Affordable Art Materials for Watercolor Painting and Where to Get Them in the Philippines

I once had a person comment on our family YouTube channel about how it was wrong of me to advise beginners can use cheap watercolor paints initially for practice. The person actually raised excellent points. I agreed wholeheartedly because as a watercolor newbie myself, I had a hard time transitioning from watercolor cakes to artist… Continue reading Affordable Art Materials for Watercolor Painting and Where to Get Them in the Philippines

My Current Bag Painting Fever

Hello my dear readerships. There's something about me that you might find surprising. I never liked hand bags or shoulder bags. I prefer carrying my stuff in a backpack, a messenger bag or a laptop bag. I have a few backpacks, one messenger bag (bought second hand), and a laptop bag which I got for… Continue reading My Current Bag Painting Fever

Paint Harry Potter with Me and the Busy Months Ahead

Hello, my dear readerships. If you noticed, I haven't written much these past few weeks.

My Favorite YouTube Channels for Watercolor Inspirations and Lessons

I can't count the number of times that I mentioned in this website how much I enjoy painting using watercolor. I love how flexible the medium is and how prone to accidents that make each painting I did unique - even if the finished art sometimes look like a total disaster.

Junk Journaling – A New Found Love

I used to collect stationery papers when I was a kid. It was a fad for a while. We also used to sell them in our "sari-sari" store (Filipino version of a grocer).

I Googled and the first link said that "budol" is a colloquial term for "someone who is gullible". I think that the word has no English equivalent. I'm… Continue reading Paperang Thermal Printer – My Best “Budol” Find of the Year (Yet)
