Inchie Challenge 2021 #1–3

Another challenge! I had been doing some colouring for the latest Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge when Amy from Mindful Art Studio announced her Inchie Challenge. Twelve days of creating two-inch-square artworks in response to a prompt word. I decided that I would follow along and make mine as ink drawings coloured with watercolours.… Continue reading Inchie Challenge 2021 #1–3

Square-a-thon challenge #13–16

And here are the final four images I created for the Spring Square-a-thon. I really enjoyed doing something so far out of my usual comfort zone. If you missed any of the earlier paintings, you can catch up using the Square-a-thon tag. #13 Once Upon a Memory Created with: acrylic paints I had a couple… Continue reading Square-a-thon challenge #13–16

Square-a-thon challenge #1–4

I occasionally take part in challenges. I always do the Daily Marker colouring challenge, which is a nice simple "just colour something" type of challenge. And every now and then I'll take part in random one-off challenges if the theme interests me. But I have never participated in a challenge that has prompts. I think… Continue reading Square-a-thon challenge #1–4

The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 6–10

I'm always surprised when I don't miss a day colouring something during the challenge. I am terrible at actually getting around to most things I say I'm going to do — in fact, saying I'm going to do something is a pretty good way to ensure that it doesn't get done. Take this blog post… Continue reading The Daily Marker Challenge #12 day 6–10

The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge #12

Just in time to give my motivation a much-needed kick, along comes the twelfth Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Any thoughts about maybe slacking off a little this time around were firmly dismissed when I was asked to help out as one of Kathy Racoosin's team of goodwill ambassadors! I've taken part in every… Continue reading The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge #12

The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge #11

Focusing on the blog and being generally unmotivated to do much in the way of actual creating (plenty of ideas, just really hard to get started on any of them) has meant that I have been mostly absent from Instagram recently. I have every intention of at least looking through and liking everyone else's work,… Continue reading The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge #11

Pink, fabric and floss

Another challenge from That's Crafty; this time the requirement is to add stitching — either real or faux — to a project. I decided almost immediately that I wanted my stitching to be real and I even contemplated getting my sewing machine out. Machine stitching is on my list of things to play with, but… Continue reading Pink, fabric and floss
