Our first newbie for the month.........

Lena Schreijenberg - Pets

Hi Shazza,
It's me again...
Thanks to Peggy I also found this fantastic challenge blog too!!
I just LOVE this one, so cool to get inspired by all these awesome artworks!!!
I started with a picture of my son Liam with one of our cats, named Harley.
In the end I wasn't totally satisfied with the result... Then I got the idea to use my pastel pencils on the area’s I didn’t like (on the left side and top corner on the right). Just a little touch here and there but a great improvement on this LO.
Hope you will like it!!
Love, Lena

Hi Lena! I love your mixed media approach to this entry, I love the way you use different mediums to reach your desired affect like doodling, stamping, painting and even pastels :)
Boy!! I think your tropical flower is bigger than the one I used :) lol
Great photo of Liam and one of your cats. A very inspirational piece. Great work, I love it!
- Cheers Shazza
