Practicing with Pastels

I am not very good at using pastels, but I figure, if I practice, maybe it will come to me. The above was created for the WOJ Challenge #52 . Thank you Heather, this was a fun sketch to work with. I loved using my punch to lace the ribbon through the scalloped shapes.

As you can see, I used Willow, from the summer set. The apples and one of the strawberries are puffed up, but this can not be seen very easily with the angle of the picture I took.

Have a great Friday everyone, we are off to get the girls Halloween costumes tomorrow. They are pretty excited. One wants to be a pink cat, the other a mermaid. Although this may change once we get to the store.
