And our lovely garden prompted me to play with my new Inktense pencils. I only bought six pencils separately, rather than a set, just so I could experiment with them. I think I'll be buying a few more ... These samples were originally a grey on grey print cotton, firstly coloured with a light Dyna Flow wash, and then features picked up with the pencils. Very easy - just colouring in!
It was also our son's birthday during the week, so we had a great night celebrating with a family party. Mmm ... homemade paella with loads of fresh mussels, calamari, prawns and fish - lovingly cooked by Jim, and I made and decorated party style cupcakes, and a mud cake birthday cake. All shared by our lovely family - nothing could be better.
