Summer time on a Tuesday with Mr Toast :)

Mr Toast aka Mmm gave us 3 weeks for this Tuesday's challenge - Summer break - and as I finally started to turn last summers sketches into line art I decided "Yes, I will do it".  Granted this morning at 10 the pieces for the above all over the room and not put together nor the painting finished :) 
This little piece is done with water colour (from watercolour pastels ,which I don't think I like as they seem to come off the paper when dry) and colour pencils.
And of course there is a cut an paste element to it :)
Hope you have great week and pop my Mr. Toast 's Creative Tuesday and join the fun :)
Cheers

Last Tuesday, I somehow missed your link, and when I saw your adorable painting on the montage, I ask Mr. Toast...who did this cute cute entry, and he gave me your link.

So glad you have joined us...I find this a real highlight in my Art Life.
