Friday is #dangleday as often as I can create one.
This Fridays design features stylised hawthorn blossom and daisies, along with hearts, leaves and berries. Oh, and a pastel feather.
It would make a charming piece of framed art, or a greetings card, or a cover page for May for a BuJo, planner or journal. I’m sure there’s many other uses that the design, or parts of it, can be put to.
If you have any ideas for how this design could be used add a comment, or visit my facebook page – Angela Porter Illustrator – and drop me a line there. You could also try tweeting me @wyrdsmithing if you wish too.
It’s been a nice way to start the day, and to get those #weekendvibes working. I started by doing a quick sketch of the design on paper, scanned in, inked in using Autodesk Sketchbook Pro on my Microsoft Surface Book using my Microsoft Surface Pen, and then simply coloured with some texture added.
It helps me to calm down a bit; there’s still a lot of anxiety floating around my body after the saga of my car, and I’m waiting for a call back from sales about the possibility of me having a new smartcar. I find it all very stressful, even though there’s a part of me that’s very calm, the surface emotions are all over the place, sometimes overwhelming me like an emotional tsunami. Having poor sleep because of the anxiety isn’t helping too much.
I just remind myself to breathe, that ‘this too shall pass’, and find things to do that help me calm.
Talking of calming down, over on the facebook group ‘Angela Porter’s Coloring Book Fans it’s #furbabyfriday. Why not pop over and join in the fun with the lovely group members there?
