I made this design over at SketchbookSkool last November while studying 'Let's Make Greetings Cards' with Salli Swindell of They Draw and Cook. Salli was inspirational and I came away feeling so creatively nourished. Last September, my eldest son started at his new school and I was completely absorbed with helping him to settle in. So, this was the first painting I'd done for a while, having had a break for a good couple of months. It can be hard to get back into your creative groove if you stop for too long, however much you might love it. This class gave me permission to just create for fun, which was the perfect tonic and I've found it hard to put my brushes down again ever since!
