 Happy Happy Saturday My Dear Sweet Friends

Well today is the last day of February (as long as you are reading this after 12 am on Saturday morning Pacific time). Are you ready for March?  I know I am although we have had an incredibly nice winter, so far anyway.  It's been pretty mild but I know it hasn't been that way for a lot of other areas around the US.  Sure hope for those of you going through the snow storms have been able to dig yourselves out of the snow by now.

Today I am sharing a project I made as a DT member for the Fitztown Challenge Blog.  It is now my amazing job to make and share an altered project every other Saturday.  For this week I decided to create and altered 4" x 4" canvas.  I absolutely love this image called Fae 6 and wanted to create something that really showcased this image.  And these images are so much fun to use Copics on.  

For this project I used (2) 4" x " canvas.
I painted them with black acrylic paint.
I added lace to the front and back of the canvas to make the closure tie.
Added cardstock to the front and back of each canvas using Super Tacky Tape.
I attached the Fae 6 on top of the cardstock also using Super Tacky Tape.
If you look closely to the Fae image you might be able to tell I did some paper piecing of her on top of another layer of cardstock.  
I added the lace around the border and used glue dots in a few places to keep the lace in place.
I used black ribbon around the outside borders to hide the work underneath.

On the second canvas I also added cardstock.
I printed out my sentiment and added it on top of another layer of cardstock.
Wrapped some ric rac and faux pearls around the edges and added to the first cardstock.
I added the two hinges to hold them together on the left edge.
I left the left side empty until I can find the image of my mom and attach it on top.
So for now I will just tie the two pieces of lace together and still be able to enjoy the amazing Fitztown Fae image on the front.  You can find more information about Fae 6 on the challenge blog as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by - I always appreciate it.

The February Challenge at Fitztown ends tomorrow and the March challenge begins March 1st.  The winners for the February challenge will be announced on March 5th.  

Copic Colors used are:

B00, 04, 05
E00, E00, E11

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…
