SEFARINA - Fairy page...

Very emotional week on the news.. in the media.. and with dear friends and family.. While I wish a simple hug could cure what ails each and everyone that's hurting right now.. I know it's not enough. :( 

My friends, please know you are in my thoughts constantly.  My personal fairies are working overtime to find ways to reach each of you.. and let you know. you are not alone.. you are loved... and my silence.. is only my way.. of listening.. to see what you REALLY need during this time... 

Ok.. On to my post.. which is dedicated to you..

 I saw a series of great techniques on how to use gelatos with Amber Button and I tried some, when I used my gelatos today.. so if you are afraid of gelatos.. or have some and have never used them please check her out here, she's great!  I am in a facebook group where he post blog was posted.. great group of ladies.. you can find them here.  The admins are Tara McGuire and Angela Blake.. both very talented!

Well here she is..

I  created a background by using a coldpress notebook page by Cottonwood Arts and wet it with water with my Ranger misters.  I then took my gelato, wet the tip in my water bowl and proceeded to slather colors- creating my base, for my background, directly from the stick. Then I took my finger and wet it with water.. and rubbed the color across the page.  I let it dry (while getting a cup of coffee.. lol)  I came back drew with my mechanical pencil from my Pigma Sensei set.. love that pencil and eraser.. had no problems erasing on top of the gelatos. 

After it was dry.. I took my sensei pens, which are waterproof and traced over my pencil lines and erased. Then I took my water brush and pulled pigment/color directly from tube and painted my images.  I still went back with my white Sharpie (water-based) paint pen, Moonlight gelly roll pens, and Faber Castell Big Brush Pitt Pen which I use to add dept by smudging and adding a lil' accents here and there. Oh and don't let me forget her *shimma*.  I am a *control* shimma freak!  So I use a Wink of Stella brush pen in *clear* to add shimmer to my fairy!

Last thing were my quotes.. with Brave Wings, She flies...  U R NOT ALONE... for me.. that means KEEP GOING.. just when you think you can't.. YOU CAN..   your wings will carry you as long as your willing to fly.. u r not alone.. simply means what it says.. you do have people who care and of course.. whatever higher power you believe in.  :) ((hugs))

Here are a few other pictures...
