Altered tree

Hi everyone.. Just stopping by to share with you what I'm doing at the moment...
Over at the Make It Colourful challenge we have been turning some of the digi images in to something different.... you must follow the lines o the original image but alter them with colour....
I have used the Big Tree  from Make It Crafty... and gave him a face....

Here's the original Image
 

 I changed the opacity of the image before I printed it off and then used polychromos pencils for colouring....this did take a while to colour working out where to put the features using the original lines...
Hope you likey..

I will be back again really soon with more 'stuff'
Hugs for now

Tiddly Watercolouring.....

Yoo Hoo..... How are you..?  I'm just wamted to share the watercolouring I have been working onn for the last few days...not quite got the hang of it yet.... but that gives me a good excuse to play about and try again..
I have used a couple of images from Tiddly Inks..

This is a10'' x 7'' watercolour using Light of my Life  and the wooden frame...

I have used a mix of Aqua tone Crayons, Graphitint pencils and watercolour pencils... I never have all the right colours in just one medium...lol... I'm fairly happy with how it turned outbut still need to practise with the blending and controlling the amount of water...

Hope you like it, I have got a few more things to have a go at....
Thank you so much for popping in to take a peek...
.
See you again soon
