Time flies, doesn't it? Perhaps you have been wondering where I have been all this time, so I thought I would combine a speed drawing with some news about what I have been up to. So much has happened since my last video. Thank you to those of you who have subscribed, especially those who have been following my channel for a long time. Your support and encouragement means so much to me. I am feeling excited about making videos, and hope to have lots more coming your way soon. There are so many ideas in my head, if only there was more time!

I have been thinking of ways to make my jewellery look more unique, and I came up with the idea of using original ink and watercolour paintings as the focal point.
I will be adding items one by one in my shop as I finish them. Check them out and tell me what you think.

I'm happy to introduce my new 'Art Activity Cards' for all those keen doodlers out there. These are fun for children, teens, or adults. The 29 different activities are available for instant download on my Printables Page , or in my Etsy shop, for a very affordable price. I hope you enjoy them! I would also love to see any completed activities, feel free to share them with me on Facebook.
These would be great for teachers too! Please share with anyone who you think would like to use them.

Goodness, it has been a long time since my last post, but I am going to make it up to you all by posting three videos for you to enjoy. Two of the videos are proper tutorials with instructions ('Dangerous Doodles') and the other is just a fun experiment I painted a while ago. I hope they inspire you to pick up your paints or pens and go for it. As always I love to read your comments, wherever you choose to add them (Youtube, my blog, my website, facebook, twitter etc) and I can't wait to read what you think of my latest videos. Don't forget to subscribe to my newsletter, I am working on the next issue at this very moment (see the 'Swamp' link on the left sidebar of this blog). Newsletter subscribers are special because they get extra goodies :) You can also catch all the MM news by subscribing to my channel on Youtube, and liking my page on Facebook.
Here are the videos:

Sometimes I just grab whatever I can find and start drawing, especially if I am feeling stressed, or need to clear my mind. If I think too much about it, I will end up doing nothing, so I just begin quickly. This time I found a bit of cut up calico (natural unbleached cotton) and some permanent markers. This is what I ended up with. I now have quite of a collection of these random drawings on calico, which I keep in a display folder. I'm not sure what I will do with them but I am 'saving them for a rainy day' as they say...and knowing the weather in Wellington, where I live, I shouldn't have to wait that long! Maybe you have some ideas for what I should do with them? I would love to know...tell me in the comments below :)
