Feeling Blue


Firstly I would like to say I can not draw, it's something I would dearly like to be able to do and until I saw the post from Clare Lloyd it wasn't something I thought you could learn. I am thrilled to find out actually it is.

To see how you get started check out the tutorial from Clare over on the PA blog here!

I followed the basic guide for creating the face and features and then went crazy with my crayons, the problem with this is they smudge... alot, so I had to keep painting her face and its not a clean as I would have like. (must buy pencils).

She isn't the prettiest girl in the world , but I aim to improve!!

For the back ground , I used my reverse chicken wire stencil and grunge paste then I the brayer over the top, this works well to highlight the stencil. Some more stencils, stamps and a flower to finish.

Oh I and used my new Xcut alphabet die to add the word ART.

I hope you like her, I am entering into the challenge!

  1. I definitely do like her. She's perfect for the whimsical style which I find so hard to do.....always have to try and make them look real, lol! BTW I think she's very pretty!
