This week has been a bit crazy...the weather here in Montreal has been all over the place...Tuesday we had this crazy storm, poured buckets! And because of the sudden downpour the drains couldn't keep up or something and we had geysers coming from every drain in the house, including the toilet! It was quite the experience...I'm glad my husband was home because I would have flipped! I thought the whole apartment was going to be flooded!
Then the sun came out and it all went away...humid yesterday and rain again today...so weird...it rains while the sun is out. I guess I got so used to Seattle where the sun was never out this time of year, especially when it rained :)
But that hasn't kept me from my work! I've been busy finishing up the final details of the wedding invitation I'm working on. Hopefully will get the proof out in the mail tomorrow for approval!!! I'm so excited! Yes, it will be a very large project...but hey...I love what I do :)
So, today's card is another Saturated Canary lovely!
Orchard Love from Saturated Canary. She is so adorable! I love picking apples. We try to do that every year. It was so much cheaper in WA to go out to the orchards and pick the apples ourselves, and we had fun doing it! It's still fun here...but not cheaper :(
I colored her in with my colored pencils. I'm not too fond of how her outfit turned out...I didn't think through that color job very well...but the rest of her I love! I've really been working on skin and hair coloring. I need a lot more practice with skin...just can't seem to get that to look right...but hair! I think I'm getting pretty darn good at :) At least as good as I can get using plain colored pencils :)
The last element I added on the front was a bead charm! I wanted to try something different from a normal pin, and since I have a lot of my bead stuff now, I decided on a "charm" style decoration.
