Let it snow!

    We may get some snow tonight.  Oh I hope so.  I know I will be tired of it in a few days or even hours, but it is winter and we should get at least one, don't you think?  I envy those places that have a bounty of the white stuff!
     I am loving these inchie challenges this year (well, I have every year, haven't I?).  The idea of a different country every week is cool.  This week was France.  Some of my ancestry is French.   I am learning - very slowly - to speak some French.  So this was a great week.  I chose the Eiffel Tower, some lavender and the flag. 
     For Joey's challenge we had to use string #237 and the tangle didada.   I happened to have my new set of fineliners out so I decided on a cold color - blue!  I am okay with how this turned out.  Wish it had been a bit better, but . . .
     If you are interested in free coloring pages, go to www.colorit.com/prayer and check out the free 10 pages they are sending.  This one is from that set.  My Grandma had some bluish glass jars and I tried to get that same look.  I used Derwent Inktense pencils and a marker for the words.
    I am still trying to "conquer" grayscale coloring.  I want mine to look like those I have seen that look like a photo.  This one is better than the other one I did, but still not as vibrant and sharp as some I look at.  I will get there - I hope.
    Now I am off to finish up another coloring page and do another grayscale tutorial. And to repeatedly look out the window!  Would it help if I broke into a Frozen chorus of "Do You Want to Build a Snowman"?  No, probably not.  I do not have any musical bones in my body!  Why hurt anyone's ears?
     Thanks for dropping by and I hope you are having a very blessed day!  Hugs!


  1. Très beaux! I've never seen lavender bloom in France, I was always too late or too early :-)

  2. Lovely work. I like how the Joey tile looks like it has ice forming on it.

  3. I love all of your artwork. It looks awesome

  4. Oh I think I have the same set of fineliners, I love all the shades of blues, perfect for winter! I realized after that I should have used Didada long ways like you did!

  5. Lovely inchie, so much detail. How is your dog? Dx


Thank you for leaving me some sunshine! Your comments make my day!
