One of my favorite quotes is one that Christopher Robin gave to Winnie the Pooh: "Promise me you'll always remember...You're braver than you believe and stronger than you seem and smarter than you think." When Joni announced our Raise the Bar challenge is "BEARS" in celebration of "Have a Party With Your Bear" Day today, I knew I wanted to use this quote. I have no Pooh stamps, so I went to Google images and searched for a coloring page and found this one. The sentiment was also found in Google images. Using the Copic Coloring Guide: Level 2 Nature book for reference, I tackled the tree and grass using a different than norm technique...scribbling vs. blending the colors! The felt rolled flower was topped with a button and twine. For more details and for more inspiration from the other bartenders, head on over to the Raise the Bar blog and check it all out! Hope to see you joining in this week...I can "bearly" wait! (grin)
