In Stitch magazine, they had a pattern for making little fairy shoes. So, how could I resist? I've also seen some really lovely little shoes on Val's blog as well. They are really fun to make and it makes you think about the little fairy that would occupy them. This is a winter forest fairy. It's really difficult to take a good picture of these little shoes. They are so much better in person. They are made from silk paper and embellished with beads, yarn, and stitching. These little shoes will make their way to Debbie for a swap we are both in. Wouldn't it be neat to make a whole fairy outfit?
Anyone out there have any good recipes they'd like to share on skin tones. I'm wanting to use procion dyes. I'd also really appreciate a picture of your results if you have any.
I am such a novice at photoshop but over the last few days I have been trying to learn a thing or two. These are my first attempts at changing an image into a cartoon. I know I'll get better at time. My line drawing could use a lot of work. So, please excuse the edges not being smooth on the line drawing version. This will take some work in But, I really wanted to first understand how you can do it and then practice on the techniques of coloring and line. I did my line drawing before coloring...I really should have done this after so I do have some weird lines but this is just practice.
