BLISS!! The sun is out! Almost forgot what it looks like. So much more cheerful with the extra light!
It's Sweet Sketch Wednesday time again, and here is another one of Arlana's lovely sketches:
It's a colour challenge this week too, and we were also challenged to use a Halloween theme if we wanted.
These were difficult colours to fit around Halloween, and I hope I have managed it. So this is going to be Harry the Spiders' last coming out party of the year! (Anyone remember that advert?) The spider image is my own, available at Delicious Doodles, my blog shop.
The skull paper is from Funky Hand, from their Salt + Pepper set. I converted the image to greyscale in Photoshop, so that I could get whatever colour I wanted in my page makeup package. The strip at the bottom was going to be ribbon, but I didn't have any to match these colours, so I printed some spooky 'Mwooohahahaha's' on green to match the darker green colour.
The green backing paper is from Gothic Milly by Tinker & Co, again made greyscale, so I get to make my own colour with it. What would I do without Photoshop??!! I printed some extra matching colours out to punch the flower shapes from. Harry the Spider is coloured with the usual watercolour pencils, and layered for extra spooky dimension!!
Your turn now then. Head over to Sweet Sketch Wednesday for some more fun ideas and inspiration from the fabby DT, and have a go yourself - these sketches are ace to work with!
