Hi there... had a lovely couple of days... blubbed myself silly all day yesterday through the Royal Wedding, so beautiful and perfect... loved it!
Today, I shed a tear again..... because I had to ........ I hardly dare say it...... sharpen a pencil!!!! I am still in shock... my poor poor pencil!!! But I did apologise profusely as I went along!! :-)
Loooooook... it is all little.. and hiding in shame at the edge of the tin.... (it is actually much shorter now, but I couldn't bring my self to capture further humiliation for it!!)
OK OK.. I am a bit sad when it comes to my pencils, can't help it.... but I am hoping I put my poor little white pencil through the agony of being sharpened for a good reason......
Halfway through the first layer of white...... I am attempting a beautiful pattern by the wonderful Kannikar Sukseree, whose fabulous Colouring on Black Parchment Workshop I was incredibly lucky enough to attend earlier this month. It was a real mind blowing day for me... I loved the effect of colour on black.. and have finally found time to have another go.... not as easy though without Kanni within helping/rescuing distance!!!
This is how I have left it for tonight... I am Very Pleased with it, and stopped before I pushed my luck and ruined the whole thing! Tomorrow I will be attempting the colours.... with baited breath!
Wish me Luck!
