Created by Hand - "Q"

Hi Everyone...I had a wonderful day off...or so to speak...and now I checked out a challenge over at Created by hand...so I used my watercolour ladies inspired by Marie Antoinette...the Queen of France and made this mixed media piece....I will have another piece sketched out tonight....Before I go to sleep I always sketch out something for fun and spend about 5-10 minutes on it....it is a fun habit I got into and it leaves my mind free from any sketch(y) thoughts while I sleep....hehehehe

Happy Tuesday!!!

Hi Diana,

that is a lovely thing to do, a sketch before going to sleep.
I love your Queens in Paris.

When i saw your drawing i immediatley thought of Sofia Coppola's movie about Marie Antoinette. The hair, the costumes...Gorgeous and don't get me started about the Eiffel Tower. We visit Paris frequently and that gorgeous city keeps amazing me.
Have a Fab day!
