Saturday Inspiration Post - Morgan's Art World - Challenge 5

Happy Happy Saturday My Dear Sweet Friends

I sure hope your weekend has started off on a happy note.

Today I am sharing my Saturday Inspiration post with Morgan's Art World and the theme is Beachy Keen or Summertime.

This image by Judy Mastrangelo called "Dandelion Elf" melted my heart and I wanted to make a jewelry box.  It was a lot of fun to make and I am going to give it as a gift to a dear friend of mine (she doesn't know yet).

I used Copics to color him.  The colors I used are:

BV20, BV23, BV25
C1, C3, C5
E000, E00, E17, E23, E25
R20, R83, R85
YR21, YR23, YR25

(I also used chalks to color the blue sky and part of the grass).

First, I lightly sanded the box and painted it brown.  
I added various Cardstocks to the front and inside of the box using Mod Podge.
I also lined the bottom inside of the box with felt. 
Added the image to front and sealed with Mod Podge.
Used small metal decorative pieces on each corner.
Added the metal legs to the bottom of the box with thick glue and two small screws.

 I went back an added a metal butterfly to the front of the jewelry box. To be honest, I am not sure if I like the butterfly on it or not.  Which do you like best?

Thanks so much for stopping by - I always appreciate it.  There is still time to join in the challenge at Morgan's Art World.  The theme is Beachy Keen or Summertime.  I am looking forward to seeing your projects.

Have a great weekend!!

With hugs and smiles always

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…
