So, let's see if you can tell the difference. First up is a little 'gift' I made for my parents - having found my mojo behind the sofa! (I lost it on Wednesday when I was about to start this project.) The 'gift' is actually a list of dates for us all to meet up this year. Last year was manic and we didn't get to see my parents as much as we (and they) would have liked. So this year, we've decided to block out a weekend each month where we know that we will be doing something together. So I guess you could call it a 'gift of time', really - we just wanted them to know that we'll be around.
Now this kind of colouring is very different from most of the other stuff I've done. I used my felt pens (I'm working on getting Copics!), which gives a very bright result, which is a bit scary for me as I'm not used to working with such vivid colours. But I felt that they were appropriate for these images. I kept the rest of the card really simple. Hope you find Ruby as funny as I do. Hop over to Bugaboo - you get an extra 10% off your first order until 15 January 2010 as an opening offer. I wish them good luck in their venture.
And just to finish off today, I thought I'd share this little paper teacup I made from instructions in Marion Elliot's book 'Paper Sculpt Sensation' (click here to see it on Amazon). There are some lovely projects but I didn't have too much time to delve, so I chose this because it wasn't difficult and there weren't too many pieces to cut out.
It's a tiny little thing - only about 8 cm high, or so. Isn't it cute? Now that I've made one, I shall be looking at what I can do with these little delights - watch this space.
Don't you think the photographs are remarkably improved? I'm sooo pleased with the results.
Anyhooo, I still have to do my Digital Pencil Challenge post and it'll soon be teatime, so...
