Snippet Sunday

I was a sketching fool this week, so much so that on Thursday I thought it must already by Sunday and time to post something.  I also pinned a ton of reference photos and sketching exercises to help me work on a style that will appeal to kiddos as well as myself. I have never excelled at "cartoony" illustration and I'm not sure that I will this time, or even that I want to. Whatever I come up with has to be me.

As usual, I didn't get around to taking photos, even though I have some stuff that is non-spoilery and would have worked for a snippet.  I, however, take a photo of a craft I did with Sprout and will share that instead:

Behold, unicorns:

Sprout is very into unicorns at the moment (in fact she just used the magic in her horn to transform me into a unicorn, too), so when I saw this craft on The Artful Parent from the book Happy Handmade, I knew I had to do it with her.

I love the faces! This is a sweet craft--love the feather wings, love the three-dimensionality of it.

She has had so much fun with them that I've had to get the glue gun out a couple of times. :P

Nothing like an upcycled toilet paper roll, huh? I think we'll have to make some more soon because she really loved them.

Thanks. They were fun to make but not so easy for Sprout to really help out with because the cardboard was hard to cut and the glue gun too dangerous. :P
