Some More Fun With Art πŸŽ¨

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

The weekend is right around the corner, and we are entering uncharted grounds, aren’t we? 😎 Can’t go anywhere (or at least we’re not supposed to!), the weather is not cooperating, so outside time is out 😐, ergo, artsy-fartsy indoor stuff it is! 😍

You can plan a trip around the coffee table πŸ˜‚

–2

You will find a plethora of activities & worksheets for the littles right here

The people behind ‘open culture.com’ offer everything you could ever desire when it comes to entertainment and activities…or so they say. I have not tried to get a movie, an ebook, an online course. But if you’re willing to try – here’s the Link 😊

If you find that it is as awesome as it looks, please let me know. I’d appreciate it! 😍

I was surprised to get some sweet compliments on my drawings.

You might remember the ‘ Flower Queen’

I recently finished ‘Let’s read’ 😊

Then I thought you might wanna invite these girls into your home, and stay busy while being artsy. So here they are as coloring pages. Just print and get colorful! πŸ˜ƒ

They’re a bit wonky in places…but, aren’t we all? πŸ˜‰

I hope you have oodles of fun with these ideas!

Be safe & stay healthy! πŸ’•

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Since it looks like we’re all gonna have to stay inside a while longer, and school’s out for the summer 😳 (at least in Kansas it is) the call for activities is getting louder!

Apparently the “Roll a….” drawing activity is very popular.

I found this ‘Roll a monster’ activity sheet on Pinterest.

P.S. There’s nothing wrong with your eyes. The picture on the original post was so small, that it got a bit blurry when I enlarged it. 😁

For a variety of Monsters…here are some more ideas πŸ™‚

I’m off to hunt for more activities for us all! 😍

Take good care of yourself! Wash your hands! 😊 I hope you get to stay inside! πŸ’•

Trying New Things πŸ˜Ž

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

I may have mentioned my creative slump here lately.

I did come across this gem a few days ago…

Well, that sounds easy enough! πŸ˜…

But since I’ve pretty much tried everything out there, I had to figure out what it is I wouldn’t mind ‘sucking at’ πŸ˜‰

During my ‘Journal-making-days’ I did some collages. And did enjoy it.

So, that’s what I did…in big 😁

I don’t hate it πŸ˜‰

While drawing the ‘Yoga Lady’ as a finishing touch, I thought I’m gonna try my hand at drawing. I know I’m not very good at it, but I do love it. And practice makes perfect, right? πŸ˜‚

Clicking around on Pinterest I found the art of Sandra Silberzweig. She draws abstract faces. I was drawn to it because of the abundance of color, and – let’s be honest here – because I thought I might be able to draw something like it. πŸ™ƒ

Here’s my first try…

That led to another ‘portrait’…

She’s not the most beautiful creature on the planet, but I do like how she turned out. Okay… I might be a bit prejudiced 😎

So I will keep on drawing πŸ˜ŠπŸ’• Let’s see where this will take us!

The next project I’m working on is this blog. I would love to turn it into a ‘mostly books’ blog. Not exclusively…but definitely book oriented. 😍

I do hope you’re all good with that, and will stick with me on this journey. ☺️

Have a wonderful rest-of-the-week! Stay healthy my friends! πŸ’•
