Why fit in ?

Hello everyone,

I've been playing with some stamps, pencils and paints... I created an art journal page which is quite far out of my comfort zone, using red and green on the same page ! Eek....
I bought the newish Dyan Reavely stamps 'Winston & Lulu' and I spent an afternoon colouring Lulu with my new Caran d'Ache Pablo pencils. These pencils are an addition to my Polychromos and I bought them because my friend Karen Haselden was raving about them. And I agree, they are lush... so soft and easy to blend ! Love them.... You'll find Karen's very colourful and fabulous blog HERE by the way !
Here's my page :

Of course my colouring is not nearly as good as Karen's but I will keep on practising.... 

Here's a detail photo.. 

The background was created with Dylusions paints and Archival Inks. All stamps used are  Dyan Reavely's Dylusions. This was great fun making as I was able to use some stamps I haven't used for a long time... 

Thank you for stopping by today ! 


  1. Love this page Corrie, colouring looks fab I'm pondering the Pablo's but do I really need more pencils? Probably lol
