Happy Thoughts

Happy Day everyone! You would think that having Easter Monday off from work, I would have more time to do crafty stuff, but no….. I keep thinking that today is yesterday--if that makes any sense to you. It feels like I’ve lost a day this week--LOL. Ah…well.

A wonderful sketch provided by Jacqueline this week at the Friday Sketchers Challenge blog. (I hope her computer is up and running again.)

I saw handbag in a store window. It was purple with black trim—looks quite fetching I thought. So I’ve chosen purple to add to the black and white for the next card for my B&W+…collection.
I wanted to do a Tilda with black hair. I’ve chosen a Tilda image with straight hair, as I thought this would be the easiest to do. As you can see, it’s not quite there yet. I have to use darker greys next time I think. It’s hard to judge—the colour lightens up when the ink from the markers dries.

Have a wonderful day!

PS. 2 postings today. If you’re reading this one first, keep scrolling down for the how-to on the flowers (but only if you’re interested).
