Gaw'd do I need more hours in the evening, well either that or I need a win on the lottery so I don't have to go to work.
Isn't the weather in the UK lovely at the moment, it's a shame I spent it at the NEC, lol. How could I possibly mean that......... well actually I was a little disappointed this time round, what did you think of it?
On Sunday I went round to my lovely Teamie Jane's
house to practice some colouring with Prisma's. Jane is a true artist and has such a selection of pencils and papers, and a pink craft studio, so much choice, it was like being in a sweetie shop. We only got time to colour the face of an image, dreadful really seeing as I was there was four and a half hours, we was chatting crafty stuff and the time just flew, you know how it is. I spent a little more time on my project last night and finished her up tonight, she's not on a card but thought you might like to see how my practising is coming along....
The image is called Adele from Make it Crafty and the current challenge at Make It Colourful
is movement and I thought this image is ideal as there's lot's of movement in these glorious waves.
The image was printed onto Murano pastel cardstock so a first for me, but I love the results. The real problem I had was trying to match the skin tones on the body to the face as at Jane's I used polychromo's but at home I only have Prismas, well for the moment anyway, going round Jane's I came home with a list of must haves, lol. The polychromo's maintained their sharpened point and you could get better defintion than I could with the prisma's. The lines were thicker as you lose the point straight away, but I'm getting there. As with copics, practice, practice, practice.
