Day 8 of 100 Day Project

  We’re into the second week of #the100dayproject, and I think it’s got off to a good start as not only have I finished today’s challenge before 10pm but it’s also an illustration that I needed to finish to send to Our Handmade Collective in Leeds. I just need to add colour now, and apart… Read more »

Day 7 of 100 Day Project

The first week of #the100dayproject is complete, and I’m having mixed feelings so far. On one hand I’m glad that I’m getting to try new techniques as well as some old faves, and pushing myself out of my comfort zone, but on the other hand I feel disappointed with most of the end results because I’m… Read more »

Day 6 of 100 Day Project

Of all the random combinations so far today’s has to be my favourite, printing is always a winner and I never need an excuse to make somebody smile so I had an idea in mind almost immediately. The main issue was time and practicalities as we spent most of the day with family and then… Read more »

Today’s theme was ‘people practice’ which is definitely one of my weaknesses, but I also picked ‘sharpies’ which means I could use bold lines to free up my drawing… Read more »

Day 3 of 100 Day Project

Third time lucky, or so they say… Well it was the complete opposite for me today, it’s not been the best day as my son has been ill, and after an emergency doctor’s appointment (luckily he just has a virus) I’ve spent most of the day cuddling the little man and giving him TLC in… Read more »

Day 2 of 100 Day Project

  The sunshine today was a perfect opportunity to sit in the garden with my sketchbook whilst my hubby entertained my son for a bit. Today’s pick was typography for day 2 of #the100dayproject, which is not my strong point and definitely something I want to work on more so it was a good chance to let… Read more »
