Something a bit different...


Morning Everyone,
I hope that the new week finds you all safe and well. Its the first day of our Autumn Holidays here and Im up bright and early as its car MOT day!! Argh!!!! Fingers crossed my wee peep peep passes!!! 
My creation today is something a bit different than my usual creations. I was invited to a Taster of a Lifebook 2021 and when I saw one of the freebie classes on offer I had to join!!! I love foxes!!!! 
I didnt have any of the items that Tamara the tutor has so I made do with my crafty stash!!! 
I have to admit that on Friday night when I started it I nearly left it there as I felt it was a huge disaster!!!! 
Here it is at that point!!! We had a laugh about my rubbish painting skills. On Saturday morning while in the throws of Storm Alex though I decided that having listened to a few of Sandy Allnocks tutorials for copics that often your creations initially look like a "hot mess" and to keep going. So thats what I did and Im so happy that I managed. 
The video was difficult to follow as it was a speeded up and there was no explaining on it so I followed my gut!! It was also pouring rain so I didnt have anything else to do!!!! 
I keep going into the crafty room now to have a wee look at my make. I cant beleive I managed it!!! I even incorporated a wee bit of glitter paint as it wouldn't be me if I didnt!!! 

10 x 12 Base.
Watercolour Paints
Prismacolour Pencils
Pastel Pencils
White Acrylic Paint
White Chalk Pen.
Black Promarker.
Black Fineliner.
13 Arts Ayeeda Acrylic Paint Silver glitter. 

Thanks for dropping by today,

Stay Safe,
Love and Sparkles,

Hazel xx
