I guess we have all heard the saying "If at first, you don't succeed....try, try again!" Well, that is exactly what I did yesterday! I had visited one of my favorite digi sites, "A Day for Daisies" and found this darling little raccoon. I printed him out several times & sat down to color him. My first attempt was using my Prismacolor pencils & Gamsol. Although it was passable, it wasn't exactly what I was hoping for so I grabbed another one & did it with my alcohol markers. A little better, but still not great. So, I decided to pull out some of my Twinkling H2o's and do one in watercolor. Truthfully, I wasn't all that happy with it either, but at that point I had 3 images made up & ready to be made into cards so I printed out a sentiment for each and forged ahead. I made some cute "sunflowers" with Die-namics Upsey-Daisies & grabbed some of my precious stack of gingham.
This was my first attempt with the pencils...
This was attempt #2 with markers...
This was the last attempt with the Twinkling H2o's.......
Have you ever had a day where you just couldn't get that look you were after? It's so frustrating!
But, at least I got 3 cards done!
Hope you are having a fantastic weekend! I'm meeting friends for lunch & we are stamping after! Yea!!!!!! Food, fun & friends....what more could you ask for!
Catch you later!
