Just to prove I am on top of this challenge, here is May finished! June is (as usual) a work in progress. I am just ever-so-slightly late each month but despite that I do mostly keep on top of things! If you're still doing the challenge (and plenty of you are!) you'll find the link at the bottom of this post so that you can share your awesome art, and don't gorget it's on Facebook and flickr too.
I have just come back from a few days away with my family on the very beautiful Isle of Skye (Scotland, UK). It's a long long drive but totally worth it when you get there. The weather was unusually good and it didn't rain once all week woohoo!
I came across this old fishing boat ... absolutely love the decay and the colours:
Lots and lots of cute croft houses with thatched roofs ... complete with weights:
No holiday would be complete without a bit of beach combing:
And doodling! Is there a better place to doodle than on a beautiful beach?! My husband captured these pics of me, up to my usual tricks ;-)
And here are a few completed pages in my Art Doodle Love book. For those of you who don't know (where have you been?!) this is a book with ready-made backgrounds, and lots of doodle prompts encouraging you to get creative. It's a fab book for journaling on-the-go because all you need are a few coloured pencils and you're off! I completed these pages with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils.
This page was mostly done before I got to skye, but I managed a little doodle of the scenery on the lower left:
This page was mostly done on the beach. Her face is slightly blue because of the colour of the background ... it gives her a bit of an Avatar quality I think!
And finally, this page has been on-going over months! I just add a bit as and when I feel like it.
And finally, thanks to all of you who have booked onto my classes at The Artistic Stamper (Kent, UK) in November which sold out in record time :-)) If you didn't manage to get a place, keep an eye out here .... just saying ;-)
Bye for now ......
