Battenburg Lace Fan

Again, I used dark mysterious jewel tones. If I did it over, I'd lighten my background to show off the fan to better advantage.

I should warn you, since I've learned the hard way, that dark blue pencil colors often give off a lot of dust that tends to muddy the colors around it. Sweeping off the dust with an artist's brush, or blowing it off doesn't prevent the smearing from taking place. I would suggest doing those particular blues first, then using a kneaded eraser to take off what dust you can before you lay in other colors.

Battenburg lace is usually white or ecru, so I took a lot of artistic license using red, blue, and green instead. You can do whatever you like in your pictures. :) Have fun!
