"Trading Smiles"

EDM Challenge #232
Draw The Last Thing You Bought
First the puzzling twine
over the page relates
to the thought that we
are all tied to things that
impact our lives and
other's. This was my first
time in this store and the
clerk's friendly personality
was such a bonus. She asked
the question on the page and
I replied I might use the photo when
illustrating a journal page,,,so
smiles were exchanged and
life felt good.
The flowers were potted out front
and their purpleness
was so inviting to me.
The watermelons were piled in front
in great arrangements as
the store has very talented people
working for them.
Two purchases I came home
eager to try, were the Triple Ginger
bucket of cookies and bag of
Crystallized ginger, my grandmother
also called one her favorites

Wonderful journal page - just lovely! And I love Trader Joe's, too...I'm firmly convinced they hire the nicest people in the world to work there...

This is making me hungry! I love ginger too and this is another wonderful page!

There is an award over on my blog with your name on it if you'd like to stop by!

Such a fabulous interpretation of the challenge. I love your muted colors and how you always fill up the full spread.

Great figure drawing - and I love her expression!
My father's brother used to give my parents a pot of ginger in syrup each Christmas. They would both thank him, my father with a twinkle in his eye. What my uncle never knew was that my mother detested ginger!

Winna everything you create is so mesmorizing - you should illustrate books!! And I have never been to a Trader Joes - I want to go!!

Claire M said...
