Sarah's Challenge #s 5 and 10

I've combined two of the challenges for this page. Challenge #5 was to draw with your non-dominant hand. Challenge #10 was to use simple collage and sketching.

I found it really hard to use my right hand. I tended to use my arm and kept my wrist stiff. I think my writing fit with the theme although I was in seventh grade when I got to buy the Creamsicles not first grade where I learned to print!

For the simple collage I went really simple but I'd been wanting to use this fruit pop in a page and this worked out to be a great one for it. Some sketching, just outlining but using my right hand made it a challenge. I added the borders to finish the page and do a bit more sketching.

If you haven't yet tried to use your non-dominant hand you ought to give it a try. For one thing, it sure gives a different look to your work, for a second, it is rather a fun challenge, and last, it makes you appreciate wherever you are at with drawing with your dominant hand!

This challenge can be found at Sarah's blog. Try it out.


  1. This is interesting. I could NEVER write this well with my left hand. I can barely hold a pencil with it! LOL Great job!
