Marching to the beat of my own drummer…that’s me! Let’s start off our Monday with a little band practice!

Birdie Brown, one of the designers with stamps at My Favorite Things, has such a great style – very cute images but not “too” cute, if you know what I mean? Like the Strike Up the Band set – her images are more like story book illustrations, rather than goofy drawings like some stamps. Plus I’ve been wanting to play with my Caran d’Ache Museum Aquarelle pencils – lots of fun to just scribble on a bit of color and move it with water! There are other brands that work great too (and much less expensively…favorites are Inktense) but these are my indulgence!  Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

In the stamp set, half the band members face one way, half the other….so the other parade is made up of mostly the drum section! On this one I tried reversing things  – colored ones and black and white outfits.
