FOCUS ... {Art by Mi Ran Showcase Blog}

{DT Project for Art by Miran}

Hope all of you are keeping well and having fun in April, yes can you believe it that 2015 has already progressed to April.  There must be a secret island where time is escaping too. Also wishing my bloggy friends who celebrate Easter a blessed Easter Celebration.

I have used this super cute little girl called  A CLOSER LOOK.  Do yourself a favour and hop over to Mi Ran's Etsy shop and check out her awesome digi creations, here.  You can purchase A CLOSER LOOK here

The theme over at Art by Mi Ran's Showcase Blog is MONOCHROMATIC for April.  I have coloured her with Copics and a white Derwent water colour pencil. The buttons, crochet flowers and design papers are from my stash. The folded corner embellishments have been created with circle punches.  The sentiment is from Paulette {Create with TLC} .
