Mix It Monthly - A Funny Hat

Wow! It's cold here in South Carolina! Here is a picture of our thermometer at 10 degrees yesterday morning on our covered porch. It did get colder than that. The wind chill made it feel like 10 to 20 below zero! Now that is cold for South Carolina. They said we have not been this cold in 20 years. I remember 20 years ago when we had friends from Florida visit. They could not believe how cold it was and this year it was colder than that year. I am glad to see our two poor horses survived the cold and look forward to it getting warmer as the week goes on.
 
I finally had time to do some art yesterday while I sat in my warm house. Thank goodness the heat and power were on at our house! I did a butterfly princess. She loves her butterfly hat that I made her for the Mix It Monthly challenge. In fact, she is tickled pink! The colors we were to use were orange, hibiscus, and violet. My sister gave me new watercolors for Christmas and the colors are so vibrant for water colors, especially that wonderful orange! The butterflies are stamped and cut out and colored with hibiscus and violet. What a fun painting this was to do! Do you think that she might look a little like Miley? That was not intentionally but just the way it turned out.
