Our host for April is Sally over at Diario, so please do pop over to her blog to find out who else is playing along.
If you’ve been following my blog then it won’t have escaped your notice that I’ve been pretty busy on the sketching front, inspired by a wee scrap of a pup called Pebbles. This is technically a terrible photo, but I love it because it was a quiet moment at work on my birthday. Pebbles is prone to naughtiness, and when he’s been particularly naughty (breaking into the vegetable garden for the umpteenth time…) he earns himself a smacked bottom and then he’s ignored. He hates being ignored, and it leads to him grovelling for forgiveness. This photo is him trying to inveigle himself back into my good books… and as you can see from the hand reaching to stroke him, he was successful!
Something I made
Still haven’t added this to my shop, but it’s probably my favourite of all the books I made this month. The pages are a mixture of cartridge paper, watercolour paper and pastel paper, and the hard covers are bound with canvas – so you can draw inside and out!
One of my favourite colours, so I loved this topic! My favourite jacket is actually grey, but it’s got red and white polka dot edging in it, and I tend to wear it with this brooch (by the lovely Lise at Belle & the Bean, better known these days for her fabulous blog), and recently this scarf I picked up down Portobello Market.
I meant to take a photo of actual rocks, but got caught short (I forgot that April only has thirty days!) and this was a last minute substitute. Gravel, and York stone… cultivated rocks?
A really tricky topic for me! In the end I remembered that we have these little plant pots, which is the closest I could get to western…
Sally will be choosing her favourites in the next week or so, so please do remember to check her blog again later this month.
What’s happening next month with the Crafty Photo Scavenger Hunt? If the rota is to be believed then Jenna over at Timballoo is our host for May… but she’s just got married and I’m not sure if she’s away on honeymoon at the moment, so I need to double check! Keep an eye out here for updates.
