I'D FORGOTTEN I COULD DRAW
I was going to buy my soon to be 5 years old grand-daughter a birthday card when my DD3 said "don't do that - make her one!". Fair enough, thinks me, but I did come up against the problem of not really having any suitable stamps, so I went for nice simple flowers and a pink theme. These are some of my newest stamps (Poly Clear by Hero Arts) and at the moment they're turning up on everything! I was quite pleased with this when DD3 hove by again, looked over my shoulder and said "it's a bit grown up isn't it?". She's right of course, so I put it to one side saying "but I haven't got any stamps suitable for a little girl." DD3 said "well draw her a fairy or something" ... so I did. The first one was a bit wonky and I'd forgotten to use a waterproof pen, so I could colour it.
So anyway, I had another go and quite surprised myself - I'd forgotten I could draw! I used to do it a lot - landscapes and stuff - but haven't for years and years. I know its a bit cute and I'm always saying that I don't do cute but ... well its not about what I like here is it?
So DGD1 will be getting this fairy for her birthday and I have rediscovered my cute side (not)! Maybe I'll go and draw something else now .... or maybe I'll just lie in the garden for a bit and recover from my efforts?
