Joined a new class at Kit and Clowder. It's the Elements of Nature Class and I have to admit, it's one of the best classes i've ever taken. I have learned so much.

I'm also trying out a new cardstock for colouring.  The first one I tried out for pencils, when I first got them, I got on ebay and was 300 gsm !!!  Waaaaay too 'toothy'  Then I dropped to 250gsm from a pad I bought in Hobbycraft.  That also was too 'toothy' not quite so much work as the 300 but still requiring lots and lots of layers and then going blotchy when overworked (which was easily done).

 Over the Easter weekend, I opted out of Easter Eggs - don't like chocolate anyway, then got the hubs to take me to Hobbycraft to get lots of new goodies.  WOOT :D

Picked up a new pad of lighter drawing cardstock - 190gsm and I love it, I think I could even drop to 160 with my Prismacolor pencils and it would still work.

I have gone from 4 days to complete ONE Image to - 2 nights to complete 4 that I am totally thrilled with :)  



All stamps are included with the Elements of Nature Class at Kit and Clowder

I am so proud of myself, for real !!!!  The Starburst Lily was a pencil class, which of course was easy to follow, the other 3 were Copic Marker classes which I had to convert, via a lesson  included in the classes.  The most difficult was the daffodil as it is all coloured with 'flicks'.  Flicks are easy to do with a Marker, not so with a pencil, but, by adding additional colours I was able to make it look ok, well, maybe more than ok.  May have taken me EON's to finish, but finish it I did :D
