Living Arrows 2015: 35/52


Living Arrows: a little moment of the week to pause, savour and treasure

Space for the Butterflies - Living Arrows

We signed up to Jennie Maizels’ wonderful Sketchbook Club as soon as it opened and set to drawing our houses, but we never quite found the time to do more than sketching while we were away.  Since we’ve got back we’ve been making up for lost time with early morning drawing sessions.  Kitty is about half way through hers, H has finished inking in his houses and it just waiting to do the background, and thanks to an early morning with Miss Elma, mine is finished.

Elma at two and a half isn’t really up to drawing houses, so she’s been colouring in our inspiration sheets, and then painted them, and herself, wonderfully blue with my leftover paint, before helping me out with some French clouds and some very excited scissoring.

    Love the finished sketch. N would be very jealous at Elma being allowed to use scissors like that. He’s an enthusiastic cutter too – just a shame we end up with little bits everywhere.

      oh we do too, I’ve just accepted that that’s part of cutting – and we have a really great hoover!

    Sounds like a fab little project.

    Love the photos, looks like Elma is getting stuck in. 🙂 #LivingArrows

      oh she loves it, and she really loves being allowed to play with scissors!

    She looks so incredibly grown up! x

      All three of them seem to have done a huge amount of growing up over the summer, it’s quite incredible the change since July!

    Looks like you have a very enthusiastic helper! She looks so grown up all of a sudden, I think it seems to suddenly happen over the summer! Thanks for linking up x

      Both the littlest two have really seemed to grow up over the summer, Kitty is less changed, but still got a chunk taller – it’ a good job I bought big uniform!

    Such a great age to enjoy scissors! Love that picture too.
