Etsy Inspired #112--10.30.10

Happy Saturday!! It's so been wet, and gloomy outside all week which means it's the perfect weather to craft in!

They're offering one winner any $18 print of their choice! Here's some colorFUL examples.

So fun and happy! I love all the little figures little faces and expressions!
Here's the print that I was inspired by

Here's my take on the piece! I was inspired by the gorgeous use of color, and the circular forms! I am in love with the circles.

I created my own tree from patterned paper and cut it out, along with 
punching circles from other patterned paper.

I hand cut small blades of grass, and inked them. I added
the ribbon treatment, tie some baker's twine around and thread the buttons

To get the watercolor effect, I inked all the patterned paper
pieces with a variety of chalk and dye inks.
