CAS[E] this Sketch #193

I might have found my 'new' rhythm =]  Oh, it hasn't changed much, but with all new surroundings, lighting, and location of my craft space, there were some adjustments.

Here is something that hasn't changed:  Leigh Penner's sketch-ability!  See what I mean:


Incredibly simple ... simply incredible!  Here is where my creative heart took me ... because I'm still dreaming of those purple Peonies:

Mondo Peonies:  Ellen Hutson  MFT Thanks dies

Two days (and nights) without a pc, and it was HELL! I feel so badly that I've missed your last few posts...yikes, you've been on a roll, my friend!
Your peonies are gorgeous, and your watercolored background is the perfect way to showcase them, Michele! I love how you added greenery, and your sentiment is stunning...a really lovely take on Leigh's sketch! You certainly inspired me to play along :)

Wowza! Purple peonies are now my favorite thing! Seriously this is amazing. Your watercoloring is spot on and the tiny bit of green from the leaves breaks up the vertical layer perfectly!n Looks like you've found your zen in your new crafting space!

What a stunner, Michele (seems to be a word I use a lot here!) ... your watercolouring is gorgeous ... perfect touch of green in the leaves ... love the white sentiment against it all! You've been creating such gorgeousness recently (I've enjoyed browsing and catching up!) ... so even though you're still in the throes of post move unpacking, it's not impacted your amazing creativity! Thank you, mon amie, for the inspiration! Hugs, Anita :)
