Like I said, rooster’s on my mind.
We name some of our cups, and we have two sets of Happy Cups.
Both have roosters on them, not by design but by happenstance,
although maybe roosters = morning = creative time = a pretty happy time for me.
Maybe it is because we bought them at the old Mamma Ro store,
a very happy store for us! They are our celebration cups, our ritual cups, our anti-depression cups! (A lot to lay on a cup, I know.)
This is the second set, our hand-painted Italian rustic happy rooster cup.
Best filled with ginger-brown-sugar-milk-coffee.
That lovely rust is Diamine Ancient Copper ink, both brushed and drawn.
The background is Noodler’s Lexington Grey Ink and KWZ Ink’s Foggy Green.
Used a Pentel brush pen because it is so easy to have inks in bed if they are in a brush pen!
And on the opposite page, I played with inks showing Mitchell my favorite non-waterproof inks and how they move on the smooth Nostalgie page. Diamine Ancient Copper,
KWZ Foggy Green, Diamine Regency Blue, De Atramentis Tobacco.
OM by Mitchell. Didn’t count this as a drawing…. Took me as much time as the Rooster!
