Pirate

ARF Pirate 1

Hey everyone, when I was in the studio yesterday making cards, I was digging through my pile of coloured images that hadn’t yet been put onto a card and ran into this gem. He jumped out at me because the other day I ran accross the pirate paper scraps in my scrap paper drawers (yes I am still on the try and use up some of my paper kick) and I think they were a perfect match. The image is Pirate Adventure from A Random Fan, and was coloured up with copic markers.

Unfortunately because of how long ago I coloured this it was before I was keeping track of all of my colours. And if you look at my other work you can see how far my colouring has come, even from this, BUT that doesn’t mean I don’t love this little image and he still deserved to be on a card. Remember, the more you colour the better you get!

KKS sketch Jan 2016

I used the Sketch to create my card, just changed it to square. looking back at it now I guess I should have had another patterned paper layer on top instead of just the image. I may have to tackle this sketch again this month.

Rosella in Gum Tree

Hey! Today I have just a colouring to share with you all I have to figure out what to do wit this image yet. But every month Make it Crafty has a challenge and this month the Make it Colourful challenge is feathers.  I decided that I wanted to colour up Rosella in a Gum Tree, I printed it off on Fabriano Artistico 140lbs hot press watercolour paper, and coloured it up use my polychromos pencils.

This was not a fast process and probably took me about 4 hours of colouring time, everything has 4-8 coats of colour put on it to allow it to blend nicely, that seems to be the trick to these pencils is lots of light slow layers, but I love the look I get with the harder lead.
