Roll up-Roll up! For a sneek peek into my colouring-in designs, it’s taking me longer than I thought to do these designs, as I keep wanting to colour things in..normally with the black pen, if you look at my sketchbook work-which is most like these designs, I colour in with black pen often!! It’s difficult to just to get the drawings correct so they are good enough for some someone else to play with!
These designs themselves are quite surreal, I have a wee hyena in the corner, a flat fish (as you do) a fantastical bird, an apple, a cuppa, a wee house! I love the surreal aspect to my work, I might make a few that are particularly surreal…I have a weird brain I think, who else would think of hyenas and cupcakes? (and I have no idea why I did!) I think colouring-in is a good mindful exercise, especially if you feel you can’t draw, I draw for mindfulness, I’ve been doing it for years before mindfulness existed!
I want to do a dog and a cat and an other pet page too, they are my next designs.
I also ordered a few supplies, for collage, so I hope to do some ‘how-to’ ideas too in time.
When I have finished these designs, they shall be sent to work-@Swansea Council, for them to put out on their social media, into a pack of crafts being taken around residents in Swansea and also on my blog and website for folk to copy, download and print off…i’m not exactly sure how yet.
In other news I thought I would also add a few cool things I’ve seen recently on telly or heard on the radio.
In other news.. there are only a few days left to try and save Derek Jarman’s Prospect Cottage for the nation, please give if you can, I love Derek’s writings particularly! It’s such a shame the last days are coinciding with all of this chaos!
