Peony Bouquet

Update:  June 2 - I just found out I won an honorable mention from Mitzi Sato-Wiuff owner of Stamps by Aurora Wings.  Thanks so much Mitzi.  

Happy Monday My Sweet Friends

It's Memorial Day here in the U.S. and a day of reflection in honor of those brave men and women who gave the ultimate sacrifice to keep us safe.  They are true heroes.  

Peonies are one of my most favorite flowers.  I used a digital image from very talented artist Mitzi Sato-Wiuff.  I colored it with Copics and am pretty happy with the results.  I did color the inside of the flower with a goldish yellow however you can't see that in this photo.  I decided it was time to jump into the deep end and just have fun.  It was a liberating experience and I am so eager to keep learning and grow stronger in my artistic skills.  

I used the following Copic colors:

G05, 07, 09
RV21, 23, 25, 29
Y32, 35, 38

You can find this gorgeous image and so many other's at Mitzi's Etsy Shop and here are the links:

I really appreciate your taking the time to stop by and saying hello.  Your comments and feedback mean the world to me.

  1. Beautiful coloring on the Peony image, Laine! I love how you put the peonies against the pink and black stripes for a bold and unforgettable look. It's also nice to see a mention of the Memorial Day for what it really means. I see people treat this day like the 'first opportunity to get out of town' and nothing else all too often. Thank you for joining our challenge at Aurora Wings! Mitzi xx

  2. Awesome colouring and on the striped background is such a win! Peonies are defo one of my favourites too. Glad you are enjoying colouring, it's worked out great :)

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…
