I swear I am not going to whine about my studies today. I bet you’re bored to death reading about it over & over, sorry! J

Remember in this random post, there's a photo of my girl Aisha holding her drawing?
She is really into art & drawing, but as of today, we have not sent her to any drawing/art classes. Reason is either we can’t afford it or the one we can always clashes with her other classes. But I never stopped encouraging her. I bought her the supplies and books and taught her to just draw either based on what she sees or what she imagines.
I told her, life itself is art. The only limit is your imagination…fly free and just draw and color to your heart desire, be inspired and in return, inspire others.
So here are a few of her drawings I manage to capture. I keep telling myself to frame them…am gonna make another Ikea trip soon for their affordable frames...
What do you think? Some of these were drawn when she was younger (8 to 9 years old). Her favourite medium at the moment is oil pastel because of its vibrant colors. Personally I love them all, but then again, I’m permanently biased :D
I am seriously thinking of setting up a personal gallery blog for her art & crafty stuff (she is also into sewing now I'll blog about it in another post). We might lose track of what she created in her younger years and I think having her collection in digital form is a great way to preserve her work & the memories. Will do that soon :)
The animals in the drawings are Aisha’s recent works. She learnt how to draw those using a great book by our local, hugely talented illustrator – Emila Yusof. The book, titled Seni Lukisan Haiwan Bersama Kak Emila, costs less than RM10 and such a great buy for my Aisha.
|Little Hanan of course wanna be part of the action too!|
Before I go, how’s the progress of your Swap project ladies?
I managed to cut & sewed mine and around 50% ready now. Can’t wait to get it done and send it to my lovely partner Ms Ajjah!
Get the sew on girls, thank you for reading and happy crafting! J
