Oooooo, I love PRISMACOLOR pencils; they’re so soft and have such a rich palette.

You can tell I’m supposed to be marking exams. Ooooo, I’ll just make one more bit of art, and then I’ll start marking…ha!
Who knows how a nose goes? Honestly. I hate drawing noses…time for more practice; so, smell ya later.
All the blues in my new pencil set are so vibrant. I. am. loving. them. 💖
I am, seriously, loving my new pencils! ♡♡♡ so many colours and shades; I’m in heaven!
It’s all about layering…
These pieces have at least seven layers built into them already…and I’m not even close to being finished!
Yes, those are my cat’s whiskers embedded into my work. Yes, they’re real. No cats were harmed in the making of this piece; I collected the whiskers, from around my house, for a number of years, as they fell out naturally. Yes. I am aware how weird that is and no, I don’t have a problem being the crazy cat lady. Any other questions? No? Good, I’m off to make a tinfoil hat then…
It’s amazing what you can do with a packet of cheap ($2), colored school pencils. Burnishing on distressed, recycled wood is my new favorite friend!
