Petite Gourmande !

Just a quick post today. Amidst the millions of things I should be doing, I got the chance to make a page for sketchy Thursdays !! Here is the sketch....

4.21 sketch challenge

And here is my take...

I tried to be a little messy as the kids are at school and I hadn't use my new cheap Gesso yet !! I like the page although I am not sure about my hand writing. I had to do it twice as the first pen turned out to be blue in the light. The story is about Amelie the greediest child you will ever meet !! Put vegetable on her plate and she will look at them for hours before pushing them round her plate but give her anything sweet and she will suddenly be very hungry !! The funny thing with the raspberry tart is that she never ever finishes them !! They look lovely but I don't think she is keen on the custard. She will always choose that same tart though. Oh, what a shame, I end up having to eat it !!

Take care



  1. Hey Lovely Anne,
    Happy Easter to you all.
    What a gorgeous page and I love the story : ) Hollie is the same, such a sweet tooth. She does eat anything put infront of her these days though, so I can no longer complain.
    Glad you got the gesso in the end.

    I love your bunting and those slate hearts. The hearts are gorgeous.
    Can you hang them in your lovely garden?
