Be a star


Hello everyone,


Is there anyone else out there that is supposed to be doing some online Christmas shopping for various people but who then just happen to get bored half way through and then go on the crafting websites and manage to buy a little something for themselves......no.....ah just me then....me bad......



A little something on greyboard for you today. Haven't used this stuff for ages....I still have about 4 unfinished projects as well on greyboard still hanging around that Ive started and then decided that I didn't like!







I am entering this into the following challenges:


Thats Crafty,All about Face

Pan Pastel,Colouring

A Little Bit Crafty,Anything Goes (but NOT Christmas)

There's a lot of products used on this one so here goes: Memory box and Dutch Doobadoo stencils,crackle and black lava pastes,dylusions spray,gelatos,faber castell pitt big brush pens,pentel oil pastels,charcoal pencil. The girl is entirely hand drawn.

Hope you like it
