Here are the last of my rainbow-haired girl illustrations. The one above is Amanda Seyfried, the lovely lady in the hat is Blair Eadie from Atlantic-Pacific.

This pink-haired beauty is my oldest and dearest friend Kelly, we've known each other since we were tiny children.
 This sea-green portrait was inspired by Lauren Conrad.
Ashley Robertson (The Teacher Diva) was the inspiration for the painting below.

DIY Christmas Ornaments

DIY make your own Christmas ornaments with BrownPaperBunny
On Sunday we had a Christmas Crafternoon, and made our own ornaments inspired by the OtterBox Symmetry range of device cases (protection AND style, what more could you want!?). In case you haven't heard, they are running a contest, where you can win a Symmetry of your choosing and some crafty gift vouchers!

Check out all the details:
Here are few of our creations. We sure made a mess, but it was a lot of fun! Even kitty got in on the action!

How to make your own mini watercolor tin

I get a lot of questions on how I make my mini watercolor sets out of mint tins, so I thought I would show you rather than tell you. 

Here are the supplies you'll need:
  • Mint tin (Altoid tins work really well, or you can find interesting ones at candy stores)
  • Fimo or other bake-able modeling clay
  • Chopsticks (to help in the smaller areas)
  • Liquid watercolors in tubes
Note: Currently my favorite brand of watercolor is Sennelier, a French artists' watercolor with honey to keep it from drying too quickly. However, when you're traveling you probably don't have a lot of time to wait for paint to dry so I've opted for Winsor and Newton Cotman and Artist watercolors for my little tins.

And here is the tutorial on how to put it all together:
Please let me know if you have any questions, and if you make your own I'd love to see it! Tag @BrownPaperBunny on your favorite social media channel and I'll come check it out.
