Summer challenge #3


Hi everyone! How are you?  This drawing was for Summer Challenge
#3 which is "Draw Something." So I was thinking about what I could draw
and I love pigs, I think they're so could anyone eat them? So I
decided to draw a pig! I named her Jeanine. I'm obviously not a professional
drawer but I love to draw so I'd love for you to comment and tell me what you think!
I added a bit of shading in places but not too much so it doesn't look
over-shaded.  I also drew some little pieces of grass and flowers at the bottom
of the page so that it gives the pig a bit of grounding rather than it just
floating. I'm really happy with how it turned out and I'm definitely going to
 do some more drawings!
Thanks for visiting my blog, I'll see you soon!

Summer Challenge #2

Hello everyone! Are you having a good week?
Today I'm sharing challenge #2 of my Summer craft challenge! The theme
 is to "Craft something Christmas." I love making things Christmas and me
 and Mum always decorate the mantelpiece in the living room. It's so much fun!   
Today I would like you to meet Betty the Snowlady! Isn't she adorable!
 She's so quick & easy to make, I used a white sock, some string, a packet of 
rice, a piece of fabric, some buttons and a few little gems.  I think she's going
to be the Mum to a whole family of little snowmen!
I think  next time we're going to get thicker socks because so the body will
look as white as the hat but I'm really happy with it for a 1st attempt, 
If you want to have a go at making your own Betty let me know & I'll show
you how I made mine.
I would love to enter Betty into some challenges.

Challenges I'm entering:

The Summer Challenge Begins...

Hi everyone! I hope you're all okay and enjoying the week. I'm
so sorry I haven't blogged in over a month...I'm such a bad blogger
but, I've got something that should keep my blog updated and hopefully
get me some more followers! I broke up from school a week ago so I've had a
week off already but I've still got over 6 weeks left! I'm loving the holidays
so far but I've been quite bored so my mum came up with a summer challenge
for me to do. She'd been planning it for a while and when she eventually
told me about it, I was so happy! I've got 18 challenges that I'm going to do and
 blog every other day. The challenges are crafting, sewing, baking, drawing,
 reading, writing, it basically covers everything I love to do! I'm hoping
 that because I'll be blogging a few times a week, it will get me
more followers! Once I've completed a challenge, I make like a
scrapbook page on that challenge.
The first challenge was to make a journal cover. I made the
cover using some 12x12 papers out of my mum's stash, I wanted to
add a bit of texture and 3dness, if that's a word lol, so I took a scrap
of another piece of the same paper and cut around the flowers and
stuck them onto the ones that were already on the page. I added
a couple of embellies that I love the look of!
Overall, I'm really happy with how it turned out and I
can't wait to do some more challenges! So make sure
to check back every couple of days to see what I've done.
Thanks for visiting my blog, see you soon!
