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. Last weekend I finished the seashell in the bottom left corner.
And this is how the Australia sampler looks now. Only one more item to stitch!

365somethings2018 completed

In January I started a new challenge: 365somethings2018. For me this was playing with paint, markers, pencils, (hand carved) stamps, clippings, etc on paper. This could be collaging in an altered book, drawing on index cards, doodling or drawing in a Moleskine, painting on watercolour paper, etc. Sometimes I’ll shared a few of my 365somethings2018 here, but I shared them all on my Facebook blog and Instagram. Last Friday I completed my challenge with a collage on the last pages of my altered book.

This year I participated 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 the last 9 days, all drawn with a fountainpen.
