Missing in action


Well, it’s been a crazy year.  At the end of last year, we were given 5 weeks notice to move from Houston back to Australia.  It always takes a while to settle in to a new place, find a new house, get all your “stuff” back, find a school for the kids, get the kids settled, husband settled, get me settled etc.  I’ve started a new job a couple of days a week with my old accounting firm.  I have not done a lot of card making, but I have been doing a lot of colouring.   I’ve been taking classes over at Kit and Clowder.  I’ve been doing the pencil classes and I use prisma pencils.  I have also been doing the copic marker classes.  I have been learning so much and having a wonderful time coloring, so I thought I’d share some images with you!!  Some of these pictures are 5 by 7 inches, so a bit big for a card and I have to try and work out what to do with them now they are done.  Some of the images could go onto a card, but I haven’t done anything with them yet…  Just lots of practicing…

Top image is by line artsy – you can find the digi stamp on etsy.  This one is also line Artsy and both were coloured with copic markers.IMG_6848

The next couple are Tiddily Ink images – I would have loved to enter the DT call, but I need to start blogging again and get back to making cards…IMG_6821 IMG_6823

Here are some saturated canary images.  The top two images are colored with copic markers and the third image is colored with pencil:IMG_6825 IMG_6764 IMG_6742

This one is from paper shelter – the image is printed and the background is drawn in, as with the images above.  Coloured with pencil…IMG_6746

These ones are Ching-Chou Kuik on etsy.  Both done with pencil…IMG_6837 IMG_6841

This one is an underwater monochromatic scene – image from TheOctopodeFactory over on etsy – this is colored with pencil:



And lastly from me, another pencil coloring, a beautiful image by Janna Fairy ArtIMG_6722

Even Jorja has been getting in on the action and wanting to learn how to colour.  She’s doing such a good job!!

IMG_6830Some of the images are colored with prisma pencils and some are done with copic markers.  I’ve been doing classes on both medium… So much fun!!

Hopefully I can post a little more of my coloring and maybe get to making some cards again soon…

Thanks for stopping by :)
