Share your Art…..

17 Mar

I was visiting Nancy blog and came accross this fun post and decided it would be fun to play along….
SHARE YOUR ART!! I was over at Nancy’s blog, Inkcicles, and she’s invited/challenged us to share our art!
Here’s how: The first 4 people to respond to this post will get something made by me! Could be a card with which I am really pleased, a pin I made, a doodle or something else all together LOL! My choice!
This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
1. I make no guarantees that you will like what I make although I hope you do!
2. What I create will be made with you in mind so you won’t get something I already made unless I think it suits you to a T.
3. It’ll be done sometime within the next 2 months.
4. You have no clue what it’s going to be.
5. The catch is that you must offer this blog candy on your blog! Re-post this on your blog, offer something you make – your choice – to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog (then come here and post). Oh wait make that the first 4 people cause I am #1 {giggle}
Yep be sure to add my name to the #1 line on your blog post – I am the first participant and I am already offering to share. When you create your give-away you will be the #1 spot for players 2-5 on your list. The first 4 people to post this on their blogs and leave a comment here telling me they did (I will go to your blog to check that you have this posted) will get an art share handmade item from me. Oh, and be sure to post a picture of what you win when you get it! SO ……………….who will be next????
1. Nancy
2. Carla

Many Blessings,
Mary

Wonderful Friend

16 Mar

Anna Wight illustrates the cutest stamps around. I just lovey her old school style! I used her Fish Friends set.
Again I used my Copic markers to color the image. I used some of the new Basic Grey DP as well….called Porcelain. The papers are beautiful and can be used for funky, fresh and fun along with the vintage, retro that the paper inspires when you first look at it. It’s one of my favorites! It’s very Victorian in style….which I love. =)
I have an encouraging story to share with you today.
God is ever faithful and right on time. I pray this brings you hope and encouragement!
The Perfect Result
Trials come in various categories.
They may be physical, emotional, financial, relational or spiritual. They may slip in unexpectedly and know on the door of you business, your church, or your home. They may arrive at any time or at any season. They may come suddenly, like a car accident or a natural catastrophe. They maybe prolongs, like a drawn-out court case or a lingering, nagging illness. Trials can be public in nature or very private. They can be directly related to our own sin, the sin of others, or not related to sin at all.
A trial can be like a rock hitting the water. You don’t cause the jolt, but you’re impacted by it. You’re just standing there, and suddenly the smooth lake of your life surges into giant waves and almost drowns you.
Frankly, some trials seem to blow in absolutely without reason. My brother, Orville, encountered something like that when a hurricane named Andrew blew through the community where he lived in south Florida a few years ago. It tore and ripped and screamed its way through, tearing his house apart. He had a great attitude, though. He called and said, “What an experience! It really did a lot of damage. But the good news is it tore down every one’s fences, so now we’ll get to meet our neighbors.”
“Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.”. James 1:2-4
James says we experience trials so that we may become “perfect and complete,” like a plant that has matured to its maximum growth and fruitfulness. That, he says, is the “perfect result” of “endurance.”
Most often, because of the discomfort, the pain, or the hardship, we try to cut our trials short – to put an end to them. Before long, we’re resenting them to such and extreme that we’ll try anything to escape, to run from them. Instead, James says, endure the trial; let it come to completion. When it does, you’ll be a better person for it.
From the book “Encouragement for Life” by Charles R. Swindoll.
Have a beautiful Monday and Many Blessings!

Chicken?

12 Mar

Good Evening! I just love this image from Whipper Snapper drawn by Anna Wight. I love Anna’s chickens…they are tooo adorable!

I made a few of these cards and have been sending them to some special people….those who will get my slightly twisted humor. LOL!

I used my Copics to color the chickens….it is a lot of fun learning how to use these markers. I do feel the urge to slosh some color on paper….so I think you will start seeing some more images colored via watercolor. Water coloring (AKA…Sloshing Color) is so therapeutic to me.

Well again I am going to have to make this post quick. I hope to be back on my normal posting schedule soon.

I hope you have a wonderful Friday full of God’s blessings!

This image cracks me up. My bestest friend, Meldoie and I have a little inside joke about calling each other “cow” terms of endearment. Such as Heifer, Bovine, My Moooo friend….etc. It’s a lot of fun.
When I come across a cute cow image I normally try to snatch it up do I can make some cards to give to my dearest and most favorite moooo friend. =)
I have been playing around with my Copic markers that I purchased from Gina K. It’s a lot of fun trying out different color combos….I still am way more comfortable with my watercolors…than with the Copics. Water coloring an image also has it’s own special look, which I really like. Coloring with Copics has an entirely different refreshing look and there are so many things you can do….but in the mean time I am only learning and can’t do all the cool tricks with Copics yet. LOL!
Well have a super great rest of the day!
Many Blessings!

I just lovey this set……….from Anna Wight and Whipper Snapper. I used my copics to color….super easy and tooo fun! I kept the card pretty simple. I used more layers than I normally do…but I don’t think it’s over done.
Not to much to say today…I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!
Many Blessings,
Mary

10 Feb

I just lovey this image drawn by the famous….Anna Wight. You can purchase her awesome stamps at Whipper Snapper.
This image is adorable. I love the chicken trying to balance on the dogs nose. I made this card for a friend of mine. I think she’ll love it.
I used my Copic markers. I purchased set A and C from Gina K. Gina has the best prices on Copic markers that I can find. I am new to Copics and am comfortable with my paint brush, water and reinkers. But I am learning how to use these nifty markers. They really are pretty cool. I am also using the 80lb Pure Luxury paper from Gina K too. Love the smooth texture. It really is luxurious for paper.
I am going to have to keep this short. Have a beautiful day!
Many Blessings,
Mary

Toucan

29 Oct

Well my boss purchased this toucan stamp from Whipper Snapper for me so I could make her some cards……This card looks a little plain because the sentiment is missing. I still need to add that to the card.

I will not be posting any new projects for a short season…things are getting ultra busy around here and I am going to take a break for about 3 days or so. I will see you then! (I have some more lighthouse cards to share with you.) =)

I hope everyone has an awesome weekend!

Many Blessings,

Mary
