Crafted By Colette

A place for me to ramble about my art and crafting exploits.


Time to do an update on the Animaloon Collective Twitter art challenge. My last update, like pretty much everything else, was a year ago. I’m trying to work on that.

Since then I not only did the Giraffe challenge that I missed, but I did two giraffes. Giraffi?

I didn’t do the Moose, or the Goose from the end of 2021.

I did do Mythical from January 2022.

And I did the Otter from February. For this one I actually followed a YouTube tutorial by BeeJayDeL.

(Yes, by this stage I have completely given up even trying to make balloons anymore.)

March was a Wombat.

April was a Beetle.

May was a Lion. I did a very specific lion, can you tell who he is?

June was a Panda.

For July’s Mole I did a bunch of sketches from random images on Pinterest and covered it with a gradient coloured clipping mask.

I liked that style so much I did the same thing for August’s Flamingo.

I had to do a full illustration for September’s Gecko though cos they’re just so damned cute.

I plan to catch up on the ones I’ve missed, so I’ll probably do the clipping mask sketches for those. They’re fun.
