Enjoy quiet moments........ C stands for........

C stands for  Calf 
A page this morning for 

and Rike's theme of Animals A to Z

I am lucky to get passed old used  calendars  from friends who know I can  use them in other ways.. 
This one had some lovely country scenes and animals, just right for me to use for this page and theme .
I liked this calendar so much we bought the one for this year and it is hanging in my kitchen.

Isn't this calf sweet chewing on some tasty grass.
The background is  coloured with oxide inks.
I decided not to fussy cut the cow, so he was simply torn and stuck down.
I used a stencil  for some texture in the background.
On the left are some of the photos I took of the stages.

The words are computer generated and I couldn't resist adding the tiny ant.

Thank you for calling in today, you are always very welcome here.



  1. This calf is really sweet and I love how you have used the lovely illustration! Brilliant with the texture!
    Wishing you some quiet enjoyable moments today and say THANK YOU VERY MUCH Yvonne for this lovey entry for Animals from A to Z!
