A little obsessed.....

I think I am getting a little too obsessed drawing flowers on envelopes! I do find it very relaxing though. Think I will have to watch the rest of the videos on that workshop & find out what I'm supposed to be doing with them.

On my work desk today are some flowers I am drawing for Ro Bruhn's Flower Power workshop on 21 Secrets. We had to use recycled envelopes - the insides on some of these are patterned & had to use this side. Think they are going to be used for journalling at some point. Am really getting into these workshops - love watching the videos.
 I have posted some closer pics of the flowers below, so you can see how the pattern on the envelope gives the flowers some depth, also alters the colours a little. I have used a fine permanent marker to draw the flowers, coloured with ProMarkers & highlighted areas with the black pen & a white gelly roll pen. 
Head on over to Stamping Ground and have a nose what's on other people's work desks.
Off to watch the other videos - have a great day everyone.

Inspired by the Cathy Bluteau workshop on 21 Secrets here's my twinchie for Spring. I used the collage/doodle theme .I used some free papers from magazines for the background, found the tulips from the same magazine. I doodled a flower & some swirls, found the word Spring, coloured it with promarkers. Outlined around the edges with promarker.
I have entered this in:
Show us your Twinchies - Spring

Busy time

Hi has been a while since I last posted anything.
A few things have happened - I have retired from work - whoop! Keith has cut his hours at work down to 3 days - Mon, Tues, Wed - so we get long weekends together, which is working out great. Good to have a few days to do things together without being too tired etc.
A big thing I have done is PASSED MY DRIVING TEST!!! YAY!! Can't believe I put myself through that at my age, but now I've done it can't believe I haven't done it before now.
So I am tootling about - take Keith to work then tootle around doing things I have to do. I love it!
No doubt Keith finds it strange being driven instead of driving - good job his hair was already white!!
Another thing I am doing is the online 21 Secrets Workshops.
I have enjoyed looking around the different ones, but decided to start with Cathy Bluteau's Doodling Our Way - which is a combination of collage & doodling.
It took me a while to get going but once I did I really enjoyed it.
Here's what I did - hope you like it.
