routine cards

I just finished up some routine cards for a little friend of mine who is, hands down, one of the cutest kids I've ever met. His mom and I have been friends forever and it was super fun to personalize these for him. I used watercolour, coloured pencil and Micron pen on watercolour paper. Each card is hand laminated so they can be written on with dry erase marker or taped up and repositioned when needed.

She&Me: Butterflies

A little butterfly snack station.

"This is the forest bridge. It's a secret bridge."
My daughter was super excited to come with me to the latest sketch event with KW Urban Sketchers at the Cambridge Butterfly Conservatory. Once we were there, she literally sketched circles around me. She found what she liked, sketched it and moved on. I had to really bust out of my comfort zone by only having 15 minutes for a sketch before we moved to find something else to draw. Tons of stuff going on around us (Quails! Turtles! Giant fish! A waterfall!) and lots of people interested in what our group was doing.

Me: pencil, Micron pen, Cotman watercolors.
She: Crayola markers, crayon, glitter gel pen.
After-snack: chocolate milk, blueberry muffin, plain chips.
