Week 23 – The 52 Week Illustration Challenge 

I will keep this short today as I’m writing on my phone. My laptop has decided that it needs a rest so is stubbornly refusing to work and I feel totally lost without it. I can’t help but think that the snazzy windows update it gave itself has something to do with it. My phone… Continue reading Week 23 – The 52 Week Illustration Challenge

The 52 Week Illustration Challenge

It’s been a while but I’m back with more illustrations for the Facebook challenge. Its been a bonkers few weeks  – the kids were under the weather, two week Easter holiday, Hubby had laser eye surgery for glaucoma (he is only in his 40’s) which then didn’t work and, you all know, just life. Oh… Continue reading The 52 Week Illustration Challenge

Week 11 – The 52 Week Illustration Challenge

Well, I actually managed to get a picture drawn and painted on time for this weeks illustration challenge. This weeks theme was perspective. It made me think of how my little boy used to sit on his knees and press his head to the floor so he could watch the wheels on his toy cars… Continue reading Week 11 – The 52 Week Illustration Challenge

Week 7&8 – The 52 Week Illustration Challenge

Oh dear, I fell behind with things again. There has been a lot going on and I’ve been busy but none of it has been particularly crafty. I am determined to keep up with this challenge though so I have done 2 quick drawings to catch up.

Week 4 – The 52 Week Illustration Challenge

I have fallen a bit behind with the Illustration Challenge this week mainly because I decided to tidy/re-organise my craft space (more on that another day – it turned out to be a huge job!) Week 4 theme was Ode to a favourite children’s book. I went between ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ by Eric Carle… Continue reading Week 4 – The 52 Week Illustration Challenge

Week 3 – The 52 Week Illustration Challenge

Several days later than planned but here is my entry for this weeks 52 week illustration challenge on Facebook. This weeks prompt was Australiana and, oh boy, I struggled with this one. I had very few ideas and they all seemed a little predictable, throw in an under the weather 6 year old and a heap of… Continue reading Week 3 – The 52 Week Illustration Challenge

Week 2 – The 52 Week Illustration Challenge

If you missed my post last week I am attempting to keep up with the 52 week illustration challenge on Facebook. This weeks word prompt was ‘feathered animals’. It seems I am still stuck a little on the whimsy of last week (possibly ‘whimsy’ is just my style!) and opted for fanciful birds decorating a… Continue reading Week 2 – The 52 Week Illustration Challenge
