Aud Sentiments Challenge 237

Hi crafty people!  It’s been over three weeks since I was sitting here writing a blog post although there have been a few posts scheduled over that time.  We were away in South Africa visiting my husband’s family and we had a great trip.  From seeing the big 5 in the Kruger National Park, to driving through the Karoo region and Outaniqua mountains, swimming in the Indian ocean and enjoying a (few) braai.  Before I get onto my crafty project I thought I would share a handful of pics from our adventures.

Now we are home again which is lovely and autumn arrived before us.  I love October and today’s post is one of the reasons I enjoy this month….. Halloween!  Today is the start of a new challenge at the Aud Sentiments Challenge Blog and this month we are sponsored by Oddball Art.  The theme of the challenge is Halloween and/or autumn and the only real rule is to add a sentiment!

I was very lucky to be gifted the 4 Whimsical Witches Hats Image 479 digital stamp and this is what I created….

While we were away on holiday I did a little crafty shopping and I treated myself to a small selection of Polychromos pencils by Faber Castell.  I used these to colour one of the hats.  I think I’m going to enjoy playing with these pencils and using them on different coloured backgrounds and pairing with alcohol pens etc.  Do you have any tips or tricks for using these pencils?

The challenge closes on the 14th of October so there is plenty of time to enter your Halloween or autumn themed projects!  Good luck everyone!

How have you all been?  I need to sit down with a cuppa and respond to some lovely comments and catch up on blogs I’ve missed while we were away.

  1. Welcome home and with pretty pictures and crafty goodies – how wonderful. I was going to buy the polychromos pencils but in the end opted for the one below that (sorry cant remember what they are called at the moment. After reading the Faber sight on hints and tips for the different pencils they said something to the effect of they are more for artists who are used to working with oils. As they are oil based I assume they will be excellent for blending but might need a fair bit of practice with them Jenny. I am sure there are people out there who will be able to help and advise you how to get the best out of them. Have fun.
