Diva Challenge #95

iamthedivaczt
This week's Diva Challenge is guest-hosted by Courtney Frantz. Looking forward to the anniversary of Disney cartoon "Steamboat Willie," Courtney asked us to pay tribute to either Mickey, Minnie, or the man himself - Walter Elias Disney.
Several years ago I had an online scrapbook shop called Scrap Attack. I sold a lot of hand-made Disney paperbag scrapbook albums and a ton of paper pieced Disney characters and paraphernalia.
At our house, we are all about the Mouse! So this challenge wasn't really a challenge at all for me. It was a celebration of Mickey! I chose a variation of Enyshou and it just sort of took off from there! Thanks for the fun challenge, Courtney! You can check out all the wonderful pieces of Disney art on the Diva's page, and perhaps add one of your own!

  5. What a beautiful example of Enyshou! It worked great for Mickey's head, and I love it in that last photo with Mickey standing next to it =).

  6. Love the pattern you tangled with Mickey. I don't know that one Enyshou? Thank you for your comment on my blog and the great description of Tinkerbell flying down from the castle! That must really be exciting. I also took the Dion Dior Derwent Inktense Watercolor Pencil class and was also always behind! Your flowers are beautiful, so vibrant and glowing with color.
