Happy New Year!

It's here... a brand new and fresh year. There is something so wonderful about the first day of the year. It has an almost magical quality to it, bringing with it so many opportunities and chances to work toward our dreams. May your New Year be filled with happiness and blessings!

Today was such a fabulous day for me. All relaxation and no worries (after we ironed out our new plan for the year) makes me a happy girl!

I have been working on my coloring and in particular I want to learn how to make clothing look like it actually has folds. I used Copics and Prisma pencils on the skirt to try to add some dimension. Somewhere I had read you could use plain old rubbing alcohol to blend when using Copics and Prisma's together. It worked fine for me! I was careful to use my Copics prior to using the Prisma's to protect the blending tip on my markers. My image is a new one from Fairy Knoll called Music, so it seemed perfect to make a gift card holder for music. :) Papers are Basic Grey Lime Rickey and the sketch is from Cardablities.

Have a beautiful day!
