My Happy Accident!!!

Hello Blog friends and followers hope you are all well.  Thank you so much for my welcome back to Blogland, and for all your lovely comments.
We seem to be drifting between Summer and Spring here in the North East of Scotland. There is nothing much we can do about the weather so we just have to go with the flow as they say!!!
If you happen to have landed here because you pressed a wrong button ... welcome.  Please stay a while and have a look round, I love having visitors.
After meeting Maureen Killen a couple of years ago I have learnt so much about colouring.  Maureen makes beautiful cards, most are stamped and coloured.  I have crafted in lots of ways since a little girl "many years ago".  Like most little ones I did colour, always had colouring books and pencils. However it was never like the amazing things we have on offer today.  
I have a few Digital Images that I decided I would print off to send to Maureen to help her pass the time while she is not able to get about after her accident. The image I am showing I mistakenly printed in A4 size.  I was just going to use the back of the paper as scribble, then thought I would have a go at actually colouring it.  It is rather big and a lot to colour,  I have done it, I still have lots to learn but I am quite happy with it.
I printed the image from a My Besties CD by Sherri Baldy.
I used Prisma Pencils to colour

My friend Elaine spotted and admired it, she has three Granddaughters so I gave it her . She said she would frame it for the girls Playroom.    I would not have used it, we have no girls in the family.

Having printed it off A4 by mistake I have decided to call it "My Happy Accident"

`cepta  plus anyone else interested in making any of the Origami Boxes on the 12x12 paper packs from "The Works" is perfect for making them.
Here are pictures of 2 of the packs I have.  I have had mine for a while and actually think they now £4 put still well worth the money.

Thank you so much for calling by I really appreciate it
Till next time

  1. Fabulous image and just perfect for a little girl's room and with super colouring. So pleased to see you using your lovely pencils. Weather not so settled up here either, Kate x

  2. Morning Patricia,
    You happy accident is gorgeous, love the colouring.

  3. Your little accident turned out beautifully! Your coloring is simply divine. I don't play well with pencils or markers. I'm strickly ink and a sponge dauber or distress inks and a water brush.

  4. Wonderful colouring and great paper pads, xxx

  5. Love everything about this gorgeous card!!

  6. Hello Patricia,
    This is gorgeous and I'm sure Elaine will be asking if you've done any more for her other granddaughters!! You are kind to exaggerate my abilities, it was confidence you lacked, not ability.
    love xxx

  7. Well, that really is a happy accident Patricia!! You have done an incredible job of the colouring, the shading looks wonderful, I struggle on small images let alone an A4!! I used to love the magic painting books that you brushed with water and colour appeared...happy days!!xx

  8. Hi Patricia,

    As Sarah said I too struggle to colour small images let alone A4.
    Wonderful work.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  9. Beautiful colouring on this gorgeous image Patricia, look amazing.

  10. Love this Patricia. I bought some Sherrie Baldy digital stamps very similar. The colouring is brilliant. No wonder Elaine loved it.x

  11. Hello Patricia,
    I've said it before and I'll say it again - this is a really lovely piece of art work!
