EDM Challenge #116 - draw something green.

This is an ATC I painted for an ATC exchange but it definitely passes for this challenge.
I used watercolour pencil, acrylic, thin coloured markers and thick black marker on watercolour card.
I love the way it came out and may find it hard to part with!!

More EDM Challenges Completed!

EDM Chellenge #104 - draw some salt and pepper shakers. These are some little frog themed shakers Iwas given. I don't know why the bottom one looks so sad, perhaps he's the salt! Black pen and watercolour pencil. EDM Challenge #105 - Draw scissors. These are my trusty fiscars scissors I use all the time. They are covered in sticky bits of glue, paper and tape and I badly need a new pair. Great scissors for detail work! Black pen and watercolour pencil.
EDM Challenge #78 - Draw a souvineer of a place. This is a little kit I bought from the "stitches and craft" show a few years ago now. It stands about 5" tall. It came with all the bits and the material for the clothes and duck and a pattern. It was really cool to do and I am yet to find another craft kit this cool!! Black pen and watercolour.

A few EDM Challenges!

Every Day Matters is a yahoo group. They issue a weekly drawing challenge I try to participate in when I get some time. These are some catch up challenge drawings.

EDM Challenge #111 - Draw a bowl. Watercolour pencil and black pen on cartridge.
EDM Challenge #106 - draw something tart or sour. Watercolour pencil on cartridge.
EDM Challenge #109 - Draw a clock at your house. Anyone who knows me knows I collect frogs and all things froggy. It just so happens I have a froggy clock. This is a pretty cute fishing frog clock. Black pen and water colour pencil.
EDM Challenge #52 - Draw a dog and Challenge #62 - Complete a previous challenge in a different medium.
This is a water colour pencil drawing of my dog Molly. The eyes and ears are too small but it looks surprisingly similar to miss Molly!!
EDM Challenge #56 - Draw a self portrait. Kinda looks a little like me with a flat nose. Drawn with black pen and a little wash from the drawn lines.
