Loading photos is quite frustrating since my son made changes to my laptop. He made the changes so that I could print from my laptop while at his house, but I’ve about had it. I think I’ll print what I need to today and then have him take all of the things off of the laptop that he added tomorrow.
Little C has already ditched the project, but I’m hopeful that she’ll want to play along some throughout the weeks to come. The top photo for June 5th is from Big C. It says “Snail mail: It gets there when it gets there!” She knows I love my snail mail! Big C used an ink pen and a rubber stamp with black ink to work her magic on this card. Mine is a magnetic poem I used the nature poetry words. Enlarge the photo by clicking on it to read it better. I drew the magnetic words with a fountain pen and black ink, coloring them with colored pencils.
June 6th had Big C drawing Gabriel with a pencil! I think she did a wonderful job of it. Although she made him look mean, which he is not! He’s a sweetheart. Of course, she may have been thinking of what he’d look like if he was protecting her and I have no doubt he’d be mean then. Hopefully, you can tell what my sad little drawing is. Drawing is not my forte. I’ve never been able to get the hang of dimension, for one thing or scale. I’d like to be able to draw better though, so I keep trying. I used a pencil for the outline and a blue colored pencil for the rest.
June 7th was a busy day around here. There was company keeping Big C busy all day, so she never got around to doing her card, but I did. We’ve had quite a lot of rain the last couple of days. The cloudy, grey skies were getting to me I guess. I had planned to use all the markers and paint pens I had brought with me on my visit, but once I got the yellow on the card, I just stopped! It was so happy after all the cloudy weather. I couldn’t do another thing to it. It was done. Big C hasn’t done her card for today yet, but I’ll show it on the next posting if she does it. June 8th had me doing something I’ve wanted to do for a long time! I put paint on bubble wrap and smooshed it onto my card! Then I smooshed it some more in a different place. And again in a different place. It was fun! I want to do more of this with more colors, more space!
