Happy Birthday Dad!

Dad's birthday was yesterday and because I had to go into work unexpectedly last night I couldn't see him for his birthday.  So i whipped this up this afternoon and will go and see him tonight.  I still have no idea what to get him, I want to get him a black boy - one of those spikey plant thingys but im not sure whether I can buy baby ones that are under $100.  May have to raincheck him considering it's almost 6pm.....oops, sorry Dad.

Some time to colour.

This week I have had a few nighhts off work (well deserved I must say) so have had the opportunity to test out my new copics.  Off I went loaded with my birthday loot to continue my collection of copic markers.  I probably went about it the expensive way but at least I have made a start.....So after watching some tutorials and trying to absorb snippets of the coutless hours of footage made available through Youtube I think I finally understanding shading and how to use them a little.  Here are my attempts.  No watercolour crayons were used, all copics.  Now all I need is more time off to unpack some craft boxes (still packed up from putting the house on the market) and make some cards out of the images I coloured.  Lets see how long THAT takes. lol

About Me

My photo
Hello and welcome to my work in progress....I am a mum of two very outgoing children who keep me on my feet all day. A wife to a man who works hard for our family and doesn't like my craft at all (lol) and a dedicated yet part time Admin Assistant for a charity organisation. I have a love for motorbike riding as well as craft and love to shop - who doesn't right?! Back onto craft - craft in general has been a BIG part of my life for so many years I couldn't possibly tell you when it all first started. Around 2008 I fell in love with Papercrafting, of all forms, off the page, scrapbooking and card making and stamping (my fave). Going from just fun to running my own party plan business with Kaszazz and then back to "just for fun". I hope you enjoy the journey with me as I experiment with techniques, colours and product and learn with me also as I inevitably make mistakes and disasters....all in good fun. Enjoy!!
