YOUR SPECIAL DAY {Art by Miran Challenge 9}

{Guest DT Project for Art by Miran's Challenge 9}
  
Art by Miran is launching their 9th challenge today. All their challenges are always ANYTHING GOES as long as your project has a hand coloured image. So hop over here to have a look at their seventh challenge.

Also visit Mi Ran's Showcase blog {Art by Miran} here, for some more inspiration.

I have used this cute girl called  AUTUMN'S MEMOIRES created by the talented Mi Ran.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.   You can purchase AUTUMN'S MEMOIRS  here.

The images have been coloured with Copics and dry chalks. The buttons are from my stash. The design paper are from FabScraps. The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.  I have cropped one of the leaves from the main image in Photoshop and enlarged and duplicated it for the leaf embellishments.



I would love to enter this into the following challenges:





  • Sister Act: Anything Goes
  • 613 Avenue Create: Anything Goes with Optional Twist

    50. Hi, Desire, ek het 'n redelike besige naweek agter die rug, maar kan nou gou bietjie by almal kuier hier in Blogland!!!
      Jou kaartjie is pragtig - ek is mal oor al die herfsblare - so goed ingekleur - en ek voel omtrent daai windjie waai!!! En die pragtige meisie lyk net so mooi!!! Jou keuse van dp is perfek en ek hou baie van die blou saam met die bruine. Ek het al so baie gedink ek moet vir my ook Copics kry, maar het nog nooit so ver gekom nie. Ek doen nie regtig eintlik inkleurwerk nie, maar dit sal seker 'n geval wees van as mens eers die Copics het weet jy nie hoe jy sonder dit klaargekom het nie!!!
      Die knopies lyk te skattig!!! Pragtige gedoen!!!

      Groete en 'n lekker week!!!
