In my sketch pad 17/01/2012

I thought it would be great to show you here on my blog what other crafts and arts I do. Like my sketch pad, I usually never leave the house without my sketch pad! It is a great way to write or draw down ideas you get while you are out and about. And if I have to wait somewhere, you can usually see me doodling (or reading my kindle).

A couple of days ago I finally took the plunch and signed up for the She Art Workshop by Christy Tomlinson. She is one creative lady! I have been on a shopping spree to gather supplies (and of course all the supplies are usually double the US price, so not fair!) and I should be ready to start today. I seriously cannot wait!

Yesterday it was a nice warm day and so the kids wanted to swim in the pool. I didn’t feel well and didn’t want to go swimming, so I sat next to the pool with my sketch pad and my Faber Castell Pitt artist pen doodling away. This is what I accomplished while the kids had a swim:

new at TDC 01/12:

Hey there, how is the new year treating you? I had to go to the dentist yesterday for a root canal treatment – no fun let me tell you! The weather is also cold, grey and wet – not what summer is supposed to be. But checking out the weather forecast it shows me summer will be back on Sunday, YAY!

P52 Week 7

Hey there! Shivers, I was sure I had posted our next prompt… uhm.. I am back at school this week and life has been a little challenging. Must have slipped my mind to post here. DS picked pur next prompt and I had to giggle, it was such a perfect match for this week: Flowers, I am also happy to accept anything to do with Valentine’s day. Now, it might be a bit challenging for some, either it is too cold for flowers, or they don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day. But I want you to think outside the box – Maybe you have a room with flower wallpaper, or your (grand)daughter has a floral dress she loves, or  a flower she likes to put in her hair. Maybe your (grand) kids draw you a nice flower? There are many different aspects with this prompt. I cannot wait to see what you come up with.

?Don’t forget to leave a link to your photo/layout in your comment to this blog post. To be eligible to win the prize you must post your layout within 9 days of this blog post. But most of all, have fun and let your imagination and creativity go wild! Good Luck!

I know I am a bit behind with my layouts, but I am not giving up, life just did get a bit in the way.

Love in the Park
