Brit abroad, from UK to USA. I like to art journal, bake, make books then fill them with art and move my butt at Pilates, yoga and spin class.
Portrait beauties from Art Club hosted by the ever fabulous @thegoodshipillustration! I managed some Mrs Squashed Potato heads and and ‘tall face’ strict teacher!! Even the ‘normal’ ones are wonky. 
Thanks ladies for a fab art club as usual! Now I am off to bleach my eyebrows…. 😂😳

I bought a giant roll of @strathmoreart paper and decided to make an accordion sketchbook using vintage book covers as the front and back. Where to measure and tear and fold? The @brentwood_public_library of course!!

Seed pods are starting to reveal themselves as the weather (slowly) starts to cool. So of course I decided to make a little stamp. Hopefully the first of many as I spot more seedy plants.

Indigo and Mushroom popped right into my head as soon as I read the colour combination from @snippetsofwhimsy
I think I want to hang out with these two and get to know them better and practice drawing them.

I made a pencil bag! I am so pleased with it! I followed a tutorial on @creativebug, used salvaged denim  from @elizabethbutler445 and vintage estate sale fabric for the liner.

The bracelet is made, wintery greys and dark wood with pink and purple trade beads fastened with an old mother of pearl button. It wraps my wrist or could be worn as a necklace. I do like versatile jewelry!

I have big plans to make a bracelet with beads from my ridiculous bead selection, to make a pencil bag with old jeans, start a new art journal in a vintage ledger, join in with @li.la.o mystery challenge and eat sticky toffee pudding Hob Nobs and Smartie buttons.  #goals
What are you up to this fine weekend?

Hair I’ve had. Are you a big hair changer or do you stick with the same style? I think my worst was a super tight perm in the early 90’s, nothing I could do about that apart from wait for it to grow out and calm down 😬.
