Then & Now - Halloween #1


This is the first post and video for my new series, Then & Now and as I love Halloween I start with that theme. The Then & Now series is to show me and you how far you can come in your colouring with a little bit of focused practising. For the first videos I'm using the Mini Monstaz by Make It Crafty, the then image is from back in 2013, before I was a member on the Make It Crafty team, I think I used my winnings from winning the Make It Colourful Challenge to buy them. The biggest different is in in the folds and in the skin, but I've improved leagues since then.

So what is focused practising? Well for me it's to take a part of an image, like folds/pleats and look at courses, youtube and photos to learn better to colour that part, and then practise, practise, practise. Colouring daily will make you better, colouring daily with focus makes that go so much faster. All my videos will have small tips and ideas all through out the series, telling you what I've learned and how I used that specific information for the card I'm making.

  1. Oh this is Fabulous looking!!!! I love it! !!!

  2. This is so cool to watch! I was in the process of creating some of these myself and I was a hard time choosing which images I was going to start with. LOL. Love all your then and now cards - each are fantastic and I agree with you that it's fun to see how we progress over time.

    So fun to watch these videos. Also, I received my package - thank you for the goodies too! I'm going to have fun them. :D
