Falling into spring. Round 3.


Pen and ink Leaves. These are done with colored micron pens I picked up with my Christmas gift cards to the art store.

I love leaves. And I love that technique, too!!! :-D

Stippling is my fav. Normally I work in black and white, so this made me a bit nervous...especially expiramenting in someone else's book. Stephanie was so nice to include a note that encouraged expiramentation...so...away I went!

That would be such a relief--I wish I'd put such a note in mine--I get so nervous! YOU HAVE PERMISSION TO EXPERIMENT IN MINE, too!

And you can add that note for others.

Thanks Mary!

I haven't had the patience for the dots since high school. Kudos to you! Looks great!

Nice work. I love Micron pens. Great for this type of detailed work, although I don't have the patience for stippling. I sure do appreciate it when I see it, tho.

I like micron pens AND stippling, BUT I haven't had time lately to do it justice. I did a bunch of them in round 1.

I really like the technique! Good job here. :-D I like enlarging it and looking at the details.
