who's that girl #21 - speak to me

so, for this challenge, i chose a book my daughter loved when she was a little girl... she would ask for this one over and over, then she'd "help" me read it. i miss those days.

a little. :) mostly i'm enjoying having a teenager. really!

here's how the challenge reads:

Every so often we read a book, see a painting, or hear a song that really speaks to us for some reason. For this challenge, choose a movie, book, piece of art or song that makes you feel something strong. Document something about it - either why it means something to you, how it makes you feel, or a memory associated with it.

i made the owls. cute, huh? :) happy thanksgiving, all...

november 21st sassy lil' sketch

so sorry i didn't get my layout and blog posting up on time! i've got some sort of creeping crud - coughing, sinus, fever stuff...

anyway, here's november 21'st sketch for sassy lil' sketches...

and here's what i did with it. i used mostly basic grey with a little brown core-dinations cs and generic black cs.
some of my title letters were not black, so i made 'em black with some acrylic paint.

i like the mix of texture in the title...

thanks for looking and have a happy thanksgiving!
