still drawing

Hi There
I hope you're all enjoying the cooler weather while it lasts as Summer will officially be here
on Thursday!

I find it hard to believe that it is  almost December.

I have been drawing quite a lot and am trying out some new journals as well. if you know me already you will already get that I'm totally crazy  about art supplies and that I  collect them too! I love to try out new things when it comes to my journals and art.

Over the last few months I have been doing Jane Davenport's workshop Vitamin sea, and loving it!
Its been a watercolour dream.

these pages are from Jane's class and I found it a real challenge working on so many faces on a two page spread but I love how these girls turned out.

I started the drawings in a permanent ink pen, yes the epic pen! I then added layers of watercolour paints and some coloured pencil details.

Thanks for stopping by and having a look.

happy anniversary card


Its my turn on the blog at Bizzy Becs today and its also my wedding anniversary so 
I decided to make a card to give to Hubby.

I love this stamp set from Whipper Snapper designs called Taodally in Love.

I've kept the card really simple and coloured the stamped image with Copic Markers.

The shape cut out for the shaker box was made using the memory box die Cupid Heart and 
fun foam.

Supplies used:
Whipper Snapper stamp : Toadally in love
Memory box Die: Cupid Heart
Avery Elle: Wonky Stitches 
Lawn Fawn Die: Everyday Sentiment Banners

Drop into the Bizzy Becs Store and have a look there are some really great new goodies 
for you to pre-order

Thanks for stopping by

sooooo I've been busy

I really can't believe that we are well into the "end of the year" and the Christmas decorations are out.
November is all but over now 

 before we know it we will be rushing into getting ready for the holiday season.

I've been drawing like mad and messing around with watercolour so I thought I would share this with you for something a bit different. 

These Drawings are from my Jane Davenport Vitamin Sea online class.

This is my cover image

I have used mainly watercolours and I love the Schmincke ones, but I have been using some of the golden Qor Watercolours too as they have some super "bright" colours.

Thanks for Dropping by to have a look. Drop in again and I will share with you  more pages of the journal.
