WOYWW week sixty something...


Wednesday again! If you don't know what WOYWW is all about by now then check out Julia's blog at the Stamping Ground - click on the WOYWW badge on the sidebar of my blog.

Well, Dad loved the mini book I'm glad to say. We had a lovely day over in the Lakes with my Mum and Dad and some old friends who came along for the party. Here is a picture of my Dad with his cake (not made by me I'm sorry to say). He enjoys cycling, hence the cyclist coming down the hill on the cake!



So, what's going on with my desk this week? These photos were actually taken last night. I was making a card for a friend and then when I finished that I was having a bit of an experiment with my Promarkers having looked up some of the tutorials kindly recommended to me by fellow WOYWWers. My first attempt at skin colouring makes her look like she has had an accident with fake tan! So I gave up with that one and started a second with lighter colours. I'm rather pleased with the result. The only thing is I've tested my pens a bit close to her so I couldn't trim her into a neat rectangle or oval, oops! I've therefore just cut round her and will have to mount her onto a neat rectangle or oval instead!





Half way through colouring, one of the pen tops flew off...tearing apart of the craft room ensued...couldn't find it so decided to take a photo of the resulting chaos...and guess what...can you see it? The pen top was under the heater, phew! Don't want my brand new promarkers drying out already!!





I managed to get around 30 desks last week, not as good as my previous week which was around 40 but I did have the excuse of being away at the weekend (when I do most of my visiting). I'm away again on Saturday night this week, but not for the whole day so I will see how many I can get round! Apologies if I don't get to you, I'm sure I will get round everyone in the end!!

See you all next week x

Wonderful to see that your dad liked his book. Good of you to share it with us. I'm really late to the party today due to my flaky internet. Happy WOYWW.

Oh glad you found your pen. Looks like your dad had a fabulous day and his birthday cake looks yummy. I just love the whiff of joy girl blowing kisses I have used her a lot. I always use Artkure skin colour pen for faces and bodies. I also use a lot of copic, I do have a few promarkers which I was given. Have a lovely day big hugs Jo.xxx

Enjoy playing with your Promarkers. I often lose the lids but usually somewhere on the desk but as it's sucha mess I have difficulty finding them :-/ I often end up cutting round my images 'cos I've gone over the lines too much!
Lovely cake

Love your colouring and the image is great too. Glad your Dad had a great day - we took my Dad to Bristol for his 70th and just got back this afternoon - he had a good one too :)

Rosie said...

I'm just getting into Promarkers too ... did anyone warn you that it's addictive and that you suddenly develop a need to have ALL the colours? Your Dad's cake made me laugh - it was super, whoever made it!

hiya

had a good snoop even zoomed in on the photo's, so I could compare you to others on the scale. I had both slots for 5 and 7 free, but in comparison today think this week your a 5/10. MMmmmmmmmm let's see if you can make more mess like I try to next week.

thanks for the visit

Julia Dunnit said...

Ah your colouring is already skilled - and that thing about testing too close to the image and blahdy blah - I think it's a right of passage, you have to do, to learn not to! Love the shot of your dear dad - what a fab cake!

Gez said...
