A lot of artists are using water soluble wax crayon for their background (I know, it doesn't sound right, but had to try them out :D)
Found these at the Range, pack of lead colour blocks £2.99(the stuff in the middle of pencil crayons)...
and a pack of 12 water soluble wax crayon by Reeves for just £5!!! The only ones I had found up to now where £10(much larger range colours wise, but a bit pricey for a trial)
At The Butterfly Effect this week they have the theme "Art and Music". While waiting for paper to dry, I started making a "Desk Faerie/Angel" again inspired by seeing one on Donna's desk. She is quite PINK! so I named her Flamingo, which reminded me of the song by Manfred Man called "Pretty Flamingo", which inspired me to use my Martha Stewart Craft acrylic paints, the palest of which is called "Pretty Flamingo" :D How tenuous a link do you want haha! :D
So here is my "pretty flamingo" :D
And here she is with Flamingo the Flamenco Faerie :D
