Stuck outside my comfort zone

For a few days now I have been trying to finish the first ever ‘Create and Learn Markers Monthly Class’ from Kit and Clowder.  The image is from Polkadoodles and to be honest not one I would normally go for. There were a lot of new techniques to try in this class and although I am not absolutely happy with the finished result I am glad I kept going and really enjoyed the learning journey. A lot more practice is needed before I can consider it good enough to turn into a card.


I still need to practice blending out the sky and the clouds. The hair (girl and unicorn) needs more work and I still cannot get noses right. I am, however, very happy with her tights!

Thanks for stopping by. 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.

    This is fabulous Pippa, you seem to have the hang of the colouring. Don’t see a reason to berate yourself 🙂

    Actually, I think you have done a splendid job on the starry sky, and blending of your clouds too. Noses are sort of hard to do anyway, and I would think especially so, in a small area such as this face. I think it’s fantastic the way you’ve done the work, and applaud you for being willing to try an image that is ‘not you’. I have a difficult time with images like this. (well, you can see that by the images I use! LOL). Hope you had a grand Sunday, and are feeling ok. TFS & Hugs
