Anything Goes …. Now I am a little busy getting another project off the ground – more about that in a couple of days but I have been challenged for time so at the weekend I decided to spend a day just colouring – I managed to colour eight images! Well pleased with myself! Out of all the images I coloured this one stood out for me the most. It is such a beautiful image (Mo Manning of course! and can be found at http://www.mosdigitalpencil.com/ amongst lots of other totally amazing images). I added some beautiful green centred Petal Lu daisies which I just fell in love with as soon as I saw them! You can choose your favourite flowers from Petal Lu but following the links here:
So I have been taking a couple of colouring classes with the lovely Clare Rowlands recently – she has been over at a paper place not too far from where I live. I cannot tell you how much it helps to have some show you how to colour properly…I have watched mountains of vids on youtube etc – havent we all? and they are good but the real thing is so much better. So now I am hooked on Copics….which is just as well since That Craft Place now stock them!!!
The challenge this time is “Things with Wings”……I immediately thought…Fairies….and it was very nearly a snow fairy but I thought I would avoid Christmas for a little bit longer, although I know it is on the way…here is my project….
She is a Mo Manning image, coloured with Copics. I threw in a little frantage, some hand rolled flowers, lots of Memory Box dies, some Joy Dies, some seam binding and a sprinkle of pearls…. here are some close ups….
Here is a closer picture of the frantage – this is Shabby White….
And a close up of those hand rolled flowers, it also shows a close up of the colouring – I have used a coloured pencil to add a little depth to the shadows int he folds othe dress here, and if you look closely at the wings you can see how fabulously the Copics pens blend together – here I have used a very soft aqua and a very soft lilac to give the wings some irridescence….
I do hope you like this project – I loved making it to share with you. If you would like to take part in this weeks challenge, head on over to That Craft Place where I know Lisa, Danny and Lynn will be happy to help you chose items for your project….and when you have finished why not share it with us and enter the That Craft Place Challenge over at http://thatcraftplaceblog.blogspot.co.uk/….we look forward to seeing your finished items…..
This is my first ‘That Craft Place’ design team project and I am so excited to have been chosen to be part of the design team. It is a daunting project with so many talented people around and so many different aspects to crafting to be having a go at but here goes …. and I truly hope you like it. Whilst I have made this card specifically for the challenge – which is ANYTHING GOES by the way!!! – I had already spotted this image somewhere else and loved but thought I might have to wait until the winter months came back around to use it. One of my favourite things about crafting is the colouring in – I like lots of different media for this but my current favourite is marker pens…
