I could spend all day in Birgit's gallery/blog. Her style is fabulous and since her blog goes back quite a way, after a few pages, I skipped to the beginning and started going forward. She has a little more going on in her earlier cards and I found THIS and was inspired by it because I loved the color.
Birgit also uses a lot of different mediums so I chose a couple I haven't used in a long time: pastels, chalk pencils and Prismacolor pencils. I also made this for a Serendipity challenge to use chalk and I was also inspired by an animated short film for the background. ( I know, kinda weird.)
Thanks so much for looking! Anyway, the description of what I did is a little long, so I put it on my blog if you're interested: The Write Stuff

I adore this! The subject matter is certainly close to my heart. I can see in your background a little of the NFB shorts I saw years ago. Probably my imagination but I'm not imagining how much I like this. Great tribute!
