I’m totally in love with this week’s photo. The dappled sunshine amongst the cornflowers is a perfect setting for one of my favourite Tolkien poems and some folk art inspired flowers.

I feel that the drawing itself this week is particularly successful. The text is really strong and sets a standard for any future use of text. This week I formed the letters using solid lines rather than outlining the letters first creating white space inside. I also love the border I’ve created around the text, I’ve never had much success in the past with designing borders but something this week has clicked into place. I’m looking forward to using this again in the future.

This photograph totally brings back all the calm and happy feelings I created when drawing it. It’s the perfect reminder of why I started this project and the mindful meditative state I was trying to connect with.
