Watercolour Wednesday: Something Fishy!

It's Watercolour Wednesday and there's something fishy going on in the craft corner! Isn't he cute? I just woke up, and there he was in my mind waiting to be drawn and to swim away. I used my India Inks mixed with water to make the background first, then coloured the fishy with more India ink and my Derwent pencils. I was just going to go with orange, originally, but I thought a bit of pink might add a nice contrast to his colouring.

I hope you like today's project. I just love drawing fish, they're so free and happy they just cheer me right up. Have a great day!

Project Life 2014: Week 29

Hello, everyone! Today's Project Life page is bright and colourful. There were a few multicoloured cards in my July Gossamer Blue kit for this month and I figured they'd go great for including a picture of some watercolour art, as well as all the organising that went on this week.I didn't really know how to use the ampersand card (aside from Me & You which seems trite) so I just made it the date card and let it shine on its own. I used a lot of little wood veneer, the banners that came in the kit, and I even managed to get some washi tape on there. Definitely trying to use up that washi!

Thanks for joining me, and I'll see you next week for PL Sunday!

Ghost Girl

Hi, all! I'm here with a new card and an unusual colour combination that I just randomly decided to try. I'm kinda into this thing where I colour kinda "washes" or just plain messy with the Copics and then come in with pencils to do the details. I recently took my pencils out of their (beautiful) tin case and organised them into my Copic shelves so they're right at hand. Couple that with my awesome electric sharpener and I'm really into my coloured pencils a lot lately. Why the weird skin colour? I have NO idea, lol! I just kinda went with it once I decided to do it. I'm really happy with how her dress came out, and her hair, but I love her eyes. I definitely have to do eyes like that again! I am kinda miffed that I've coloured this image before so I didn't make any progress with my whole "use your stamps" deal. I'm going to have to weed out the images from my pre-printed box! Anyway, this card is on its way to a new home, so that's good. I have gotten a few comments about how people are missing my card making and colouring so I'm going to try and do/share more of those kinds of things for you guys.
