... just a quick post before I go and clean the windows outside - we have been living in a bit of a fog since our window cleaner did a bunk a certain number of months ago and they havent been touched - dirty devil that I am, anyhoo its a nice morning so I'm going to get that job out of the way.

First though I'll blog this whilst I finish my cuppa:

I've coloured this gorgeous image with promarkers (however I have dipped my toe in the dark side that is copics for the skin colours!) and added some fine glitter to the bottom of her dress and the material from her hat. The crown was coloured with a gold pen. The image and papers have been backed onto purple card and the dp's are papermania.  I have added flowers and little gems from my stash.

I would like to enter this into:

    PS - I'm terrible at cleaning my windows, leave it until you can hardly see through them!! Also I used Putty, Sunkissed Pink and Coral for my skin tones, if that's of any interest?

  9. Umm that should read - 'use Putty, Sunkissed Pink and Coral', otherwise it doesn't make sense!!
