Australia sampler

Years ago my mother started this Australia sampler for my father. She got a poor eyesight over the years, so now I’m going to finish it for my parents. I share an update from time to time to keep me going. I finished this floral item in the bottom left corner.
Only 2 more items left of this to stitch!

ICAD 2018 box

This year I participated in ICAD (Index Card A Day) for the third time. There was a weekly theme with daily prompts. I shared my cards on my Facebook blog and Instagram. In my last ICAD post I shared the embroidered label of the box for my index cards, but I forgot to share the finished item! My box is made of cardboard and fabric with an Aida label, you can see a progress photo here. It’s made almost the same way as last year’s box.
My box surrounded by the indexcards.
The cards fits nicely!

Inktober

This year I’m participating in Inktober. Inktober is a month long art challenge created by artist Jake Parker that is focused on improving skill and developing positive drawing habits. A great excuse to make a new journal for my drawings. Take a look at it here. These are my face doodles from last week.
Two face doodles inspired by Pinterest pictures.
Two face doodles inspired by previous drawings in my Moleskine.
Two face doodles with Ecoline and a dippen.

365somethings2018

In January I started a new challenge: 365somethings2018. For me this is playing with paint, markers, pencils, (hand carved) stamps, clippings, etc on paper. This can be collaging in an altered book, drawing on index cards, doodling or drawing in a Moleskine, painting on watercolour paper, etc. Sometimes I’ll share a few of my 365somethings2018 here, but you can follow my challenge on my Facebook blog or Instagram. These are a few examples of the last weeks.

321/365 Owl doodles in my Moleskine pocket.
323/365 Another mandala variation in black and white.

A great excuse to make a new journal for my drawings. Take a look at it hereThese are my face doodles from last week.
I doodled this face with a fountain pen.
These faces were doodled with a needleroller ball in blue and black. I don’t think I use
them again in this journal, because it was bleeding to the backside.
The first male face doodles in this journal.
And 2 face doodles inspired by Pinterest pictures.

Yesterday I hand lettered the title page of my little journal.
