The new word at Every Inchie Monday is “maid.” It took me a while to decide what to do for this one. My first thought was the rhyme by The King’s Breakfast by AA Milne, which involves a dairy maid, one of my favourites. Then I remembered “maids a milking” from The Twelve Days of Christmas and lastly “pretty maids all in a row,” from Mary Mary. So here’s what I chose:
The first two are simply illustrations from The King’s Breakfast and the third is a cute illustration I found on-line for Mary Mary.
However, I couldn’t just leave you with copies of other people’s work so I decided to come up with my own “pretty maids.”
Having tried and failed to draw this in miniature I decided to produce a large version and then reduce it. I stamped some flowers in rows and then coloured them with Promarkers. I then punched out small circles and added these to the centre of the flowers before drawing on little faces. Finally, I added the words by hand.
Not wanting to short change anyone who has taken the trouble to visit this page I thought I ought to do something with the original image that I made and so I turned it into a simple little card.
I just added a stamped border, coloured in the leaves and berries and then mounted it on some pink card.
So there’s my take on maid. You can be sure the other players at Every Inchie Monday will have come up with some superb interpretations, so be sure to buzz over and pay them a visit.
Thanks for buzzing by.
