Day 3

Woah, almost missed this one (England time, its only 45 minutes till day 4 starts :P)
To tell you the honest truth, I struggled with this prompt. Not with who I would write about, but how to draw them. I did about a gazillion sketches of use together in different styles. Then I scrapped that idea and did a cartoon picture of her next to some writing. I didn't like that, so I kept trying. I almost gave up. But I didnt want to fail myself by not completing the challenge. So then I added some lined paper which I sewed around, and then I drew some simple paint by numbers inspired flowers which I coloured in felt tip. Hoorah! Finally, I was pleased with it :) So happy I didnt go with the design before which I very almost did. I love this page now, it is so simple but lovely :) The flowers represent my twin sister perfectly, because she is so beautiful and elegant. Not that she thinks so, but she is :)
If we work through our bad patches, when we feel like throwing in the towel, or that our mojo just isnt working, battle through. Dont give up.
Love,
Katie
