I hope you are well. I have a little ‘play time’ project to share with you today.
I have been picking my pencils up and down over the past few months and having a play with them here and there, but I would always give up too easy, find an excuse why they weren’t working for me and run straight back to my comfort zone – markers! hehe
BUT!!! For the last couple of nights I gave myself a little talking to and sat down to colour with my Prisma pencils once again. This time I wasn’t allowed to throw away the image half way through, and had to complete it, just to finish it. So… I did!
The image I have been playing with is one of the new adorable Magnolia Stamps – Princess Welcome Tilda from the Princes & Princess collection.
Overall, it’s OK. I’m upset with how dark the legs got. I really wanted more highlight on the right hand side but it kept getting darker each time I tried to fix it, so I have decided to ignore them! lol
I’m reasonably happy with the choice in skin colours (you should have seen my experiments!!) and I love the colours of the dress.
I left the background ‘scratchy’ to show it was coloured in pencil. I guess it was my touch of ‘artistic flair’ – LOL
I didn’t use any solvent to blend – mainly using a lighter colour to blend and then blend with the white, and finally I smoothed it out a little using a paper stump.
A close up to prove it is pencil – but don’t look too closely!! haha
The DP is also from Magnolia – Cloudy Purple Hearts – “Sweet Crazy Love collection”. I think it is one of my favourites actually. I don’t do very well with DP, but the nice small pattern and muted colour works nice!!
Thanks for popping by!! I hope you have a fabulous weekend.
