Kit and Clowder Monthly Colouring Project December 17

Happy Thursday! 

I missed WOYWW yesterday as I was too busy working on this project.  Honestly I loved working on it, bit by bit, colouring the necessary section one bit at a time to build up the whole picture. Alyce is amazing at just breaking it down into little sections so that it's not overwhelming.  I've done previous monthly colouring in one session but I did spread this one out over 3 sittings.  Penguins and their accessories first, then the decorations second and the remainder of the scene in the last sitting. 

I plan to layer this on to coloured card and make it into a finished card.  I will definitely be doing more of this colouring for practice. 

I really hope you like my piece and I can't recommend Kit and Clowder enough for teaching colouring techniques and art fundamentals.  Had I tackled something like this previously it would've been flat and blocky, as you can this has so much more dimension. 

Thanks for visiting my blog, please leave a comment to say you've been by and I can visit you.

Kit & Clowder Monthly Class October 2017

Hi Everyone, 

I apologise for the absence, I caught the cold and have had too much going on in my home life to keep up with the blog.  I'm back on the case now.  

The above image is from the latest Kit and Clowder monthly colouring class, I really enjoyed colouring this.  Alyce breaks down each section you colour into separate chapters and it makes it seem so much more 'doable'.  In this image the first chapter is your penguins, which are from Whimsy Stamps.  You begin colouring the penguins bodies and feet, the second chapter is their clothing and accessories.  The two chapters together is about 1hour 20 mins of video which is perfect for me to cope with.  Doing it all at once might've been a bit too much for me.  I am looking forward to working on the rest of the image which is again broken down into further chapters, it's not just one chapter called background.  

If you are looking to improve your colouring and learn art fundamentals and techniques I really really recommend signing up to Alyce's classes.  She's really patient and offers positive feedback along with everyone in the facebook group, it's a positive learning environment where beginners are welcomed and encouraged.  

Hopefully my colouring will look somewhere close to this when I'm done! 😁

Thanks for visiting my blog everyone, Lyns xx

LOTV Engagement Shaker Card


This card is one I have made for my friend who got engaged on holiday in Italy.  I wanted to have another go at a shaker card and I think I definitely did better with this one - the sequins actually move around in this one 😂

The stamp is an LOTV one that I have coloured with copics - I really need to work on background colouring (this colouring homework list is never ending).

The papers are from a really old pad, the ribbons, sequins and jewel button are from The Ribbon Girl. The pearls are so old I can't remember where they are from.  I really wanted to add a sentiment, but I just can't find one that will fit, I think I'll stamp the inside instead!

Thanks for visiting guys!

WOYWW 434 - A toil toil witchy card on the desk!

Morning Wednesday Lovers, 

Today's work desk is a witchy toil and troubled one... 

Betty at Simply B Stamps runs a progressive challenge every month in her facebook group.  She gives away a free digital image and then sets up some rules to abide by... the rules were, you must use 2 ribbons and a polka dot paper.  I bought the digital papers from Printable Cuttable Creatables.  The desk isn't too much of a mess for once - I had a plan in mind so I could stick to it.  

For anyone who is new to WOYWW and wants to know why I'm sharing a photo of my messy desk, please visit Julia's blog for all the info!

This is the final card, I wish you could see more of the dotty paper.  I'm not too happy with my colouring on the pleats.  It's my own fault, I've not been doing the kit and clowder classes enough, but I will get back into it. 

Thanks for peaking at my project and desk, please leave a comment so I can visit you!
