Baby Diary

Hello, Copic fans!

Today I want to show you the last baby thing I made, which is something between a baby diary and a baby album. The mother of the little buddy wanted a book to write down the kindest moments from the routine and simultaneously to put in photos.

I'd been wandering a lot which image to use but in the end the cute, melting smile of the girl from Mo's Chocolate Smile made me use exactly this stamp. I had some demands about the colours - to be something fresh and contrasting at once. Here is what came out:


I don't have a system when colouring the stamps, I don't follow certain steps and every time I start from a different part. Usually I colour the skin first, then the hair and last are the clothes. When I colour the hair mostly I try to make it similar to the person the project is prepared for. In this specific case, the baby is still little so I made the hair like her mother's. I comform with the background papers (or fabric) when colouring the clothes. Sometimes (like now) I add a texture of the fabric of the clothes.

And what would be one 'chocolate smile' whithout a decoration with some little chocolates of polimer clay?

The book has 150 sheets for writing and 16 pages for photos.

Copic Markers used:
Skin:E11, E50, E51, E93
Hair: E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, E29
Pants: BG10, BG70, BG73, BG75, BG77, W5
T-Shirt and Socks: RV52, RV55, RV66, RV69, W5

Thanks for stopping by!
