Make A Wish - Under the Sea

Hello My Sweet Friends

Happy Happy Saturday.  

Today I am sharing the project I made for the Aurora Wings Challenge.  The theme is "Make a Wish".  

I found these two images called Fancy Goldfish and just changed the sizes of them so I could create a happy underworld scene.  I just love these images and have been wanting to create something with them for quite some time now.  

I decided to make a Mixed Media Piece.  All the fish were colored with Tim Holz Distress Inks.  I created the scene on the right with a chunk of  cork along with some cheese cloth along with buttons, chipboard shapes and other things to create the background on the right side and along the entire bottom.  I also used bubble wrap, lots of Gesso, Crackle Paste and Ultra Mat Gel.  I used Dazzling Metallic Paints in the following colors; Copper, Shimmering Silver, Splendid Gold, Teal and Festive Gold.  I also used some blue felt flowers and even some buttons.  

I shared this project at:

Donna-Marie's Coloring World

I am entering this project into the following challenges:

Color It Create It Show It April Challenge

I hope you feel inspired to create something and if you do, let me know.  I would love to see it.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I really appreciate it and your comments make my day.

With hugs and smiles

  1. This is a gorgeous project, Laine! I love how you used the goldfish digis printed in different sizes to create the illusion of depth. The seascape is also gorgeous - great colors and textures. Thank you for joining our 'Make a Wish' challenge at Aurora Wings. Mitzi xx

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…
