The Greeting Farm – September Preview Day 1

Hey everyone! We are back for another set of previews for The Greeting Farm! This month’s release is amazing!!

I pulled out all my coloured pencils for this one. One thing I love about this medium is how friendly they all play together. Prismacolor, Polychromos and Luminance. I can mix them in endless ways to create tons of looks!

I think added a little bit of detail with a white Posca marker and added some stitching to finish it off. The sentiment comes from the Holiday Wishes stamp set.
