Day 2 of 11...

Hi all! Well, today I'm back with something a bit unusual for me. It all started when I lent my friend my Prisma pencils to play with. She loved them and recently gave them back to me, with plans of purchasing her very own set. Being the untidy wretch that I am, they got added to the pile on the end of my craft desk. Well, yesterday, I tidied that very desk and got to thinking... how long ago was it that I last played with my Prismas? After a bit of pondering, I decided it must have been about 3 years ago. Yikes. That level of neglect is really naughty, especially as they weren't exactly what you'd call 'cheap'! So, I thought I'd whip them out and have a go. 



So there you go. Not a Copic marker in sight! Am I pleased with my effort? Yes and no....

No - Because my colouring looks really amateurish and I am far too heavy handed to achieve that amazing fade-in-fade-out effect that so many of you have so beautifully perfected.

Yes - Because I actually stepped out of my comfort zone, played with some forgotten stash and wasn't thoroughly appalled by the effort. However, maybe that was more down to the cute image and fab papers and lovely embellies....!
  
Anyway, whilst I can promise that I won't be hanging up my Copics any time soon, it's nice to know I still have options!
