Just The One?

31 posts in October – maybe just this one in November!!

Hard to believe but about midway through November I started to miss Inktober, so maybe I’ll need to rescind that ‘never again’!

Inktober 2015

Inktober 2015

I put together a collage of the sketches, printed and framed it.  When I look at it I can recall where I was each day and what inspired each sketch.  A validation of visual diary keeping – not that I’m contemplating 365 sketches a year!

I found doing the daily sketches and posts left little time for ‘works of art’ during October but I’ve noticed I’ve readily found more time for creating this month – a spin off effect I think.  During this month I’ve designed a number of new cards and produced several watercolour paintings – some inspired by my Inktober sketches.  I have material to post and products to market.

So maybe I will do Inktober 2016 after all.

At Last! – #Inktober 31

I don’t think I’ve ever looked forward to the last day of a month so much!

Happy Halloween! - #Inktober 31

A big thank you to friends, family and fellow bloggers who have liked and commented through the month, it was really encouraging – and despite my bemusement as to why I participated in Inktober 2015, I’m glad I did!

Framed – #Inktober 26

I read once that the four most important lines in a composition are the borders.  The focus of my day on the 26th was on selecting frames for art works.  Now I’m thinking maybe it’s the framing that’s most important – and maybe it’d be better to make art to suit the frame!

Also, thinking that maybe it’s better not to show up if one didn’t put much time into the day’s sketch for Inktober!
