Scooter Girl in Polanco

🏫🏢🏣🏥🏩HI BEAUTIES! AS YOU SEE, EVERY SCENE IN THE CITY CAN BE A GOOD REASON TO SKETCH.

Melanie Franz

Plenty people going around on scooters. I probably would do the same as traffic during rush hour is quite terrible. At least then you have a chance to make your way through.

I once made the mistake to take a cab when it started raining during rush our, which made the traffic pretty much come to a total stand still. It took us 20 min to cover about 300 metres, but for some reason I was also too lazy to get out of the car.

I have o admit I really did not pay attention to detail while doing the perspective and background on this one. I was watching a movie. So the lines are all over the place.

New Look 6487

HELLO SISTERS! IT’S TIME FOR AN EMBROIDERED DRESS. A REAL WHIM FOR OUR CLOSET😉

THORNBERRY

If I keep posting once each day, I might actually get my 2018 sewing up to date before the end of 2018!  That’s incentive!  This dress was sewn for Clare back in September.

There’s every chance that there will be way too many photos in this blog post, because I love this dress so much!

The pattern is New Look 6487, one of their ‘sized for tweens’ patterns.  From their website: Girls’ shirt dresses are adorable in chambray and shirting fabrics. Pattern features collarless dress with long sleeves and shirttail hem, or gathered skirt with appliques. Collared sleeveless dress can have shirttail hem with belt or gathered skirt.

I picked up the fabric at Spotlight.  I called in to one of their larger stores one day after dropping the girls off at a Guide camp.  This embroidered chambray jumped out at me, with one of my girls in mind.

What Fun! Big Draw Lobethal

Well dears! “Sketching and sewing”. Today this is the key. Enjoy !

Belinda Broughton

What a day, what a weekend! The opening of our Big Draw Lobethal drawing festival was today. Here is Veronica Osborn-Jefferis’s beautiful hands as she draws on fabric with a sewing machine.

And some of her display pieces:

Meanwhile everyone got into wall drawing, charcoal in this case:

Here are some of Joshua Lamborn’s drawings in metal:

And Barbara Millward’s drawing of a hand in wire:

What wonderful line.

Melinda Rankin, who is the new director of the art and heritage space, was our opening speaker. She talked (among other things) of how we draw naturally when we are children, and often lose our confidence somehow. But that it is an innate urge, that kids will do it with whatever is at hand: textas, ‘flour-covered hands’. Here in Melinda in full swing, urging us all to, ‘ Go play!’

There will be four more weekends, different Artists in Residence each…

Wildly beautiful!

I used packing tape to copy partial images from clothing catalogs and other magazines.

Below is one more… a lady and her little dog:

It was fun to use different dress descriptions from a clothing catalog and make them into one!

I hope these collages give you a smile today!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Kikwi Book Number 1(pages 1-9).

👧👦HELLO DEARS! WE SHOULDN’T LOSE OUR CHILDHOOD SOUL. THIS IS SO INTERESTING FOR GENUINE SKETCHERS 😊

Dayna's Blog

Page 1For this post I am going all the way back to February of this year. It’s funny how much my daughter’s skills have changed in just a few months. I forget how well she writes–back in February she was only using a few words in her drawings, and now she is writing whole pages. This was the first of the four Kikwi books she made. I had bought her one of those mini notebooks at Dollarama or somewhere, and she promptly filled it up with these very intricate comic-style stories about Kikwis (from The Legend of Zelda video game), along with some other mash-up references from anything she was into at the moment. The other main character she uses is actually Link (also from Legend of Zelda), but when she and my husband were playing the game he renamed Link “Lamesauce”, as Dads are apt to do, and the name stuck. So Lamesauce features heavily in her Kikwi stories.

There are 60…
