Happy Star Wars day! I didn’t even know there was such a thing, and yet I guess I celebrated this weekend when I spent Saturday afternoon with The Wayward Saints (Alexa’s improv troupe) at Starbase Columbus. It was nice to be out in the sunshine, but I’m trying to get over a bad sore throat, so yesterday, I spent the day resting and making art.
The lovely and talented LeeAnn Denzler posted a tutorial on her coloring pencil technique, so I gave it a go. This is based on a template that the talented and generous Ben Kwok provides every week in his facebook group Ornation Creation. It took me the better part of the day (about 12 hours), but I really love my fishy. It was so fun that I decided to try the same techinque for this week’s Diva Challenge, which was to use the tangle Brella. I’m not as fond of this one. I think it is because I had no clear idea of what colors I wanted when I started. Oh, and if you couldn’t tell, my string is a rather lopsided Death Star. May the force be with you!
