It's my BIL's birthday and as he is a HUGE Starwars fan, I chose this image of Jar Jar Binks which I found in a colouring page websight here. I followed the sketch at Sketch Saturday, coloured my image with Copics several times, cut bits of him out and layered him up with silicone glue. My DP is Basic Grey and I embossed the silver and black panels with a Sizzix (I think) embossing folder. The punched border is a new MS punch which I LOVE and the sentiment is by Lily of the Valley. It's a shame it isn't very visible just how dimensional this guy is. In addition to using several layers, I used my embossing tool on the cut out elements to give more depth to parts of him and in real life he is very 3D.
I definitely think I'm feeling better so I guess my meds are kicking in. I had a reasonably productive day yesterday for the first time in four weeks! Phew!!! I hope to catch up with some Christmas cards at the weekend and maybe get around to doing some blog commentary too but it's my wedding anniversary today and I need a nap just now. Hubby and I plan to decorate the tree when I wake up and then snuggle up for the evening in front of the telly. Then my Mum is coming to stay from Sunday for two weeks so I'm not sure how much time I will have for crafting.
Please forgive me if I don't make it by your blogs for a while longer! I'm sure I'll be with you before Christmas and one of my New Year's Resolutions will definitely be to be a better blogger in 2012!
