A creative day after a night that was fairly restless!

I managed to work out what I wanted to do with the 3 colours that I never/hardly ever use & then discovered why...they don't really exist in my repertoire.

Papers & white ink/embossing powder

Pastel pencils & eyeshadow still using the same image at the top right
 Watercolour ing with felt pens ans watercolour paint (sap green!) then added some stencilling using chipped sapphire DI.

I'm guessing I won't be rushing out to buy these colours in any great hurry!

I also managed to find my Barcelona photos that I'd been hunting for....

So I drew a black border around the under paper, added a happy mail border I'd got, die cut some letters & coloured with Promarkers and added the chimneys from the magical building of La Pedrera in Barcelona. A little black intense pencil around the images & letters to finish off.

And finally my inchie! I might have to explain this for some of the non British though :-)
The theme is throne, now, we all, of course have one of these, don't we? No? Course you do!
In some parts of the country the toilet is referred to as the throne and as I did not feel up to drawing a throne or a toilet, I went with the sign one sees for the ladies room :-). A free stamp image on shrink plastic, a little off on the shrinking of the width but it's now on a piece of black card to make up the missing sliver... 

There are a couple more obscure ones to come this year so I might have to get my thinking cap on soon!
