1st attempt!

Hidy hi all,

I'm sat in the hairdressers having my routes done and posting from my iPhone.

I finally got round to playing with the prisma pencils I got from my sweet hubby for my birthday.

I visited krista smiths etsy shop and came back with several of her delish images.

This one reminded me of me in my "hippie" phase all those years ago.

So I need honest opinions on my colouring please ladies, you won't believe how long this took me, I'm still not happy with it, the dreadlocks were so difficult to do!

Maybe I should try a more simple image next time.

Yes I definately need more practice but more importantly I had such a fun relaxing time doing it.

That's it for today, maybe I'll get a card made over the weekend.

Hugs xx cara xx
