Hey Mr Snowman...

Lend me your ear, there's things I need to talk about I want you to hear...


 Go one, tell me you're not going to be singing that marvellous Kim Wilde song all day now! So, talking of things you need to hear, new Challenge at Make it Clean and Simple... Shades of Black and White. You were scared there for a minute weren't you? You thought it was That Thing On 25 December We Don't Mention. So, you'll be wondering what on earth is going on here, knowing, as you do, my absolute, complete, and utter joy at all things to do with That Thing on 25 December We Don't Mention, on any day other than 25 December. Fear not. This is not a That Thing On 25 December We Don't Mention Card. It's the last page in my ATC Journal, and I thought the colour scheme would make for a striking That Thing On 25 December We Don't Mention Page. So, move along please. No That Thing On 25 December We Don't Mention Cards to see here...

Light Shades; C0, C1, C3, Mid Shades; C3, C5, C7, Dark shades; C5, C7, C9, 100

Ooooh, this is gorgeous Fluff, brilliantly coloured and I love the black and white theme, it looks amazing!

PS: It can't be anything to do with the 25th coz it doesn't have any green, red and gold on it!!!

*runs in and screams "Chriiiiiiiiiiiiiissssssssssssssstmaaaaaaaaaaaas", pauses in front of ATC page for a moment because it's so fabulous and then hightails it outta there before Faye can whip a shoe in the direction of intruder*

Absolutely fabulous coloring! What a striking image. :)

Linda said...

Ha...hahahahah....hahahaha..hehehe..hahahahahahaha! .......nope, still chuckling away here.

Well, what can I say? Fabulous ATC page and a bit more cheerful than my recent shades of B & W number. Love the way you've adding shading to the white, I sometimes struggle a bit (a lot?) with that.

You know.....I'm thinking I may have to send you a That Thing on 25th December We Don't mention on any Day other than 25th December card, just to freak you out:P I'm also abbreviating it to TTWDM, because it's waaaaay too long to type and I may just be tempted to type CHRISTMAS!!! :) xx

Brilliant card and fabulous colouring x

Annette said...

I've never tried the black and white colouring (I have enough trouble when I have colour to help me with the shading without any further trouble!) It's stunning Faye. Really amazing, and your colouring is so inspiring. I wish I could attend one of your classes. I had an email from Sue saying she'd had a new lease of life with her markers since she came to your class.
Have a great Sunday.
Hugs
Annette

I know you're not a fan of Christmas cards or projects. So congratulations on being able to make this as unChristmasy as you can get it, keeping to grey shades. And I must say I love how it looks in this color scheme. Well done!

Sue said...

Faye, this is fabulous...truly inspirational monochromatic colouring - just gorgeous... Very original too for a thing we are n't supposed to mention creation!

I'm so glad you managed to get through that blog post without mentioning That Thing On 25 December We Don't Mention ;-)

I think we should all just focus on the absolutely adorable and superbly coloured Mr Snowman instead :-) A fabulous finish to your ATC journal!

Big hugs, Kat xx
