I’m going to try something new for a while: shorter posts, more frequently! So without further ado, I present to you my weekend’s creative work, a birthday collage for my brother-in-law:
I found this rather abused children’s book in the recycling the other day — the bears came from that. They were climbing a tree in the original picture but it only took a little creative snipping and rearrangement of some little bear hands to make them hold beers instead of branches. I used pencil crayons and felt pens to draw in the surroundings. I’ve been enjoying lately the effect of pale coloured pencils on dark paper – such different light affects are possible!
In other news, since I’m trying to stay healthy and kick all cold bugs from my system, I think I’ve become addicted to orange juice. Is this possible?? Also, please comment and tell me what you do to keep your immune system in tip-top shape. I think mine needs a kick in the pants!
