Make & Take in February

Our next Make & Take Craft Group session will be on Friday, 26th February from 10am -12noon.

We will be continuing our doodly drawing theme which we started this month when we made Mandala drawings (see post below), but this time we will be making decorative doodled lettering.
As usual I will go though the whole process with you and as usual they are much easier to do than they look, but the end results are really stunning.  Here are some of the designs I came up with as I was preparing for this workshop.  I can't wait to see your take on this,

In my personal creative life I've been working in my art journal and experimenting with different styles.  Here are some of my pages, that hopefully will inspire you to get out your paints.

This page was going to be a "whimsical" girl, but she ended up being quite a realistic painting with a watercolour landscape, which I've never really done before, in the background.  
She reminds me of Anna in Downton Abbey!

I found a tube of neon pink paint, which reminded me of all those Mrs Slocombe ladies in the 70's who used to have a pink or blue rinse.

Intuitive experimental painting...I didn't look to closely at the paint colours I picked up and just used whatever came to hand...to a certain extent. 

I went back to my whimisical girly roots....I think she turned out really sweet.  Her little gold friend was recycled from a Christmas Card.

If you were wondering, the art journal I'm currently using is the large Dylusions journal by Ranger.
