These little critters I had actually drawn a long time ago for a class that I taught in drawing. I was teaching how a simple body could be used to create all sorts of different animals and they got to choose how to decorate the critter. After building the critter I taught them a little about shading. It was a fun class.
Then the ribbon rose was something I found in the store - I was so excited I finally found some, except I didnt' anticipate they would be too big to use on most of my projects. So it was neat they fit and the color scheme worked out ok too. And lastly it always feels good to move out the older paper.
I'd like to enter these into the following challenges:
