Cool work on Daisy, Meimei.
I also tried Daisy with op's. 14x9cm. The black is a dermatograph marker.

Meimei, I like how you used a lighter bg against the pug's tan coat. It works!
Very adorable.

Christel, your blue bg does super with the yellowish tones of her body. What is a dermatograph?

Thanks Meimei, Hydie and Kay. Dermatograph marker is a oil based crayon that comes in a pencil shape with paper around it which you tear off as you need. Used for writing on glass, ceramics, boxes, etc.

Great pics! Hopefully I can participate this month, now that my "baby" started his last year of school!

I am personally not a dog person, but that puppy is cute!

Pugs are cute and I'm not a dog person either...had two chihuahuas growing up one of which was killed by neighbor's fox terrier, and the other peed on my Barbie dolls so he found a new home.

Re: September 2017, Monthly Challenge and Chat

Hi all. Back from vacation. My mom ended up being very ill so had to make some changes and it was very hard to leave but I'm glad I was there.

Loving the pugs, Meimei and Tuscanny! He is a cutie isn't he!
