Challenge 16 - Fruitylicious - Tuesday Alchemy

Happy Happy Tuesday!!!

It still seems like Monday to me - I guess three day weekends still throw me off a little.  Spent the weekend moving everything out of storage and into my sister's garage.  Fortunately the weather was a little cooler which made the project a little more tolerable.

This weeks challenge with Tuesday Alchemy is called "Fruitylicious" and I really hope you decide to join in this month.  We have a terrific prize and personally I would love to see what ideas everyone comes up with.

My sister has a bowl of decorative fruit on one of her tables in the kitchen and for some reason I am fascinated by it.  If that sounds odd to you - well in a way it does to me too but I wanted to see where this creative journey would take me.

I love all the colors, textures, and shapes.  I guess you can say it appeals to me on an artistic level and I wanted to make something for this challenge with that image.  I decided to take some photographs of the bowl of fruit and I thought it would make a great key holder my sister can use as a decorative element in her kitchen area.  She loves it and even though it was a really simple project in a lot of ways there is something really rewarding about this one.

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

You are Mer-Mazing!!!

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
