Last night the latest Quirky Crafts challenge went life – this time the brief was to use some sort of winged creature, and to incorporate clouds somewhere. For the original challenge post, click here.
So this week, instead of a card or a journal page, I created this fun little doodle:
I used the ‘Ava Fairy’ digital stamp from Bugaboo as the starting point, and added patterns and doodles using four different black pens (a felt tip, a gel pen, a 0.1 drawing pen and a 0.3 drawing pen) for a bit of whimsical line variety. The colour came from my fantabulous Prismacolor pencils (I still maintain that they are the BEST Christmas present ever!) and the quote around the edges reads “Something opens our wings. Something makes boredom and hurt disappear. Someone fills the cup in front of us.” (-Rumi).
Looking at this drawing now, I can really see the influences of the ‘Whimsy and Wonder’ art workshop I’ve been taking part in (I’ll share details with you later in the week). I just love the simplicity, and child-like dreaminess of the whole scene…At one point I thought I might stick this on the front of a card, but I might want to keep her and paste her into my journal… what do you reckon?
If you make anything with a wing and a cloud on it, swing by and link it up to our challenge for a chance to win one of the prizes donated by our sponsors. It could be anything… a card, a scrapbook page, a tapestry, a sketch, a sculpture, a bookmark, a soft toy, a mural… Seriously, anything.
