Growing Pains….Subsiding

Well, because I don’t know any better.  I’ve gone in and applied “marker” (Ohhh….Nooo) to the pink legs to help even out my edges. 

And I even used marker for the paisley pattern in the bandana (Ohhh….Nooo). Since I’m all about product, I really don’t care if that’s allowed or not.  I just want to replicate what I see….I’m not entering any contests. Whew!

And I probably did the “unthinkable” on the girls white shirt. I used graphite pencils (Ohhh….Nooo)…!!  I even went in with my darker graphite pencil and worked some of those shadows.  I like it better this way! 
Still a few more things to do: 
  • hands
  • smooth out the Mary Jane shoes
  • buttons
  • bench in background
  • miscellaneous details
This is really getting fun!

I almost always end up using marker somewhere for something....like you said...even up the edges or some really fine detail....I guess that may really be a faux pas for somebody but it is about the end product to me. I think your picture is lovely. Hugs! deb

About Me

My photo
By day...I work in the Healthcare field, where every .. i.. has to be dotted and every ..t.. has to be crossed. This blog is the place where I can let myself go and have some fun. I am on a journey. A journey I started a long time ago, but it has been a bit sidetracked with Navy Wife relocations and raising kids. I finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and I have got some time for me. No, I will not be one of those moms walking around the house with Empty Nest Syndrome, I have got way too much to do, to learn, to create. Sure, once the kids are gone I will miss them....but hey, there is always the phone, the email, the texting and the Plane tickets! I love my life and my family and It is fun moving into this new stage. I am into Digital Scrapbooking, photography, journaling, Art Journaling and Drawing. I am a do-it-yourselfer and I am trying to teach myself to draw. I am finding that it takes a lot of patience, lots of practice and a good eraser!
