Just Magnolia Sketch and Play Along Monday Challenge...

Afternoon Ladies and I hope you are enjoying the weekend weather.
Saturday is a stay at home and clean up...tidy up films...make cards kind of day for me. So I have done my chores and I'm just waiting for a friend to pop in for a cuppa and a chat. Just finished my 'Just Magnolia Sketch' and I really went all out Autumn on this one...also while blog hopping found a new Challenge blog called 'Play along Monday' run by Karen Wilson and the challenge this week has been 'Leaves'

I used all my earth tone Promarkers to colour this Tilda in and did some shading with a soft grey blendable pencil.

I found this little silver Acorn charm in a button box and I bought it when I was at Art College from John Lewis in Reading. Many years ago......

Another close up....

I don't yet own a Martha Stewart punch so I used my deckle edge scissors which I haven't used for ages but really love the effect...
So I hope you like all my photos and have a nice evening...I shall be watching part two of Strictly and X Factor...Bye for now
