Pencil Practice

I'm in awe of Sally's colouring, she's always ready to give hints, tips and encouragement with using Polychromos but what I really wish is that I lived next door so that I could have some lessons ;)

I've made up my mind that 2014 is going to be the year of the pencil so let's hope we see some improvement by the end of the year!

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
PCDB83, Stitching,
CCC50, Birthday,
ATSAM77, Make your mark,
CBD, Birthdays,
SRC209, Birthdays,
MIM173, Anything goes.

Thanks for stopping by,

Well I have just invested in these pencils hunny and I was going to say that perhaps we could learn together, but looking at Tom Mouse I don't think you need any lessons! This is gorgeous, great job! Hugs xx

Wow Julie.... He is looking good ;)
Looks like you are certainly getting the hang of it.....the card looks slightly textured too which I find also helps. I have also found some different blending stumps by Derwent that are quite soft and blend the pemcils really well with the Sansador :)
I wish I was closer too..... Keep it up honey xxx
