I've been loving the ombre trend....


The Faber-Castell Aquarelles make it so easy to achieve the look.  It's amazing how vibrant the colors become once water hits them.  


I was trying to give Little Squirrel Girl a more artsy look but may have gone a smidge overboard with her blush?  I kind of like the bold color and decided to bring it out even more with the Simple Stories raspberry patterned panel.  The yellow stripes = washi!


100 Proof Press has 2013 calendars in stock!  What awesome gifties!!!!

Now hippety off to Rita's blog
