Create and Learn

I may have already mentioned that I have been taking some colouring courses at Kit and Clowder, well this month Alyce launched a monthly subscription course Create and Learn. There is one for pencils and one for alcohol pens and they cover all the main brands so you can use whatever your existing pencil/pen of choice is. You can find more details at the web site Kit and Clowder. Being a bit of a course hoarder I decided to go for both. I have managed to complete the first of the pencil classes and loved doing it. It pushed me out of my comfort zone, past just colouring in an image and into the uncharted waters of backgrounds and scene setting. I tried the image with both Spectrum Noir pencils and my very ancient set of Derwent Studio, (to be honest the Derwents do not have a conversion chart so I had to colour match as best I could).

I have now turned the results into cards.

The image is Octavia Friendly Hugs from Polka Doodles and you get a 50% off voucher with the class.

Thanks for dropping in. Take care.



About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    Some super pencil coloring here. That’s always a challenge for me, but looks like you are a master. I have the Derwents, but no SN. I especially loved the way you have such texture in the sky on #2, but both are just gorgeous work. TFS & Hope all is well. Hugs
