For this girl I sketched her with a regular mechanical pencil. Then painted her using acrylic paint, Caran d'Ache Neocolor II crayons, Inktense pencils, and Sakura Gelly Roll pens in white & Green Star (LOVE!).
She's a cutie! :)
Here she is Instagram style. Come join me @sadieinspired!!XO,

Summer of Color 2 - Mint Chip
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I had a chance to finish a journal portrait for The Summer of Color 2. The ice cream inspiration was mint chocolate chip. YUM!! I thought I would be using my larger journal for the challenge...but, why limit myself right?? I just keep grabbing for my little 5 x 8 journal. I am only doing little whimsy girls in it, so it seems pretty logical for this one. ;)
Well, and of course I use any excuse I can find to get new paint. So I headed over to Michaels to see what I could find. The fabulous hostess Kristin had suggested the Martha Stewart line of craft paints to me awhile back and ever since - new obsession. (I keep telling the Hubs...my obsessions could be worse. I mean, the MS paint only costs $1.99 a bottle. I could easily be addicted to collecting shoes. He prefers the paint. LOL) I found a paint called Mint Chip in a pearly finish. Swoon! It is super pretty.
