It's raining, its pouring!

Hi there, how are you?

Have you been crafting up a storm?  
 I wish I was!!

There was me thinking that with our son back at University I would have more me time and the opportunity to finally get back to all things creative!!

Ha ha, the truth is I haven't picked up a brush, marker or pencil in weeks......
I've been busier than ever, just not with fun stuff!

But I don't want you guys missing out as well as me so here is one I created earlier

Pip by Emerald Faeries
Coloured in pencils on kraft

here she is in close up....

With the amount of rain we had on Monday this image is quite apt!

Thanks for visiting

Oh you idiot!

Do you remember Clueless?
normally when painting in watercolour I try and get the background done first....
but on this occasion I thought I could be clever and do it afterwards - what an idiot, basically I wrecked him!

I was livid with myself, what was I thinking!! 
so here is Clueless II
complete with "mushy" background!

Clueless by SCACD
Painted in Watercolours
DP from stash

Update.....from some of the comments you've made I didn't explain well enough that the second image is "totally new" - I painted the background and then Clueless the second!
Here is what is left of the original Clueless - I tried to cut him out because I had messed up the background so badly but watercolour paper is very think & I was struggling to do it neatly!!

I hopefully won't make that mistake again!

Thanks for dropping by
have a great weekend
