Day 12 of #90daysofblogging

Today is day 12 of the 90 days of blogging challenge a few of my friends and I decided to try. Each day I find it getting harder and harder to blog. It's not that I feel like I have to create something everyday (although I should) but even just finding something to blog about. And believe me, I know I have a lot to blog about. My cyber friends have no idea where I live and what it looks like, so I know I can find lots to show and tell, LOL.

Dede Willingham, you can catch her youtube video here.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DCJ9nRhLT0M, is a wonderful artist. She drew out an image of a little girl, Amelia, for us to color pencil in with her. The first video she tells what she will be using and how to find the picture of Amelia to follow along. She does morning ustreams and is known as inkwell, if you would like to check her out some day. Her portrait drawings are out of this world.

Anyway, I followed along with her and the picture of Amelia. I am going to show 2 different pictures of the same drawing because just like with a computer, I don't know how to adjust my camera....

  Maybe I should read the manual on how to use the camera.......nah......that wouldn't be me, I like to just jump right in and then scream when things don't work out right LOL It was fun following along with her and I did learn a few things. When she says use toned paper, don't use a pale green!!! And, I need new colored pencils. She used Prisma and I used Prismacolor Verithin, not the same thing. But I liked learning from her so much that I plan on doing the next one with her also. Go check out her videos, there are 4 total.

Well, thanks for stopping by and please visit the other ladies blogs that are doing this challenge with me.

You did awesome Donna!! I don't color with the colored pencils well at all and am always in awe of those who can. I think I'm in agreement that the green paper doesn't do your girl much good.....lol. Keep at it girl....we've got this!!
