Hand Painted Gift Bags

I made the bags from A3 sheets of paper. They were painted with brusho, stamped [candle stamp]. A couple of them had wax resist [candle] stars drawn on before painting. The cord for the handles was what I had in my stash saved from gifts etc.
I used them to carry the baubles I have shown previously for gifts.

Hand Crafted Silvery Baubles

I got the idea of using lace to decorate baubles from Pinterest. I decided to add the year too, the numbers were cut from fun foam.

Dogs









I wanted to refresh my drawing skills so thought I would copy all the drawings in the book '20 Ways to Draw a Cat and 44 other awesome animals' by Julia Kuo. I have used this book in the past but have usually copied the easy looking drawings or the ones that appealed to me most. As a challenge I am aiming to draw all the animals in the book even if they look complicated.

The bird with the hearts was not in the book, I copied a little ornament I have.

Chrysanthemums

Two new fabrics. 
I was inspired by a photo I took of a young chrysanthemum and did the drawing on my computer. For the background I altered a piece of art work. The background is also available without the flowers.
