So I went for two more ordinary ideas: odd numbers - they are sparkly letter stickers, and odd balls -- those red, blue and white balls are the ones we treasured as children (medium Inktense pencils).
Now for my weekly catch up! I left off with engrave, so the next one is
Forest: I thought of drawing the box of chocolates from Forest Gump, but thought that was too much like chocolate so I got kind of ordinary here and just drew a little forest of trees (can you hear one fall?) I tried to get a little bunny in there but it was just too small. Medium: Prismacolour coloured pencils.
Figure: I spent many years figure skating as a child. True iconic Canadian, I grew up with an ice pond in my backyard and a front yard that froze over every year. I learned to skate as I learned to walk.. I belonged to two clubs at the same time but when it came time for private lessons, to my regret it simply wasn't in the budget. Medium: Prismacolour coloued pencils and silver gelly pen.
Game: I always wanted to own Boardwalk when playing Monopoly as a child, mostly because I liked to colour of the tile I think. It didn't often end up with me winning, that's for sure. Medium: coloured cardstock, Inktense pencils.
Gold: I seem to like doing the colours when they come up. Here is used a gold button and some sparkly scrapbook paper. The hardest part, as usual, was taking a picture of it so the shine came through.
Head: I got very ordinary here again and tried to draw a head in a one inch square, My vanity wants to assure you I can draw heads more or less properly, if given enough room! Then I decided to use another idea from the 4H club, which stands for Head. Heart, Hands and Health. It's a sort of country-wide agricultural club. I joined because I wanted to have a horse, even though we couldn't afford it.
Hot: I love hot air balloons, although I don't think you'd ever get me up in one! They are so beautiful as they float across the sky. Medium: gelly pens, brown pigma micron, Prismacolors.
That's enough for this week. More to come.
