Another FO!

It seems to have worked so here is that second post I told you about in the last post. 🙂 And if you didn’t read all the way to the end you will have no idea what I’m talking about.  hehe.

this is a Christmas pressie for a good friend. I found out she loves sea shells and I decided I wanted to do something with them. My original idea was to make a wire-wrapped fancy shell for a necklace but then I went in this direction. I’ve been really wanting to do some painting, but I was worried since I had never drawn shells before. I had the frames already so I painted them oceany colors. then I drew the shells, inked them and used Grumbacher watercolors to paint them. I used a white gel pen for some addition highlight and touched up some of the inked lines.

I’m really happy with how it came out. What do you guys think of my first shells?

#210 Diva Challenge…a spiral

So I took a nap this afternoon and woke up with this picture in my head. It came out pretty much as I pictured it, or close enough to it. I used my new Grumbacher watercolors, Derwent Watercolor pencils and Micron pens.
