Good Saturday Morning Ladies,
First up today I am so exciting to share with you Karen's Incredibly Cute Reindeer,
Karen crocheted the reindeer following a Kerry Lord pattern that she bought at John Lewis. I think that he is the cutest reindeer ever, just look at his expression, Karen your crochet skills are amazing, I look forward to seeing your next project, mind you it will a while choosing all of the different options of head, body, legs from the amazing Edward's Menagerie, also by Kerry Lord. Thank you so much for sharing your Reindeer with us xxxx
Now I feel a little indulgent with the next feature, I want to share with you some of Sophie's A level Artwork, we are so proud of what both our girls have acheived ,
we had huge smiles on our faces as our girls received their Awards last night, we have been to every single award night at their school from when Matt started back in 2004. Anyway, I digress here is some of Sophie's amazing artwork...........
Drawings showing Muscle Definition, you may all recognise
Paul from the photos (hahaha)
Artist Style: Michaelangelo
Guy Denning is the Artist this work is based on, he experiments
with charcoal, oil paints and chalk on different surfaces as Sophie has done
here using Cardboard.
Casey Baugh is the Artist these pieces are based on,
his style is described as "A narrative impressionistic realism"
he specialises in Oil paintings and charcoal.
Sophie's main piece was created by rubbing charcoal into
cartridge paper, then using it to add definition around facial features.
The bottom right photo is of a huge A2 piece Sophie did in same style.
Marc Powell is the artist Soph is studying for these pieces,
Powell reuses Old Envelopes as canvases to produce incredible
drawings, his drawings are mostly in Biro Pen, (which is Soph's favourite too)
his work usually incorporates original stamps, preserving a bit of history!
Soph has used a birthday card envelope and a music sheet as canvases for her Biro
drawings of her Grandad (Paul's Dad).
Sophie's latest review, that arrived yesterday shows that she is currently working at a 'A' grade for A level, not bad for the first term! We are so proud of your work Soph xx
I am just working on a couple more projects for your used dryer sheets, hilariously this meant that I went to the girls Award Evening with red stained hands! Video's coming soon!
I hope you have all enjoyed your challenge this week, I look forward to sharing your cards tomorrow.
Have a lovely weekend,
love and hugs,
