A Couple of Weekend Projects

Hello! I hope everyone has had a fantastic weekend. Mine has been wonderfully relaxing! We went and saw a performance of Chess in Concert, saw a couple of movies and just hung out. I also got to spend some quality time with my Copics in my crafting area. Michelle Perkett is having a design team call, info can be found here. I decided to use one of my all time favorite images of hers, Willow the Autumn Fairy. She is gorgeous colored in autumn colors, but I love coloring this image with a variety of colors. Right now I am in a blue/teal mood, so those were the colors I chose to work with for this card. I love pairing those blues with black too. I added some satin ribbon, some pearls and some Prima flowers to complete my card. Her wings were painted with Twinkling H20 paints.

(Copics used: Dress - BG000, BG01, BG02, BG05, BG07, BG09, Hair - YR23, YR24, E07, E19, E29, Flowers - RV21, RV25, RV29, Leaves - G20, G24, G29)

I also decided to make this journal using another one of Michelle's images. I made this for the preteen daughter of one of my friends. Pink and green are her favorite colors. After coloring the dragonfly with Copics, I traced over all the drawing lines with a glitter pen. I added ribbons that can be tied to keep the journal closed and some pink and green blingy flowers along the side. Thanks for visiting today!
