I've been colouring!

Remember my little monkeys that I drew for the Odds and Soxlets blog? Well.. I decided to have a bit of time for 'me' last night and did a bit of colouring.. here's how they turned out!

I decided to use my Birdsong papers (still love these!) and kept the layering to a minimum to show the images better.

I used glitter for the raindrops, and even added a polka dot to the coat..

This was the second image I did, where monkey is sat on a tree trunk.

I used inks and a baby wipe to create the background sky, and grassed areas. Here's the close up.

I must admit... I've got a little bit of a passion for these little guys.. take a look at Erica's blog and site, you'll not be disappointed... beautiful handmade, soft toys, made by Erica herself. Perfect for Christmas.

And if you want to see our little edition to the Austin household, here she is - lovely eh?!

Anyway, I must get on.. I'm trying to get on top of my jobs for this week as we have the Live Crafty Chat session tomorrow over on the Docrafts forum. I've just spent the last day or so finishing off some projects for the Docrafts Advent calendar for this year, and I even did a bit of designing on Photoshop... so watch this space! Sadly, I can't reveal what I've made just yet, but I'll share as soon as I can!

Happy crafting everyone!
