Summer sketchbook

I began to draw patterns and pictures because I was aware of copyrights problems. Every details and patterns you see in my illos is mine.

I would never, ever use someone's else work in my illustrations. But I still gather bits and stuff in my creative path,and I am quite fond of washi paper. It was really frustrating not to use those bits and piece, and they do are part of my inspiration. So I decided that this summer I will have a special sketchbook where I will glue and have fun with every bit of paper I like (it's called decoupage and it's legal). I think it's OK to show you, as long as I don't make money out of it. And if I ever use these professionally I will change the glued pieces for pieces of my own.

I found the washi tape here : Hiromi Paper but they don't sell it online , I saw some at Uguisu, it's from Mihoko Seki. The golden cat was on the pack! Other washi tape from mt of course, stamps and tags from Japanese dollar stores, unfortunately I don't have references. Decoupages and drawings by me, Delphine.

The french stuff in the page is basically rambling about the day and the fact that people are not so fond of cats in westside LA. I am!

(tiens? c'est redevenu rose)
Ok. Tu m'as convaincue.
J'espère que j'aurai assez de colle pour mettre en page tout mon bazar.
(mais comment j'ai fait pour ne pas voir ce pattern jaune safran avec des lignes bien fiftisant?)
(hypothèse possible: t'as plusieurs déco sur fond rose, rien que pour nous confuser)
(autre hypothèse envisageable: j'avais pas encore atteint le tittrage optimal en caféine dans le sang la dernière fois que je l'ai vu)

Nan te biles pas je viens de le rajouter. Je fais des tests en safran, tu te doutes bien, mais ca derive. La c'est parti safran, crois moi ou pas, mais paf, c'est arrivé rose.Je corrige le cap, je te previens
Le chemin est long de la coupe au footballer

j'adore cette idée que chez toi le safran vire forcément à quelque chose avec du rose dedans! :D

Sachant que le premier rose était un essai de vert en fait, on est mal barrées

arghhhh I have a craving for washi tape, but didn't take any for my trip to switzerland. Went to 6 or 7 stores already, found just one but quite boring and for a fortune.... I miss my tapes ;-)
Thanks for the "tranches de vie", so cute and inspiring...

Hihi tu veux un paquet d'urgence?
