1 // I Am Sweet
Achieved using a mix of colour pencils, permanent marker and watercolour wash.
Started with a watercolour wash and colour pencils – looking good!
Beehive! Looks a little overpowering but we shall continue!
Wow, the words don’t stand out as much.
Looking much better after defining!
2 // I Am A Gamer
Achieved by creating letters in a game called Terraria using blocks of different ‘material’, and then taking a screenshot. Or multiple.
I love this one – but it’s not A5 🙁
Here’s a better aspect ratio!
Finally mounted on some mounting board 🙂
3 // I Am Crafty
Achieved by folding and scrunching scrap fabrics into letters and gluing them onto more scrap fabric. I also added some clasps and fasteners to decorate the empty spaces, as well as a bow.
The little bow made from some extra scraps 🙂
The wrinkles and folds of the letter ‘I’ are very obvious here. I used one side of a snap fastener for the tittle of the ‘I’ too.
The final piece! But wait…
It’s too big (ﾉಥ益ಥ）ﾉ ┻━┻
4 // Meticulous
Achieved with 0.05 and 0.1 diameter micron pens on paper. And many many hours. MANY. Hours.

Pencil work for the text!
And so the end of my Chinese New Year Break begins!
Many years later, I’ve inked in the text as well as penciled in guides for the ornaments and flourishes 😀
Finally good LORD and now I am 84 years old. And very OCD.
