Illustration Friday: 100%



100 percent Prismacolor pencil for Illustration Friday's "100 %" theme. This is cute, it will be a diecut and when you turn one of the corners of the lawn it stands up as a decoration or place holder. I will post it again once it's been printed and cut. 100% home too.

I think you must take idea supplements with your daily vitamins! These will sell themselves once they are produced!

andrea said...

Tha almost vignette look to this adds to the coziness. It's lovely. (And I seem to have completley missed this week's topic -- didn't even know it was 100% until I visited you!)

Val, you really know your way around a prismacolor pencil. I'm impressed that your little house is 100% pencil. I always have to add watercolor to cover up my lack of prowess, hee hee.

Great job!!

Andrea said...

wow! lovely work!

imwithsully said...

Thanks for your lovely comment on the "old lady post" :)

Toni said...

Hey Val I'm bringing up the rear. ha
I think this is the first time I've seen you use colored pencils. Cute!

I would love to see the die cut when you are done.

Faruffa said...

Another beautiful dream house, with the addition of a nice idea to use, you are great !!!
Ciao :o)

Simply gorgeous and cute and it ought to be edible too!

This is wonderful! I love how it looks kind of grainy. Very nice.
