Miss Green & AJJ map

Hello, good day and welcome!
Today I'm linking  up to Kim Dellow 'Show your face' 
A soft pastel drawing - plus I used some coloured pencils for eyes and finer details. Duh! why are eyes so hard for me to draw the same!

and a map I'm linking to AJJ where there's still a few days to join in with the wonderful challenge where the theme is 'maps' 


I used a TH compass mask, Viva Décor map stamp (can't remembers who makes the quote stamps). Inktense pencils.
Note to self: It is helpful  (and saves time)to write down what you have used at time!
Thanks for visiting
Have a great week

Miss Freckle Face and a Map for AJJ

Hi everyone
Happy Sunday to you, hope you are having a lovely weekend.

Its been a while since I was able to join in with Kim Dellow's 'Show your face' and although not back to drawing/painting properly yet, I still have some pieces I haven't uploaded yet... so here is one of them using mainly a little spray ink and some Inktense pencils.

Also linking today to AJJ challenge where the theme for June is maps.  I love maps and have a huge collection of old maps I bought to help with family history - I'm tempted to start cutting some of them up and use on projects but for now I've just used rubber stamps.
The rubber stamps are by Viva Décor and I used a TH compass mask with 'tumbled glass' distress stain and also used 'explore' die. Background aquamarker pens (not sure what you call it, but I scribbled on a plastic bag with pens, then a light spritz of water and pressed it down on the paper.)
 Enjoy the rest of the weekend... the sun is shining here and I'm torn between doing some gardening, watching Formula 1 grandprix or crafting..............mmmm or maybe do all!
Thanks for stopping by
and for your comments
