Totally out of my comfort ZONE!

Hola, I got TOTALLY OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE!!! If you haven't heard about it... The Greeting Farm decided to have a 23 weeks heart journaling class. How cool is that? So, week 1, the theme is WINGS!

Viola! Here is what I made... I never did anything like this before... but it's super cool.

Here is the close up -

I used watercolor pencil and Faber-Castell gelato for the background, flowers, and clouds. The flowers is a stamp set from Close to my Heart called Simple Blossom. I even cut out the fence with Cricut cartridge called Wall Decor and more, then painted with picket fence crackle paint and distressed with tea dye ink. The sentiment is from Tim Holtz Visual Artistry collection Curious Possibility. Flutter Anya was colored with Faber-Castell artist pens. And finally we need some glitter, right?!

Hope you like it and have a great sunday!

Hugs to all of you.Smiley from

And Elizabeth, you are so sweet, kind, and a great friend! As I always say, YOU ROCK! Smiley from millan.netThanks so much for the wonderful opportunity and share with us the Softpencil family. As a thank you, the DT and I decided to do a THANK YOU blog hop, just for you!
