February Review

Well February seems to have gone with a blink of an eye and I didn’t think I had achieved much what with life getting in the way but I have done more than I thought!

My first drawing of an animal...a hare.

A couple of birthday cards....colouring is therapeutic!

And even managed to sew a new toy basket for my dog!

Nurture Girl

It took three weeks to make but was well worth the time. My nurture girl was made with paperclay, then painted mainly with Fresco paints and the details/shading added with Pitt Pens.

Flowery Layers

I am really pleased with how this fresh and modern card turned out using a freebie stamp for Craft Stamper magazine. I coloured them and layered them up with alcohol pens.

I am going to enter it into the following challenges:

January Review

As we are on the last day of the month thought it was time to share some of my January projects here on my blog.

First up at the very start of the month I made some art journaling dice to help when you mojo fails you and you need a kickstart to your creativity.

I rolled just one of the dice and it landed on bird so here is what I decided to draw.

I have been working in both these journals for well over a year and thought it was high time I decorated the covers. They look much nicer on my shelf and I will definitely be decorating more of my journals as the year progresses.

And finally I share a sewing project I worked on throughout 2017 and put the finishing touches to it in the first week of January. I just love how many mindfulness quilt turned out...all my own design and very cosy. Been much used already!

How are everyone else’s January creative projects shaping up?
