I expect, like me, many of you are in strict lockdown as the world struggles to contain the Covid-19 pandemic. I could not imagine living with social distancing measures in a built up, urban area. We are so fortunate in having countryside all around us. We can walk out of our front door and be up on the hill in the wood and across the fields well away from anyone else in minutes. Our wood on the top of Herne Hill is full of bird song and if you look hard squirrels, mice and voles are busy gathering food and nesting material. In the evening if you are really patient you might see the badgers and foxes out and about. In the fields the ewes and their lambs are grazing on the fresh spring grass.
The sheep always make me smile after they have been shorn, the babies look so much bigger than their mums!
Today I have a shaped and tactile card to share with you.
sheep: W1, W3, W5, W7
I have used the pens to colour the sheep's face, ears and legs using cotton wool for her fur. The image has buttons for eyes so I found buttons the same size and just stuck them over the top.
I coloured and cut out the image first then attached to a tent fold card overlapping the top and cut around again. Finally I stuck on the cotton wool and the buttons.
We have two great sponsors this month, and
This challenge, our optional twist is a focus on Furry or Feathery Friends. Animals can be such a comfort in our lives especially during this time when so many of us are isolated from our extended family and friends. This month create a project that honours the furry or feathery friends that surround you, whether in your home or in nature.
In order to be considered eligible for this month's prizes, remember that general types of projects/posts will not qualify for the prizes unless they are also positive, inspirational, motivational or encouraging in some nature. Prizes this month include:
- A $10 gift certificate from Oddball Art , our guest sponsor for this month, for a person chosen in a random draw based on all qualifying entrants.
- ONE image (value of $5 or less) from Scribbles Designs for the post or project that the team deems most inspiring of the bunch based on all qualifying entrants.
- One digital image from Creative Bug Digital SnapShots for each person chosen as a DT Delight.
With such a huge range of bird and animal images around why not give it a go and join in with our challenge. You can find all the details, the link for entries and more inspiration on the Path of Positivity Blog. Hope to see you there.
Thanks for dropping in. Take care and stay safe.
