My Secret Garden for Make It Colourful

Hi friends :)

Here I am once again with another DT creation and this one is going to
Make It Colourful and the theme this time is creating blades of grass.
With that said I might of gone a little over board with the grass and it's become maybe a forest lol!!!! 
Nevertheless I had so much fun colouring this scene.It took me a few hours but I couldn't stop adding and adding.The size of my frame is 8x11 so it's pretty big.I coloured on the best paper evar from Make It crafty.

I tell ya  your copics love this paper.You know how easy it was to blend my colours.I really do enjoy this yummy-licious paper.As You can see I used every bit of a single sheet LOL! I can't let this paper go to waste!! PISSSSHHH!!

One time I printed and skipped my regular routine (print on copy paper first) and just threw in my MIC paper and when the images came out all cut off!!!!!!!!!!! I felt like I was dying....I couldn't breathe and all that lol!!! ((Rolling eyes)) this paper comes from far and having it is awesome.If I could keep it under my pillow when I go tot bed I will but then it will get wrinkly :O :(

Ok enough waffling and onto my frame.

Let's start by the yummy Make it crafty blending card. you could find some HERE
Then we have Laser Chipboard Flourishes .... I used fine swirls,Butterfly swirls, Butterfly leaves and you could find them HERE

The adorable digis enjoying the secret garden are 
New adorable Foxi Sprite could be found HERE  
and I had to fit cute JOJO and he can be found HERE and of course the awesome background that went well with Jojo right!!!! 
This is a new background and it's called Toadstool Garden and can be found HERE
the wood leaves altered with some paint are from Kaiser Kraft and the flowers are from WOC except the pink ones.I got those a while back from a candy I won a while while back lol! :)

here is just a picture of the image itself


side view

sorry for the amount of pictures.I just couldn't get it without the glare :( and since it's a bigger project than usual I had a hard time.

All righty and that's all folks.I hope you could jump in the challenge and if you have never tried creating blades of grass.I'll tell you reach for all the green tone marker/pencils etc you like and flicker flicker flicker.The more different tone of green you add the more natural it will look.THE KEY ELEMENT IS FLICKERING ON YOUR TIP OF THE MARKER(if you use marker).The thinner the more realistic I think LOL!

Have fun and YOU MUST STOP and visit the DT take on this because you will drop your jaws!!Goodness these ladies are GGGGUUUUUUDDDD!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by and c-you here again Monday :) (wink wink)
