Good Morning sweet peeps!
How are you all this morning? Good I hope! I'm so glad it's hump day already. I could use another weekend already. It's just been one of those weeks, ya know? I just want it done already. Although today's ride home from work should be interesting....I'll have a large bird in my truck tonight. :) Haha! The company I work for gives each of their employees a turkey for Thanksgiving! Sweet, right?! I'll be taking it over to my in-laws for our Thanksgiving feast. YUM!
I've been trying to get used to coloring in my new room for a couple of weeks now and for some reason it's really strange working in a new space. Is that weird?! In the apartment, I was in the middle of everything (smack in the middle of the living room and dining room) and now it's all quiet in the room and I'm almost looking for a distraction now! So bizarre! I'm sure I'll get used to it soon though. Anyway, so one of the images I colors up this week (yesterday actually!), was this image by Sarah Kay.
There's something about her images that really lends itself to the watercoloring style, it's there?? I just love how you only get a climpse of the kids faces and they could be anyone's kid. As usual, I colored this up with my reinkers and aquapainter brush on Strathmore Bristol Vellum (not really vellum). It's nice, thick and smooth! When I color, always pick the upper right hand corner of the image for where my sunlight is coming from and all my shadows are on the left hand side of any objects. I did the opposite to this on this card because more of the image (the little girl) was 'facing' the left hand side, so I switched corners and put my 'sun' in the upper left hand corner. Does that make sense?! I hope so.
The layout is one I keep going back to again and again. I can't remember where I got it from or when I used it first, but it's a keeper! I figured the image required a simple but layered layout. The paper an oldie but goodie MME collection....which I can't remember the name of right now! Sorry!
Thank you SO MUCH for stopping by today!
