Green Heart

I am sorry, but I just LOVE this colour combination, so I use these shades quite frequently...I hope you don't get tired of it! Once again, I shaded the leaves with pencil crayons on top of the marker.

For the Illustration Friday challenge for this week. I thought that the shading from the coloured pencils worked wonderfully to create the textures of different fabric.

ATC Bag

Our local Second Cup coffee shop was selling these little knit bags to hold their Christmas Gift Cards. My friend Dawn and I thought that they would be great for holding our ATC's for our monthly trades. We issued a challenge to one another to see who would decorate theirs first - eat your heart out, Dawn!

I have started out the New Year the right way, completing some art challenges - I love doing these! This one was for the Blissful Art Journaling group - the theme was water. It was fun working with all the shades of blue...
