Welcome to my blog!

From x stitch I moved into card making - now I am playing around with mixed media! I am taking part in different workshops and with help from crafty pals, learning about different mediums and techniques. Hope you feel inspired to create after a visit to my blog - Happy Crafting!

Wolf Moon - Lesson 2 Moonshine

I started out with a background of blue and purple acrylic paint and flicked white paint on it for stars.

I am not very good at drawing faces (I need much more practice - unlike my friend Clare who draws gorgeous girls!)

I put some gesso on a book page and drew my lady - I was anxious about messing my page up so decided to draw it on something else. I painted her with acrylics and sketched my wolf on a similar page.

I added a light rosy colour on her cheeks  - I did watch a tutorial that Clare did on shading but couldn't shade very well over the acrylic paint. Next time I may try with pencils until I get a bit more used to shading - I have watched Effy Wild and Tamara LaPorte (?sp) and they make it look so easy!!!

Hope you weekend is safe, dry and crafty!

She is fab Debs. I love the whole page - fabulous. The shading seems to require lots of colours and graphite - don't be scared of it. Hugs Cherry xxxx
