Lets Play Nice….Figure 1

Had my headphones on and listening to my current favorite song…and coloring away at a pretty good clip!

Adding my layers to my shirt.

Even getting brave enough to work on the hand.

I thought the shirt needed some interest…..endowed it a bit.  And that’s when I should’ve walked away.  For some reason….don’t know what I was thinking….I decided to erase with my exacto knife….since it worked so well on the hair from the previous sketch…..Well, I created a big mess!  Tore the paper up pretty well. 

I finally walked away…but couldn’t stop thinking about fixing it.  That’s when I wrote this note!…..cuz I really wasn’t fixing anything.

Live and Learn.  Hoping my art teacher has some magic cure.

LOVE the look of the jeans & the girl's hand! I'm amazed at what you do with colored pencils!

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!
