My First Digital Doll

I have always wanted to have a go at digital art, so I bought myself a Wacom graphics tablet; signed up for a fab course, 'Digital Dreams' on Willowing's blog; opened up photoshop and several days later... ta dah! I'm quite pleased with my first attempt. I've learnt a lot about Photoshop and how to draw faces over the past week, so thank you Tam. I've also signed up to another of her courses, 'Fabulous Faces', which is non digital, so I'm going to dig out a sketch book and pencils and give it a go.

Mojo Monday Week 204

I have made this card for the Mojo Monday challenge. I have used a Lili of the Valley stamp, which has been coloured with Copics; Memory Box 'Minuet' papers; SU card and ink and the usual mix of punches and nesties.

Ceramic Painting

I haven't posted anything for a while as I've been having a go at art journalling and have also signed up for a few online painting courses.
One thing that I have done recently, resulting in something to upload, is to attend a ceramic painting class at the Bean and Brush, with my 'partner in crime', Karen. We used special glazes which 'move' into the adjacent glazes and change colour once the object has been fired in the kiln, so what started out as a butterfly painted in stripes of terracotta, white and a reddish colour, ended up totally different when it came out of the kiln. We were both really pleased with the result - mine is the top photo and Karen's is underneath.
