Smoky Eyes...



I bought the Suziblu "Party Girl" art kit. Because I am trying to be brave on all levels and I have posted to you before how I am afraid of drawing. Faces especially. I thought this would help to have a beautiful little face to look at and study and paint with no pressure.

It was really awesome. The supplies that come with the kit are fantastic. I got a big bag full of papers and sparkly thingies and rub-on transfers - so much that I did the painting and now I have lots left over to do many other projects. The paints are good enough to eat. Lucious and creamy and full of color in the smallest little drop, so you can water them down for fantastic glazing. I got the paints to complete just this painting, small pots, but there was plenty there for me to play a bit with them to make sure I was comfortable with how they worked, and still get the painting done.


I'm in love, love, love with the paints though. I will have to peek at what's available on the Artcellar list. Yummy. I can see why Suzi is always saying - "I love these".

Suzi's directions are step-by-step, with photos, so you can see what she means - but there is plenty of room for you to introduce your own creative style, once your comfortable with how the products works.
I wish you could see the cool sparkles in the swirls. Sometimes the photographs don't catch everything. You can see them on the left, but not as well on the right. I laid a stencil over the painting and used the awesome sparkly paint included in the kit. It is a little raised up so added some nice texture.
Thank you Suzi! I had a blast. She is so pretty. I must go buy a frame and put her in my art room to remind me that faces are not so scary after all.

I've seen Suzi's kits and thought about getting one. Now I must! Your results are so Suzi. I'm a bit timid about my drawing skills and I think I need some Suzi love. Thanks for being brave and paving the way.

After seeing this, I ended up signing up for Suzi's class. Now I think I may have a chance at making some pretty, pretty girls of my own! Thanks for the inspiration.
