Windy, windy day!


My gosh, it's been windy here in Maine the last couple of days! The tree branches are bowing and bending and you can see fresh cut grass moving around on the ground. My desk at works looks out over a beautiful lawn with lots of trees and the leaves are every color of green you can imagine. But during the fall, the trees look like an artist's canvas with every bright color you could imagine. We won't talk about what they look like during winter because that's my least favorite season!

When I saw the grass whirling around from the wind, it made me want to go in and color up my Tilda with the whirling leaves. Summer is my favorite season, but I do so love the colors of fall. To see the beautiful colored leaves floating around in the air is such a beautiful experience and is like a picture in time. I knew I had to have this Tilda because of the leaves floating! I'm a leaf person!

I colored her with Prismacolor pencils and OMS and used my spica clear glitter pen on the leaves and the twirling air. And I've come to love my white opaque pen for her little freckles. Such a cutie this girl is. The background paper is from Me and my Big Ideas and I picked up the flowers at Walmart. Love them to pieces! The button is from a bunch I received from a friend on another list I'm on and it's the first time I've used them on a card. Love them and you'll be seeing more buttons! I know it's not autumn yet, but I so adore this Tilda! Enjoy and hold on to the summer for the short time that it's here!

No baby pictures? Come on Susan! Show the other baby pictures!:)

Love this Tilda! Reminds me of the Rothchilds coats I wore as a child. I think thats what I love most about Magnolias they really depict human experience's that we can all recall.

Great work Susan! Denise

Susan- can you tell me (a little detailed) how you got her dress to be so light in areas. I tried using the blender copic and I just don't get it to move the color- just makes it blotchy. Heidi
