Make it Colourful - adding texture

Hi guys... 
wow  we had some fabulous entries in our last challenge.
 This months challenge   over at Make it Colourful is...

There are so many possibilities  with this challenge. I used the oh  so gorgeous

So what did I do.... I used ball point pens for  most of this image, I added a knitted texture to the jumper and gave him a pair of denim jeans,  I had to make the bear furry with a thread bare nose and tummy, I gave the bow some shine  and added a soft feathery feel to his  wings, it's amazing how  changing direction of your stokes and the pressure you apply with  your media can make a difference to your art work.
I hope you will jump over to the Mic page and take a peek at what the lovely DT girlies have been doing.

Make it crafty Oldies....

Hi everyone.... today I want to share with you one of the older images from the Magnificent
 Make it Crafty collection . 
I just love the Steampunk images so I chose the 
this is just one of the images in the $1 offer at the moment Here
I made this into a little scene  using it with the Whimsical beanstalk.  
Both images were really easy to colour and as they are whimsical you can use any colours you want, I didn't know whether to go shiny or rusty so its possible I will be colouring it again in a different way... Oh and I used ball point pens for colouring... but I bet you knew that ...right ! ;) 
Thank you so much for taking a peek, don't forget to check out FB for more inspiration.

Hi there everyone, wow how quick are the months starting to whizz by..... so that must mean we have a new challenge over at Make it Colourful 

Yep, that's right we would love you to colour some bubbles in your Make It Crafty image.
I have used the awesome Alice and Caterpillar digi stamp

I love the Alice in wonderland images... I have used ball point pens to create this, the bubbles took me a few goes to figure out, but overall they are not too bad. I am going to try and do little bubble tutorial  for my buubles with pens I will share it on here and also over on the Make it Crafty facebook page. 
You will find loads of inspiration and ideas from the gorgeous DT girls as well as being able to ask for help and advice...

Life Book 2016 - week 1

Hi there everyone, How  are you.
On the first of Jan I enrolled on to the Life Book 2016 Art course with Tamara LaPorte.
It's amazing, I don't know why I haven't done it before.
It is a mixed media course but you are given guidance and you can use what you have...

  Week 1 -  The Happy Traveller
The photo is really pants, it is much brighter and sharper in real life.... It's so diffucult to try and take a picture of an A3 piece....

 Yaaay for Owls...
For my first attempt it's not too bad drawing is something I need to work on, it's way harder then colouring for me...
The course is 52 weeks + some bonus lessons so I will have loads more to share with you.
Thanks for taking a peek.
