visitors here at my Magnoliablogg sence june 2009,
This is a just how I do. There is so many different ways
with small or big differences in how people colour
and never get boored, I want to share mine with you.
what kind of card I am making.
If I have a new image to colour I might just colour
it in the colours I´d like at the time.
This is the most exciting way to create I think-
I usally have an ideá about the card, something
I want to try or something I´ve seen somewhere else but
I never really know how the card will turn out in the end.

I study colours on paper and embellishments
The paper is an aquarellpaper 300 gr with smooth surface.

I have two syntethicbrushes I use, 2 and 4.
I use the bigger one to pick up distress from the
"ink refill-storage" you can se here below.
Even the bigger brush is small at the tip when it´s
wet and I also use it for colouring.
this storage. Then I take a drop of ink with my big brush
on my colouringpalette.
Now I have a little problem as I´ve got
some new colours and there is no room for them here...
So I just might have too make some changes about it later on.
Here I have mixed tattered rose + vintage photo+water
for skincolour and added it around the face.
I always start around the edges. I put clean the brush
in water to take away the colour. Then i gently toch the

I do the same thing again.

to think about, otherwise the colour will get mixed up´

and touch the brush gently on some tissue paper.
Then I softs the colour with circlemoves
from the edge of the area, leaving a brigh spot.

otherwise the whole area will get this colour.
Now you can see the shadows taking place.
For the hair I have antique linnen, walnut stain and

to get a nice contourline around Tilda.
You can use any colour but I prefer this one.
First I put the colourline around Tilda
and then I take rather a lot of
water into the big brush. I softens the
colourline all round her and it will make her

I know it´s been awfully quiet in here for some while.
In this time of year it always seems to be so much
