say hello to, Olive...



(image by Mayu colour swatch by Rachel Follett)





Olive is a very crafty girl, she is always making things... sewing, designing, cutting, inventing, creating, drawing, planning, attaching, imagining, gluing, devising, constructing, altering, thinking... 

She makes all of her sisters lovely dresses, although some of her hat designs have never seen the light of day as they are far too extravagant and not particularly practical.  She has even designed a few outfits for the dark beast, much to the horror of her sisters.  But Olive's thinking is that even baddies need to feel good in what they wear (Olive is very kind like that).

I am thinking of adding some soft blue/green tones in the background and a few essential crafty tools to her tool belt.

Hello Olive. She is so sweet. She looks like she grew up on a farm in Western Kansas. Or maybe Oklahoma. Gorgeous colors! That is a great idea...a tool belt...maybe with a pair of scissors and a tape measure dangling off of it.

Blessings!
