These are more ideas for the conversation piece brief. I really like the top one although I might put a background in it like some stripy wallpaper or something. I'm not sure that it needs it though.I need to work on faces a lot more. i do not like the one below as much and I am not sure that it works as well for the brief but never mind.
And yay for my 'Ottoline and the yellow cat' book arriving today! :)
HAPPY NEW YEAR everyone! (for midnight)
