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!!!

Cupcake and a Celebration

Hello Lovely Ladies
I hope your weekend has been fabulous thus far.  It's been sunny here with a cool breeze.  It's been a welcome relief from all the cold and rainy days.   Today I am sharing a card I made in celebration of a one year anniversary for Leigh S-B Designs.  She created this cute cupcake image in celebration as well as for a challenge of sorts. 
I created my heart shaped card and used lots of Washi tape to create the background.  I all used white Cardstock borders to help break up the color.  I colored the cupcake and the number ONE with Copic's. 
Here's the card I created:

Leigh congratulations on your first year anniversary.  I hope you have many more.  Your images are wonderful and fun to color.

Thanks for stopping by.  It always makes me smile

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…

It's Going To Be A Fabulous New Year

Hello My Lovelies
It seems I am always thrilled for the beginning of a new year. Time to put some things to rest and begin focusing on new dreams and goals.  I love pulling out my new 2018 planner and put it together and then filling up the pages, writing down my new dreams and goals as they pop into my brain.  Helps me stay more focused rather than feeling confused and lost. Plus there are some amazing new planners out there that make it fun and really pretty too.  My temporary move is behind me and hubby and I are feeling more settled.  My bronchitis and pneumonia are finally behind me and I couldn't be happier. 
I have decided to post my DT projects not only on my Hugs 4 The Heart Facebook group but coming back to begin posting here again as well. I hope you will come and visit me. I am also on Pinterest, Instagram and on Etsy.  I will be back tomorrow with all the links. My most exciting goal is get set up and doing lots of crafting videos too

Thanks for all your encouragement an…
