Trying something new with something old!

Hi everyone! Most of you know my coloring medium of choice would be Copic Markers but every once in awhile I will venture out with something  new. Today I colored my image using Faber-Castell colored pencils and I colored on canvas paper. Whoa, watch out! LOL I finally finished this birthday calendar project and I just need to figure out how to use the Bind-it-all machine I bought last year so I can put it together!

The image is from the Special Autumn set by The Greeting Farm available now at 7 Kids College Fund!! I think my favorite part of this image are her cute little boots!!! The papers and chipboard are all Bella Blvd. I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry to make sure the chipboard would stick as my mom will be using this calendar over and over. This is what I created for the month of December hence all the cute fall papers. 

Thanks for stopping by!
