Dexter Gives

I can't say that I'm ready for Christmas but every once in a while it's fun to color something out of the season.  This one was just perfect for the day and it allowed me to play with some other colors that I normally wouldn't pick.  I've used Dexter Gives and the full recipe is below.  For some more inspiration today, check out what the Little Misses have created.  Enjoy!

Broasca Frog

I'm back in town for the summer and what a whirlwind - I loved it!  I was even lucky enough to skip out on some of the hottest days in Texas while I was enjoying the more cooler weather up north.  Bliss! 

As a welcome back into the internet, I thought I'd get right into posting a project I created.  This one uses Broasca Frog and I had fun coloring him with vibrant greens and blue eyes.  I kept the project simple and focused on the techniques of coloring and mixing colors.  I like how he turned out and I even have the color combos to share, which are listed below in the recipe.
