One of the very first items I bought from Hobbycraft when it first arrived in Sheffield was a "Build your own clock" kit. It had 4 face panels representing the different seasons, and you had to colour the images yourself. I was very "colour-shy" when I started crafting, and so used muted watercolours to decorate my clock, but....I has changed...I likes stronger, deeper colours these days, so it was time to revamp. And this is how it looks now, much richer, warm and welcoming.
I decided to try using promarkers over the watercolours...
and I think you'll agree the colours are much stronger and smoother.
You should now be seeing side by side comparison pics...but blogger keeps rearranging them :S
And all 4 panels together...
Now I just need to make/acquire a nicer frame :D
