Miss Anya Dressy

Welcome to another day at Club Anya and Friends and today we have a perfect sketch to use for our Saturday Sketch challenge! I colored up another Miss Anya Dressy and cut her out to sit on a Park Bench for Two from Make it Crafty.

Because I wanted Miss Anya to stand out, I used neutral colors on the card and a simple layout with minimal embellishments. The Park Bench for Two was colored with earth tones which the mind usually reads as neutral colors.

Did you know? Lad: A Dog is a 1919 American novel written by Albert Payson Terhune and composed of twelve short stories first published in magazines. The novel is loosely based on the author's real-life collie, Lad. Born in 1902, the real-life Lad was an unregistered collie of unknown lineage originally owned by Terhune's father. Lad's death at the age of 18 was mourned by many of the story's fans, particularly children. Through the stories of Lad's adventures, Terhune expresses his views on parenting, obtaining perfect obedience without force, and the nature and rights of the "well-bred".
