Gems, Doodles and Designer Papers….

Gems, Doodles and Designer Papers….

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Thought I’d shine a light on what we’re doing in the SHAC-Shack this week, and show you how well transferring our doodles to our Designer papers works…. I mentioned this morning that Stuart has put together a very cool Barb’s Faves Set and called it THE SHAC PACK!! It’s for those doodlers who want to dip their toe in this kind of artwork at a really good price! £10 for 50 sheet of 8×8…

Water Colour Toadstools !

Water Colour Toadstools !

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Just a quickie. So glad this morning’s water colour SHAC-Shack was well received! I think we’ll have a good week, developing those new ideas and perhaps trying them out on different subjects! I had a real hankering to colour in our toadstools from last week’s woods, but was way too busy with so much else all afternoon. I saw somebody else on facebook had done it too, beautifully, and wanted to try it even…

The Wendy House and the Owls

The Wendy House and the Owls

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Glorious day today. Found the PERFECT little place to sit and work on our owls, in readiness for the SHAC-Shack session tomorrow… Early in the morning, the sun shines in on the little Wendy House at the bottom of the garden. So I thought to myself, I thought, “right Mrs. You are going to set yourself up in that there little house for the morning, and enjoy your art. And I did. I have…

Hi there. Hope you are enjoying your weekend? I’ve been hanging out in Hawaii in my head, which is just great. Inking and doodling and colouring. So glad we are staying a second week. This doodle week has been a mammoth one! On the one hand perhaps we could have gone with just one photo, and kept it simple. But on the other hand, we had such blast, drew loads of new things, hibiscus, surf shacks, surfers, bamboo – and…

What a load of Cockadoodledoodle!

What a load of Cockadoodledoodle!

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. Friday already. Where did that week go? In fact, where have the past 9 weeks gone, since lockdown began 23rd March ?? It’s actually uncanny how quickly we humans adapt to new, changed circumstances, isn’t it? Friday’s blog a private peep, right? Well, I think that the daily doodles on Facebook Live have really opened a door into my private life! I’ve always been quite open, but our relationship – yours and mine –…

Ink & Brush Bloggy Special – and a Whole Heap of Gratitude!

Ink & Brush Bloggy Special – and a Whole Heap of Gratitude!

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Early start here – and feeling so much better for it! Lying in bed underneath the featherbed does not make it all go away; in fact, it seems to wriggle in under the duvet and start worming its way into my thoughts. So the best thing to do is…. GET UP AND MAKE A PLAN TO GET BUSY !!!! These are strange and frightening times. Our routines have been upended, completely capsized, and we…

Lockdown? Lockedout!!

Lockdown? Lockedout!!

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. Quite a day today! Have you ever left the house, and then just as the door closes, you realise you’ve left your keys on the kitchen table? With your phone? Yep, that was my first party piece today. Was all set to go out to my little SHAC-shack above the garage, to fire up the cameras and get going on our daily doodle session at 10am – and gasp. Locked out of the house….

Bobbing and Weaving!

Bobbing and Weaving!

Thanks for popping in. Such a busy day !! So much for hanging out in the garden and honing my Lino Cutting skills! Not this week anyway! Our SHAC SHACK daily doodling with the hot air balloon is coming along nicely, and tomorrow we’ll be adding a nice back drop. We got a great basket weave going today, didn’t we?! I nearly lost the plot there for a moment – but hey! It’s all just a bit of doodle fun…

Today we doodled a SHAC SHACK !!!

Hi there. Thanks for popping in. I hope you are ok, safe and coping okay with the way things are right now. And they are the way they are, so we may as well not fight it, and figure out a safe and sane way through this nightmare. Those of us who are doodling together every morning at 10am on Facebook Live have at least figured out a daily creative diversion, which gives us a little direction at the start…

HAPPY

Hi there, Thanks for popping in. It’s been a busy but very good day here above the garage in the Clarity SHAC-Shack. Our daily doodle workouts on Facebook LIVE at 10 am are doing me the power of good actually. And if they’re helping me deal with this self-isolation, then I imagine they’re helping you too. Every morning, as soon as I open my eyes, I have a direction. I know what I’m doing at 10am and where I have…
