President Reagan's Jelly Beans


Wendy presented such a fun, unique challenge on SCS: to remember a president. There were limitless possibilities, but I chose to remember Ronald Reagan's love for jelly beans! He always kept them on his desk and would even take them to meetings. The image is from an old SU set (don't even know its name) - colored with watercolor pencils and blended with a blender pen. The corner tulip die was CB'd with Elegant Eggplant CS. The colors are bolder than I normally use, but the DP dictated the choices. :-)
