Lil girls luv christmas...

On Friday the wonderful MANON...very generously gave us a free class over on Amy's channel.  Manon showed us how she paints her little girls, and we all had a go at them. I have to say it isn't easy arting along, trying to find the right colours, and watch and listen and type in the chat box ....but we did have a great time.

This is my lil girl from that night, so easy and lots of fun to do.

I am making an altered book along with Amy, OVER HERE...why don't you come and join us...

I tipped my lil girl into my altered book..

I wanted to make more lil girls, and decided to make some into Christmas cards. Having done the larger one in the class, it was easy peasy to do them again on a smaller scale.

The first two..

I love I made another two...

Seriously I freaking love them....two more...

uh oh...cannot resist...must make

hee hee just can't stop...

ok these are the last ones, I swear...

Why don't you go watch the class then you can make them too.

Manon will show you how to draw the face, colour it with promarkers, blend out with gesso and shade with promarkers.

I  don't think shading over gesso is a good idea with promarkers though, I have tried it before and it kills them, so I have changed these up slightly and I do my first layer with promarkers, then gesso then shading with prisma pencils.
