Like A Zombie

I also found time to create a page that freaked a few people out here in the family. I wanted to do something different and inspire me to keep going. Sometimes I feel like a right zombie in life and after finding the "The Walking Dead" app on Facebook, I knew I had to have a few of those pictures printed. It isnt for everyone's liking but those who known me during me most difficult times, know where it comes from.

I've used the Chillingsworth paperline by Echo Park, added Tattered Angels Glimmer Glaze to create blood drippings, various mulberry flowers, DoCrafts Chronology gears, Prima crystals, black feathers and DMC yarn. I hope you will like this freaky lay out.

Magnolia Tilda With Key Card

After a busy time exploring the Caran d'Ache crayons and also the Pablo pencils, I know for sure this is me favorite brand to use for colouring. They have me convinced! I have tried the Pablo pencils out on one of me favorite Tilda stamps. Tilda With Key. I wanted a vintage colouring to match the Prima Engraver and Authentique papers so I decided to colour her mostly with brown n beige tones as this set of pencils has a wide variety of those. This is the first time colouring and I am amazed by how softly they colour and need no pressuring to get the pigment onto the paper. Blending the colours with odorless spiritus is also very easily done. The pencils hold so much pigment, you really only need a tiny bit coloured.

Using the Prima Engraver papers was a challange. I'm all for using browns n blacks but I have never done this for a Magnolia card. I did however add paper from an Authentique paperline to make it toned down. it was getting too dark otherwise. Mixing these papers was no problem as they have the same feel to it and also the same style.

Here is how it turned out:
