Seeing Dots

It is Bellarific Friday and today's theme is Polka Dots! Now I would say that is one pretty easy challenge so I'm hoping for a big turnout on the Bella Blog today. And remember folks...if you submit a card you have a chance at some bella bucks, and if you comment, you could win again!


I decided I was gonna use dots on my papers because I really wanted to use Savvyshopabella for my image AND I wanted papers to match my new Happy Tape that I picked up on Saturday. Then when I started colouring her, I realized that one of her bags has dots! Double Dot bonus! She was stamped on Bella's bestest paper and coloured with copic markers. My hair got a little dark on me, it looks even darker in the picture, but it really isn't that dark. I added pencils for shading around the image and also for some subtle shading on bella herself, just to tone down the copics. And NO glitter! What's with that? I just couldn't figure out where to put it.

It has been a whirlwind week here for me. Bella classes on Saturday as always were a blast. I love going there, it is my happy place. I didn't have too much time to bond with sistah's Paula and Emily though because I had the hubs with me. We got a bit of shopping in on Friday and then headed down to the Danforth for some yummy greek food at Pantheon. Gosh I LOVE LOVE LOVE Toronto!!!!!!!!!!

Then I had not even come down from my Toronto high and I had another exciting event here in Chatham....our first ever copic class at Pickle! What fun! And for you locals, YES, Pickle is selling Copic markers. Our first class was copic 101 and covered basic shading techniques but next round of classes we will be quickly moving on to adding pencils to those images. Looking forward to seeing everyone out there for that! Please note, these are not 'card classes', we will not be making a card in class but will concentrate only on colouring techniques.

Finally, Emily is having a release next Friday!!! WHOOOHOOO! So our theme will be ANYTHING GOES!!!!!! Send your best work to Emily by Thursday and you'll have a chance at some Bella bucks...and trust me, they will come in handy! And stick around, cause the Babes just might have some sneek peeks for ya!

This is a masterpiece! Just look at it! Sigh... so pretty.
Wish my long hair looked so flippin cute as that, instead of a tangled mess in a pony tail.

For that matter, I wish I looked as cute in jeans and boots as this sweet bella.....

I've got to get up to em's place for your class one of these days, would love your tips and tricks!
