Saturday Snip-pix: Velveteen Rabbit

“Real isn't how you are made,' said the Skin Horse. 'It's a thing that happens to you. ... Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand.”

Saturday Snip-pixI reverted back to a classic for this. We’ve recently acquired a well loved horse I nicknamed Skin Horse who is fast becoming one of my daughter’s favorite toys, so it was only appropriate. I went with an antiqued look, and tried to get a font that was still clear and legible- since the leaves are a pretty busy background- but a little more old fashioned still.
