Design Dollies Trifecta entry

This page was inpired by the three challenges this week at the design dollies blog - sketch, color and elements. The elements challenge was to use the song 'my favorite things' from the sound of music. I used the 'raindrops on roses' line and represented it with the blue drops of glimmer mist. I also used the 'brown paper packages tied up with string' line and represented it with the string tied around the photo. then I noticed that there were a lot of colors mentioned in the song and I put them all together - silver, white, brown, blue, copper, etc - and interpreted that into my subject and photo. Initially I lined up all the crayons and pencils of different colors to represent all the colors in the song, but then I editied it so much in photoshop that now you really can't tell. On the other hand, doing art with my daughter is definitely one of my favorite things in the world, so the whole theme is about one of my favorite things.

Here is the color and sketch inspiration:
