Gizzly Bear - Make it Crafty

Hi there everyone...I  am just loving this Grr -izzly bear  from Zoe's store... I have been wanting to colour him for ages...
He can be found in the Halloween section of Make it Crafty

I have used ball point pens again.... these are becoming my favourite  media to use at the moment... but I still need loads of practice...
I only used three colours to create him, yellow, mid brown and black, using short flicks as though you were creating grass... just slowly building up the layers...
we don't really do that much for Halloween really at our house but I do just love to colour the images to create different effects and use a different colour pallette.....
Well I have loads more to colour, so it's back to the blanket fort and I will be back sooooooon
Thank you for visiting

Hugs xx

Make It Colourful - Bright Colour Challenge

Hi everyone, Wow ....thank for all the entries in the shades of black
 challenge last month ,over on Make it Colourful there were some amazing pieces of work, this month we are going to turn it around  , and the challenge is...

Easy right.... we would love you to create your piece of work using bright colours....
I have used Elizabeth J and tried to make her look like a Steampunk Belle (ish)

I have used prisma pencils on the skin, and ball point pens on the rest of her, the stockings were a bit of a challenge, I did use a light covering of pencil underneath the black pen  and then really light strokes to create the sheer look.
I hope you have chance to take part please stop by the Make it Colourful challenge and take a peek at the amazing work from the girls...

that's all for now thank you for popping by

Make it Crafty - Mummified

Hi everyone just popping by to share a quick colouring I did  (well quick for me)   while the  football was on at the weekend... this is Mummified from Make It Crafty...

I have two 'nemesis' colours.... black especially when doing hair and yellow... for some reason I don't get on with them... so I thought I would try and conquer my ..and use them both  on this piece... and that all I used a black and a yellow ball point pen.
