UPDATE:- BABY HAS BEEN NAMED LEE.
Sorry I am a bit late posting this; boy has it been hectic here today. My grandson was here till 4.45, then I came straight upstairs to my craftroom to finish my card. Next thing my daughter telephoned could she come and see me for a cuppa. That was ok as she will talk to me as I craft, but the next thing we had to make urgent phone calls for my sons University funding and you know what that means -yea, hanging around on the telephone waiting for this dept and then lots of checks before they tell you they can't help you afterall. They needed to talk to my son. Well he's in Leicester!! To cut it short, I've told him to ring tomorrow and sort it out. Phew... now to my card...at last, I know!!! :¬D
Well I managed to finish it and here she is. Little Nevaeh from the wonderful drawing hand of Krista Smith at Saturated Canary. Boy I wish I had a finger full of her talent! If only aye....lol!
This is my first attempt at pencils in over 20years. I am quite happy with it, but I need to practice the shading and softening more. I will get there I am determined, as I really enjoyed doing it.
Here is a close up of the image for a good look; see what you think...
I think the light interfered with her face a bit. It honestly isn't as patchy as it looks here. Maybe I used too much top lighting.
Here's another picture from the side to show you the dimension. I used a pink patterned vellum butterfly over the top of the pink paper one to give it a bit of extra dimension. The flower is made from a piece of lace curtain I cut into strips. I use them to make lace ribbon and flowers.
I hope you like it. It is something a little different and I think I am going to enjoy exploring this medium more and more.
Well that's it for today, I will try to get something done after my cuppa for tomorrrow.
Thank you all again for your best wishes, not only my little nephew but also the get well wishes sent to me. I really appreciate them all. Baby is the same today, holding on thankfully!
Hugs Linda xx
