I was extremely inspired by Laura’s challenge this week, and liked the idea of celebrating milestones, achievements and events in children’s lives by stringing beautiful beads to one another 🙂 Click here to check out the work this amazing charity does among children with life-limiting and terminal conditions.
This appealed to me for many reasons –
• as a mum of children with Special Needs, I come into contact regularly with kids affected by heart wrenching conditions and illnesses…and love that I can draw alongside them and their parents, having a measure and a bit of a grasp on what it’s like to live with these conditions on a daily basis.
• I love, LOVE curvy, shiny, beautiful glass/ wooden/ clay beads!!
• …oh. And bling in general.
• I so enjoy drawing curvy shapes and trying to make them as shiny and beautiful as I can… simple pleasures…!
So for all it’s worth, here is my humble offering to add to the weekly slideshow (- I hope…)
*NB: I’m not sure how i feel about this one yet. And, oh how I wish I could get the hang of shading.*
Hope y’all like it…
