I can't quite believe that the Summer has arrived! It only seems like yesterday that my eldest was starting at Secondary School and here we are at the end of the first year already! I know I have been busy, but time does seem to have flown by!
I always seem to find it rather tricky to fit creativity into the Summer break as there are lots of things to do, and 3 kids to keep occupied, but I have set myself a mini challenge this time round to see if it helps me to continue with my creative process as well as enjoying the kids being at home.
So! I have decided to try and keep a sketchbook of face designs over the break-exploring and developing my whimsy faces. The sketchbook is fairly small so I am not giving myself a huge task to achieve each time, but I am going to try and carve a bit of time every week to keep my creativity flowing.
Funnily enough, it seems to have already helped me to keep my focus! Because I haven't 'written off' being creative in my head I have taken quite a few photos of things that have inspired me over the last few days, which has also been lovely!
So there's my plan! I have finished my first face, so that's a good start! Let's see how many faces I can create in the next six weeks! You are very welcome to join me on this challenge too! Would be fantastic to see how you get on! :-)
Hope you all have a joy filled summer break!
