DIY challenge


The current Fat Book challenge on Craft Swap forum is "D.I.Y." set by Vanessa.
What about a bit of DIY? Do something yourself on your fat page, i.e. handwrite your own message/sentiment, do a little bit of doodling or a little drawing! It doesn't matter how little or how much!


Well, at first I was despairing because I cannot draw!However, I remembered when I was young my mum taught me how to draw a ladies face. I drew one then decided that the best thing I could do was cover it up again lol!
I cut a hat shape out of some pearlised cardstock and added some lines with a Sakura glitter pen in pink. I added a bow to the hat and positioned it so you could only see the tip of her nose and her mouth. I coloured her lips in with the pink pen and then mounted this on some lovely paper from Funky Fairy. I added two small gems for ear-rings and finally doodled around the flowers on the papers and drew a stitch line round the page with a purple Sakura glitter pen. I surprisingly am quite pleased with the end result but my was it a challenge :0)
