SFF268 Mask Strips

                                                    This challenge is very interesting
                                            I did the masked strips with blue tape that
                                     I  had dragged the sticky side over my jeans first
                                Put the tape in place and sponged the open space with
                                                              two ink colors
                                        The owl decided to perch on th flower pot
                                      These are from MFP stamp sets Pots and Vases
                                                    and Animal Birthdays

Park for a lovely lunch and classroom presentations fabulous. I learned to ID the invasive over the closely matched natives , had no idea there were look a like out there Then we learned how to study and draw the plants It was a wonderful tiring day , and I only had to be pulled up one hill that this bad leg couldn't handle .
