My take on 1 of the new releases 

Curvy Ballerina

My Recipe:

Used Black card stock and made a size A5 card
I layered my Image with Black, Gold Mirror, Red 
and then repeat the layering 
to give a lot of depth card stock.

I used a uni-ball Signo pen Gold for the 
the trim on the Tutu 

I love making Fuzzy bows!!
I took Trimmed Black made a double bow
made a single Red bow and then finished the center off
with a gold bling button
I just draped the long tales of the red ribbon!!!

I wanted to add these roses but I needed some
gold and used the same Gold pen and just added
some on some areas I used a gold trim.

The Beautiful Sunbird

Hi everybody!!

It has been such a lovely day here in Scotland and I just wanted to paint! 

This is a mid month Challenge reminder for DS4J

As always every bodies favorite

Anything Goes

But there is an Optional Twist

Things with Wings!!


I created a A5 card and made it Landscape
Layered with a blue card stock to bring the blue out in the bird
I used watercolor pencils and acrylic paint.
I used a Spotter Brush to create the feathers
I painted the background with White Acrylic paint with a small amount of 
Acrylic Iridescent Medium
I incorporated this medium to the paint on the back of the bird
because in the wild their feathers are very iridescent.

Coloring Mediums:

I had so much fun with this bird!
I used Derwent Watercolor Pencils
Acrylic Paints
Acrylic Iridescent Medium

I took this picture from a different angle so you
could see the colors without the Iridescent shine.

I I hope you enjoyed this project of mine and hope I inspired you!
