A Day for Daisies

It was quite a while ago that I did a bit of shopping in the A Day for Daisies store. Broni had used this image and the second I saw it, I *really* wanted it.

This image is Braid in My Hair.    Just gorgeous.

I colored her with Copics then paired her with my (current) favorite collection from My Mind’s Eye, “The Sweetest Thing” Bluebell.

Love, love, love this image. 🙂

While coloring the hair I was reminded of a project from one of my first art classes.  We were to draw anything but the task was to incorporate the entire alphabet.  Here’s what I came up with.  (If you click on the image, you can see it in a larger format.)

Can you find the letters?  (They’re in order.)

I received an A but argued just a bit because I thought I should have earned an A+.  (I know…)  My grade was reduced because I “didn’t use color.”   (As I recall, that was not part of the requirement.) Ok. *sigh*  🙂

I’ll be back soon with MFT October previews!  Thanks so much for visiting today!  🙂
