Sweet like Sugar Skulls.

Hello everyone :-)

I have been away far too long (I know I've said that before!), I am now playing catch up and its no fun :-P Its been a long hard slog in my "real" job for the last couple of weeks but I thunk things are settling down a bit now!! I've not been able to keep up with any of the drawing I started from Cameron's Blog :-( I do hope I can catch up a little bit!! The lesson's are such fun, I just need to set aside some time to really give them a go!!

I did manage to get some drawing done though, ok that's not strictly true! I drew the picture ages a go but I decided to take the plunge and colour it in!!

I have to say I'm quite pleased with this so far!  I love Sugar Skulls, I really find the colours and styles so interesting!! I'm hoping to draw more, maybe themed ones! If anyone has any ideas on themes i could do please let me know!!

It kind of looks like he has a moustache, maybe I'm subconsciously channelling Poirot here haha!! I think i need to take a step back and come back to it later and see if it needs any tweaking! Bit as the first thing I've drawn AND coloured myself in a long time I think it's gone quite well!!

That's it on the art front at the moment though :-( I must do better!!

And this photo is just because I love the necklace I'm wearing in it :-P Oh and the top!! Both were bargains! The necklace is from and the top was in the Henry Holland sale! I literally LOVE Henry Holland clothes :-D

Hope you all have a lovely week!!

About meeeeeeee!

My friend Carmen from Crafty whoopidooings was tagged in a MEME thingy a while a go and invited her followers to answer the questions so i thought why not!! So here we go........

 1.If you could describe your life in colour, what would it be and why?Red......I love the colour red! It makes me happy and is nice and warm. I like to think that my personality suits the colour red :-)

2. Do you have any pets? If so, what are they/their names and why do they fit your personality?I have a black cat named Lupin after Professor Lupin in Harry Potter......and no I'm not a Harry Potter fan AT ALL but professor Lupin was my fave character!! She is slightly OCD (actually ocd...she grooms too much and gives herself bald patches!!), but the friendliest cat you will ever meet!!

3. Where did you fit in in high school...jock, band geek, popular crowd...etc?
I was shy and quiet and hated being he centre of attention.  I made it my mission in life not to draw attention to myself.  I spent quite a lot of time on my own, no one wanted to sit next to me unless they wanted to copy my work! I was pushed over, had things thrown at me, drawn on.....I could go on! I am not one of those people who would go back and live there high school lives again......i was happy to be gone and still am :-P

4.How do you react in an emergency...fight or flight, go get help, the calm one???
I don't think I've ever been in a proper emergency but I'd like to think I would do my best to help!! In my head id be panicking like mad but sometimes you just have to do something you don't want to!!

5. If they were making a movie of your life, who would you chose to play you... why?
I literally have no idea at all......maybe you should ask my friends and family?? ;-P

6. Why is your best friend your best friend, what makes them so special?
My best friends are my best friends because they like me for who I am :-P I don't have to pretend with them!

7. If money was no object, and you were going to buy yourself something completely frivolous, what would it be, and why?
Oh don't ask me that, I am a total shopaholic!! I have a list as long as my arm of things I would like to buy!! haha!!

7. Three words that describe your personality?
shy, fun, creative

8. Who was your favourite teacher and how did they influence you?
I didn't really have any teachers that influenced me! I had teachers that I liked but they were just nice and kind to me! I did have an art teacher who was fresh out of uni and she was so cool! She made me see that art didn't mean I had to draw like the masters.....sadly I'd already applied to uni to do Psychology!!

9. What do you consider true strength?
To carry on through the tough times in life even though you just want to curl up and cry!

10. What is your favourite game? (video, board, card...any kind)
My fave board game is Disney Trivia because I nearly always win! My fave computer game is too hard! I love the Sims, but I also love Final Fantasy, Mass effect, Dragon age, Disgea.  My all time fave computer game is probably Fallout 3!

11.What season do you love the most, why?
Spring or autumn, when its warm and sunny but not so hot that my skin frazzles and I feel like I'm melting haha!!

So there you go! Feel free to answer the questions yourself :-)
