Scraps of Elegance - Discover Me

The Sketch of the Month for November at Scraps of Elegance...

Now I must point out the butterflies. I've held onto a couple of my wins from Ms. Renea. I so totally love her butterflies. You must check out her Esty :

I loved painting my Dusty Attic Birds (DA0708). For the yellow I used some cheapo nail polish.

I also used modeling paste on a new mask and totally loved how it turned out.

I've taken many pics of my flowers. I love taking pics of my flowers.. sometimes I think they whisper....


Close ups:

My beautiful lady.. by the feathers..

Beauty and bling

Little Yellow Prima Roses

Will probably change this out after further editing.

I enjoyed using my new Martha Stewart Punch called Geometric Medallion.
Thanks for looking.
Hope you are able to take some time .. to hear the whispers..

Happy Scrappn
