Children of the Wild

Hello all, just a super quick post from me today as I wanted to share a first project that I did from a new online class I plan to really get into over the summer. The Class is called Children of the Wild, by Kate Thomson, hence the title of my post.
The class can be found on the Jeanne Oliver Ning site, - here is a link: http://jeanneoliver.ning.com/group/children-of-the-wild

I have only watched the first video, and this was just a little bit of fun play, using an inspiration photo she shared and just part of her very first technique. I did the little portrait on an old tag that was flying around.
I just used, gesso, a normal HB pencil, a Stabilo  All pencil and a mix of gesso and white acrylic paint. Kate uses way more products in her sample piece and I hope to get into that soon.

Well that's it, thanks for dropping in and see you next time!

  31. I'm blown away - lost in her eyes - pretty much captures exactly how I'm feeling at the moment, and therefore finding it hard to summon the positive energy to go blog-visiting.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
