had to do that, just had dinner and feeling slightly full. Nothing fancy tonight just chicken kievs, jackets and salad; anyway enough of my dinner, what do I have to share today?

Firstly I actually decided to use something other than my Prismacolor pencils today, and opted for Caran D'ache Neo Colour II crayons. It is always interesting to see how something will turn out depending on the medium used.
After I had sketched and coloured my lady I decided not to give her any hair but to focus on what I had been visualising as I was creating her - to that end I stamped, can you believe I used stamps again! I used 3 distress ink colours - "Stormy Sky", "Victorian Velvet" and "Pumice Stone". and stamped the images - oh yes and the background was done with Inktense pencils

So there you have it, what I had envisioned which was my girl showing what was on her mind.

Yesterday you might recall I mentioned the Twinkling H20s class with Dion Dior.. Well one of the discussions on the dedicated Forum for the class was with regards Labelling the Twinks so you don't have to turn upside down to get the name...I shared there that I write the names on the pot lids with my Sharpie Poster Paint pens - as you can see in White...There is a very diverse group of girls in the class, should be FUN... see previous post for link.
Twinks Labelled

Moving on to the other workshop with the DE-LIGHTFUL Joanne Sharpe, her classes kicked off today, on her Birthday...
Our first assignment was to get a composition book and decorate it with papers and tapes, this is mine, I am sure I will add to it as I go but for now I am happy with it.

So if you pop back you will be able to see how I get on with what I am currently doing...that's it for now xxx Ciao xxx
