Snippet Sunday

At last, a full week on the creative front.  I finally finised the "Project of the Week" that I've had on my agenda since we got back from our holiday by the sea:  Make Junebug a bucket hat.

I used fabric from my stash, which means one side of the reversible hat is exactly like the last hat I made him, and the other is from one of the hooded towels I made from Sprout before she was born. Nothing like getting mileage out of one's purchase.

The model was not too pleased with having to wear the hat. Naturally.


I sketched quite a bit this week. Here's one page from my sketchbook. These are not for anything in particular, just playing around from my imagination, still working to let go of "how things look in real life":


And I (and J) helped Sprout create some clothes and wings for her paper dolls. These dolls ride llamas, complete with removable* Western saddles, btw, but I didn't get any photos of them. Alas.



I also did a lot of research about illustrating children's books--watching videos, tutorials, browsing sites for inspiration--and now I need to get back to finishing up the text.

* Sticky tack is the greatest thing for paper dolls, infinitely re-stickable yet mess-free. Way better than paper tabs that get weak and tear from overuse.
