Alpha Challenge - T is for Tern

I'm quite late with this fortnights entry for the Craft Barns Alpha Challenge.  I took an age to decide which word to pick!

I plumped for...

And this happened...

I was fortunate enough to win the £20 prize from last fortnights challenge and I'm eagerly awaiting my goodies... I'll share them next time :)

Thanks for stopping by


  1. WOW LAURA! I think this is your best yet! Your tern is flying straight off the page. Fantastic shading, love the way the grey REALLY makes the white glow, I'll bet it looks even better "in real life". Just been back for another look, his eye is sparkling and looks really 3D. BRILLIANT WORK GIRL! MMx

  2. Hi Laura,

    WOW! I love this! Even though it's different shades of white it definitely makes a statement. I wonder what she is flying to??


  3. The illustration of your chosen word is to the point... but what illustration! The drawing is beautiful, the bird looks alive...

  4. That is a fab drawing of a Tern. We get them here and you are spot on.

  5. Wow, Laura, your tern is just leaping straight off the page! What an absolutely stunning piece of art work. You are so talented. Just gorgeous.


  6. I only just came across this challenge on another blog about five minutes ago and I'm so glad I came across it. I love what you've created too - so effective. x

  7. That is stunning Laura, congratulations on winning the prize last time too!

  8. Wow another cool page - the shading on the wings just has it popping. I thought of you as I perused my dictionary and saw all the birds beginning with 't' and I wondered if this would make it easier or harder for you to chose which avian friend to draw regardless it didn't stop you trumping it this fortnight.

  9. Oh my, what beautiful artwork on your book page! It just looks awesome!

  10. Great drawing again Laura! I think with each letter your bird drawings get better and better. The tern looks very lifelike - well done! Love Claire x

  11. Stunning, beautiful drawing
