~Taking Flight~

This is my one of my WIP (works in progress). I use to sketch all the time, sadly some where along this journey I call life....had stopped. I purchased a journal, purchased a book called "Taking Flight" and have been watching "You Tube" videos and here I am...with my little angel...

It was silly of me to put all this work into my journal and I have yet to do some more shading around the stars and such...but when I sketched her...she was begging me to be brought to life!
She is only penciled in (with artist pencils), but in person, it looks so neat the way I blended the colors.

This picture (and lighting) did not do this justice, but thought I would share. I made the paper wings, stars and crowns and covered them with fine, clear glitter...Now I must put them to something different then paper and mix it up with paints and such. I am a bit of a chicken, but did buy some wood yesterday...

Outside this morning was absolutely BEAUTIFUL! We did not receive any snow, but with the warmer temps and the moisture in the air, all the "FLUFF" collected to the trees. I had to show the close up picture, because the ones that were farther away...didn't show up too well. I must go, I have done to much playing today and must "crack down" and get some work done. Ta ta for now kiddies, ~Tonya
