This is what I envisioned when I saw the sketch…sometimes your vision

doesn’t translate well…you get an idea…put it on paper…then…it isn’t what

you actually wanted it to be…I don’t normally do this…but, I want to show that

it can take a couple, to a few tries to get what you want.

Here was my first attempt…

100_5693

I am not in love with this at all!

But…it will go into my stash for a future use!

Just not into any contests!

 

Until the next Post…Blessings and Second Chances to you ALL!
