We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Today ... I shall frolic

We are up to May with the Craft Barn twelve month challenge, and the next two lines of the poem are:

May brings flocks of pretty lambs,
Skipping by their fleecy dams.

and there are no compulsory components this month, although there is not a lot of choice with that couplet - maybe a lamb?

The best thing about doing postcard size is I can use up the small scraps in my ever expanding scrap box.

I started with a small piece of watercolour card that I think I created using Brushos. I then found a piece of handmade paper, which is very easy to tear if you create the tear line with water, and it does look a bit fluffy! I also tore round the head after drawing it, and then a few sticks for the skippy legs!

I've named him Frolic ...

Still in the middle of decorating the living room, so I'm camped in the kitchen. Looking forward to getting stuff back in its rightful place, as I'm already starting to mislay things!

At last, I can feel some warmth in the sun (when it makes an appearance), so happy frolicking ...


  1. Love Frolic the lamb...great idea to create him. I had the idea to do challenges to use bits up in my scrap box but I'm not sure the pile is going down!!

  2. Frolic is a great word and a perfect name for a skipping lamb. The expression on his face is adorable as are his legs!

  3. He is super cute and frolic is the perfect name for him. Made me smile xx

  4. Frolic is lovely, thank you for sharing him in the Craft Barn Month challenge xx

  5. This is absolutely stunning. I LOVE it. Yep, that's how you tear handmade paper. It even looks like a cute little lamb frolicking. Although I'm still glad I didn't join this year's challenge, I simply adore your postcard sized entries each month.

  6. Frolic the lamb is so cute. He certainly looks as if he is living up to his name.

  7. Fabulous! I love Frolic! xx
