Dictionary Challenge - Letter J

Hi everyone,

Well it's been a while since I blogged - I just don't know where the time goes to!!

So I didn't get my dictionary page for G finished in time so I was determined to get J done!

It was quite a hard choice - not too many words beginning with J in my dictionary - and then I had zero J stamps so in the end I decided to draw my J entry by hand (does not happen often!) and I chose the word JELLYFISH.

So here it is:

I used paperartsy fresco finish paints for the whole project, I tried to make it look like the light was shining down into the water from the top but not sure that turned out as I had planned.  I quite like how my jellyfish turned out tho - as they do almost look translucent as you can still see the dictionary words through them.

  5. Kiwi in timbertown. Love the colours and it does look like the light is shining down into the water and catching the translucent appearance of the jelly fish.

  6. Lovely jellyfish, you really feel as if in the ocean.
