Sketching #159

CPP Response #159: Red
CPP Response #159: Red

I spent some time today catching up on a couple of prompts. I am continuing my series of this little curly haired girl in her various colored dresses. I really only had about half an hour, but drew out three responses. I had them planned out in my mind to a certain extent so it was easier. I like to formulate the idea in my mind before I sit down and draw it, then I can just worry about the details.

Just spend 5 minutes working to develop your creative habit. It takes patience, but you can do it. You can start with the original prompt.

Then, please post the direct URL (link) where your drawing, doodle, artwork is posted (e.g. your blog, Flickr) in the comments area of the original prompt post. Keeping all the artwork together provides a way for others to see the gamut of responses. It is also a great showcase for your work and  way for people to find a link your blog or website.

The Creative Prompt Project, also, has a Flickr group, to which you can join to post your responses. Are you already a member? I created that spot so those of you without blogs or websites would be able to participate as well. Please join and look at all of the great artwork that people have posted.

Block-a-Long #58: Fat Rectangle

Fat Rectangle #58

This is a play off of#56 and #57. the rectangle is fatter than my normal favorite, but the blocks are on the small side, so you don’t need to worry.

The directions for this block, Fat Rectangle #58 are posted.

If you have made blocks or a quilt from these patterns, please post a link in the comments section of the relevant block or on the AQ Block-a-Long Flickr group. I would love to see what you have made.

Nota bene: We are closing in on the end of the AQ Block-a-Long. I am starting to repeat myself and run out of fresh ideas that aren’t completely bizarre. Since this has not been very popular, I don’t feel bad about ending it. I am going to try and make it to #60 so you have an even number with which to work, but we will see.
