CHALLENGE {Art by Miran Showcase}

{DT Project for Art by Miran}

Our theme for August is BACK TO SCHOOL.

I have been crafty again and this time with this gorgeous girl called SCHOOL GIRL DAISY created by the talented Mi Ran.  She really looks like she is up for a challenge.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.  You can purchase SCHOOL GIRL DAISY here.

No surprise then once again, as I stuck to my favourite centre step design.  The flower embellishments have been created with flower punches. She has been coloured with Copics. Her hair has been coloured and cropped separately and overlaid on the original image with foam tape, to create some dimension.  The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC}.  The design paper is from Little Yellow Bicycle and the buttons and ribbon are from my stash.
