This weeks contest at Spoonflower is 'wellies and galoshes'. I actually prefer the jumble of wellies below but I entered the top one in the contest. Which do you prefer?

I've got a couple of my little illustrations as part of a collage in 'the caterpillar', a magazine for children. My drawings are the bird writing and the plug/socket. Visit their website here.
Doodles in my sketchbook.
I recycled some washi tape [stuck on with glue stick], the lines were made with aquamarkers and water.
Aquamarkers, brusho and metallic posca pens
My friend had bought a silhouette cutting machine and she gave me a demonstration by cutting out the pink buttons. I don't like what I have done with them but the buttons are nice.
The page below shows what I did with the off cuts [the pink bits] from the buttons. There were also lots of dots......

It was a nice spring day today so I spent a few hours in the garden trying to put some order to the mess. We recently had a large tree cut down [I loved that tree but it was far too big for the garden], the fence blew over and we got a replacement, then it was painted - which led to a lot of trampled and damaged plants and lots of logs to sort out.
I did have a few tulips in my garden, but I've not seen any this year - yet, and there have been less daffodils than normal too. Maybe things will grow better now the big tree is gone.

I thought I would do the side of a head in a different way, weird eh?
I used the mirror tool in sketchbook pro on my tablet. I used pixlr-o-matic on the background for the starry effects.

During January I had an urge to do a painting and this is the result.
I used watercolour paper and acrylic paints. I collaged on parts of book pages to start with and after painting I stamped with miscellaneous items. I forgot about it but looking at it now with fresh eyes I'm thinking maybe it would benefit from stitching on it as well.

There are no more pages to show you but I had a few more images of the book as a whole I thought I would share. As I used rings to keep the pages together I could easily add more pages, although if I did that it may not close together to well.

This page is made up of an art background with hand made washi tape strips on the top. I used vintage buttons which I applied with embroidery. Stitched around the edges.
This is one of my digitally altered photos I created a few years ago and the button is an art button I created with a recycled envelope. Stitched around the edges.
Painted and stamped using handmade stamps and painted doily. Various art buttons - I used inkjet and laser prints. Stitched around the edges.
The back cover - painted, stamped, outlined. There are no real buttons on the back.
