Hello! How is everyone? Good I hope! I’m off to our local fireworks display later and I’m really looking forward to it. I luuuurve fireworks! I’m lucky that my dogs are not too bothered by them. They bark at the first ‘whoosh bang!’ then sleep through the rest! J
Ok, this is the weekend right? Yes? Oh wow, well I don’t usually post on a Saturday but that is about to change as I am beyond thrilled to announce that I have been asked to join the uber talented ladies over on THE PENCIL CASE , showcasing the awesome LYRA REMBRANDT POLYCOLOR PENCILS Whoooo hoooo!
As anyone brave enough to visit my blog will know I have been using these incredible pencils for about a month now and find it almost impossible to use anything else. I was totally blown away by them, their ease of blending and their vibrant rich colours; they have even managed to make me look halfway competent at colouring which is saying something!! J
So for my very first challenge as part of this fabulous team (happy dance!!) the theme is F = Fierce! So get out those 'fierce' colours and colour yourself silly!! You can use ANY medium you like to join in.
This time we are sponsored by the amazing….
………who is offering an incredible prize so check out THE BLOG for details.
Ok off we go then. So when saw the image I was lucky enough to work with (another happy dance!!) I thought rainbow!! I know my brain worries me too sometimes!!
This stunning, glamourous, ‘poisonous’ witch is called PRISCILLA and I thought I would place her on a cauldron. I know that Halloween is now a long distant memory but she’s a witch, what else was I supposed to do with her?!!
I made my cauldron using a snowglobe die turned upside down; the flags cut from a banner die to make ‘feet’ and circle dies to create bubbles! To make it a little less Halloween I’ve decided that it’s not a potion at all; it’s actually her bath for later!!
