You're so sweet to say so. Thank you! :heart:
Yes, Matilda is probably my favourite book by Roald Dahl. And Matilda herself has to be my favourite fictional character; I guess even more than Hermione Granger.

Happy Halloween! :D :pumpkin: :D

I've been re-listening to an audiobook read by Myriam Morgolyes, she's fantastic! There's a version read by Kate Winslet on YouTube, that's awesome, too. :D

Another wonderful piece. Matilda is a classic. It's easy to see why she's a favourite.

Of course! :D I use a good scanner that I bought a few years ago. Here's a comparison between the older model I had, and the newer one:
Comparison between scanners by Leochi
As you can see there is quite a difference between both scanners. After scanning in my pictures I usually adjust them on Photoshop CS5 or on Photoshop Elements 11. I like watercolours to look natural, so I usually don't tweak them too much.
Hope this helped. :D

Haha, I'm sorry there's no magic trick! :shrug: Photoshop can help a little, but a bad scanner will not pick up enough detail for it to work with. Most scanners aren't built for art work because that market is just too small. People usually scan documents and sometimes photos.
