"Put that away this instant before you hurt yourself!"
Amusingly, hubby said "Kate, it may not exist, but you certainly make a convincing pretend bird. You're certainly getting the knack of using your pencils and pastels."
Awww, isn't he sweet?!
Finally, in case you are wondering about my experiment with using pencils on the sanded pastel paper, my recommendation would be not to try it. The paper will seriously chew through your pencils and you will really have to layer very intently to get any depth to your work. It was driving me crazy. (And I was already feeling pretty crazy when I recognised the errors of my ways.) If you are feeling rebellious like you still want to try it, don't say I didn't warn you... ;-)
Anyway, thanks so much for stopping by. I'll be sure to share my latest with you over the next couple of days.
