Hi friends! I hope you are having a good Sunday. I spent the day tackling some projects around the house (more on that later) and as promised I have a flip through of the sketchbooks I used on vacation as well as a completed one because I was not as prolific as I thought during my week off LOL!
Stuff I mentioned:
- Some of the sketches you see are available as real-time lessons over in Critique Club *You can scroll down to the curriculum and see a list of all the projects.
- Some time-lapses can be found by searching Sketchbook Sunday on my YouTube channel
- This is the loose watercolor flower workshop I mentioned
- And this is the comic faces video from Becca Hillburn at Natto Soup that I followed along with on the tiny face sketches.
Today I decided to tackle a couple of projects that have been grating on my nerves. The overstuffed living room coat closet (too many shoes, winter gear and a vacuum cleaner that attacks anyone who dares to open the door) and the front porch that had stuff stored on it that belonged in the garage and shed. The closet was pretty easy and now it is spacious, yay! Quick win! The porch took a couple of hours but I needed to take everything off it and wash it from top to bottom and hubby put the heavy stuff in it’s proper place. Now it is a lovely retreat! Somehow we had manged to collect 3 door mats on the porch: a Christmas one, a scrubbie one for mud season and a rubber welcome mat that was best suited for non winter. I wanted to use it but it was looking pretty shabby and my porch was so clean that I didn’t want a tired old mat on it.
So I grabbed some paint and sponge brushes and pounced color to match my house on the raised areas.
And viola! A practically new mat!
I love a good DIY! I hope you had a good day and til next time happy crafting!
