What I am doing

This is what I have been doing. I had bought a book by Kelly Rae Roberts and was trying out a project from that. I am making this for my niece whose birthday is coming soon. Hope she will like it. There are one or two spots I need to cover up which I will do with something. In the project she says to use alcohol inks with paint. For me it didn't work very well and then I got those blobs where the ink sort of didn't spread. It does disappear rather quickly so one has to be very quick in mixing and applying. Also I think I went over the paint too much so it has become a be too blended which was not the idea. Oh well this is all new to me as I never do this sort of artwork so I guess I am learning. One thing I do like about this sort of art is you can finish it quickly.


  1. it's coming along beautifully, shashi!

  2. I think it looks wonderful so far. I loved Kelly Rae's book it was very inspiring. Can't wait to see it finished :)

  3. I have this book also and love it.
