Dream big...................................

Hello all and Happy Friday :)
My first post today is for The Octopode Factory challenge which this week is "mushrooms".  I'll admit that mine are pretty colourful for mushrooms but I'm sure that's how this little fella sees them too!  I made an inked and stitched background from an old dictionary page and then popped the various fungi and the dormouse (all Octopode digis) up with foam pads to give it a bit of depth.  The large mushroom was cut from watercolour paper which I painted, inked, stained and stitched! 
                  Why not make your next stop the TOFF site to check out the fabulous work from the rest of the DT?


I would also like to enter this into the following -

                   Thanks so much for popping in- would love to see you later on with my second post for The Outlawz :)
