Week 47 Compilation Board!
Week Forty Seven in a snapshot 🙂
329 days down, 36 to go…
Day 327 – 2018 Fairy
To celebrate the start of 2018, I painted “2018” in various shades of watercolour paints before layering it up with coloured pens and colouring pencils.
I then drew a silhouette of a fairy on the reverse and cut it out using my craft knife and placed the reverse silhouette on the cutting mat.
Day 298 – Shrinkles Fairy
Using an old fashioned technique for today’s fairy, I coloured in the fairy design on the Shrinkle paper before putting it in the oven for a couple of minutes. It shrunk considerably and is really quite solid!
Day 257 – Flamenco Fairy
Drawn to celebrate a special birthday today. I decided to go with a Spanish theme of a flamenco dancer.
Drawn with a fine HB pencil and coloured softly with colouring pencils.
Day 244 – Colourful Geometric Fairy
I drew a gentle outline in HB pencil before creating geometric shapes using colouring pencils and drawing stripes in varying directions to fill in the shapes.
Day 37 – St Patrick’s Day Fairy
As it is St Patrick’s Day today, I had to have a red-headed fairy in a green dress bearing shamrocks and a pint of Guinness…
Drawn in 2H and coloured in colouring pencils 🙂
Day 22 – World Book Day Fairy
As it is World Book Day today, I wanted my daily fairy to have some books with her. I drew this in 2H pencil, coloured it in with basic colouring pencils before going over the outlines again in 2H to add a bit more definition.
When I took the photo, I added a “retro” filter which added a bit more depth to the picture as a whole.
Happy World Book Day!
Day 19 – Rainbow Fairy
I had a whole page of these sweeping triangular patterns and coloured it in using every colour exactly equally (yes, I counted as I went along 🙂 ).
It was only when the page was finished that I thought it would be a nice, bright and colourful addition to my other fairy creations. I drew the silhouette on the reverse of the page and cut her out, trying to keep as much definition as possible.
