Flower Ballerina

Hello,  our move from Arizona to Auburn - Syracuse New York is in full force!  My art room is packed, except my markers and printer.  The rest of the house is almost packed.  We are flying to New York this week to look at properties.  Returning home for a few short days and then the journey across the country begins.

I've not touched my markers in two weeks!  Last night I was in need of therapy...LOL  I sat in the living room with my husband while we watched TV and I colored this Flower Ballerina.

Talk about much needed therapy!  I slept like a baby last night.  I am glad I hadn't packed the airbrush machine.  After coloring the skin, I free handed with the airbrush wherever there were flowers.  Then going back in and detailing.

Here is the Color Palette...Feel free to Pin It :)


A little sneak peak from Stampendous

Hello :)  CHA has come and gone which means one thing.  Stampendous biggest release of the year is here.  We are sharing a little peak at what is new all week.  Hop on over to the Stampendous Blog to each day to catch up with the rest of the design team.

New is the P221 Sweet Sunflower.  It's a smaller version of the Jumbo Sunflower and I love it!!!  I used it to create a mini album cover.  It's colored with Copic Markers and Fran-taged.  I have all the products listed below so you can easily re-create this project.

Here is the Color Palette....feel free to pin it :)


Tiddly Inks Tag Challenge

It's time to start a new challenge at Tiddly Inks!
This time we are creating TAGS!!!

Yes, this is a tag.  Actually it is two tags made into a card :)  Super easy to do...
  1. Take two identical tags.  They can measure whatever you like.  
  2. Cut 1/2"  off the left margin of one tag.  This will become the "top tag"
  3. Score the "top tag" just below the punched hole and fold.
  4. Cover the bottom tag with desired pattern paper.  Then the "top tag"
  5. Line up the bottom right corners and right edge.  Adhere with adhesive.  I used strong double sided tape.
  6. You should have enough margin left on the bottom tag to thread ribbon through the hole as shown above. 
There you have a tag card

Now for the flowers.  Yes I made these as well....
The flower comes from May Arts Ribbon.
  1. I air brushed the center of the flower to match my image.  You can spritz or color how you wish.
  2. Fold all pedals toward the middle as shown in the center photo and twist.
  3. Stich into place.  Make sure it is secure.
  4. Fold out and shape petals.  Add pearl center or glitter or whatever you wish.
