Woyww

Happy WOYWW everyone

Been busy making ATC cards for the Woyww #7 coming up soon and have a bunch of spares to send too if you would like to swap one just let me know. 1st come 1st serve !!!

I have been playing with my pencil crayons and shopping around I want to try a few of the other brands that are coming out so I'm going to see if I can find some good deals out there, because pencils, markers you can never have enough of (anything that draws I have a huge weakness for).
Got spares Mail em to me lol 
I'm colouring up finally some new digi from Limited Runs and the ones to the left are not even in the store yet they are going through the test colour up to see if there are any little mistakes that need to be edited out. Also opened a Facebook group finally for Limited Runs. If your on please join in 
You can see the little stack of ATC off to the right behind the pencils above my Eye drawings all set for the swap 
You can see more of the water coloured girl in the bg she's for one upcoming challenge but I forgot to move her so the close up will be posted on the 16th. Lately it's been faces and birdie's to draw I started with colouring one bird and the next thing I knew I was drawing a bunch of them all over the place, funny how that goes sometimes.
So here's the pull out shot still moving things around I swear I like to over organize and shift .. crap around as the DH likes to put it lol

Also if  you need a backside for your WOYWW ATC I made a quick print sheet up with 9 on them so you can print out a bunch quick and make as little or as many as you like Send me an email and I'll send you the sheet out to you (found in sidebar)
Happy Wed 
hugs Nikki

Bathing Angel

So here's a new stamp from Limited Runs  It's Called "Over my Shoulder" it has 2 digi included with and without Wings on the back
When I was colouring this in I started playing around with adding wings on her back so I drew some in this is the original winged back and I thought to try something different so I coloured her all up in chalks which does take a while and can get messy if your not careful when colouring
I sealed her in too so she won't smudge (you can use Hairspray if you don't have a fixative spray)

WOYWW

Happy WOYWW !!! Well for those of you who want to join in the swap of the ATC I made up a backing sheet for ATC's it has 9 of these on it so send me an email and I'll send you the sheet if you would like (it's in my sidebar) 

Now Here's why you've come to visit my little desk I'm in colouring may ham with all the ATC's  I hope to get done in time plus I plan on mailing a bunch out to Julia again for those lucky to be close to go to the crop and I'm willing to swap with those that would like to swap with me
I have more pages to fit in my little book there.
You can see Julia's quirky bird blocking off my girl's face but she be shown all done soon enough 

I was looking through the ATC to get inspiration even though I already have one made.  I altered the backs up so far of 18 ATC cards now I'm just working on the front side of everything I am trying to do to them a little different each one and there might be a few variations but so far 9 will be close to each other last year's ATC's are HERE  I did a zombie and not a zombie version

this is my space at the moment 
happy Wed and I'll be popping around to as many people as I can
seeing the weather isn't that sunny and it is actually cold outside I don't see any gardening 
soon perhaps a good cuppa tea or coffee and a book to read is in order :)
Opps no wait ATC making with a good cuppa !!

WOYWW

Happy WOYWW everyone May you be having a bright and sunny week 
Well we've been having such wonderful weather we've barely been inside but have started working on the backyard which really needed to have the fences fixed up two sides at least.
So I've only been creating a few sketches this week on faces I played in a challenge and it started the ball rolling into a few perhaps some new face digi in the works because of this 
Close up of the faces done in pencil and pen at the moment 
and working on a new butterfly one wing done now to finish it off 

So I will try my best to get around to as many desks as I can 
Have a wonderful day

Pocket Letter

This is the best picture I could take as some of this I decorated inside and outside on the PL,
and I've sent this off to Claire it's her first swap and my third for a PL
I'm hoping she will like this I just loved the paper I started off with  and went from there
not sure if she knows it but part of this GLOWS IN THE DARK thought I grabbed my clear Embossing but was glow in the dark so I thought that would work even better

WOYWW

HAPPY WOYWW !!!

Here's a little Sneak peak of an Image I've been painting with watercolours 
from Limited Runs using Face -1 I'm still working on adding in the finer lines and stuff 
but it is a work in progress for an upcoming challenge for my DT  it's been so long 
since I've actually used real watercolours, I've missed using them 

So here's my space this week Yep moved some stuff around again :P
I know it's pretty tidy but I started painted and that's what has been keeping me busy
Plus I can be a messy painter so I move everything out of the way 
The Little Green/Blue Pot is for my water and holds my pens when dry I had to 
put it way up top seeing my little kitty I just caught drinking out of it thank goodness 
water colours are non- toxic I hope ... Or there will be coloured puke somewhere in our 
house lol
You can see my sneak peak of my water colour there (covered over seeing I can't show it all just yet)
Happy WOYWW 
hugs Nikki 

Plus I know that Anne is having some candy too ends on the 26th
she will be posting it today sometime :)
