Sketchabilities #142: You guys make me so happy!



Nothing beats having a scrap of your favourite family portrait!

Am featuring my current favourite from Chinese New Year this year. (We take one every Chinese New Year at home with the camera on timer from the top of the tv set. haha. Its one of those occasions where we’re all sorta dressed to the nines…) Here’s this fortnight’s Sketchabilities sketch. I’ve did a mirror image of this scrap instead of the regular one shown here.


Decided to try something different with a Dear Lizzy stencil my friend lent to me and decided to do some water colouring with it using 3 distress inks – Victorian Velvet, Tea Dye and Spiced Marmalade. I loved how Spiced Marmalade turned shades of orange and yellow upon its combination with water and how Tea Dye and Victorian Velvet muted the portions of the colours. :)
