Well..I have been inspired...



Many of you know I have been very inspired recently by the work of Shona Cole, and her book, the artistic mother...
well, this made me venture out and look at other mixed media artists books and i found the work of kelly rae roberts....just love her style and she has a book out that gives you step by step directions in creating art work like hers....
well. i decided to give it a try using some of the papers i made in from shonas book, and mixed them with the style from kellys book...can't quite do eyes...lol...but non the less i vm reasonably happy with what i produced, even if it is copied...the colours are a little different in real life, but i am sure you get the idea...
so the green dress girl i haven't quite finished....need some words of wisdom on her...the other is a present for a friend...i hope she likes it...

ok...well until; next time
lots of it
