I am pretty new to the blogging world, but have been papercrafting for years. This seems to be the trend now if you are a crafter is that you must have a blog. I hope that a few folks will consider visiting my blogspot and checking out my works of art. I attended my first crop day of the year and usually I make upwards of 15 to 20 cards on these days. This wasn't the case yesterday. I only made 7, yes just 7 cards. Mind you, I colored several and usually my main priority is to get the images I've already colored onto cards, but I had acquired a couple of new images and couldn't resist the temptation to bring them to life. Two of them were variations on a theme of Anti-Valentine's Day cards for my stepdaughter and her friend who are both single. It was fun creating them. The third was Peacock Masquerade by Stamps by AuroraWings' Mitzi Sato-Wiuff which I'm featuring below. I used my copics, Y28, Y23, Y26, YG67, G28, B37, E01, E21, E04, BG49, BG18, BG11,and some various gel pens for accents. I love masks, which started way back thanks to my mother. She loved them too and I still have some of her masks hanging on my office wall to this day. I have added a photo of them too for your viewing pleasure.
I do thoroughly enjoy this artist's work and have been mainly coloring digis that I've purchased from her store recently. That being said, if you are interested, she just launched her own challenge blog at: http://aurorawingschallenge.blogspot.com/ Feel free to pop over to her blog and check it out. While you are there, she is also giving away one of her amazingly beautiful digis called "Sisterhood"!!!
At some point when I am more adept at the blog challenges, I may join in a few of them. The competition seems fierce in these challenges, the creations these other ladies make are top notch and being my own worst critic I'm a little intimidated by this. I truly don't do this to compete anyway, just for the love of the craft so in the end it just makes me happy to create and share my work with my friends and family. Enough of my middle of the night ramblings, thank you if you have taken the time to stop by my blog and thank you even more if you should decide to leave a comment. I hope you have a wonderful week and until next time, enjoy the things that make you happy!
