape’ puncher such as hexagon puncher, you can use your watercolour to paint on a sketch paper (sturdier) or a sticker paper and then use the ‘shape’ puncher to get your very own stickers. The only hassle of this method is the shapes may need to be put in an organised box or small plastics to carry it around. Try it!!
