"Go Green" and a DRAGON

Happy Saturday My Dear Sweet Friends

I have been spoiled the last several days with glorious sunny weather.  And right now its a little gloomy and probably some rain on the way.  How about you?  How has your weather been treating you??

Today I am sharing a DT project with Fitztown for the current challenge.  I am loving posting a new Saturday project every other week.  And this is my newest one.

This is an altered trinket box I created using Fae #22 and this was an amazing digital image to work with.  My Copics were screaming at me to get busy creating.  And creating this altered box really was a lot of fun.

To create this project I:

  • Sanded the box.
  • Painted all of it - inside and out.
  • Added cardstock around the entire box (except lid sides).
  • Used Mod Podge to seal it.
  • Added a border of cardstock to the top of lid.
  • Colored image with Copics.
  • Cut out Image.
  • Added Image to top of Box.
  • Sealed with Mod Podge.
  • Added another coat of Mod Podge to entire box.
  • Added lace around side of the top lid.
  • Added cardstock to inside of box.
  • Sealed it all with two coats of Mod Podge.

And that's all there is to it.  It's an easy project but does take a little time for all the drying time of paint as well as Mod Podge.

Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you will join in our challenge and looking forward to seeing your creations.

  3. WOW, what a magnificent dragon, Laine! I'll have to go check that one out for my granddaughter who loves all things 'dragon.' Fantastic coloring and I love the box. FYI, if you'll ship some of that rain south to where you used to live, I'll report that we're slated to have record high temps of 90 this weekend. Yuck! I'll take your rain. :-D

    1. Oh my goodness NC I do not envy you the 90 degree temperature. I would be melting - I just can't handle the CA heat any more. Sucks the life right out of me. I would send you rain if I could - I know CA really needs it. We sure having had our usual amount of rain this year but at least we are getting some. And I will let you in on a little secret - I really enjoy the rain too. It's funny about sunshine in WA state - everybody goes nuts and looks for things to do outside and soak it up while they can.

      Thanks for the sweet comments too NC - it really makes my day.

      Lots of hugs, smiles and sending some rain your way.

  4. Oh my this is just gorgeous, I love the colors and the idea of a box that way you can see it all the time. That's a lot of fussy cutting but oh so worth it. I have been debating on this image.. now I just might get it next time.

    1. Hi Billie - thanks so much for the wonderfully sweet comment. I do appreciate it. Yes, there was some fussy cutting going on but its something I always enjoy doing. This is a fabulous image to play around with - I hope you do give it some more thought and consider getting it. I don't think you will regret it.

      With hugs and smiles

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…
