Angel #3


The online course I am taking by Kelly Rae Roberts is really helping me to stay motivated with art journal. Really pleased with how my latest angel turned out and the colours I ended up using. Her face was created using gelatos.

Angel #2


Continuing some art journaling inspired by Kelly Rae Roberts Spirit Wings online course.
I have used Big brush pens for a long time but always on top of paint, so it was great to try something different on this face and blend them straight onto gel medium surface. I am really pleased with how she turned out and can't wait to get started on the next lesson.

Snowman in May!


Made these cards on the hottest day here in the UK so far in 2017...thought colouring snowmen might make me feel a little cooler. No such luck, went non traditional colours but really pleased with how they turned out.
