My sister sent me some lovely prezzies and a couple of them were tucked away in this lovely giftbox that I just had to draw. It was relatively quick and simple though I did use at least seven reds (and a purple) on it. Next I might draw a couple of the gifts that were hidden in this little treasure chest :)
This was drawn especially for a good friend of mine -- for her adorable baby daughter who is sweetly nicknamed Sprig. For some odd reason it has taken me ages to do, this being the second attempt.
I'll include my first attempt here too ... didn't like it as it turned out too dark. I don't usually give up on a drawing (and I haven't really given up on this one yet!) but I am setting it aside for the moment:
Life is full at the moment. Summer sun, guests, gardening, household chores and trying to keep up with work in between it all. Not much time leftover for empty spaces. Have to try squeezing in some simple drawings pretty soon though, as I do need the therapy. Cheers.
Received news from Zazzle telling me that my "Fabulous At 40Rty Dark Card, has
been hand-picked as an example of creativity at its finest", and that out of the
billions of designs on Zazzle, this was chosen for being one of the
best. It will appear at the top of the 40th Birthday Cards page in the "Featured Designs" section for approximately 2 weeks.
