    Oh Wow Karen. This is so beautiful – it almost brings a tear to my eye. (feeling a touch sentimental tonight). Just so gorgeous.

  • Thank you so much Sharona – Sometimes it is nice to have a sentimental moment, but I hope it is not a sad sentimental – if so, may you feel on top of the world real soon xx

    Way too cute…..great treatment, sounds difficult to do though…:-)

  • Thank you so much Trudy – it’s really not hard at all, it’s just taken me a bit of time (and money) to work out which mediums work best on the film – it is such a dream to work with!!

    Brilliant work once again Karen. I particularly love the background colours!

  • Thank you so much Simon, the background was my focus in this piece – have spent the last couple of days redoing this one several times. Finally settled on Faber Castell Pitt pens blended on the back and was quite happy with the results.
