Stencils and Day-6 sketch

 This week's Challenge at Documented Life Project was my favorite. Stencils and stamps are always so special to me.
 The lovely face is inspired by Jane Davenport's girls from her wonderful book, 'Beautiful Faces' I ve used different kinds of stencils to add interest on her hair and body. I stenciled on the background too.
The background and hair stencil are 12/12 Balzer Designs, from the Crafter's Workshop.
 I'm so happy with how she has turned out and there will be more girls in the future from Jane's book.

Daily Sketch Day - 6

This was my first attempt at doing a bunny. I'm glad that I'm challenging myself to sketch new subjects.
