It's no secret I've loved Suzi Blu's stamps for a really long time so imagine my excitement when on Tuesday morning postie delivered Suzi's new book.
Whilst reading I was totally engrossed in all that Suzi says about art, I've been struggling lately with confidence issues and turned down a wonderful opportunity, I wish I had read this book a few weeks ago.
The inspiration that Suzi shares with the reader is lovely and varied and she has a gallery at the back with guest artists and there are also some templates for you to play with. Suzi shows you how to make your own masterpiece from start to finish.
Did I not mention the DVD, it's soooo cool!
Suzi explains about Prismacolor pencil lead being waxy and movable once on paper, this makes them so easy to blend, and there is even a step by step how to shade a face. Below is my first effort and I'm delighted with the results.....
This is how I used to colour in my Suzi stamps.
Here's the full finished beeswaxed piece.

Wishing you a very lovey bank holiday weekend, love Sam xxx
