Lets Make a Memory Today
There is a new challenge over at I love Promarkers and it is to use something new. I'm sure you all got new crafty things for Christmas and can't wait to show off what you have made with them.
I got some Prisma colour pencils which I need to practice with to understand how to use them properly but I also got a stash of new 6x6 paper pads - which were bought from TK Maxx of all places.
I used my new paper with the frame background as inspiration as it reminded me of an art gallery wall. This was from an American Crafts Dear Lizzie pad called Polka Dot Party. I cut the sentiment panel from another new pap from Pebbles called Happy Days. I used eyelets and a brad to make this look like a hanging picture with twine that I actually cut from a clothes label!! (Recycle & reuse!!)
I raided my scraps box and found the perfect red heart paper and also the Happy Birthday in blue satin card which I had cut previously using my Silhouette. Finally I added the enamel dots from Doodlebug in co-ordinating colours.
I used these promarkers & flexmarkers-
Skin - Antique white, blush, soft peach & coral. Baby pink cheeks,
Hair - Walnut, Burnt Umber, Terracotta & Cinnamon.
Wood - Raw Sienna & Saddle brown
Paints - Purple, True blue, Ocean teal & Lime Green
Beret & trousers - Cool greys 1, 3, 4 & 5
Powder blue shading.
I also used a silver pen on the brushes and a little poppy on the necklace and lips.
