Hope you like it !!!!!!


I started a parchment class about a month ago, and absolutely fell in love with it. It is soooooooooo relaxing even the girlies are having ago....


I finished my first piece yesterday so I thought I would post on here and see what my cyber buddies thought....


If anyone wants the pattern email me and I will send it to you.....she is gorgeous...


For those of you that want to know...

1st I traced the pattern using a mapping tool and white ink

2nd I traced the ladies face and neck using a mapping tool and sepia ink

3rd I traced her necklace and ear ring using mapping tool and gold ink

4th I coloured her hair with blending pencils (WH Smith do a box of 36 for £3.99 and they are great)

5th I then used Dorso crayon (thingys) to shade the pink of her face, the background a shade of peach and her hat and shoulders purple (I have been told that if you can't afford the proper pergamarno Dorso oil ( about £5) for blending them Linseed oil works the same....but muppet here bought the wrong one so still had to buy the proper stuff (SHHHHHHHHHH don't tell Nige lol)

6th I used the technique called "dip dab" around the brim of her hat (all the little dots)

7th I then painted inside her ear ring and the ovals on her necklace with pearl paint

8th I then did all the embossing which I loved doing along with the shading on the flowers and leaves

9th I then painted her eyes and lips, turning her over to lightly emboss her lips giving her a pout

10th I then shaded in the creases of her hat and dress using blending pencils

11th I then used a 2-split tool around the edge (which was the part I was dreading, to do all that work then rip it)


Then its done....lol


sorry about the waffling but I thought I would explain how I did my pretty lady and I am so addicted to parchment...



TAKE CARE Shell xxx

I've always said I wouldn't do parchment because of all the time you have to put in. But this has changed my mind. I'd love a copy Shell. That is so so beautiful. Do you need many tools?

Thanks Val
