For a Special Friend

Good Morning! brrrr isn't it cold :( the only thing I'm LOVING at the moment are the trees turning, such fantastic colours! and when the light catches them - well yes I'm nattering again!

Anyway I'm here today so share a very special project with you - a friend of mine who is a fantastic artist (you can see some of her works here) and I were talking one night and I came up with the MAD idea that I would make a little book for her!

Well it took me ages to think of how or what to do in the first place - well we overcame that and then I put it to the side - and it sat there staring at me…. and I finally got to finish it!!!  I have to say that I'm so over the moon with how she turned out!

For this creation I used the beautiful Dreads from Saturated Canary.

The image was coloured with copics - now because it was so long ago I really can't remember what ones I used :( 

She kind of reminds me of Meg in more ways than one - that could be as I did try to make her look a bit like her!!  I don't know how or why but this just fell together when I purchased a paper pad from Craftwork Cards called Time Flies - this pack is simply stunning.

I'm normally one to buy a paper pad and have it sat there to stare at for at least 6 months - but for some reason I just had to break into this pack and start using it strait away! And I'm so glad I did.  To make it look softer i distressed the edges of all layers using Tim Holtz Distress Ink Tea Dye.  

I would like to enter this creation into the following challenges; 

613 Avenue - Anything Goes
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes
Crafting When we Can - Seasons (summer)
That Craft Place - Things with Wings

Well I do hope if you have a moment you will let me know what you think! Thanks so much for stopping by, I do hope to see you again soon
