It's Still Monday!

DSCF3604

I actually did a Mojo sketch on a Monday--I know it's late, but it is still Monday!!!  Here's today's sketch:

and I decided to play with a neglected MFT set, Can Ya Dig It?, and do some paper piecing.

My image was a little bigger than what I planned for, but I went forward with it anyway--after putting all the work into it, I wasn't going to stop!  I used various DPs from K&Company and Basic Grey for my piecing and backgrounds, and filled in the grass & sky with some watercoloring.  A little departure from my normal style, but it was nice to do something different!  Enjoy.

  • Stamps:  Can Ya Dig It?, MFT
  • Paper:  Sahara Sand, Confetti White, Mellow Moss, various DPs from BG & K&Co
  • Ink:  Palette Noir, Mellow Moss, Cameo Coral, Ruby Red, Brocade Blue, Always Artichoke
  • Acc: Nesties, Dew Drops, Organdy Ribbon, Markers, Daubers, Aquapainter, Dimensionals
