Out for the Winter

Wouldn’t it be nice…just a complete rest for all of the cold season and waking up fresh as a diasy…with the daisies in spring!

Fine liner in my Pac Man sketch book…then coloured in photoshop. I’d like to scan this in and colour it up to create a proper print…I’m more pleased with it then I thought I’d be

Fire Hearter

We’ve got the fire going tonight, and we’ve been chopping and storing wood for the winter this afternoon – in the process I pulled out this bit of wood because of the patterns in the grain and thought it should be put to a pretty use.

I’ve used my silver Ferby Lyra pencil to enhance the grain detail and make a heart art…looks a bit like an eye don’t you think?

Sugar and spice

Today I watched a video of Christopher Hitchens recommended by Been There Done That on Twitter – I respect what they share and gave it a go. Some bits did loose me, but I connected strongly with his views on humanity, self-belief and women and their power  - the last 30 seconds of his talk is stunning…

‘Think for yourself, much more happiness, beauty and wisdom will come to you that way’.
Christopher Hitchens, R.I.P 13 April 1949 - 15 December 2011

Combine that with my focus of my webinar for the Webheroines Conference in January and you’ll get quite a girly heart art this evening.

Thanks for your guidance and support today Keri and congrats on being featured in the Design Week blog! whoop whoop!

I’ve mixed up some left over treats from Crafternoon Tea and some bits from my artbox. I stitched pink lace to illustrative tracing paper, added a pearl button and stuck to an oldy-worldy-bodice pattern:

Grrrr

Inspired by the very cool talk by Alex Maclean of the very colourful Airside hosted at Glug this evening I’ve chosen to take my (and geek Debbies) theme of the day…Debbie’s gorrrgeous tiger tights for my heart art today. Thanks to geek Debbie and geek Heather for a top evening x

I made this heart art with a kit that I brought from the little stall of goodies…
