Morning all, hope you are safe and well, particularly all of you in the west and south-west who got another storm battering last night. I rather think we may have dodged a bullet here as it is much calmer than expected ..... but never speak too soon as I believe there might be more on the way before the weekend is over.
Now then, circumstances have dictated that I needed to get the pencils out rather than use the inks, and I haven't used pencils for an absolute age, so I pulled on the sweat pants and the headband, filled my water bottle and laced the trainers while I had a warm up with them. Hmmmm. Maybe I should exercise more often with them, scary how quickly you can forget.
Anyhoo, this is my first little practice piece
This is Bella Sitting On A Pile Of Presents from Wild Rose Studio
Coloured with Polychromos pencils
Sentiment is Paper Smooches
Then because I had enjoyed Bella so much I did it all over again in Distress Inks
It's difficult to compare the two as I pencilled straight onto the card base, but I inked onto Bristol Board
Now you have seen more elephants than is natural for a Saturday morning, I'll potter off and do something constructive. I had a Eureka moment yesterday which I am itching to try out.
