Grade 5 ballet

I’ve been in a grade 4 ballet class this year but last week I was asked if I would like to join the grade 5 class.

I wasn’t sure about it but I went to my first class today and loved it. It was the best class so far. I’ve gone from a class with twelve to a class of two so we’re going at a pace that suits me.

Still keeping the dream to do pointe work alive.

So thankful that I can do ballet as an adult.

Lights – Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light to my path

22nd July 2017, Gelatos and waterbrush on A3 cartridge paper

This was inspired by a picture I found on the net a couple years ago. I love the colours and the vibrancy.

Loving working with these different art supplies.

My first go at art sermon notes

Love this note-taking idea from Alana Bosgra. She calls them Sermon Scribbles.

I never read through my notes but this form of note-taking makes me want to flick through them. I love this visual style that helps me quickly find and remember key thoughts.

There were three meetings at church today so I had three chances to practice.

I like it so I’m going to buy a visual diary just for sermon art notes.

Writing

Finished the first edit

I’ve been without a car for a week while it gets fixed at the mechanic. So I’ve been getting dropped off at work at 7:30am each morning. This gives me two and a half hours to edit before I start work at 10am.

I love that it got me into an editing routine and now I’ve finished the first edit. Woohoo!!!

Originally it was 170,000 words and I’m to get it down to 100,000 by the end of the editing process. So far I’m at 138,ooo words.

The Dream Tree

The Dream Tree – Live big

11th July 2017, Prismacolor on A3 cartridge paper

I dreamt that I drew this picture.

The heart balloon, the balloons coming from the tree, the blacked out rainbow, and the stars.

Love how it turned out on paper.

I turned it into The Dream Tree and left a space on the side to write my dreams.
