Handy Challenge

This weeks Diva Challenge was to  try some new medium to tangle with. I decided to pick up LT’s colouring box. I used his big fat Crayola felt tips and his thin felt tips too. Gosh it was hard work. I just couldn’t be intricate or careful with them at all. It was actually very frustrating. However I quite like my final result.

I hope the Diva lady doesn’t mind, but I took inspiration from her poorly thumb. I live in a house of clumsy people, I am one of them. In fact just ask my mother about some of the accidents and misfortunes I’ve had over the years. (Or LT for that matter! He had to go to hospital with sandwich up his nose and Welshtroll had to have multiple surgeries after jumping off a bench and breaking his leg. We’re just that family!) So I fully sympathise with your poor thumb! I hope it’s feeling better soon.

LT is back at school as of today, so I’m hoping that I will manage to get a bit more crafty stuff or doodling stuff done over the next few days. The weather here is rather bleak at the moment. (Though not as extreme as it is in many parts of the world!) Today we had rain, hail and snow all within minutes of each other and all taking it in turns over and over. So sods law says that LT will end up with a snow day and all my plans will be doomed!

 

Anyway! Thank you for reading and take care.

      Thank you, I hope she didn’t mind. My 5 year old announced this morning that it’s going to be winter forever! Now I come to think of it he does look a bit like Elsa from frozen 😉

    Well, I think your poorly thumb tangle is great, but it was your words here that cracked me up completely!! How can anyone have to go to hospital with a sandwich up their nose…..oh, wait, I had to go twice…once with a pea and once with a rolled up bus ticket up my nose…..! I feel very at home on your blog.

      haha! it’s nice to know we’re not the only accident prone family. And where else would you put the ticket! I’d hate to be that ticket inspector though! “scuse me young lady, may i see your ticket please?”

      I can’t get over how many different ways people have tangled, with different mediums and on different mediums. I’ve really enjoyed looking at what people have done, and it’s so nice talking to people who have done pics etc too.
