The countdown – day 10

De Craftorij in Netherlands has a fantastic end year celebration, a countdown of 10 days, when we can play around, get ideas. So today is day 10 as it is a countdown and for the first challenge we need an A4 paper and some soft pastels or pencils to colour.

Paper check, pastels check. So next just pull a line on your sheet with a grey pencil, you know one that runs back to itself and grab the first pastel and 1,2, 3 colour!

Fun, fun, fun! Enjoyed so much and guess what, I was just beginning and my son asked for a piece of paper to get busy as well (would love to show it to you, but as a real artist’s kid says it is his work, so all right reserved sorry). My work ended up like that:

You know what, I like it so much that I am going to use it as a journal page background, I have an idea already! So if you would like to see what it becomes, stay tuned!

If you want to check what the De Craftorij has to offer to you don’t forget to visit their online store. And if you feel like playing around why don’t you join the Facebook group and make your own creation, there is time till midnight!

      Zsuzsa, it is just funny to hear things like that from his mouth, but that’s the way it goes, he heard it several times concerning my works, now he gets concerned about his, hehehe 😉
