Flying and Bouncing: Days Ten & Eleven

Continuing with 30 Days of Get Your Art On challenge, I have added a little more to my latest art journal spread. The bird image is from here, and I coloured it with Inktense pencils. The words “Had I but wings like thine, Free bird of flight, To scale the heights that only wings can reach” are from a poem by Martha Lavinia Hoffman which you can read here.

had i but wings like thine

I have also been doing some more drawing, joining the boys in this week’s Sketch Tuesday challenge, which was to sketch something that bounces:


And I have been working a bit more on a stitching project that I will tell you all about next week. Here’s a little teaser:

      Thank you! It’s part of a bigger project that I am involved in but it hasn’t launched yet so I can’t tell you more…yet. Stay tuned 🙂

    Love them all; especially I’m a piece of the puzzle!

  4. The ‘pebblyism’ works so well on the basketball. I can really feel that surface! Love the puzzle piece too.

    I had a chuckle about you researching “things that bounce”…I can just imagine what you found! The puzzle piece looks great and I look forward to seeing what you’re doing with it.

I will reply to comments here on the blog, so please check back if you are looking for a response! I love hearing from you x
