Make It Colourful Challenge - Transparency

Hi everyone,
  wow what amazing entries in the feathers challenge we had last month...
This month we have another great challenge for you... Transparency 
All the details for the challenge can be found here...  as well as the other amazing work from the DT girlies.

I chose to  use the Carriage of love for my work... I thought I could make it look like a glass carriage with a little princess in side..... aaaahhhh!

I have used a little bit of everything for the colouring ... ball point pens, pencils  chalk , some gesso.
It is easier than you might think so why not have a go... we would love to see what you do.
Thank you for taking the time to look...

Life Book 2016 - week 1

Hi there everyone, How  are you.
On the first of Jan I enrolled on to the Life Book 2016 Art course with Tamara LaPorte.
It's amazing, I don't know why I haven't done it before.
It is a mixed media course but you are given guidance and you can use what you have...

  Week 1 -  The Happy Traveller
The photo is really pants, it is much brighter and sharper in real life.... It's so diffucult to try and take a picture of an A3 piece....

 Yaaay for Owls...
For my first attempt it's not too bad drawing is something I need to work on, it's way harder then colouring for me...
The course is 52 weeks + some bonus lessons so I will have loads more to share with you.
Thanks for taking a peek.

Snowy Fairytale Bridge....

Hi guys how are you?.... Well I'm slowly getting back into the colouring now , and trying to prepare for Christmas and all the  school activities which are coming up, but I love it. I have wanted to have a change of media so I just used a regular 4B pencil and made the Fairytale bridge into a snowy scene... I also added a few of the Large Pine Tree's.... 

It can be quite difficult to colour white as it's more the shadows you have to work out... but it was fun , and if my family get there way and I have to tidy the Dining room table ( where I work) there might be more sketch style images coming up..........  but I think I might try and sneak a few things out... Sssshhhh!

Well thank you again for stopping by
 Big Hugs

Countdown to Christmas....

Hi everyone.... wow it'a ages since I have posted, I back now...( I think) I have had a few pc issues to sort out recently so it's taken me a while to get back and I am sooooo far behind with stuff. So what have I got today.... Countdown to Christmas this is one of the steampunk santa's over in the Mic Store

This fits in with the new colouring challenge we have on the challenge blog of Christmas colours.
I have used ball point pen for Santa the sack and the chimney , prisma pencils for the faskin and chalk pastels for the background...
the colours are a little deeper  IRL the scanner seems to have washed  them out a bit... it's more of a midnight sky... :o)

well I hope I will be back again real soon with something else.... Happy colouring.
