I'm late, I'm late for a very important date (Summer of Colour)

I'm so late this week!! I have a million things to knit which seems to be taking up most of my time at the moment! I have two birthday presents that I really need to get a move on with!! I finally managed to find some time to sit down and think about what I was going to do for week four!! I LOVED the colours so there was no problem there! But I really wanted to to do something different each week!! So I thought and I thought and then I had a brain wave!!

On one of the lovely Blogs I've commented on during this summer of colour I have seen some really lovely zentangle style drawings! I'm really really sorry but I can't think of the name of the Blog just now!! When I do I will come back and link to it, or if you are reading this and you know it's you let me know :-P They usually do the zentangles in animal shapes which is just so damn cool! It might not even have been an actual zentangle but that is what it reminded me of and I love it!!

So I went on google and watched some you tube vids and decided to have a go.....well why not!!

This is what I came up with!I'm quite pleased with this! I obviously need some practise as this is literally my first ever attempt!! Me being me I couldn't just go for a plain old square like the you tube videos said you should start with :-P What do you guys think?? I'm deffo going to be trying this one again!!

So there you have it!! On to next week!! Man have you seen the colour?? I CAN NOT WAIT!! It's REEEEEDDDDDD! Totally my fave colour ever in the world :-D

I'm off to work now but will be having a nose at the rest of week fours art when I get back!!

Summer of Colour (Strawberry and Lemonade Punch)

Hi guys :-)

This weeks summer of colour challenge was again a bit of a challenge for me! Mainly because I just haven't had the time to sit down and think properly about it!! The easiest route seemed to be to go literal again so that is what I did!!

I kind of like the colours in this but its not as creative as I would like!! Last time I said I felt like I should apologise but I won't do that this time! I will pick out what I like best about it! I really like the swirly pattern (I like swirly patterns, what can is ay :-p) and I love how the yellow and green go together!! I used my Moleskine again which is good as its pages are finally being filled!! I would like to start using the back of the pages but I have this thing about doing that......I'm the same with notebooks haha!! I also used pencils! I need better quality pencils I think but the colours are nice!!

So on to next week :-) I've seen the prompt which is Wild n reckless sherbet! This is a very funky coloured icecream which once again makes my mouth water :-P The good news is I already have some ideas so hopefully I will be able to produce something I am more happy with :-D

On a completely different is a photo of my Cat Lupin.....

She was trying to sunbathe but having trouble what with the lack of sun :-P Ahhh isn't she the cutest?!?

Anyway I am off to look at some strawberry lemonade punch art :-D All this talk of ice cream really makes me wnat a bowl...yum!!
