My Little Protege

Morning folks, what a dreich day again - not as bad as yesterday, it was a real pea-souper, I could barely see the car in front of me on the dual carriageway. Although I have to say there was an alarming number of numpties who didn't have their headlights on, never mind their foglights - but then I truly believe that about half the folk on the road nowadays got their driving licence in a lucky bag!
Haha listen to me, ranting again.
Today I wanted to share something with you. As some of you know, Willow collects promarkers - she is almost as precious about them as I am lol She loves to colour in - I'm forever having to print off pages of digi stamps for her, we're almost through a box of 160gsm Diamond White from The Papeterie in  a few weeks. Incidentally, if you fancy trying out some Diamond White then pop over to The Papeterie's FB page, like them and leave a message asking for a sample pack - Charlotte is giving away sample packs and postage vouchers.
Anyway, I ordered a few new digis from Saturated Canary at the weekend and Willow immediately asked me to print out Double Take for her and this is how she coloured her...
Now what impressed me most about her colouring was the subtle colouring of her cheeks which she had blended in beautifully and the way she's coloured her eyes and lips. She even had a bit of Ivory to shade the folds in the dress, but the scanner hasn't picked that up. 
It looks like I'll have to keep an eye on her - she's already said she wants to be just like me when she grows up and be a craft demonstrator. Might happen sooner than I thought though :) In case you don't know, Willow is my middle child and she is 7.


Thanks for visiting, 
I appreciate any comments
