Penguins and Roasted Marshmallows

Aloha! I love penguins! They usually mate for life and have the fluffiest little cute babies ever! And they waddle. What's not to love?

When I have insomnia, I love to watch coloring videos on YouTube. They are soothing and I learn lots of "stuff." One of my favorites is Sandy Allnock! Be sure you watch some of her skills with coloring tools like Copics, watercolors and color pencils. Here is a link to her spectacular BLOG. I hope you'll check out her amazing talents!

I've been striking out on my own, figuring out how to create scenes with little images I have. It is SCARY. The process puts fear into me. But when done, (keep going because there's usually a period of a hot mess to work through) sometimes I end up with a scene that makes me smile, inside and out. It's a challenge though. I hope you give this a try! I just grab a light marker and start sketching. I masked the fire and hats, then created the bowl of marshmallows because one on a stick just isn't plausible, right? Then I dragged some markers around to create the northern (I guess southern if it's penguins) lights, covered it with Wink of Stella, Crystal Lacquer and created a starry sky. Penguin love ♥
