Happy Fourth of July weekend to all of our stateside fans! Hurricane Arthur put a little bit of a damper on some things, but we hope you all had a wonderful weekend overall. We have a fun new challenge for you at The Corrosive Challenge Blog, sponsored by A & T Designs, home of the Emerald Faeries. The theme is "forever young" - Create a project for a baby, child, or even the young at heart.
These faeries are just the sweetest, most darling images! The team had four to choose from for this one. It was no easy task choosing, but I had a recipient in mind for this one who loves to read, and her twin girls have become avid readers as well, so I went with Bindie.
I just love how this turned out! I pulled out another old sketch from a folder I have full of them, from Sketch Saturday.
She is colored with Copics, and I cut out a cloud shape and sponged the sky with some ink. I printed the image twice, and cut out and popped up the lady bugs and dragonfly for a little more dimension. Papers were from stash, the floral one is Echo Park "Sweet Summertime" and the rainbow stripe is Recollections. The "So Happy" is a Studio G epoxy brad.
I hope everyone's 4th of July plans weren't ruined completely, I know I enjoyed a day to just be at home and get some crafting, cleaning, and family time in. Looking forward to seeing some "Forever Young" entries at The Corrosive Challenge.
Thanks for stopping by!
