Scarecrow and His Wagon

Coffee of the Day - Texas Turtle

As I had mentioned the other day, Squigglefly has released some gorgeous new images by Marla Shega. So of course I had to go pick up a few on Saturday, and this wonderful 'Scarecrow on his Wagon' was first on the list! I love Fall, as you know, and this scene sets the stage so beautifully. It really was easy to color, even with my tiny watercolor brushes. It was the putting the card together that proved a challenge for me...... ever have projects like that where your creativity just seems to be on vaca or on coffee break (if only..... giggles!), or otherwise MISSING?!?!?!

I struggled with the card ALL DAY LONG - nothing seemed to go right, look right, feel right... nothing. so I took a nap in the late afternoon and finally just put it together. still think it is 'okay', but not fantastic. but I DO love the artwork Marla has drawn. so I will give it a go again when my stmaping mojo has returned...... perhaps a trip to Starbucks is where I will find my inspiration? tee hee!

everyone have a wonderful day!

oh Jennifer your watercoloring on this is fantastic! I really love it. I think the paper you used is the perfect match to the color of the mums and pumpkins on the wagon, and I love the little fabric flower!
