This is an old trick I showed you how to do years ago,
when we used to have the Classrooms on TV, remember?
Really easy, but do it on scrap first.
Draw a little heart and black it in.
Give the heart a little head, and black it in.
Tiny flick for the beak and two flicks for the tail.
Now add all his mates.
These little birds always make me smile when I draw them.
I’ll revisit the old boat trick next week, too…
Now for the words: F R I E N D S
The little birds on the wire tie it in now.
Nice and simple.
Squiggle lines randomly around the picture with the black pen.
Colour in the overlap areas in blues and greys.
Have I got a finished card?
We gave it to our friends Debby and Gill on Friday evening.
They are emigrating to warmer climes, to Texas.
I shall miss them muchly. Already do.
I love them, I love spending time with them and I love their energy.
But hey! Texas isn’t a million miles away!
It’s just not up the road is all.
And this is when Facetime, Skype and Facebook are Godsends!
How did we deal with the distance before ???
And ultimately, if they are happy, then I am happy.
So I hope you will join me in wishing them
a safe trip and Happy days.
One more thing:
It’s Debby’s birthday today too!
Can we all sing HAPPY BIRTHDAY together?
And how about clapping along with Pharrell?
That always make me happy when I’m feeling blue.
