Hydrangea Fairy by Aurora Wings - Challenge #27 - "Say It With Flowers"

Happy Saturday My Sweet Friends

Today I am sharing a project I made for the Aurora Wings Challenge (that ends today).  Yes, I am getting close to the deadline - but at least I got her entered into the challenge.  I used a gorgeous image called "Hydrangea Fairy with Flower Clusters.  I just love her but I was really stepping out of my comfort zone with her.  There was so much detail but it was fun and challenging and I am glad she is finished.  

I used so many different techniques on her.  I love how using clear gloss made the dots on the leaves look like raindrops.  I colored her with Copics and used chalk to create the background so it wouldn't be start white. I also used two different glitters to add some sparkle and bling around her wings.

I will be back later with the Copics colors I used.  They are sitting on my craft table but I am to tired and lazy to get up and get them all.  I will list them no later than tomorrow.

I appreciate your stopping by - and I hope my project has inspired you a little.  

With hugs and smiles
Laine Kammeraad

  1. I might have to be scarred if she was my wife or girlfriend and got upset. She might fly off the handle or something, haha. She and the flowers with the bling and the flowers with their dots of light are gorgeous. A lovely job again!!!

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…
