☆ AEDM - Week Three Update

Another busy, busy week, but a week where I was reminded quite literally that I need to start slowing down...well maybe just a little!

But I am still managing to keep up with daily creativity as part of AEDM. I can't believe this is week three's round up and there are only two weeks left.

So what did I create this week? (you can click on the paintings or their  captions, to view the whole painting + the my thoughts behind the painting.)

On day eleven I started what would become my star gazer painting. I decided to give myself + everyone else a break from my daily blogging + posted this on facebook instead!

WIP - Star Gazer (not blogged)
 Day twelve and I put aside star gazer + worked on my Illustration Friday piece - 'Tree'. I was inspired by the tree I spent a summer in planning, pretending + dreaming.

Princess in the Tree
On day thirteen, I realised that being 32 weeks pregnant meant I couldn't physically keep doing what I did before pregnancy. And although I managed a lick of paint or two, I was too uncomfortable and only managed a little bit on Star Gazer.

 On day fourteen, I was feeling 100% better - almost back to normal... well as normal as you can when you are carrying a baby! And I finished Star Gazer.

Day fifteen took me in a different direction, and had me paint this girl + I am still not sure of her story.

Day 15
On day sixteen I painted 'Snow Bound' in response to Inspiration Avenue's prompt 'whats through your  window'

Snow Bound
 Today I was inspired by a couple of gum tree leaves + the cherry blossom stamp I used in the back ground, and finished of my blossom fairy today.

Here is the painting in it's entirety.

 So if you are on your own AEDM journey - are you surprised like me that we are at the end of week three? Or are you struggling some? I would love to hear how you are going.
