Silly Condo's

Happy Monday My Dear Sweet Friends

Today I am sharing my DT project from artist Sandra Caldwell called #888 Silly Condos.  I absolutely love this image and wanted to do something different with this DT project.

The first time I worked with the image I just colored it with Copics.  I wasn't happy with it and it didn't have the look I was wanting.  And then it occurred to me - "What about paper piecing?" along with coloring.  And that's what I did and I love the look.  It makes me smile every time I look at it and I hope it does the same for you.

As you can see I did a lot of printing on different card stocks and had a blast taking all the different pieces of the condo puzzle and putting it all together.  I wanted what I created to live up to this images name "silly condo's: and I am happy with it.  I also used a few of my Copics to add some shading.

I will add the link to this image in Sandra's Etsy Shop once it has been listed.  

I appreciate your taking time to stop by and leaving a comment.  It always makes my day.

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…

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…
