Spring is in the air....

Well, not in Australia but I'm sure it must be somewhere in the world lol

Hello's challenge time again at The Squirrel & The Fox. Our theme this week is Autumn or Spring. I know it's autumn here in Aus but I've decided to jump ahead and do a spring project. Another calendar page, so of course it had to be for September :) So far I'm doing really well with this calendar project...I have three pages done now. Hopefully I can keep this up and actually finish this one!!

This is the very cute Leisel with barrow from CC Designs. I love these cute characters and have used them quite a few times over the years. I started off with a real stamp of Leisel and one of her little friends but once they were released as digis I jumped at the chance to have them :)  I have a good collection of the Swiss Pixies and Sugarplums. They are lovely to colour.

I was very brave and broke out the Prismas to colour this. I enjoy the look of the pencils for a change from my well loved Copics. For a novice I'm pretty happy with the way this turned out. The heart and hair bobbles have been coated with SU Crystal Effects and her wing has been covered with Diamond Stickles. Leisel has been fussy cut and popped up on foam dots. The leaves and pink flower are punched pieces from my ancient stash and the white flower is one of those flat paper flowers that have been around for ever. Both flowers have a rhinestone for centres. The flowers in the centre are artificial flowers that I've also had for ages.

The calendar panel and background DP is digi from Dianne Rigdon Design. The calendar panel has been made in MMS and matted on SU Taken with Teal.

Hope you'll come and join us for this challenge.

Thanks for looking........have a wonderful day :)
