    I would have suggested since you have the dress in the second accent line to color the one you bleached so it looks like a planned pattern. After all it is art.

    It looks gorgeous and you eyes look wonderful

In it, the project is stitching the "Girl with the Pearl Earring" (see initial post here - Latest Projects). As you can see, the eyes didn't turn out too well. So, I started all over. Eyes are MUCH better, but somehow I managed to spread color across the effect lines, or what-ever they're called. So I tried the Tide stick, got some of it out. And in one of my brighter moments (NOT!), I decided that Clorox on a Q-tip would work. Well, it also bleached the fabric. So I may end up coloring the accent lines, but thought that I would go ahead and post it while I'm waiting for the Clorox to dry. Ha!

    Anyway...
    I bought that class also. I think the instructor is awesome and so nice. I haven't started a picture yet, just a bit too busy right now, but I did buy my Prisma colored pencils on Amazon, what a bargin, such low prices compared to anywhere else. Your picture is lovely, and always remember what the instructor told you, that there are no mistakes.

    She looks great. I plan to take some Craftsy classes in the fall when my grandchildren are back in school and I won't be watching them all day.
