As I mentioned in my last post, June was a total whirlwind. I am pleased to say that I was swept along by it and landed safely in the first weekend of July with absolutely no extra activities planned and my spectacularly noisy neighbour appears to have gone away so it was quiet too.

As part of the Daily Marker challenge I have been experimenting with my Watercolour paints a little. I haven’t wanted to colour in stamped images but knew I wanted to play with paint so thought I’d make do with a spot of doodling. Here are my makes for the last 2 days.

Put it all together and what do you get? Yes, a sleeping, knitting koala. I bought my daughter this great book http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/1409587606?keywords=usborne%20drawing%20animals&qid=1446055234&ref_=sr_1_1&sr=8-1 It breaks down the process… Continue reading Sleepy Koala Birthday
