Toddler One….in Check

Finished the ballet slipper shoe….thought the flower motif on top would’ve been more difficult, just made it look realistic not exact.

Couldn’t resist adding my markers to the edges.  Just seems to work for me.

Wish that this dress wasn’t so neat and new…didn’t leave much room for imaginary folds.

This was a fun transition from colored pencils to watercolor….[ & watercolor pencils].  I’m still trying to figure out how much water is too much.  Because the tiniest bit of water can move that pigment fast.

Hope everyone has a Happy Thanksgiving!

I think you did a wonderful job! I would have liked a blue shoe. Even in the photograph i wish the toddler had a blue

I've been fiddling with water color too for the first time....nothing as intricate as yours though.......move the color but not saturate the paper.....hmmm....Happy Thanksgiving! 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!
