We took advantage going around for a lunch at the Byward market to take some pics with my iPad. This is a fun challenge to have your family and friends involved during your day!

Postcard from Ottawa:
I choose to take my iPad with me for the challenge. Back home I work on my laptop to make a post card :0 I took some old doodling from my sketch book to complete this new challenge!  Actually the subject is perfect to cheer again 150 anniversary in Ottawa.


Here my first picture:


A quick doodling

For the front of my postal card I did combine my photo mixed with my digital drawing. One part of the museum is a digital drawing! :)

Before starting school! Upcycle is always a fun project for summer!

Here a project I did in my backyard  in july, Yep we are already august.

 I have that metal table and chairs in my backyard that I was to throw in garbage. With my little boy we decided to paint it we spray can and we use also my old stencils. Why not! It was fun we did it spontaneously really fast too! It actually made the little corner of backyards more joyful and colored for our short summer. Again, I could not help but see a design pattern on this new table! ;)








Some detail of my table!









Don't forget  to walk around your house you maybe have a little project waiting just for you! :)
