Creative Tuesdays 'rooftops'

Hello Everyone ~

Here is a peak at a fun little drawing I am doing that is a bit different from the girls I usually do...


I do love anything whimsical, and was thinking of a village that children would love to visit, and my pencil created these cute little cottages in the woods!  I had a lot of fun coloring them
 in colors I would love to use in real life when painting my children's rooms!  I haven't gotten to that yet in our new house, but soon hopefully!  I just love color!

Hope you are all having a fun week and enjoying creativity in whatever you are doing!

PS: Heather saw this and suggested I post it for Creative Tuesdays over at Mr. Toast's so this will be my first time participating in this lovely art co-op!  Do pop over and check out the other participants!

Hugs and smiles
Julia

Such cute little cottages! My first thought was of little circus tents set up in a field for a carnival.

This is such a fun drawing. I love the middle house, it looks like it's having a party all by iteself and dancing to the music.

I LOVE this!! Forget kids- I want to go!! My favorite is the wavy pink and blue one in the middle. It looks like you could eat it or something! Also, I adore the tree designs!! Fabulous job!
