The HAUNTING



Hello My Dear Sweet Friends

Happy Happy Wednesday!!  I sure hope your week has been going fabulous!!

I am really excited about the second CS Designs Challenge.  I have all the information listed below on the techniques and products used and I had such a wonderful time making this project. 



 This is an altered clipboard I found it at a yard sale many moons ago and added it to my collection.  I covered the front of it with the Collage Art Paint Background digital image from CS Designs.  I inked all the edges with black StazOn Ink.  I used the RAVEN digital image from CS Designs on top of soft beige cardstock and mounted it on top of the rust cardstock.  


I also inked with Black StazOn around the edges of both cardstocks.  I used more StazOn to help create a gloomy background as well as some old sewing batting I found in my daughters garage.  My goal was to have the batting give the appearance of Fog.  


My hubby allowed me to rob his vast array of beads so I could use these shrunken heads, chains, and skeleton face charm.  (Thanks honey!!)  Aren't they just FAB??  And I found an old sheet in the garage that I tore a strip from and inked it all over the create a mummy wrapping around the clip itself.  


This "Ghostly" young lady was so much fun to color with my copics. I used various shades of gray to color all of her except her face which was colored with a light light beige.  I wanted her to have a shimmery appearance and so I used my glitter pen to add some glittery shine on her hair, face, mouth and around the outside edges of her dress.

Putting this project together was so much FUN!!.

Here are the links to the other DT Blogs - I hope you will check out their projects for this second challenge from these talented ladies.

Cinderella goes Camo

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…
