Fall is such a beautiful season with the colors, but it's so hard for me to give up the colors of summer. When I saw this Tilda in the Grass, I always thought of her as walking in wheat. After deciding on a Harvest theme for the October mingle, she was my only image that kept coming to mind. But I just couldn't bring myself to dress her in oranges, reds and browns. Like me, she's fighting losing what little bit of summer there was. Unfortunately, this is a battle we just can't win!

I colored her with my copics and used my nestabilities to cut her out and frame her. I love the Basic Grey paper I used for her. I used eucalyptus stickles for her wings and sponged the sky with my SU chalks. The ribbon is from Offray. I tried to keep her simple and clean. I hope you enjoy her. She's on her way to Lisa Cook and with her surgery, I hope she brightens up Lisa's day. Enjoy!
