explore magic …
The Sketchy Thursday sketch this week was a bit unusual:
But I felt up for a challenge, so I gave it a go! I decided to do a collage layout as I haven’t done one of these for a while, and I thought the wavy diagonal line would work well as a hillside. Trouble was, by the time I’d stuck on a castle and my photos, you can’t really see the hilside any more! The sketch is still there, just a bit buried! (click on photo to see it larger):
I had fun cutting out the castle, as it’s a very well known image around here – it’s the symbol for the district council and it’s on lots of bus stop signs, local produce packaging etc. I also painted and cut out the ‘castle’ lettering, as I didn’t have anything left in my stash that worked:
My daughter absolutely loves going to the castle, and I posted a while back about this day when we went on a mummy-daughter adventure there (see the post here).
(Just had a ‘how dumb am I?’ moment – I searched the internet for ages earlier, to find a good photo of the castle to copy for my collage, and there was one I’d taken smack bang at the top of that post. Doh!)
Little miss has a bit of a cough and a runny nose at the moment, and she was feeling a bit sorry for herself this afternoon. We watched a couple of films: Peter Pan and Cinderella. All my disney videos are getting a bit worn out, The Little Mermaid tape squeaks while it plays! Think I’ll have to invest in some dvd’s!
