The Pencil Case - J = January Colours!

Hello! Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had an amazing Christmas.  I know that some people had a horrific time due to the terrible flooding in the north of the UK and if you were one of these my heart goes out to you.  I know the clean up will be long and painful.

Sorry I have not been around much but normal service will soon be resumed and I will be popping by to catch up with you all quick smart!

So the beginning of a new year brings a new challenge over on THE PENCIL CASE blog and our theme is January Colours.  So use tones that you think represent this month wherever in the world you happen to live.  As always the DT is showcasing the fabulush LYRA REMBRANDT POLYCOLOR PENCILS.

This time we are sponsored by the awesome.....
..…who are offering an incredible prize so check out THE BLOG for details.

Now I know that the UK has had some unusually mild weather of late but January usually brings the dull, grey and cold days.  So with this in mind my January Colours are blue and grey.  
I really enjoyed colouring this gorgeous little girl and she went some way to replenishing my dwindling mojo that has gone on it's usual Christmas break. Hope it's having a good time!!

Dies: Spellbinders ‘Romantic Rectangles – Tattered Lace ‘Pin Dot Ovals’ – Tonic snowflake
Card/Paper: Centura Pearl – LOTV ‘Frosty Christmas’
Others: Black Soot DI - Glitter dots – Faux stitching

So don’t be blue and snuggle up over to THE BLOG and join our fab challenge.  And if you want to experience these amazing artist quality pencils for yourself you can get them HERE! And if you already have them and enjoy using them why not share your makes with us in our FACEBOOK GROUP! We would love to see you!

Thanks so much for looking and have a wonderful weekend!
