End of the week but I finally got this finished.  I must admit I struggled with this prompt, and then struggled to get the page to look how it was in my head (I've done lots of practising of blending and brush work though!), but got there in the end.


Thanks for the great chat everyone, especially Marilyn and Jody.  I'm going to have fun looking through the gallery and leaving love, but it will have to be tomorrow - I need my bed now!

Aw Carla how sweet and thoughtful of him (even if he forgot about the amazon account - bless!).  Have LOTS of fun. :)

For those of you who were interested, these are some of the AJ layout templates we mentioned that could be a useful starting point for your page.  You don't have to use all the layers from one template and you could mix and match between different templates if the fancy took you:

OMG I LOVE Copic Markers Carla!  I started with Promarkers because they are cheaper but then happened to try using some Copics at a class and then there was no turning back!  I am not a paper and pens/paint artist in the slightest, however I still get really chuffed with the results I can produce with Copics because of the amazing blending qualities they have.  Personally I would say get yourself on a class at a local craft shop before you buy any - that way you have someone on hand to teach you the basics and you can try it out.  Also you will get to see all the different colours so that might help you decide which ones to start with on a limited budget. Also think about what sort of images you'll be colouring and pick appropriate colours - no point getting pinks if you'll only do boy images, no point getting flesh tones if you'll only do flowers etc.  Don't about over with you, but if you do a class at a craft shop over here, they'll offer a discount on the day of the class, so you'd be able to buy them slightly cheaper.


Do beware though - collecting different colours becomes addictive!!!!!


Have fun :)

Yep, I've heard many of those (and I'm definitely not 50+!) - and Aggie I too spent a looong time looking at liver on my plate as a child!
