The importance of feeling grateful - in a journal | Blog Post By Sanna

Hello! I am Sanna, a guest DT member from Sweden! I have written here on the blog once before, about memory keeping in a junk journal. This time I want to tell you a bit about my daily habit: Writing in my gratitude journal. Honestly, a few years back I didn’t really saw the point of keeping a gratitude journal.

Hobonichi- To be or not to be? | Blog Post by Connie

Creating Muted Vintage Watercolour Palette | Blog Post by Kenry

It’s another artsy box curated by The Stationery Selection which included a Kuretake Pocket Pouch Watercolour Set. ☺ I’ve been using Kuretake watercolour (regular blocks) for some time and always fall for its highly-pigmented vibrant colours with amazing consistency. In this blog post, I am going to share how I mixed colours to create a muted vintage palette for a painting I got inspired by another TSS selected item received in August’s box – Mind Wave NatsukaShi-ru Sticker Sheet (Japanese’s retro appliances in 70-90s). With this, I did a little research on Korea’s 80s – 90s home appliance and attempted an illustration based on this topic.  I first drafted a pencil sketch and then outlined with black fine liners and...
