Doing a little dance......

I am sitting here feeling very contented toady. It's a beautiful sunny day in the UK and I am just at the beginning of my two weeks off from work......feeling very relaxed right now, and as if I have all the time in the world!

So I thought I would blog this lovely little lady from Tiddly Inks today, who looks like she is  feeling very light hearted.
I found some old papers that I had printed a while back, and although they were originally colour, printing them in black and white only gave some lovely shades of grey so I decided to go for a red and black theme.

My lovely little girl is coloured with my trusty Spectrum Blendable pencils, blending oil and paper stubs, because I love the way it gives you some real contrast between light and shade.

The layout is kept nice and simple so that the little lady gets to take centre stage. I think she deserves it, don't you?

Thanks for visiting today, and I hope you are all having a lovely weekend too.

Bye for now.
