I have stayed in my studio for two afternoons now and I told myself that today I was not going to leave until my project was complete. Well…I have finished it!
I would like to introduce you to “Shantay,” one of my favorites from Rick St. Dennis MFA line of “Randi Dandi” images. Isn’t she a beauty? I am rather partial to Rick’s Randi Dandi series. I love the big eyes and all that gorgeous hair on most of them. Randi Dandi’s are perfect for coloring.
For this art card I got to practice one of my New Year’s resolutions. That resolution is to use the designer paper pads that I have in stock before I purchase any others. Do you think that I will be able to keep it? You can bet your sweet booties that is a NOT! There are too many online enablers for me to resist that kind of temptation.
For “Shantay” I decided to color first and then look for the paper I wanted to use. The pad I found is one of the most beautiful that I have. I also forgot I had it. Now if I can use this rule every time I might make it. Another NOT! Like I tell my husband, after I die, you can sell my art supplies and retire. ;o) On to the nitty gritty…
