Fascinated with Fascinators

Hi Everyone,  Michelle here from http://ladyofleisureink.blogspot.com/.  Thanks Pam for having me over to play.

I was playing about with this gorgeous image from Saturated Canary the other day purely and simply because I wanted to make a 'fascinator' for her to wear.  You could say I've been fascinated with fascinators since last years Royal Wedding. Take a look at some of the lovely fascinators worn by Kate Middleton here.

So armed with these images, my ProMarkers and a little (well, tiny really) piece of tulle I set about creating.  Here is what I came up with.

My first image I really only coloured the skin, then then put a little pink on the dress and some grey shadowing.

I literally just scrunched up the tulle and stuck it in place with a glue dot and added a few beads.  Here is a close-up.

Then I thought it would be fun to play with a little piece of black tulle and mix things up.

The dress is coloured with the darkest greys and highlighted with a blender pen (here I change to a Copic blender as I prefer this to the ProMarker blender.)  And a close-up of her 'fascinator'.

I love the way both these images turned out, when you look at the side by side they almost don't look like the same image do they?

Thanks for joining me today - hope to see you next time.
