And the next part ....

Hello again :)
Right on time today with posting the next mini kit of Celtic Magic.
I'm back to work and have just finished my shift at 3 pm, then rushed outside to water my plants and plant a few more seeds.
Now I need a cup of tea before I head into the kitchen to make some dinner. So I thought it's the perfect time while I sit down to post here.
I have had no time for any art work so far. Instead I spent time outdoors making the most of the lovely weather we currently have.
And my plants are thriving !
 The French Lavender, the pink Geranium and little Pansies are blooming ...
...the cabbage , herbs and all the others have grown...
Lettuce galore ...and in the crack in front an ant colony has now made their home. 
... potatoes , beans and broccoli at the back, tomatoes,  sweet peppers along the wall , also a mystery plant . I can't remember what I actually planted there,lol
And I just put some more seeds into the earth to grow.
I had to move the 2 other grow bags with potatoes because they were getting too large and bushy , stealing the light and space from the other plants.
We're supposed to have a storm coming tonight , I welcome some rain .It will save me having to water all this and more tomorrow.
I'm still not on the internet much .The gardening has taken over the free time I have in the moment . I really should get back into my art , but I can still do that when the weather turns bad again.

Right ! Enough of that now ...let me give you the freebie and then I head into the kitchen. My stomach starts to grumble ad says "feed me"

Today I give you the Air Element

Next week will be Spirit , and that's the last part of this kit
I already have another ex store kit lined up to give you. It will be a bit romantic, a bit vintage , a bit floral,a bit summer .... not saying anymore,lol
Till then
stay creative

I'm baaaaack ;)

Yeah, I've been away for a week , spending some time in Germany, visiting my parents and had a cracking time meeting my old friends from "back in the days". We had not seen each other in over 20 years , so you can imagine it was a great reunion :)
I blocked out the faces as I'm not sure whether they like having their pic published
It was a fun evening :)
I was not online for practically the whole week ...and it was peaceful ! Maybe I should do that more often.

Looks picturesque and peaceful....

....until these 2 come caveman style out of the bushes :)
Yup, that's my son and his girlfriend.

We had 30/85 degrees in Germany, but coming back to only 12/53 degrees in UK was a bit of a temperature shock.
Anyway, no art pictures this time , so I get to the download straight away now.
Today it's Celtic Magic Earth

We still have two more elements to go , so part 4 and 5 the next 2 weeks.Now I have laundry and all sorts of other exciting things to do . Until next post :)

...and here comes the next mini kit freebie

Hi ,
it's been a quite creative week for me despite work . But I will be off for 2 weeks now. :) Hooray !
Hope the weather will turn a bit nicer for this time.
So far I have kept up with the challenge I'm taking part in, but that might change ...depending on the weather. If it's nice I rather go out and do something out side than sitting at my desk.
A prompt each day and you can illustrate /draw/write which ever way you like.
This is my day 4 : Finetec watercolor and Stabilo pens

Day 5 Zentangle style with white gelly roll and artline white pen
Day 6: normal watercolor
Day 7 Tombow dual brush pens and outline Sharpie fineline
Day 8 also illustrated with Tombows
Day 9 in Typography style using Tombows
Next one done with Ecoline liquid watercolor
...and Tombows again , plus writing with Pentel touch sign pen

OK, now to the download . I promised you part 2 of Celtic Magic -Water
It comes in 3 parts

And now I'm off...lot's to do ! Catching up on the ever exiting dusting, cleaning etc before I chill and relax with whatever I like :)
Till next week

The last and the new ...

as promised I'm back with the last part of Printemps and the first of the Celtic Magic kit you're getting a whopping 3 files to download today .:)
Edna to answer your comment , the Illustrator dream is very much for when I retire from my "normal" job. Currently I just wouldn't find the time for it. But I'm using this time to learn more. Practice makes perfect,huh?
I will be signing up to Skillshare next month. For a monthly or yearly fee you become a member and can take as many online classes as you want . Check out what classes they have to offer here
And yes, there is an Illustrator class there as well , apart from lots of different art , design and photography classes. But also business , freelance , marketing , music ....hell, the choice is just endless !

I had a couple of highlights this week. First I got featured for taking part in the watercolor challenge ...
...and then I got contacted by the Art /Craft /Book store where I buy a lot of my stuff to work with , asking whether they could share the picture of the pencil case I made with one of their kits.:)
I wouldn't mind becoming an Affiliate , working with and showcasing their art and craft kits ,lol.

I'm still trying to catch up on some challenges. But I have the first 3 days of the Sure Simple challenge done.
Day 1 :Watercolor (Ecoline) and lettering (Pentel touch sign pen in black)
Day 2: Fine Tec watercolor
Day 3 in doodle style with Tombow dual brush pens

And as quite often while out and about these lovely blossoms caught my eye and camera :)
I just couldn't walk past without taking a picture or two ...

Even though it's still very cool for the time of year, these sure are a sign of spring .

OK, downloads now...
The last part

and here comes the "New" ... Celtic Magic Fire ... an ex store kit , now for free
Part 1and 2

Next up we extinguish the Fire ...with Water
So until next week again :)
