I did wonder how I would get on today because my reading glasses broke last night! However, a quick trip out this morning and I managed to buy 2 new pairs. Also, I checked how much coloured netting I had and found a piece of purple and a little piece of red. That meant a trip to Abakhan where I bought this little lot.
Only cost £1.80!! Bargain.
There was nothing much on tv last night so I suffered artificial light, albeit a daylight one, and set to colouring my crazy birds.
I used watercolour pencils blending and drying as I went along. Karen has used some amazing colours in a most ingenious way so that was a learning point for me - how to mix colours. I really enjoyed myself.
Once I got back from the little shopping trip - and after having to do Ho*****rk!!!! - I die cut all the birds and their hats etc.
I just have to tidy the white edges and make their tutus.
I may be a while cutting, sewing and gluing so will pop back tomorrow with what could be the final stages to a finished canvas.
