A New Year already?!

Whoops! It's been nearly 3 months since I last blogged!!?! I was struggling a bit before Christmas with my old glasses not being up to the job when colouring but having picked up my new ones on Christmas Eve I can now colour again!

I've started with this one from Escape to Wonderland (by Good Wives and Warriors) using Caran D'Ache Pablo pencils and Conté a Paris pastel pencils.

Both books are spiral bound and printed on one side on lovely quality white paper. They have 70 pages of shaded and unshaded images which are fab to colour!
