Fall-ing for this squirrel


At Craft Your Passion the challenges are Always Anything Goes!We have the fabulous A Day For Daisies as our sponsor too.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job.

Fall Floral by A Day For Daisies is just soooo adorable!I thought I’d grab the chance to practise rendering fur with coloured pencils.Always something I need to improve on!Was quite pleased when I’d finished but now honing in on my mistakes!!The colours on the flowers have been achieved by pencil blending alone.The grass and pale blue ‘halo’ sky effect have been softened with blending solution and a paper stump.Chose these fabulous Teresa Collins papers to go with this cutie pie.The placement of the sentiment is all part of the design and not to cover a smudge some mucky pup got on the image 😉 LOL.All finished with some natural raffia and a wooden button threaded with paper twine for an organic feel.
