Birthday Card

DSC_0006

I made a birthday card for a friend, bringing my 16 for 16 target of 15 up to 12, only three more to go – I should manage that quite easily.

I used the retro Dymo gadget to type the words, and pinking shears to cut the Duck Tape hinge for an added retro component.

The card was made from two off cuts left over from my Post Card making

and popped into this sweet pocket I bought in Japan, which is meant for wrapping snacks or cakes.

Seven

I had a lovely request from an Etsy customer to create a colouring sheet with the number 7 included. Her daughter is having an art party. The Pdf will be printed out for all the guests to have a copy to colour.DSC_0637

What a great idea!

I hope she likes it.

Mandala Magic

I am taking part in my first online class.AB Mandala1

Dipping my toe in, I have started with Alisa Burke’s mini-tutorial¬†entitled Mandala Magic.

It’s fun, and concentrating on one simple form suits my need to dip in and out according to the weather and other stuff going on right now.ABmandala1a

Alisa has a very distinct style and at first I thought my mandalas would turn out looking like hers, but no – not at all – I immediately went off in my own style adding colour from the start. AB mandalaThe course provides some wonderful prompts and is hugely inspiring. I’ve started in a small ring bound 6″ square sketch book, so that I can carry it around easily and doodle in odd moments.

I had Miss E and Little Bro here this week. mandalasWe were mainly in the garden, but needing to dodge the showers we retreated to Pippin (my little caravan in the garden) and did some mandala drawing together.

Here is Miss E’s so farE'smandala

and because Miss E enjoyed drawing a mandala so much and has a birthday coming up soon I have made her a card that she can continue to embellish herselfb'daycardAnother experiment for the Etsy shop me thinks – maybe others would enjoy colouring this pattern as well, you never know!
