It’s Lil Monster’s Turn

Well I have to say I’m liking taking some time to colour!  I should be doing a little more cleaning before I get started in to this or my New Years resolution to craft is going to go up in smoke!  I hate crafting in a mess and my office has been in disarray for months and months!

Today I’ve used Lil Monster’s Balloon and once again my Tombow Markers.  I don’t have many colours in these markers so I am finding the colour range a little restrictive, but I have to resist spending any money on more when I have so many other mediums that I can be using.  I also have already recently purchased more watercolours (I’ll share later this week – still setting them up :)), and can’t allow myself to spend anymore!

Li Monster has always been one of my favourites, I have made many cards using this little guy.  He was designed by Helen Pickup from the UK, and is just adorable.  I once again coloured directly to the paper with the maker for his body and top, and then picked colour up from an acrylic block for the lighter shading.  The colour moves around easily and blends beautifully.  The shading was done with Pastel pencils.

Have a wonderful day and I’ll be back with my new watercolours 🙂

  1. You have done a great job with limited colours. He is too cute! I agree. I might need to give mine some love – I have 4 birthdays in the next 3 days and haven’t made one card yet! I am being firm with myself too there seems to be so many new colouring products I am sticking with those I have! I need to spend some time on cleaning duties too – it seems to be a never ending task with so many other things I would rather be doing 🙂
