All Things New


Hiya folks!

Brrr, 'tis a chilly start here today, but at least it is dry! Fed up with the grey, windy and damp stuff. Wish spring would hurry on in and warm us all up. I'm itching to get in the garden!!

Hubby has an interview today over in Dyce near Aberdeen. He has to take loads of paperwork with him, so it's looking pretty positive already! Everything crossed for you hubby!!

Today sees the first challenge of the new year over at the Delicious Doodles Challenge, and we start with 'All Things New' to get us going with something nice and easy!
Here is what I made this time:


I have used a few new things here.
First up, the image, which is a new one at the Delicious Doodles Shop: Katarina.
I only printed her out once for a change, and used my watercolour pencils for a bit of colour.

Next new thing was the backing paper, from a set of digi-papers by Raspberry Road, 'Winter Wonderland'. I followed this with some new stickles round the edge, some die-cut corner shapes and a couple of new ice-blue gems. Here is a close-up of the image, which was raised on foam pads:


I added some clear stickles onto her cloak, and a bit of the blue on her eyeshadow, just for some extra bling. Not too noticeable here, but there you go! LOL. The text was added before printing out the paper.

Righty then, off I trot to sort out another image I drew a few days ago. Got as far as scanning it in, and I don't like it!!! Hmmmm... Catch ya later peeps!!
