Welcome to what could be the start of a fab weekend!

Morning all,

How's your week been? How's your weekend LIKELY to be? Hope it's a good one! Woken to a brilliant sunshiney morning but with a good thick frost which won't last long because of the sunshine - HUZZAH!

I've had a bit of bother with my mojo this week ... t hink it's been cowering in the corner - presumably missing the sunshine! I tried stepping away from the crafting and having a  bit of a reorganisation of the crafting space instead and eventually took an image I recently coloured with coloured pencils and made in to an ATC.....

Materials used:
  • ATC blank
  • Snippet of white card on to which I stamped the Sugar Nellie image using Ranger Archival watering can ink
  • Crayola coloured pencils used to colour the image and then blended with sansodor and a paper stump
  • Light and dark blue Maped Gel crayons (like Distress crayons) scribbled around the outside of the image and blended with a moistened finger
  • Pilot glitter gel markers in silver, red and blue scribbled around the ATC and blended with a moistened finger, to give the ATC a little shine and twinkle
  • Paper Artsy splatter stamped using Memento Mediterranean blue ink
  • Using an "S" thickness Faber Castell pitt pen I doodled a border and then, with a white gel pen, I added some highlights to the umbrella, boots and puddle

I'll be entering the above make for the following challenges:-
  1. Crafting by Design - January 18th challenge - ANYTHING THAT SHINES
  2. Kraftin' Kimmie - Wonderful Wednesday - Jan 18th - ANYTHING GOES
  3. Penny's challenge - challenge No. 312 - ANYTHING GOES

Nothing like playing in the puddles! We've got lots of them around here to play in now and our drought is officially over!! I think it was brill to turn your beautifully colored darling into an ATC! And I hope your reorg has brought your mojo back! If not, there is always the sunshine to enjoy!! Hugs, Darnell
