So I’ve finally finished the handmade bookmark for my son. Yay! He was really pleased with it and is already enjoying using it.
Here’s what it looks like now that it’s finished:
I suggested that he choose his own ribbon and he chose one that had ‘with love’ printed on it I decided to laminate it in the hopes that it would last a bit longer and not get bent and broken too quickly but my son assures me that he knows how much work I put into it and that he will look after it. I won’t hold it against him if he can’t though as it will give me an excuse to make another one for him!

Here are some line drawings that are waiting to be painted. I’m usually inspired by a sketch in my notebook, then I draw something similar on a piece of khadi paper, outline it in black ink and then eventually paint it!
Here’s the first one, which was actually inspired by a painting that I completed for a customer:
Here is the painting that inspired it below:

Here’s the other line drawing:
The above will probably be a part of my Serenity, Joy Art Series when it’s finished but I’m not sure yet. It was inspired by the pencil drawing below from my sketchbook:
I must say though that I like the sketch better! I may have to redo that line drawing until I like it as much as the sketch
