Winter woodland with stuff found in the garden. What worked well: dead leaves, Moss, Red berries and waxy green leaves not good. @64M_Artists @elaru #64MillionArtists #TheJanuaryChallenge Day 15.. hrm.. Day 15 of #TheJanuaryChallenge - Draw on everything.. oh boy, do I not like this one, as much as I thrive on chaos and mess, I do not like dirtiness.. and I refuse to waste food (especially when I have food to eat, and so many don't).. "Stop whining, Ben, just do it!"-Revanche. But I do refuse to miss posting something, because I know if I do, that's this over for me.. Fingers (traditional, I know), but on a tablet screen (not so traditional).. an unhappy sun, to reflect my mood.. ha, ha, ha! I kid.. really enjoying everyone's contributions today, it's tempting me to get some make-up items to do some art with.. Not a blue Monday for me. Great fun in my lunch break making a happy face. #TheJanuaryChallenge #64MillionArtists #64millionArtists #DrawonEverything Paradise View in salt on craft paper... My overall award for this challenge was to use some of my craft items or get rid of them so I had to think hard today as art materials not allowed. So how about toilet paper and dried flowers. At least its made me open up my flower press and find some paper shapes I had cast out of toilet paper. #challengeday15 #64millionartists #TheJanuaryChallenge Today I've been enjoying myself at the beach despite the rain and falling temperatures. On the way to the beach I walked past the seagulls doing a rain dance in the park to bring up the worms, so I drew this in the sand. Next I wanted to see what I could create before the tide snatched it. There was a moment where a big wave came in super fast and I found myself almost up to my knees in water...luckly I was wearing my wellies but a person walking their dog had a good old laugh! Here's a few things I managed to capture!!! Enjoy! Got a bit behind this weekend. Day 12, 14 and 15 are below and the body music my daughter and I played the blue peter theme tune with our mouths and feet. #TheJanuaryChallenge #64MillionArtists Day 15 Draw on everything Couldn't think of subject so went to old standby - self portrait. SP1 finger on iPad SP2 stick in sediment SP3 toothbrush on steamed window @64M_Artists Mascara and nail varnish drawing! Easier - for me - than scary 'real' drawing! #TheJanuaryChallenge Mascara and nail varnish face and block of flats (tissue and optrex box). I felt much happier doing this than 'real' drawing, which is still scary for me! january Challenge 15: blueberry and blackcurrant juice 'ink' with skewer 'pen'. on recycled card. Tricky to do! Day 15 I've gone with drawing/carving with a knife on a marrow #funwithvegetables Day 15 - Draw on Anything #TheJanuaryChallenge #64MillionArtists (but without using artist materials) Marmite Creature on a sheet of toilet paper #Marmite Hemel Hempstead Library, Library Assistant Andrew Houseman was charged with writing a poem and his line manager provided the final line. Here it is: My favourite pastime is to read a book One with words and pictures to take a look If it has numerous pages It will take ages But I'll finish it by hook or by crook Day 15 Draw on Anything Marmite Creature on a sheet of toilet paper, using a bent fondue fork to dip and draw with. My challenge was to try something different so after seeing it on TV I decided to try a recipe for Spicy Buttermilk Chicken. I do not usually like highly spiced food but I saw this low carb recipe by Tom Kerridge and thought it looked good so I bought the ingredients and followed the instructions. Firstly, I had to marinade the chicken overnight in buttermilk and various spices. The following day I took the chicken out of the fridge and thought, “This looks nothing like Tom’s version”, which looked pale and creamy unlike mine – beige. However, I carried on with the process and coated the chicken with flour and yet more spices before spraying with oil and baking in the oven for 30 minutes. To save on washing up I used two disposable foil trays rather than Tom’s suggested baking sheet with baking parchment. This was a mistake, as the coating stuck to the trays somewhat when I turned the chicken pieces. When cooked, yet again I thought, “Tom’s chicken did not really look like this,” but this was going to be our Sunday lunch and I wasn’t backing out now! Verdicts on Tom Kerridge’s Southern Fried-Style Buttermilk Chicken: Son, Alex: “Whoa! This is spicy but really nice.” Husband, Mark: “You don’t usually make things this spicy, do you? I would have it again, though.” Me: “I like it but it doesn’t look like Tom Kerridge’s version.” All in all, the recipe was easy to make and I enjoyed doing it. I think I might tone-down the spices slightly next time and use a baking tray with parchment, as stated in the instructions, but trying this recipe has encouraged me to be more adventurous with spices in recipes. This is for Saturday's #patternjanuary #makeup prompt AND for today's #thejanuarychallenge which requires me to draw with something that isn't really intended for drawing (I didn't plan for them to be the same thing - it was just a happpy coincidence) . I used 16 different bottles of nail varnish to make this little pattern. They don't all have names, but some of them do - "emerald dust" "fever" "iridescent bronze" "ruby fruit" "camouflage chic" "smokin' hot" "midas touch" "emerald city" "chocolate gold" "plum seduction" "molten metal"... I wonder how you get a job making up names for nail varnish. I think I'd be good at it! . #nailvarnish #nailenamel #revlon #rimmel #maxfactor #nailfinity #chanel #no7 #rainbow #colourgrid #samplesheet Day 15 #TheJanuaryChallenge @64M_Artists. The task was to draw something without using conventional art materials. Here we have 'Self Portrait' - lipstick on mirror. At 15: it’s a bit difficult to see. But there’s a heart drawn with honey.

I was without WiFi and didn't see Friday's prompt until yesterday...clearly I would have put it off anyway, since I didn't even attempt it until tonight. I have always struggled with words. A challenge isn't a challenge if it's easy...so I didn't want to skip it without at least trying. I went with a topic I know and got my Bestie, @alanda.jacobs, to help me finish it... #thejanuarychallenge #64millionartists #ourpoem #latergram #odetopotatoes #icancountonbestie
