Turns out Dot wasn't Distressed after all. . ,



Well , it's the last spread of the Color Chronicles Round Robin for me , and this one was for Christine. The theme she chose was 'distressed polka-dots'. Although I really struggled with the concept , once I actually got started it came together very quickly. I'm really loving working faster - I have finally learned it does me no good to plan these things in advance. I've wasted a lot of time 'thinking' , and I can't remember now if I have Ever actually followed one (the plan). If anything , I confused myself trying to put together too many ideas into one piece lol. Anyway , this was fun to do in the end , and I really hope she enjoys it.

Incredibly beautiful, and I´m sure that the layers look even better in the real book.

Your artwork is beautiful. Love the Dots, angels, and fairy shoes. Really like the colors you chose for Dot. I can relate to the overthinking it thing.....

Oh WOW those are stunning. I like the polka dots. Thanks for the high quality pictures... I never get to see this stuff in real life and these sorts of pics really help me "feel" it, if that makes sense.

I too have a hard time planning things. They -never- work out... that curse applies to everything in my life. So I just go with the flow. I never know what I'm doing when I start creating, but it finds its own way home.

Hi Kim, this is just beautiful! I love the layers you have, I need to learn how to do that! Thank you so much for your sweet words about my new art, I so appreciate them. Sometimes you wonder if others like it like you do! You're right about winging it, I think it's fun to just start digging in your supplies and throw things in a pile that look good together. xxoo, Dawn
