I promise promise you will be delighted with your work and your very first page will be one you are really proud of.

My first attempt at #sketchbookclubhouses - module 1 of jenniemaizels' #sketchbookclub. The clouds have been cut from a magazine I've recently worked on (and yet to be glued down) and I managed to spill blue paint on the drawing but I enjoyed the first attempt. I think I'm going to try again before moving on to module 2. What do you think?? ...

Have started jenniemaizels' #sketchbookclub with my 7yrs old and 5yrs old as part of our #artclubmonday. I am hoping to boost my 7yrs old's drawing confidence with this project. He worries about perfection and placing things out of line too much. We had a shaky start with exclamations of disaster, but managed to persever and he is now so proud of the result "Put it on Instagram, mum!" I did have to help a little (adding the detailed paint), though I really did not want to "interfer", I decided helping a small amount and giving him the feeling of overall success was more important and am hoping that as we progress he will feel confident enough not to have to ask me for assitance. The whole process of sitting together and chatting or in being in amiable silence was wonderful. Can't wait for next week's session! 😊💙🎨 #sketchbookclubhouses ...

Rather randomly I signed up for jenniemaizels #sketchbookclub - really for something to do with Conor. But it seems he's more interested in Pokemon so I'm doodling houses on my own! #sketchbookclubhouses #motherhoodalive ...
