I'm doing another Instagram daily photo challenge all about colour! As with the last one, I'll update here once a week. If you want to see new pics daily I'm marcelinesmith on IG.

    Favourite Colour
    Static
    Mine is yellow. It's so cheerful on gloomy days and yellow flowers are the best. πŸŒΌβ˜€οΈπŸŒ»πŸ’›

    From the wardrobe
    Static
    I have an open rail so I can enjoy my clothes even when I'm not wearing them. As you can see, I like t-shirts, bright colours, patterns and stripes! Fun fact: this is my entire spring/summer wardrobe - only trousers, a few cardigans and a little bit of laundry are elsewhere.

    On my desk
    Static
    I'm one of those awful people who keep their desk tidy so here's a look inside my washi tape box! Too many kawaii designs that I will never be willing to use.

    Look up
    Static
    This is my view when I lie on the sofa: giant rainbow TOMpacasso plotting world domination! 🌈🌎

    Plastic
    Static
    I bought a colourful new suitcase for my summer holidays to London and Oban. Hopefully it will make me as happy a traveller as Usagi!

    Handmade
    Static
    Let's enjoy this crazy colourful blanket that covers the sofa bed in my studio. I don't know who made it but I'm very grateful they did!

    From the kitchen
    Static
    This happy apple sponge was one of the first things I put out when I moved 🍎 I'd been saving it for years until I had my own kitchen! (Fruit-themed kitchen list coming soon)

    Jewellery
    Static
    I very rarely wear or buy jewellery but here are my most colourful necklaces. Apparently I like unhappy jewellery

    Building
    Static
    There aren't many colourful buildings locally so here's the Moshi Moshi Box in Harajuku. It's super kawaii and well worth popping into as the staff are so friendly and will let you add some souvenir stamps to your collection.

    Group
    Static
    This is one of my favourite little displays of things. Rainbow Rowell's books are as colourful as her name and my Bumblebee and Pumpkin Meowchis are keeping an eye on them πŸπŸŽƒπŸ˜»

    Tools
    Static
    These are my favourite pens (Pentel sign pens) and I keep buying more in different colours. I really need a green one 🌈

    Look Down
    Static
    Let's go back to Japan instead and this delightfully colourful manhole cover in Osaka. There are so many beautiful ones to look out for.

    Tin
    Static
    Here's two of my favourite vintage tins. The one on the left is a tea tin from Edinburgh and now holds my badge collection. The Dutch tin was once full of biscuits but now has lots of change that I need to swap for real money.

    Glass
    Static
    It's a good excuse to finally share this photo of my cool space glasses by Life of Jay. I got one for my birthday last year and added another this year. I love them πŸš€πŸ’«

    Fabric
    Static
    Here's a couple of colourful kawaii favourites from my stash. Why didn't I buy more of those bears?!

    Boomerang
    Static
    I'm painting a cork board today because I ran out of space for my enamel pin collection 😬 (this is not interesting enough to gif - check my IG if you want to see it moving!)
  17. β€’
    Man Made
    Static
    I don't really know what to post for this so here's some more pens! I gave in and ordered the last three sign pen colours I needed. (this was a weird prompt, or maybe I'm still baffled that rainbow isn't one)

    Paper
    Static
    I have a whole box of paper cut characters I've made for tutorials and experiments. One day I will sort through them and have a little sale.

    Place
    Static
    Here's today's view from the seafront, my favourite place for a walk. It's looking a bit more colourful today - hopefully summer is back!

    From the Cupboard
    Static
    Here's a look inside my kitchen cupboard - so many favourites! There is no universe where I would own a matching dinner set.

    Here's some colours from yesterday's walk along the seafront.

    Pottery
    Static
    I do own more colourful ceramics but this bunny vase is my favourite and it's looking unbearably cute just now with a pink peony 🐰🌸

    Pattern
    Static
    I've been thinking about what to bring on my upcoming London trip and I think I need to wear my cat dress to Hyper Japan.

    Food
    Static
    I bought these gigantic strawberries a few days ago and they were really good. I like to think this is what was happening while they were warming up in the sunshine πŸ“πŸ˜Š

    Flower
    Static
    These are the rest of the peonies cheering up my mantelpiece 🌸🌸🐰🌸🌸

    Door
    Static
    Who lives in this little house? (This was a swipe and see but I've made a collage for you - it's Rover from Animal Crossing)

    My View
    Static
    This is the view from my kitchen window looking very green 🌿🌳

    Bag
    Static
    I bought this fox bag for my Japan trip last year and it ended up being so perfect that I'm still using it as my main bag 🦊

    Contrast
    Static
    This is my favourite pin combo: Liberty print hoodie and Stay Home Club Awful pin πŸ™ƒ

    Object
    Static
    I eventually chose my lovely vintage tin of coloured pencils as it sums up this challenge quite nicely. It's even still got the complaint slip inside in five languages! The twist is that I don't like Caran D'Ache pencils so it actually holds my much-used collection from different brands.

    Here's the inside

    Shout out to everyone else who sharpens pencils with a knife πŸ”ͺ✏️
