Hand Drawn

Good Friday to you! When I was younger and before I found the hobby of paper crafting I dabbled in drawing and painting a bit. I was never that great at it, but my drawings of flowers and animals were pretty good. So, I decided to try my hand at it again after years of not doing it and the above image on my little wall hanging is what came about. I love flowers and so it felt natural to draw a flower image again. I must say I am very pleased at the outcome. I first drew it in very light pencil and then colored it in with Prismacolor pencils and did some very fine outlining in black pen. The sentiment is from Cornish Heritage Farms, Scripture Essentials. I just love that set! This is going to hang on my wall right by my scrap desk so I can read that scripture more often. I hope you like it:) Leave me a comment would you?! Oh, and be on the look out for some blog candy as I have reached and passed the 5,000 hit mark! Thanks so much for coming to visit!
