Face Five

Hi Everyone,

Today I'm continuing the 29 faces September challenge with my fifth face.

Here she is:

Simple pencil sketch then decided to add just a bit of colour to her lips and eyes with spectrum noir pencils.

Thanks for visiting today,

Fourth Face

Well I'm running very behind on the 29 faces challenge but am going to do as many as I can!

Here is face number four.....

I think she is my favourite face so far. She was drawn with pencil and coloured using spectrum noir pencils - I haven't used these new pencils much yet but from the little I have used them I have to say I really do like them!

Thanks for stopping by today!

29 Faces for September


So I have been introduced to a new blog via Clare Lloyd called 29 Faces - basically throughout the month of September you have to aim to draw 29 faces.

I'm a bit behind already as it's the 4th Sept today but better late than never!

I really admire people who can draw faces and I believe practice can improve technique so I think this challenge is the ideal opportunity to improve my drawing skills.

So here is face number one (hopefully there will be plenty more to follow - not sure I'll manage another 28 tho!):

So here she is in my brand new sketchbook. I've drawn her in pencil and used water soluble crayons to colour her in.

Thanks for calling in,

Bright and Beautiful!

Hi Everyone,

After seeing Hels lovely bright Sunday Stamper blog post this week I decided to create this very bright and colourful tag:


I created it using dylusions inks, there is some faint water bleaching using a Lin Brown Paperartsy stencil. The bird and quote is a Dina Wakley stamp also coloured using the dylusions inks blended with a water brush.

I added some outlining and scribbling with a white posca pen and then some faux stitching around the edge in black pen.

Thanks for stopping by today,
