They Went Peacefully About Their Tasks

This was an interesting project. I took the leftover pages from last years Stampington calendar and decided to use them in my art. 

For this one by Colette Copeland, I covered the existing image in heavy body acrylic but left the shoes, bird and quote uncovered.

please click to enlarge

Then I added in my own image and embellished the whole thing with paint and Stabillo pencil.

I love the challenge of starting with an existing calendar page. 

This is my first time trying to draw a face in the style of Mindy Lacefield of Tim's Sally

I’m impressed, I have to say. Really hardly ever do I encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you have got hit the nail on the head. Your concept is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough persons are talking intelligently about. I am very joyful that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this. online casinos for us players
