Good morning you all! Today is Sunday, the sun is shining, and that means sketch time over at Sophia's *Blue Chair Diary*
I made some sketches this week from some photos. Well, I tried. I have a lovely photo of my great Aunt taken when she was 18. I made 2 sketches of it, but tried in the first one to show her at the time when I best remember her, when she was between 60 and 70, but I drew here in the same dress she was wearing with 18. The second one is (or should have been!) as she was at the time.
The first sketch has been made with sepia drawing chalks, the second one with water-colour pencils and I have realised that I am totally out of practice with sketching, haven't done enough lately!
And then I tried a sketch from one of my childhood photos. I used pencil and water colour pencils. I think it's not bad, but on the other hand it's not good, so I think I have to start doing an hour's sketching each day to get back into practice.
And yesterday I received a parcel from Canada, sent to me by Leslie of *Harmony Road Studio*, way back in May when she was giving away a blog candy. And now, after 2 months, it arrived at last, brought today by a friendly postie (the other one has probably got his day off!) Thank you Lesley, for all of my lovely goodies! What a feast for the eyes to see so many good things, including the smallest album I have ever seen, stamps, lace and borders,flourishes an altered domino, a wonderful pocket album, and lots of goodies to make myself, including a grunge paper album, key rings and...and.... Thank you soooooooooooo much. With all the goodies I have received in the last 2 days, I should have enough to do in the next few days....
So, that was it for today. Have a good Sunday, take care, and thanks for visiting!
