Floral Page!

 Hello Everyone, I hope today finds you well and having a good day whatever you're doing. It's snowing here and quite wet snow, so perhaps it won't lie. It's so dark too, not a every inspiring day or doing much.

Anyhoo, I finally managed to finish one of the pages from my Johanna Basford 2021 Planner, it took me ages and I have to be honest and say I was getting bored with it, but determined to keep going. I'm not a fan of mandala type images, but here it is;


I've used Crayola pencils and I'm really pleased with the effect. Of course they take time to blend and can't lay down as many layers as the more expensive pencils like Prismacolours, but still they did a decent job. I kept the colour pallet to shades of blue, pink and green, with the little bits of gold and silver. Gel pens and  Stickles, although the sparkle doesn't show here.

My plan for this book is to colour a page a week, and true to form it's not going to plan lol.

Thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post, as always I very much appreciate that you take the time to visit and leave the comments.

A quick post today, so till next time,  keep yourselves safe,

My plans are already way behind. Can't say what I have done with the spare time either. I am not a mandala fan but I'm glad you persevered with yours as I do like the colour pallette. Hugs Mrs A.
