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

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)
