Butterflies and Morgan's Art World

Happy Happy Saturday My Dear Sweet Friends

I am so excited about today's post - I have some new things to share however first of all I want to share the project I made for Morgan Fitzsimon's Art World.


I absolutely loved coloring this beautiful butterfly image from Morgan Fitzsimons called Fae 18.  There are actually four different images however I chose just one for this project.  This is a altered wall hanging that I re-cycled into this finished project you see above.  It measures approximately 8" x 8".  The rest of the details of this project are at the end of this post.

If you would like to take a look at some of Morgan's gorgeous Art Work here is link:  Morgan Fitzsimons

There's a new Challenge Blog in Blogland coming soon along with a Blog Hop as well as introducing the Creative Team.  I am so delighted to (still) be a part of this team. We are now on Facebook under the name Morgan's Art World.   
It's a closed group however that doesn't mean you can't come over and join us. I will share more details as more information is available.  Here is the link to Morgan's FB page: 


and here is the link to the new Challenge Blog Website:


As you can tell there's a lot going on and we are looking forward to your joining us and joining in all the new things that are happening.  And last but not least here are the rest of the details about this project:

I can't believe I forgot to take a photo of the original wall hanging before I started altering it.  It wasn't until I have more than half way done that I realized I made my mistake.  There's nothing I can do about it now so I might as well stop kicking myself.  

1.  Lightly sanded the piece of wood.
2.  Used Mod Podge and glued down various cardstocks.
3.  Colored the butterfly with Copics.
4.  Fussy cut out the butterfly and added on top of cardstock.
5.  Sealed entire front of piece with Mod Podge.
6.  Added lace around top and bottom.
7.  Added flowers.

Copic colors used:

BV34, B95, B97
G21, G43, G46, G94
R81, R83, R85

Thanks so much for stopping by and saying hello.  I always appreciate the comments - it makes my day.  I really hope you will come over and join our FB group as well as our new challenge blog.  If you have any questions or need more information just let me know.

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…

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…
