Ingenious rainbows to coincide with World Book Day

Another fantastic idea for adding colourful rainbows to your windows for those to see on their daily walks.

I posted last week about the rainbows currently popping up in peoples windows to give thanks to those working during the Covid-19 lock down and how I love to see them when out.

This one is made of a stack of books in one of our neighbours windows. I had spotted it last week and then went looking for it again so I could photograph and make this sketch.

Just by a strange coincidence it happens to be World Book Day today also, which makes it doubly fantastic! I know for my children, now 9 years old that books are a huge part of their lives and especially at the moment they can provide an escape from the lock down.

Stay home and stay safe everyone.

Draw inspiration from your inner tiger for this art challenge from the Tailor Ed Foundation

Tailor Ed TigerGet creative and draw a tiger for this Edinburgh charity.

The Tailor Ed Foundation is a charity set up to teach daily living skills to children with autism, they have been helping families in Edinburgh since 2008.

Thanks to funding from the Big Lottery their services are available to families for free, but they are raising awareness through an art challenge that anyone can take part in. It is also a perfect creative activity for the October holidays, so get nivolved!

My tiger is drawn in black ink and watercolour but any medium is allowed, paint, crayon, pencil, felttips, collage. Tigers should be A4 or less in size and make them as bright and colourful as you want. Once completed take a photo of your work and email in to Tailor Ed.
